Dual Shot feature rumored to be coming to the Apple iPhone 5S
As the smartphone rivalry between Samsung and Apple reaches new levels with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4, and a rumored delay in the release of the next iteration of the Apple iPhone, the climate is perfect for a series of rumors and speculation. One rumor comes from a software engineer who claims to have worked on the team responsible for the camera on the next iPhone. According to the engineer, the Apple iPhone 5S will come with a 2MP front facing camera compared to the 1.3MP snapper that currently adorns the front of the Apple iPhone 5.

The front-facing camera on the next Apple iPhone will allegedly have a 2MP sensor

Besides bringing FHD video capture to the camera on front of the next Apple iPhone, the software engineer also says that a feature called Dual Shot will be coming to iOS 7. This will allow a picture or video to be taken using both the back and front cameras at the same time. If this sounds familiar to you, it should. Both Samsung and LG have announced similar features for their latest top-shelf Android models.

According to the software engineer, the feature for iOS 7 is still undergoing tests and will not be a part of the initial release of iOS 7 unless it is out of beta by the time it is introduced at WWDC in June. Otherwise, it will be a major feature for iOS 7.1. Dual Shot will be available only on the Apple iPhone 5S similar to the way that the new Panorama feature is limited to the Apple iPhone 5.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

Ha! lets get serious, they are just trying to put out something "new" to the Iphone so they have something to talk about for an hour in the next key note.

Agree. I couldnt think of a reason why i would want to snap pic/record vid by using both cameras at one time.

Its useless for most users, it is good for bloggers and such though. All the innovation is leaving phones and now its just turning into gimmicks like desktops/laptops have been for years.

Yeah, and to add salt to the wound, it is sounding like iOS v. 7.0 is not going to be the compelling release. To get the good stuff, users will have to wait for v. 7.1. When does 7.1 ship? 2014?

And people wonder why Apple's share price is down.

Is it a lot better on the Android side when it comes to OS upgrades? When Google anounces KLP, when does it reach the consumer?

It doesn't matter really. Android 2.3 Gingerbread is better & more complex than the current iOS. Apple's OS is becoming the laughing stock of the mobile world.

Just like Droid_X_Doug cleverly said....

"And people wonder why Apple's share price is down."

+1 to Droid_X_Doug

Ah yes. How's that 2% Jelly Bean 4.2 market share treating you guys?

I don't own any APPL shares so why should their stock conern me? Do you own any stocks?

That number is going to rise and rise as the Galaxy S4 releases and HTC updates The One.

How's Siri on the iPhone 3GS and 4? How's panorama on iPhone 3GS and 4?

When an Android phone gets an update, it gets all the features part of the OS update, not just 1 or 2 like on Apple products. I love how you forgot to mention that. Nice try though.

I am an Android power user that roots. I have NEVER had a problem being on the latest and greatest. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is the norm now on most phones in the Android eco system.

Fact is that iOS is still looking, acting & just stagnant as it was back in 2007. The only differences iOS has now are direct ripoffs of Android.

Black Berry was king of the world & rested on their laurels & look at them now. At the very least Black Berry's latest OS has WAY more to offer than iOS. Shoot even WP8 is way more compelling than iOS.

How is your over 6 year old iOS treating you? It must terrible to look at the same thing for more than half a decade. :(

I'd have preferred a dual shot feature where you can take photos of the front (boobs) and back (ass) at the same time. Dont ask me how, i havent figured it out myself either.

Well, you've got to make a phone consisting of two parts connected by bluetooth or something.
Make the front cam detachable...another to the front and the other one to the back. You got yourself a boobass!!

Is this used when you lose your phone and are trying to determine who took it? Can't really see another use for something like this.
