Dual Shot feature rumored to be coming to the Apple iPhone 5S
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.

Try saying that in a Samsung related article and you're doomed!! Lol...

Uh, oh! Samsung and LG is gonna sue Apple..........
33. jibraihimi (Posts: 695; Member since: 29 Nov 2011)
Or maybe Apple will sue LG and Samsung, claiming that they patented this 'Dual shot' feature 10yrs. ago.......... :)

It will of course be a world and industry first in photo taking thanks to Apple,they will call it the ishot and ifans will be heard everywhere saying "ishot myself"!

And still apple lags and is behind everyone else

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?
22. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4185; Member since: 15 Apr 2011)
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. :(

7. EXkurogane (Posts: 863; Member since: 07 Mar 2013)
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.

giggity, heh heh alright!
29. Nathan_ingx (Posts: 3013; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)
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!!

Here's what's gonna happen, Apple will have this feature patented and say they invented it, then sue every cellphone maker out there that have been using this feature already. I mean come on!
21. MEeee (Posts: 269; Member since: 19 Oct 2011)

31. lyndon420 (Posts: 1769; Member since: 11 Jul 2012)
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.
32. rcrider4 (Posts: 118; Member since: 14 Nov 2011)
"similar to the way that the new Panorama feature is limited to the Apple iPhone 5"
The 4S has panorama also. Check your facts.

I guess they meant taking a picture while shooting a video.

All that you people do is hate on iPhone and find every little software error you can possibly find and then you anxiously wait for the next one.
I dont get you types
