Thanks to iOS 7, you can now zoom in on your subject while recording a video

Another new but unheralded feature allows you to take a still picture while in the midst of capturing a video. To do that, all you need to do is tap the white button on the bottom of the screen while recording a video. The still pictures go right to your picture roll and you can take as many pictures as possible and still tap-to-focus or zoom in at the same time.
Take a look at the video below to check out the zooming capabilities on iOS 7. And we also have a still picture for you to look at, which was snapped while a video was being recorded.

Apple omitted it because it probably wasn't a very important feature. As for taking pictures while video capturing, you can already do that without upgrading to iOS 7. I understand that you guys at PA like these flame wars, but if you're going to make an article as pointless an useless as this, at least be accurate.

I'll use this feature a lot, glad to see it finally arrive. Ios7 looks to be a bottom 9 walk off homer.
