iPhone/ iPad video calling revealed in 3.2 SDK?

Share

ipad video chat icons.jpgWe were all a bit miffed when the iPad turned up without any webcam features, just as we wait with baited breath to see if the next gen iPhone will have a front-facing camera. A little digging into the 3.2 SDK however reveals that video conferencing may yet still be on the cards, or that at least it was considered at some point.

9to5 Mac spotted that the iPhone OS 3.2 SDK has icons named “AcceptVideo” and “DeclineOrEndVideo”.

But there’s more; iChat pops up at least once in the iPad coding, whilst the iPad’s telephony apps reveal some VideoChat strings. While it is possible that these are merely leftovers from Mac telephony coding, 9to5 Mac pointed out that it was unlikely Apple would have designed iPad-specific icons if there wasn’t some more comprehensive functionality planned further down the line.

More news if anything more concrete comes of this find.
