Anyone with iOS 7 able to see if you can shoot video at 60 FPS with the current iPhone 5

Thanks

It's definitely left out of this beta and will appear in a future beta (compatible with iPhone 5).

Apple doesn't announce features for future appear before the hardware is unveiled (ex. iOS 4 preview didn't mention HDR/Facetime until the iPhone 4 was unveiled itself).

HDR wasnt revealed until iOS 4.1, although you are correct about FaceTime.

Are you saying the hardware in the iPhone 5 is capable of 60 fps?
That I am - I would assume 720P video at 60FPS. Then the iPhone 5S would do 1080P video at 60FPS.

With Apple's extreme secrecy & "mums the word" stance on future hardware, they wouldn't announce an exclusive feature of the 5S three months before its unveiled.

I think this fall keynote could be VERY interesting.

I was excited for WWDC, but now...I can already feel the anticipation building to an extremely high level for fall event.

Change is upon us!

The 5 has very similar camera hardware to the 4S. The latter, under iOS5, was capable of half-vertical-resolution recording at 720p60 (bu not under 1080p). This feature was taken away in iOS6 - that is, no 4S can record at anything over 30 fps under iOS6 any more. (See THIS for more info on the halved vertical resolution; HERE is an article on iOS6's removal of this feature.)

I assume the iPhone 5 (along with the 4S) will only support 720p60 (at halved vertical resolution) just like under iOS5, not 1080p. The hardware is just too slow for 1080p60 (or even real, non-half-resolution 720p60). One can still hope there'll be a miracle and Apple took away 720p60 in all iOS6 versions because the iOS5 implementation was substandard and the hardware could have been capable of far more - but, as a programmer knowing the sensor reading isn't particularly fast (as opposed to, say, Nokia's sensors), I don't think this is the case. That is, I don't expect much from current models (4s / 5) and certainly not true, full-res 1080p60.

The 60FPS thing is just an API which developers can use in their apps. Seems Apple hasn't added the option to toggle 60FPS recording in their default Camera.app.

60 FPS recording is an old feature which I've seen before now in apps. I remember Apple removed the feature at some point (no idea why, perhaps these apps were using a hacky method to achieve 60 FPS), but have now re-added it in iOS 7.

- In all iOS6 versions.

- No hacking were needed. (Albeit it could also be utilized by just directly editing /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/ MediaToolbox.framework/N94/ AVCaptureSession.plist and simply using the stock Camera app; that is, without writing a row of a third-party app.)
