    The 4S will get the panorama mode. But it likely will not get the picture while video recording.

    Only the 5 will be able to take pics while recording video, as shown on Apple's site.

    Yes I can confirm the 4S gets the panorama mode (it works really well), but not the snap picture in video feature.

    Thanks. What else does the 4S not get in terms of features. Compared to the 5

    So 4 to 4S was Siri exclusion and 4S to 5 is taking pictures during video recording? weird. i know 5 is a new design, LTE, taller etc, etc, but in terms of functionality and marketing this was a weird one to keep to the 5.

    Its clearly a hardware limitation of the 4S.
    The 5 has the benefit of a faster processor and more ram.

    I wouldn't be too sure of that. There are Android phones with the specs of the iPhone 4 that have that ability. It's likely just a switch that needs to be flipped or an addition to the AVcapture.plist.

    Or Apple is just excluding another feature again?

    Probably a little bit of both.

    Yeah but seems like a weird feature to exclude. Maybe 6.1 but highly unlikely

    Every feature available on the iPhone 5 except picture taking while recording video and improved video stabilization is available on the 4s. I think if Apple would intentionally leave out something it would not be that, it is probably a hardware issue or Apple felt that it did not work well enough on the 4s. The main selling point of the iPhone 5 is the bigger screen and a large hardware leap over the iPhone 4 and 3gs.
