Οι αποκαλύψεις από το iPhone OS 3.2 του iPad συνεχίζονται…

Το Engadget αναφέρει ότι μέσα στο νέο firmware έχουν βρεθεί αναφορές οι οποίες αποδεικνύουν πως η Apple δουλεύει πάνω σε δυνατότητες video conferencing:

We’re told that there are hooks to accept and decline a video conference, flip a video feed (which suggests a front-facing camera) and — most importantly — run the video call in either full screen mode or in just a portion of the screen. That means you’ll be able to chat and do other things at the same time, which could mean there’s at least some type of multitasking going on here.
