Technology blogs reported that some of the developers found iOS 5 includes the ability to both decode and encode 1080p video on the fly through third-party apps. And moreover, when Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the brand new iOS 5 at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), he played high resolution 1080p video content on iPad 2.
The rumours suggest that the upcoming iPhone 5 and the iPad 3 will have better camera, which is capable of recording HD videos. We can expect an 8 MP camera with HD video recording! With the launch of iOS 5 in Dec, users can update their Apple devices to the new version and can easily run HD videos on high-enough resolution screen with Retina Display technology.
It's expected that iOS 5 may lead to the arrival of full 1080p HD video on Apple TV2 and in the iTunes store alongside the currently listed 720p video. That means, Apple users can be able to download and upload 1080p video to and from their iOS 5 running device.
