The latest Beta edition of iOS 7, Apple's forthcoming smartphone and tablet operating system, reveals the ability to shoot at super-high frame rates and then slow down the final recording.
The discovery, made by 9to5Mac, suggests that one of the standout features on the next iPhone will be the ability to capture video at up to 120 frames per second.
The feature, referred to as "Mogul" would give device users the ability to capture incredibly detailed, jerk-free slow motion video -- a standard feature on popular action cams -- beloved of extreme sports enthusiast -- and, surprise, surprise, on Samsung's latest flagship phone the Galaxy SIV.
However, just because a setting or feature has been discovered in a beta version, there is no guarantee that the same feature will make the final cut and complete its journey onto the next generation of Apple products.
For example, Apple toyed with the idea of a panorama photography function in the beta edition of iOS5 back in 2011 but only decided to include the feature in iOS6, which was released a year later.
