Latest iPhone SDK Update Features Video Playlists, Portrait Playback

A confidential source recently shared a brief clip that demonstrates some exciting updates to the iPhone 2.0 software.

While the video’s quality was slightly compromised by less-than-ideal lighting, the content remains clear.

The video reveals that users will have the flexibility to view videos in both portrait and landscape modes, thanks to the iPhone’s accelerometer.

This feature builds on the existing capability to play QuickTime videos in Safari on vertical display, introduced with firmware version 1.1.1.

Additionally, it seems that the future will bring the convenience of video playlists to iPhone users.

Update: The video has been replaced with a new version with improved visibility, courtesy of our anonymous contributor.
