iPhone OS 3.0 Rumored to Feature Video Editing Tools

Advancements in mobile technology continue to surprise us, and the latest scoop from the iPhone 3.0 firmware analysis by Ben from benm.at (original site in German, translation here) is no exception.

He has unearthed several graphical assets that hint at new video editing capabilities such as trimming and clipping directly on the iPhone.

Previously, Engadget Mobile had also highlighted an “Upload my Video” feature found within the MobileMe section of the upcoming iPhone’s OS.

While third-party jailbreak applications like ustream and Qik have been utilizing the iPhone’s camera for video, Apple has yet to officially introduce video editing tools in its software updates.

The potential for on-device video editing, complete with a pinch/stretch interface for timeline management, is an exciting prospect.
