The iOS 7 SDK gives developers the ability to have "60-fps video capture," which gave me the immediate indication that the camera in the next iPhone should be capable of recording 1080p60 video.

Anyone else agree?

While this feature might not be useful to most people, I think that they'll quickly see the difference it makes for video that they'll want to start using it more, and maybe it'll prompt YouTube to start supporting 60FPS content as well.

If you aren't sure of the difference, here's a 30FPS vs. 60FPS video that I created a while back (60FPS video link is in the video's description):

Some app devs figured out how to capture in 60fps back in iOS 5.x with apps like SloPro and Timefreeze. I was constantly using those apps because it allow smooth slow motion playback. When Apple released iOS 6.x, it broke the 60fps capture ability for those apps. Now, Apple is making it official.

Here's a video sample I made using the Timefreeze app that captured in 60fps.

That's not true 60FPS, but rather some weird frame interpolation going on.
Here's a video file that I captured in 60fps using the SloPro app on my old iPhone 4S. This was also on iOS 5.x.

Now THAT'S 60FPS. Looks like the $3.99 upgrade is what adds 60FPS exporting, which is a little disappointing, since it might not work in beta 1, unless someone has tried it already.

I've attempted but 60fps is still not available in the SloPro app yet. Hopefully the devs can enable soon now that the SDK for iOS 7 is available.

SloPro got an update a few weeks ago that added 60FPS recording for iPhone 5c/5/iPad mini/iPod touch 5G, 30FPS for everything else, and even 120FPS for the 5s. For my iPhone 5, 60FPS videos are fantastic, although it only records at 1280x720p60, rather than 1920x1080p60, which is slightly disappointing.

1080p60 might be available on the 5s.

I'm not sure why 60fps isn't available on the 4s because it was available on the 4s using iOS 5.x.
