The buzz about the next-gen iPhone hardware seems to be reaching all-time highs, and that's expected with WWDC just a month away. Since Apple released the iPhone 3.0 beta software to developers, people have unveiled hidden video capture features in the software, despite no official announcement from Apple. Now there are rumors going around the Internet that speculate that the 3.0 software will include video editing software as well. Possibly, a pocket version of iMovie.
If the barrage of videos hitting YouTube everyday is any indication, it seems everyone would like to share video online. At the moment, there isn't a simple, mobile way, of doing this yet. As of now, one would have to have a separate device to shoot video with. Then, to add effects and trim down the video, the user would import raw footage into iMovie or some other video editing software. Finally, the last step is publishing the video online to whatever site you choose. This can be tedious process, which is possibly one factor in preventing some users from publishing their videos online.
But what if one could do all of this, from the iPhone?
If Apple does include a video recording feature in the next iPhone OS, why would they simply stop there? Having a mobile iMovie app in the iPhone would break down the hurdles of instant video-uploading gratification. Users would shoot, edit and upload their video in a matter of minutes. All without being tethered to a computer.
With Apple's habit of revolutionizing industries and how users interact with their devices, if anyone could bring a video editing to a mobile device, and make it work, it would be them.
