What can we expect from the next iPhone? Various rumors and leaks have pointed to camera improvements, increased RAM, support for Force Touch and more. Now code in iOS 9 is starting to spill additional information on what we might be able to expect, particularly in the camera department.
Hazma Sood, an iOS developer who has discovered future features hiding in plain site before, recently noticed a few lines of code that suggest Apple is about to upgrade the front facing camera of its next iPhones.
The code appears to suggest that Apple will outfit the next iPhone with a front-facing flash — a feature we’ve seen on several selfie-focused phones recently, like the HTC Desire EYE — and support for 240fps recording, panoramas and capturing 1080p video.

Will it actually happen? Who knows, but there’s evidence it will in Apple’s code. For those keeping track, Sood also pointed out the Apple Watch Activity app inside of iOS 8.2 before it was widely available.
