iOS 4.3 Beta 2 confirms iPad 2 cameras with new photo apps

updated 05:55 am EST, Thu January 20, 2011

PhotoBooth for iPad 2 and iPhone 4 also added

The latest developer-only release of Apple's iOS 4.3 Beta 2 has added to the mounting evidence that Apple's next iteration of the iPad will feature front and rear facing cameras. A developer has uncovered a new file (homeScreenOverlayFaceTime~ipad.png) that clearly shows the addition of three new standard photo apps in FaceTime, Camera and PhotoBooth.

For the FaceTime and Camera apps to function as they do on the iPhone 4, they would require two cameras. It is unlikely that they Camera app would only take photos to the front and numerous iPad 2 case leaks have shown a hole for a rear facing camera.

The inclusion of the PhotoBooth app will be a first for the iOS platform and looks set to replicate the functionality of the Mac OS X app with a range of fun effects and filters that can be added quickly to user's, family and friends' self-portraits. It can be expected that PhotoBooth will also appear on the iPhone 4. [via Macrumors]
