If there were any lingering doubts that Apple would soon bring video recording to the iPhone in one way or another, let them be cast away.

By tweaking a configuration file tucked away in the depths of the iPhone 3.0 SDK, a MacRumors user was able to coax the Camera app to load a slightly different interface. See that slider in the bottom right? I’m pretty sure it’s safe to assume that’s not “Box next to a triangle” mode.

Everyone’s expecting just about positive that Apple will release a new piece of mobile hardware sometime around June/July of this year for the sake of continued tradition, and most of the reasonably believable rumors point at a 3.2 megapixel camera with video support. Apple’s not exactly making a habit of handing out the big features to the old hardware – so you probably shouldn’t count on shootin’ video on your 1st or 2nd gen iPhone (well, without jailbreaking).

The same configuration file also had a few other goodies tucked inside; mentions of an “auto-focus camera”, “magnetometer” (Digital Compass – think Compass Mode on the G1), and “Voice Control”. We can’t wait.
