FaceTime video calling added to iPhone 4… and it’s WiFi-only

Posted on June 7, 2010


That front-facing camera on the new iPhone 4 and a flood of leaks were a dead giveaway — the new FaceTime app brings video calling to the iPhone. Unfortunately, it’s WiFi-only at the moment, as Steve says Apple needs to work with carriers to support it on 3G. The FaceTime app is pretty cool — you can flip the image between the front and rear cameras and between portrait and landscape orientation, and the video call system is built on open standards like SIP, H.264, and AAC so it’ll work with other video calling apps as well.
