iPhone/iPad os to feature videochat support

Further evidence has emerged that Apple’s iPad and iPhone may support video chat in future versions.

Icons in the iPhone 3.2 Software Development Kit are labeled “Accept Video” and “Decline or End Video”, reports 9to5Mac.

Meanwhile, code in the iPad’s telephony apps also includes mentions of video chat. 9to5Mac concedes that Apple may have re-used code from its Mac software in the 3.2 SDK, but adds there would be no reason to create video chat icons for the iPad unless this was a feature.

The rumor supports previous reports that future iPhones/iPads will have a front-facing camera, and the discovery of code for “toggling a video call between full screen and a smaller screen area” in the SDK.
