The folks over at 9 to 5 Mac have been showing off these images of what appear to be screenshots of an iPad camera.app. These photos, coupled with the fact that they were produced from files within the iOS 4.3 SDK (software development kit), should make those holding out for an iPad with a camera breathe a sigh of relief.

The screenshots sent in were all in the iPad’s currently used 1024 x 768 resolution. So those of you that were hoping for a Retina Display in this iPad refresh, may be deeply disappointed. In all fairness though, I’d agree that could just be because 1024 x 768 is as high as the iPad goes now, so for software testing purposes it can’t be higher than the current iPad’s resolution.

What I’m curious about is why is there no ‘rotate camera’ button? I thought Apple’s popular video chatting app, FaceTime, was a shoe in for the next iPad model. I guess only time will tell. At least the predicted date for an iPad announcement isn’t too far off. Anyone looking to pick up the iPad 2? Have any iPad predictions of your own?

    Maybe there’s only a front camera, just like the mac’s.
    I actually don’t see the point of having a back camera on the iPad except for using it 1 time with AR or something..

    @msb0212 you took the words right outta my mouth. Its a tablet, no need for a back facing camera really. My macbook pro does not have one. And does not need one.

  • Well, I think even though it’s a tablet, it would be nice to be able to take pictures with it. No?

    I find it easier to take the picture with my iphone4 and place the picture into my drop box and transfer it to my Ipad that way

  • Yea I’m hoping the camera is on the front of the iPad….Skype would be fun

  • Why you give evidence?
