Future iPhones may sport 'citizen journalist' features

Soon, an iPhones may be all anyone needs to engage in citizen journalism, if a patent application filed by Apple Inc. materializes.

Enthusiast site Patently Apple cited a patent application referring to two features as "report" and "interview" modes.

"The new features creatively utilize multiplex video streaming techniques whereby dual cameras on the iPhone could automatically switch back and forth between interviewer and interviewee seamlessly for a live report. While Apple may be working on future iPhone features catering to iReporters, I think that their initial features will definitely capture the imaginations of iReporters everywhere," the site said.
