WWDC 2010: More iPhone 4 features – gyroscope and updated camera

Time for Jenga! The new iPhone also sports a gyroscope, working with the existing accelerometer and compass to help the iPhone do even more, from more accurate compass readings and positioning to better gaming.

Apple has updated the camera to a 5MP sensor, but increased the size of the sensor so the pixels are the same size as with the 3MP camera in the 3GS. Additionally, to increase low light capability, the sensor is backlit and adds an LED flash. Also on tap for the camera is 5x digital zoom.

This new camera will shoot 720p video at 30fps, and can keep the LED light on for video.
