Apple Job Listings Hint at iPhone Features

Apple is looking to hire programmers for its iPhone development team, and the job listings may offer some hints at what's in store for the next iPhone model. The job openings suggest the third generation iPhone will sport a substantially faster processor along with video support.

The first listing, titled "High Performance/Low Level Programmer," says the coder will be tasked with "improving various subsystems running on iPhone OS," and requires an understanding of the ARM architecture, its NEON vector unit, Intel SSE and PowerPC Altivec. Since Apple is looking for familiarity with NEON, that suggests the third generation iPhone will use an ARMv7 processor, which can run substantially faster than the iPhone 3G's ARMv6 chip.

The "Embedded Video Processing & Analysis" job listing is soliciting for a developer that can help with embedded video processing technologies, and is familiar with "real-time media and networking applications" -- a potential tip off that Apple is adding video capture and streaming support to the next iPhone, and a feature that's been suggested in several rumors.

Of course, simply listing job openings doesn't guarantee that specific features will show up in the next iPhone model, or in any Apple products, but it does add some support to third generation iPhone rumors that have been circulating around the Internet.

Forget that stuff, what we really need is an FM tuner and a user replaceable battery. /snark
