The World Wide Developers Conference took place yesterday and Apple introduced, among other things, Mac OS X Lion, iCloud, & iOS 5. Hit the jump to see a list of the new photography related improvements, which are in my opinion, very significant.

Apple has filed a patent for iPhones that would be capable of reading Infrared signals. At events such as a live concert, or in a movie theater, infrared signals could be sent out telling the device that it is not allowed to record in that location. If this is the intent of the patent, I think it’s gone to far. While I agree people should not have their copyrights infringed upon, this seems too over controlling in my opinion. What do you think?
Rumour is that the next iPod Nano will have a 1.3 megapixel camera. While this may be an upgrade to existing models, the question is, who really needs a camera on their iPod Nano? Second ly, who still uses an iPod Nano?
Yesterday, Apple Announced the iPad 2 would be available for sale on March 11th (United States) starting at $499. While the upgrades from the first generation might not be groundbreaking, the duel cameras that allow for face to face chat are a great addition. Photo Booth will also be included as a built in app. More details after the break.
Last week, Apple opened up the Mac App Store, with more than 1000 apps available to download to your Mac computer. This represents a more streamlined way of getting software for your computer, since it is only a click away. More details after the break including how you can get Aperture 3 for less than half price!
What makes this photo shoot unique? It was shot using 9 iPads as the lighting source. While it may not be the most practical way of lighting a model, it’s definitely a creative one. Based on the amount of attention Jesse Rosten has gotten since posting the video, it was definitely a great idea. Watch the video after the break.
