Apple is on the cusp of unveiling a third-generation iPhone which, it has been claimed, will sport a strong focus on video features.

A source said to be familiar with Apple’s plans for the next iPhone has told a Business Week reporter that the device will be as easy to shoot video with as it is on the Flip pocket camcorder.

Apparently, the updated iPhone – described as a one-stop studio for recording, editing, viewing and sharing videos – will be unveiled at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) early in June.

WWDC has over the last few years become become a launch pad for all things iPhone.

The source added that the next iPhone will feature a version of Apple's desktop application iMovie. It will let you quickly save video sections – presumably as you’re shooting — and edit them for uploading to YouTube and the like.

The video system should also tap into iPhone 3.0's MMS ability to allow footage to be sent as a message. ®
