The first beta of iOS 5 revealed Apple was working on its own panoramic camera feature for the iPhone, and although we’re still yet to see it go live within the third beta, Apple is continuing to develop it. But will it be ready for iOS 5’s public release?

While this may not be particularly exciting news to many of you, photography nuts looking forward to a panoramic camera feature built into the iOS platform will be pleased to hear Apple hasn’t abandoned its development.

In the latest beta has added additional strings that weren’t there in previous iOS 5 releases:

We’ll have to wait and see whether the feature makes it into a future beta release, however, Apple has plenty of time to get it ready for the public release of iOS 5 this fall.
