It seems that the Apple iPhone 4 has another unexpected hiccup in its functionality. As you may already know, the iPhone 4 is capable of recording glorious 720p HD video. Unfortunately, it can't upload them. Intomobile is reporting on their attempts during a video upload test, only to discover that the iPhone 4 will not upload 720p video.

ios-200

Apple is pushing the iPhone OS 4 update (iOS) to all iPhone models. The iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 3G will all run iOS 4.

Unfortunately not all features will be available to the iPhone 3G; multitasking has been held back due to a slight lack in the hardware department. Expect hacks to come out the day after. All phones will of course get the most important feature of all: iAds.

The group replied last week saying it exposed the security flaw to inform and protect consumers, and refused to make public their discoveries until AT&T repaired the issue.

They also noted that all findings have been destroyed by both the hackers and Gawker Media’s Valleywag website who received the data from them.
