'FaceDetectionVideo4S' Enables Face Detection When Shooting Video on the iPhone 4S
The iPhone 4S has face detection only for snapping photographs. The iPhone 5 has face detection for snapping photographs and for shooting video. Both iPhones are fast and capable phones, so isnít something a little unfair there, Apple?
If you have an iPhone 4S, and you want to enable the face detection feature for when shooting video, and not only for when snapping photographs, then you will want to download and try out a new free jailbreak tweak called FaceDetectionVideo4S
by iOS developer PoomSmart.
FaceDetectionVideo4S is one of many jailbreak tweaks that PoomSmart has released for unlocking new features on certain iOS devices when Apple disables them by default. If you recall, the same developer also released LLBiPT5
, which unlocked low light boost mode (iPhone 5-only) on the iPod touch 5G, and Still Capture Enabler
, which enabled taking still images while in the middle of shooting video (iPhone 5-only) on the iPod touch 5G.
After installing FaceDetectionVideo4S, you will be able to start using the feature immediately from the stock Camera application. The tweak has no options to configure. FaceDetectionVideo4S is made only for the iPhone 4S, as it will not do anything on any other iOS device. You can grab the tweak from the BigBoss repository in Cydia right now!
