A future generation of the device may have 3D picture and video capabilities according to chatter around the Internet.

Rumors have been circulating, so everything we say here is mere hope and speculation, but it seems that Apple is exploring the idea of installing a 3D camera in a future generation of iPhones. The tech giant has taken out a patent to start development–or at least experimentation–on a product that involves exploring “Systems and Methods for an Imaging System Using Multiple Image Sensors,” so we'll se what comes out of the Apple lab in the coming year.

Fingers crossed.
