Field of View (FOV) of cameras in iOS devices

by Achim -

For the new "You Gotta See This!" release we want to make sure that the app generates high quality output on every iOS device out there. To accomplish this, we needed to measure the Field of view for them. We collected as many different iOS devices we could get, piled them up in our Boinx Labs and started measuring the angle with high tech equipment like a boxed version of WebObjects and Freefall, an early version of a satellite viewing screensaver, as well as a folding rule and a laser distance meter. Here are our results:
