Today we found out Sam Mendes, director of American Beauty, is getting ready to shoot commercials for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 4G/HD featuring iPhone OS 4’s video calling features and front facing camera. We had already confirmed from iPhone OS 4 field test firmware that the next generation device would include video chatting functionality. The first anyone had heard about the commercials came from an actor’s tweet talking about auditioning a role in the commercial found by Engadget.
A “tipster” for Engadget was the source of the news regarding the video chat, who also claimed the new iPhone was being referred to at Apple as the Mammoth/ N90. It wouldn’t be surprising if Apple revealed a new iPhone commercial along with the official announcement for the device at the upcoming Steve Jobs keynote address at WWDC on June 7th.
