iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad have long missed out on 1080P HD video playback through their respective native video viewing applications. In iOS 5, Apple is looking to change all that as 1080P video now syncs to the iPad 2  and is playable in the full 1080P format. Prior to iOS 5, iTunes would not even sync video of the 1080P quality. According to first hand accounts, playback is very smooth and looks great. End users will be able to get their hands on this new feature in fall, when Apple officially delivers iOS 5 to customers.

Thanks, Jamie!
