iOS6 to Support Media Upload

iOS6 to Support Media Upload

Apple’s update of their operating system, iOS6, will allow upload of files through their native web browser Mobile Safari.

This will mean when users of the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch update their operating system, they will be able to upload images and video files to their posts on their WordPress site from their library of photos using Mobile Safari using a standard HTML form input.

The current version of Mobile Safari does not allow for image or video upload through html forms; this however can be done using the WordPress for iPhone app.

With this update, users will be able to login to the WordPress admin and publish posts with images and videos as a replacement for the WordPress for iPhone app as the app lacks support for third-party plugins and non-standard tools.

A new version of the WordPress software will be released in the next few months to accommodate this update, and blogs hosted on the WordPress.com site will expect to have this update supported as well.

Apple’s iOS6 will be released this autumn, which means iPhone bloggers won’t have to wait long until they can use this feature.
