Panorama functionality in iOS 5

After the first beta of iOS 5 was seeded to developers in June, a series of code strings suggested the company could implement a panoramic photo-taking feature in the OS, allowing users to shoot wider photos with a Panorama functionality allegedly similar to what third-party apps like 360 Panorama and Pano are already offering. As Apple kept seeding more betas and eventually released iOS 5 to the public, Panorama was nowhere to be found in iOS, suggesting Apple wasn’t ready to debut the feature yet.

One Developer did a little digging around inside the camera app and discovered that editing a particular .plist file made the missing panorama mode to appear, however, a new Cydia tweak made available now, called Firebreak. to simply enable camera’s panorama mode:

Firebreak via Cydia

Requires iOS 5 or higher Requires Gyroscope capable device, iPhone 4, or newer, or iPad 2. Enable built-in panoramas on iOS 5 Camera app. No icons added to the homescreen. The panorama button is added to the Options menu in the Camera app.
Once downloaded and installed you will have the panorama mode enabled.
