Apple adds iPhone sensor, dock, YouTube details to site

In a series of updates to the Apple.com website, Apple has added additional details about several iPhone features, including the device’s YouTube browser, sensors, and Dock. A QuickTour video clip of the YouTube browser shows a decidedly different interface on iPhone from the one released this morning for Apple TV, with the ability to bookmark and e-mail YouTube clips directly from the Now Playing screen. A full Bookmarks screen full of previously saved YouTube clips can be seen, and each video can be selected to view an expanded text description, related videos, and a simple “Share” button. Apple has also added a demonstration of the device’s Accelerometer sensor, which tracks the phone’s rotation from horizontal to vertical display modes, to a previous video of the device’s Proximity sensor, which turns the phone’s touch controls off when it approaches your face.

New shots of the iPhone Dock, previously announced in January, have also materialized in the iPhone Gallery, depicting the unusually shaped charging station’s side and 3/4 front profiles. Selected images from the new iPhone pages can be seen below.
