Now, another feature have been uncovered by jailbreak developer Chronic together with Sonny Dickson by digging into the internal settings of the iOS 5. Aside from 3G enabled FaceTime and Nuance Voice Recognition feature, the iOS 5 is also capable of High Quality 3G Youtube playback too.

Pretty much like the FaceTime feature in the past iOS 5 build, Youtube playback has been limited to stream high quality videos only when the user is in a Wi-Fi network. If the user is utilizing 3G, the picture stream quality will be automatically reduced and as well as the size. This is of course to prevent Youtube playbacks from causing havoc to the carrier's network.
