Apple's WWDC 2014 event was packed to the brim with all sorts of new and exciting developments, so much so that features that would have ordinarily been discussed for a few minutes weren't even mentioned this time around. One such example is a nifty addition Apple has added to its Camera app with iOS 8 - a time-lapse photography feature.

Apple's website describes the feature thusly:

Capture the experience of the sun setting, a city street bustling, or a flower blooming with the new Time-lapse mode in Camera. iOS 8 does all the work, snapping photos at dynamically selected intervals. The result is a video showing an accelerated sequence of the photos over time. Just set up your device to shoot what you want. Swipe to select Time-lapse mode, tap the Record button, and let Camera record as long as you choose.

It's a pretty incredible feature, and some folks have already downloaded the iOS 8 beta and posted video footage of the time lapse feature in action. Suffice it to say, this is going to be a fan favorite once iOS 8 becomes available to the masses.

Below are two videos showcasing the feature in action.

And one more for good measure.
