It’s the start of the year and we might just have one of the biggest news regarding future Apple releases. iOS 7 and an iPhone model numbered “iPhone 6,1” have been spotted in developer logs, which might be an indication towards a huge release.
A new iPhone identifier has been seen by the developers, which grabbed there attention. When seen from a developers account, it was found that the origin of the app request is from an IP address on Apple’s Cupertino campus, making it quite clear that through this new identifier, the fruit company is testing some of the more popular apps from the App Store, from a device running iOS 7. Although, there are chances for the OS and device data to be faked, but the particular IP footprint pointing back to Apple’s Cupertino campus removes the doubt that this might be a fake one.
If we talk about Apple’s recent release iPhone 5 then we get to know that it had been identified as ‘iPhone5,1′ and ‘iPhone 5,2′, which depends on the LTE model of the device and the 4G bands on which it operates.
This new ‘iPhone6,1′ identifier shows that the company shall soon be releasing a device (most probably iPhone 6) that will bear iOS 7. Also that this new release will be hitting the stores in first half of 2013. This is because the company has started working on it in the end of 2012, which means that soon the team will finalize the specs of the iPhone 6 the OS, and will begin properly working on it.
iPhone 5 was released only a couple of months ago and now Apple is already testing iPhone 6, what are your thoughts on it? Fake or the real thing?
