We know iOS 7 is coming, we can also bet that some kind of new or updated iPhone will come this year as well. Now we have the first indications of these being in the works from server logs on a few sites.
Predictions for iOS 7 and a new/updated iPhone are pretty much blinding flashes of the obvious, but it’s always cool to see when real indications of progress start leaking out into the wild:
One developer showed us that Apple has been testing hardware relating to a new ‘iPhone6,1′ identifier, powered by a device running iOS 7, which is expected to be released by Apple in the middle part of this year.
Apple’s current flagship, the iPhone 5, bears the identifiers ‘iPhone5,1′ and ‘iPhone 5,2′ depending on the LTE model of the handset and the 4G bands on which it operates.
From the developer logs that we have seen, the app requests originate from an IP address on Apple’s Cupertino campus, suggesting that members of Apple’s software development and app teams are compatibility testing some of the more popular or well-known applications already on the App Store.
Since server logs don’t give any indication of what iOS 7 or and “iPhone 6,1″ might sport features wise, what are your ideas/picks/wishes?
