One developer showed the log to The Next Web. The log shows the code ‘iPhone 6,1’, which it believes is the iPhone 6 being tested. The iPhone 5 bears the code ‘iPhone 5,1’ or ‘iPhone 5,2’.
Although this does show that Apple is currently working on its next generation iPhone, it doesn’t tell us whether this is a complete overhaul of the current model or just a minor update. In the past, we were expecting Apple to launch the iPhone 5, but instead got the iPhone 4S that looks exactly like the iPhone 4. It’s possible that iPhone 6,1 code is referring to the iPhone 5S.
Also shown on the log is iOS 7. The latest version is iOS 6. Since Apple is typically tight-lipped about its new software and hardware, take this with a pinch of salt. It’s likely Apple will reveal more about iOS 7 at this year’s WWDC, which will be kicking off in June. This is the event wherein Apple typically launches its next generation software.
Identifier codes have been faked in the past, which could be the case here. The Next Web, however, points out that the IP address seen on the log is the IP address of Apple’s headquarters. This suggests that the code could very well be genuine.
Can’t wait to hear more on the iPhone 6 running iOS 7? We’ll keep you posted once we know more.
