A developer log has shown that Apple is currently testing the iPhone 6, the hotly anticipated new iPhone. The log also shows the handset running iOS 7.
A developer revealed the log to The Next Web. It shows the code ‘iPhone 6,1’. This is believed to be the next iPhone being tested. The iPhone 5 has been shown in ‘iPhone 5,1’ or ‘iPhone 5,2’ codes.
Although this does hint that Apple is working on its next iPhone, it doesn’t tell us whether this is a complete overhaul of the iPhone 5 or a minor update. When Apple was about to launch the successor of the iPhone 4, we expected to see a redesigned iPhone 5. Instead, the Cupertino firm launched the iPhone 4S, which is a minor upgrade of its predecessor. This suggests that the iPhone 6,1 code may be referring to the iPhone 5S.
iOS 7 is also mentioned in the log. However, not enough details were mentioned. We’re likely to know more about Apple’s next generation software at WWDC 2013, which will be taking place in June. In this yearly event, Apple typically unveils its new software.
Identifier codes can be faked. So might think that this is the case here. However, The Next Web points out that the IP address used in the log is in fact the IP address used by Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California. This hints that the code is likely to be real.
