Apple are already testing a new model of the iPhone 6, and iOS 7 software, a new report has claimed.
The Next Web claim that ‘unnamed developers’ have contacted them to inform them that application usage logs show traces of Apple’s new hardware and software. One of the apparent developers claim that the technology giants have been “testing hardware relating to iPhone6,1 identifier, and a device running iOS 7. For comparison, the iPhone 5 carried the identifier iPhone5,1.
The Next Web claims that it investigated the information they received, and were able to discover that the application requests came from an IP address at Apple’s headquarters based in Cupertino, California.
Of course, it is possible to fake device and software, but the website believe that the legitimate IP footprint they discovered is proof that Apple are indeed already planning their next range of phone and OS products. It was previously thought that Apple initially started work on iOS7 not long after the release of iOS6. If previous Apple development schedules are to be followed, it would place an announcement of the iPhone 6 and/or iOS 7 at the WWDC event in June.
