We’ve already heard a handful of whispers concerning the iPhone 5’s successor, including the suggestion that it’ll rock a handful of colours (iPod-style), while more recently we got a peek at the iPhone 5S shell. Hmm.
Freshly squeezed rumour juice indicates that something called the iPhone 6 has appeared in developer logs – powered by iOS 7.
We’re crediting The Next Web here, which claims to have been contacted by unnamed developers.
The logs in question show an iOS 7-fuelled device called the ‘iPhone6,1’ – the iPhone 5 of course having the identifiers ‘iPhone5,1’ and ‘iPhone5,2’, depending on the model and 4G bands.
The Next Web acknowledges that such logs can be faked, though a “unique IP footprint” supposedly leads back to Apple, which appears to be testing existing App Store apps with the iPhone 6 and iOS 7.
Tradition suggests that iOS 7 will be unleashed at WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) in June, and while the iPhone has recently settled into a September/October release pattern, the iPhone 6 (or iPhone 5S?) is tipped to launch in summer.
