Last month, we reported that Apple was working on an iPhone 5s. Well it looks like the rumor mill will need to be revisited because it looks like Apple is actually testing an iPhone 6 and iOS 7. iOS is the popular Apple Mobile operating system which saw a version 6 release last fall. The question with Apple now is when will we see a new release and what will it feature. Today The Next Web claims to have seen the very first sketchy evidence of Apple’s next handset and mobile operating system. According to the publication, one iOS developer discovered that a device named “iPhone 6,1” running iOS 7 was making requests from an IP address within Apple’s Cupertino campus itself. The iPhone 6 is expected to be released by the middle of next year. TNW says that “although OS and device data can be faked, the unique IP footprint leading back to Apple’s Cupertino campus leads us to believe that this is not one of those attempts.”
Now, it could be that the company that promised to “double down on secrecy” is merely toying with us by pretending to have a new iPhone, or it could be that someone spoofed an Apple IP address and the iPhone and iOS identifiers for fun. As TNW notes, references to the new iOS 6 software were seen in May a month before its official launch, giving this latest round of leaks a precedent. Either way, it looks like the next few months will give us an update on whats coming from Cupertino.
