According to The Next Web, developer logs have started to appear referencing the ‘iPhone 6.1’, a device that was seemingly being run by iOS 7. The logs also note the iPhone 5 with monikers ‘iPhone 5.1’ and ‘iPhone 5.2’, with the difference between the two depending on the LTE model and 4G band frequency.
While these codes can sometimes by manipulated, the source adds to the authenticity of the report by saying that the IP address of the new iPhone came from inside Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino.
Apple only released the iPhone 5 in September and has traditionally kept to a yearly cycle with the smartphone, only for recent reports to suggest that the firm may move to replace products every six months.
On the software front too, Apple has typically kept the wraps on its latest Mac and iOS mobile operating systems until its developer conference in June.
