Apple Testing iPhone 6 with iOS 7 in the Wild

Rumours have quickly surfaced that Apple is testing an iPhone 6, running iOS 7, in the wild.

The Next Web is claiming to have sources indicating Apple is indeed working with a new phone and OS from deep inside the Cupertino campus.

One developer showed us that Apple has been testing hardware relating to a new ‘iPhone6,1? identifier, powered by a device running iOS 7, which is expected to be released by Apple in the middle part of this year.

Apple’s current flagship, the iPhone 5, bears the identifiers ‘iPhone5,1? and ‘iPhone 5,2? depending on the LTE model of the handset and the 4G bands on which it operates.

Developers in contact with TNW have produced logs showing access from a 6,1 device running iOS 7, and the IP address’ trace straight back to Apple. Apple is known to test popular apps during product development to check for hardware and software issues and these logs typically surface not long before the announcement of a new phone.

It’s also too early to say what the phone look will look like, but if it’s anything like the above photograph supplied by Cult of Mac, then the larger screen will make it much more competitive with the Samsung Galaxy S3. With the recent changes that have taken place in the iOS division, we will have to wait to see what effect that will have on the actual OS itself. Stay tuned…
