Recently we have had news of the ‘iPhone3,1’ being spotted in logs hinting towards an upcoming iPhone release but Eldar Murtazin, editor in chief of Mobile Review has recently tweeted:
“Foxconn received order for next generation iphone”
Fozconn work for Apple on iPods, Macs and iPhones and so if Apple keep to their mid-year cycle, then we should be seeing a new iPhone model next year which will be a major jump. Nothing else is really known yet but over the next few months we should find out more about the mysterious device.
The developer of the public transportation guide for San Francisco, iBART. Has spotted an iPhone3,1 user in their log files. This is similar to when the 3GS was spotted before it was announced by the device string in log files.
“iPhone3,1” was first spotted in Pandav’s usage logs in November. The identifier “iPhone3,1” does not match any shipping iPhones. The last iPhone released was the iPhone 3GS which carries the identification string “iPhone2,1”.
If the reports are correct the next iPhone should be around in about 8 months, if the cycle is the same as before.
