Evidence of iPhone OS 4.0 Found In Pinch Media Analytics

We recently saw evidence that the iPhone OS 4.0 is in testing, as shown by web site logs. However this week the newOSseems to be undergoing more testing, as one iPhone developer has since noted a single instance of the iPhone OS 4.0 being used in their Pinch Media Analytics.

The testing may correspond with reports of the new iPhone 4G being tested. Apple is expected to release this new hardware in the late summer months of 2010.

Apple To Announce New iPhone At The End Of June?

AppleInsider have noticed that The Moscone Center Calendar lists a “Corporate Event” from June 28th to July 2nd2010. Previous Apple events have been listed in the same name and the conference is usually used to introduce new iPhone models.

If the new iPhone is released in June/July then it would keep to the usual iPhone release cycle and would seem to fit the same release pattern of when the new iPhone model is tested. As the iPhone 3GS was tested 8 months prior to release and a reference to the iPhone3,1 has been found recently so this would fit the same pattern.

Apple Testing iPhone OS 3.1.3 and 4.0

It’s possible that Apple could be testing the iPhone OS version 3.1.3 and version 4.0, which we assume would run on the new iPhone3,1 device being currently tested. The rumours have come from server logs showing the new versions of the OS.

The BoyGeniusReport found evidence of two new user agents in their log files. The first, iPhone OS 3.1.3 would be a minor bug fix. The second, iPhone OS 4.0 would be a significant upgrade to the operating system.

The user agents could be faked, but it’s likely by now that Apple are testing these versions of the OS.

iPhone 4G Coming Next Year?

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.

iPhone 3,1 In Testing?

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.
