It was only a couple of months ago that Apple CEO Tim Cook stated they would be doubling down on security to prevent any trade secrets being revealed ahead of launch. This didn’t stop from the iPhone 5 leaking well ahead of its official reveal, and it may be so for its successor, the iPhone 6.
iPhone 6 & iOS 7 show up in developer logs
It goes almost every year without fail that we see hints of a new iPhone or iPad show up on developer logs with new iOS builds. And this year is no different. According to developer logs shown to Matt Brian of TheNextWeb, the iPhone 6 and iOS 7 is already in testing. TNW states:
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.
We saw the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 show up in developer logs last year just before the fall. With iOS 7 and the iPhone 6 showing up so early in the year, it may hint that the iPhone 6 release date could be brought up to the summer again.
WWDC 2013 anyone?
