Captain Obvious: Apple testing iPhone 6 and iOS 7

If you don't think Apple is already testing early versions of the next iPhone and the next version of iOS, then you really don't know a lot about the mobile phone industry. This week, a new report claims that some app developers are seeing identifiers in their usage stats that show Apple is using a device with the "iPhone6,1" label and running under iOS 7.

The Next Web posted up this news, via unnamed sources, and also says the IP addresses of these identifies seem to come from Apple’s Cupertino, California headquarters. In retrospect, it's about the least shocking thing in the world to learn that Apple is testing the next iteration of their highly successful smartphone and mobile OS in their offices.

For us, it's far more important to learn information about what features will be put into iOS 7 and the next iPhone and so far there's nothing on that front. It's likely that Apple will reveal some of their official details of iOS 7 at their next Worldwide Developer Conference. That will likely be held in June in San Francisco. Last year's WWDC was the event that Apple used for the reveal for iOS 6. As far as the next iPhone, we won't likely hear anything official on that front from Apple until sometime in the fall of 2013.
