iPhone 4S Leaked in Newest iTunes Beta

iPhone 4S shows up in iTunes beta

Direct references to an iPhone 4S in name with corresponding images have been revealed in the newest iTunes beta, all but guaranteeing the next iPhones name. This also strongly suggests that a redesigned iPhone 5 will not launch at the October 4th Apple event.

The discovery was made today by 9to5Mac, who is “confident that the iPhone 4S will pack the CDMA iPhone design”. Shown in the screenshot are two separate references to “iPhone 4S”, each attached to an iPhone 4 CDMA model image, in black and white colors respectively.

This is yet another piece of evidence that mounts against a new looking iPhone being released anytime soon, despite a continuous supply of conflicting reports and imaginative rumors. Last week, an alleged iPhone 4S packaging label was discovered, and a week prior an ‘iPhone 4S’ labeled case was also found. With the exception of third party “iPhone 5″ cases from China, there has been no evidence that a redesigned phone exists. Furthermore, the well-connected John Gruber of DaringFireball published a lengthy piece titled “Teardrop Skepticism” that dismantles many of the rumors of a so-called ‘teardrop’ iPhone 5 design.

The iPhone 4S is expected to have an A5 CPU, 1GB of RAM, 8MP camera, include iOS 5, and has a likely release date of October 14th.

    Won’t be getting this one, sorry Apple but I’m not interested in buying 18 month old hardware that is slightly updated with some 8 month old iPad 2 insides in your planned obsolescence scheme. The competition is too hot, you’re the only one slacking while everyone else is innovating. iOS 5 should be iOS 4.5, it’s a minor update at best. Ice Cream Sandwich is a giant overhaul to the UX, what does iOS 5 have?

    Color me disappointed all around. Time to buy an Android. Nexus Prime will be announced October 11th and it will steal the thunder, rightfully so, with it’s innovative OS, better hardware, 4.5″ screen, 4G speeds, and awesome looks.

      If you want your Droid go buy one. The iPhone 4 is the most successful phone in history, and Apple is about to make it better than ever. You just want to complain about something, get over it.

      Have you used ARC in iOS 5.0? That alone makes it more than a 4.5.

    What are the benefits going to be to the end user really?
    Slightly better pictures and not much else…

    What’s the point?

      I have to agree here, no point to upgrade. I wanted a bigger screen because my eyes hurt after reading text on the tiny 3″ display.

    Do not want.

  6. [...] big remaining question is if the next phone will be called iPhone 4S or iPhone 5, with a number of signs pointing to iPhone 4S. Thankfully we’ll find out [...]
