iPhone 5,1 reference in iOS 5 beta 1

iOS 5.1 beta 1 continues to spill the beans for Apple product ID’s, with the latest find being a direct reference to Apple’s next-generation iPhone, referenced as “iPhone 5,1″, and two unreleased iPad’s, referenced as “iPad3,2″ and “iPad3,3″.

iPhone5,1 would technically be the sixth generation iPhone, which may indicate iPhone 6 is the proper name for the device. Of course, nothing but speculation is known about the iPhone 5 (6?), but references appearing in current iOS 5.1 beta builds suggest there are working prototypes that are running iOS 5.1 right now in Cupertino. Most rumors suggest the next generation iPhone will have a 4″ screen, a thinner aluminum enclosure, and likely an A6 CPU, and a release time frame could be somewhere between summer and fall of 2012.

The iPhone 5,1 reference was first discovered by @Filippobiga on Twitter – you can follow us there too – who also pointed out the references to two unreleased iPad 3 models, also shown in the screenshot as iPad 3,2 and iPad 3,3. Presumably, those are for the upcoming iPad model that is expected to debut sometime in early 2012 with a retina display.

  1. [...] few hints about potential upcoming products from Apple. First, the Sprint iPad 2 reference, then an iPhone 5 reference, and now a codename reference to an unreleased Apple TV unit dubbed “J33″ has been [...]

    What!!! no way who didn’t think apple was just gonna call it quits with the iPhone 4s and iPad 2!!! Truly a shock!

  3. James says:

    LOL @ Ryan! I completely agree… huge new! Apple is making another iPhone! WOW!!

  4. :( says:

    Apple rarely has these slip ups, they’re usually very secretive about upcoming products even though we know a new iPhone is in the works. Sad to say, this is the result of Steve passing, and the ensuing relaxed attitude about secrecy and expectations.

    :\

    What in the h%{* are you talking about frowny face? LOL

    1) This is a tiny piece of XML code or something. I seriously doubt the CEO Apple reviews all the code that goes into an OSX update.

    2) Exactly what “secret” do you thnk slipped here, anyway? That there’s another iPhone on the horizon? EVERYONE knows that.

    3) Apple “secrets” slip ALL the time. Under Jobs watch, multiple prototype iPhones were lost and posted on gizmodo.

    Jobs was brilliant but had nothing to do with this.
