iPhone 5S or 6, the next variant from Apple in the smartphone category is brewing up rumours about its release. The recent speculations suggest that the next iPhone will operate on iOS 7 with reports hinting that the California company has begun testing for the new device.
The application usage logs are reported to be the source of the new rumours as developers state that recent activity hints at a novel code, which bears the mark of a new operating system from Apple. iPhone 5S or 6 rumours follow speculations of other Apple devices, which have been appearing recently. iPad mini and iPad 5th-generation release speculations have been also circling the market.
The identifiers according to the app logs for the current device, iPhone 5 are iPhone 5,1 and iPhone 5.2, but the new identifiers have the code which reads iPhone 6.1, thus setting the rumour mills in action. The code names cannot be faked, which suggest that there might be some base for the rumours, though there has been no official confirmation.
Reports suggest that Apple has started working on developing iOS 7 and is reported to finalise the features to be included in the first public release of the operating system. The failure of Apple maps application might have been the driving force for the development of the new software.
Rumours hint that iPhone 5S or 6 might release in the middle of this year. Many analysts have negated the notion of Apple releasing the next iPhone at the rumoured time stating that it would be too early, even for the technology giant.
