  • iPhone 3.1.3 and 4.0 Spotted in the Wild?

    Boy Genius Report, the website of the popular Engadget blogger, posted an excerpt from their server visitor log that showed browsers claiming to be using the "iPhone OS 4_0" and "iPhone OS 3_1_3" operating systems accessing the site. Observers have seized on this as evidence that a new OS revisions are being tested on the Internet, though the log entries are not in themselves proof that these systems exist.

    Just a few weeks ago, an iPhone carrying the hardware designation "3,1" was spotted by Pandav, the developers of iBart, on the San Francisco Bay Area's rapid transit system. The combination on new hardware codes and software user agents has encouraged the spread of talk about new releases. However, there are browser add-ons that enable a user to just type in any information at all into the "user agent" field that is being reported by the browser. The MacRumors site notes that they've seen log entries like those reported by BGR that seem to be fake:
    In this case, we also found similar user agent strings in our logs, though they were not originating out of an Apple IP address, but instead out of somewhere in Florida. Little else can be said about the finding.
    Of course, this hasn't stifled speculation as to the possible features that will come with the upgrade, including such things as Bluetooth file transfer support and the addition of turn-by-turn voice guidance to Maps, which is currently only available on the Droid.

      The only reason Apple would call their next iPhone "4G" is because they started to call their second iPhone the iPhone 3G but 4G would refer as the fourth generation. I doubt the next iPhone would be actually a 4G as in network speed. My bet is that everyone will call it the 4G iPhone but it won't have a second name, just iPhone. Just like the iPod Touch. I don't think they can come up with a second name thats longer than "3GS" that has a meaning highlighting a new feature without looking stupid.

      All I want at this point is a front and back camera and iChat. Or ability to load and use any IM client with camera. Ten my iPhone will have complete world dominance.

      It's been over 6 years since I made my first video call on a phone. Since then I think I've used it twice. It really isn't all it's cracked up to be and I certainly won't miss it if it's not on the next iPhone!
