  • Next iPhone Icon Found in SDK. Looks . . . the same . . .


    Last year everyone got a sneak pic (although crappy resolution) of the iPhone 3g because Apple included an icon in their SDK at the time for the new model. The icon is the one used in iTunes (it shows the image of your phone).

    The icon for the the iPhone model due to be announced and released in the upcoming months has been found in latest SDK for iPhone 3.0 beta 5 firmware. The icon references iPhone version 2,1 which is the next iPhone. The original is 1,1 and the 3g is 1,2.

    Sadly this time around it appears that Apple isn't making the same mistake. The icons for iPhone 2,1 appear to be identical to those of the current iPhone 3g (1,2). Either the rumors about no chrome bezel simply aren't true AND the next iPhone looks identical to the current model OR Apple just has some icons in there as placeholders and will add in new icons for the new model at a later date (which is what we believe).

    If you want to look for yourself and have the beta 5 SDK installed just browse on over to /Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DTDeviceKit.framework/Versions/A/Resources

    or check the out below:

      The irony in your reply given what your signature says.

      The same amount of time it took you to be a **** to him and reply with that crap you could've said you didn't know. Way to be a jackass.

      Personally I think colors would be pretty badass and would definitely distinguish the phone.. look at how ****** Nano 1G's look compared to today's chromatics. Wonder if they'd make a chromatic iPhone? o.0

      they will atleast change the size so we can't all use our 3G case on it. Even if it is identical in ever other way. IMHO

      I think you're right. I guess I'm just hoping the over-all shape stays the same so I don't have to spend a few extra hundred on accessories, but there's always eBay to sell things like juice packs and docks etc. Hopefully we'll find out well before July.

      Please don't ask that, there is not enough room here

      Don't worry about it, people mis-read things and mis-understand things.

      Don't take offence, I'm sure none was intended and life's too short.
