So far all Apple is doing in this update is trying to get the rumor mill going on their next devices? Usually X.1 updates have some over hyped feature to give Apple an excuse to make more commercials.

What's all this iPhone 5 nonsense? The iPhone 4S IS THE IPHONE 5!!! I'll just wait for the iPhone 6 (or whatever they will call it). And before you all jump on me for "not knowing what I'm talking about" let me give you all a little something to ponder over. iPhone (1) iPhone 3G (2) iPhone 3GS (3) iPhone 4 (4) Obvioulsy called the "4" cause it was the 4th generation iPhone. And this for some reason is the reason everyone "thinks" the next iPhones from here on out will go in numerical order. iPhone 4S (5) *6th Generation iPhone is next (calling it iPhone 5 would be stupid) So yeah, if you want your iPhone 5 so bad just get the 4S... hahaha.

So they went from iPhone 3G to iPhone 3GS. I suppose the iPhone 3GS was the iPhone 4 right?
No buddy. The iPhone 4S is an upgraded iPhone 4. The iPhone 5 is the next model. (They could always name it something different, but it won't be 6).
EDIT: To clarify, iPhone 3,1 = iPhone 4. iPhone 4,1 = iPhone 4S. That could only mean that iPhone 5,1 = iPhone 5 (unless of course they name it something different) It won't be 6 because that would skip the number 5 altogether...

How long before release do these plist entries usually appear? As far as I remember they appear a long time before the product is even unveiled.

So tell me. Why was the iPhone 4 called the iPhone 4? It's called the 4 cause it's the 4th generation iPhone right? Calling the next iPhone (which WILL be the 6th generation iPhone) iPhone 5 won't make any sense. Tell me why didn't they just call each iPhone by its corresponding generation?
iPhone, iPhone 2, iPhone 3 and so on? The next iPhone won't be called the 5. I don't think it'll be called 6 either. That would just confuse people. Shoot when the iPhone 4 was announced so many people assumed it was a 4G phone.

Not like we haven't seen these pop up then disappear before. This isn't quite news, per say. Also, please check the spelling. It really is becoming rather difficult to not say something about every typo.

You can numerically count the phones as they come out – but hardware-wise (which is the way that tech communities prefer to look at things) the iPhone 4S is the fourth iPhone. That is why its hardware name is iPhone 4,1. There was no iPhone 2G; it went from iPhone, to iPhone 3G to iPhone 3GS. Since the iPhone 3GS was just an upgraded model of the iPhone 3G, they didn't name the hardware anything special. iPhone 3G = iPhone 2,1 and iPhone 3GS = iPhone 2,2. That is why the iPhone 4 is 3,1 and the iPhone 4S is 4,1.
I see what you're saying, but you're not counting them right.
