It seems that one iOS developer discovered that the app name “iPhone 6.1″ running iOS 7 was making requests from an IP address within Apple’s campus. iPhone 6 is believed to be launched in the middle of this year. The Next Web also tells that “although OS and device data can be faked, the unique IP footprint leading back to Apple’s Cupertino campus leads us to believe that this is not one of those attempts.” This report confirms that Apple continues to regularly push new iPhone models and new iOS versions, and it confirms just that, nothing more.
