Traces of iPhone OS 4.0 found in server logs

By on December 14, 2009, 4:44 PM
Evidence of a major iPhone OS update surfaced yesterday as the folks at Boy Genius Report discovered traces of iPhone OS 4.0 in their server logs. This pairs nicely with the recent rumors of Apple's fourth-generation iPhone, which is supposedly in or entering production and could appear as early as mid-2010.

It's worth noting that the iPhone 3G/OS 2.0 and 3GS/OS 3.0 both arrived during the same period (July 2008 and June 2009). While few details are currently available, it seems fair to expect a major platform update and new device in the coming summer.

BGR also discovered iPhone OS 3.1.3 in the logs, which will probably bring minor bug fixes and tweaks to the present version 3.1.2, and should appear soon. Let's hear about all of the changes you'd like to see in the forthcoming iPhone hardware and software.

Was it found by accident by someone or was he actually looking for this? I find hard to believe that someone will actually notice the OS and write about it on the internet if they weren't interested.

Lets hope they offer an upgrade to the 3rd gen ipod touch folks who have 802.11n, and FM transmit and receive hardware, but no capability to use it yet.

Upgrade? I bet my pinky finger that you have to buy a new iPhone for the 4.0.
