Next Generation iPhone (5,1) and iPad Also Referenced in iOS 5.1 Beta


iOS 5.1 Beta seems to be a treasure trove of product ids with the exposure of the iPad 2,4 and the J33 codename for the next generation Apple TV. The latest part number to come from iOS 5.1 is the iPhone 5,1 as noted by both @FilippoBiga and 9to5Mac.

The progression of iPhone product numbers are as follows:

iPhone1,1 - Original iPhone
iPhone1,2 - iPhone 3G
iPhone2,1 - iPhone 3GS
iPhone3,1 - iPhone 4
iPhone4,1 - iPhone 4S

iPhone5,1 clearly represents the next generation iPhone that Apple is working on. Rumors have suggested the next iPhone will carry a 4" screen rather than the usual 3.5" screen found in all previous iPhone models. The new iPhone is also believed to have been prototyped with a tapering design in the past, though the most recent rumors suggest the actual release iPhone will not resemble the mockups.

The iPad3,2 reference has been previously seen though iPad3,3 appears new.

Are u kidding???? No thanks


X2..hell no. 4" is plenty big enough. Any bigger and you need cargo pockets to carry it...or a backpack. These gigantic phones with 4.5"+ screens are ridiculous. Why not just add cellular capabilities to an iPad and whip that bad boy out and hold it up to your head?

For the idiots wanting a 5" screen, take your asses over to the impractical world of Android.

Good thing i'll be on sites like Macrumors, so i can sell my temporary phone, the iPhone 4S early enough to get a good price. :D

Absolutely can't wait for the iPhone 6 (calling it the 6, because it's the 6th gen iPhone, until it's official name).

Apple doesn't care, but if they did they'd be embarrassed with Antennagate, followed by batterygate. Two phones in a row with a laundry list of problems.


Someone is clueless & out of touch.



And Android devices aren't marred with the same problems ? Tell that to my flagship Galaxy Nexus, just don't call me on it as I currently won't be able to hear you.... Or text me as it often crashes out of the messaging app....

Watch everyone who said 4' is too big do a total flip flop, wait in line to get one and say "It's revolutionary" :rolleyes:

Ditto for a smaller iPad too.

I don't get why all of these comments were downranked so much. Such an odd hive we've become.



I like it. It made me snicker a little seeing 17 internet know-it-alls pout and mope.
