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.

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

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?

This is such a non-story. Really not sure why it was posted. Get back to us when a plist file references a product that we don't know is coming.


Wise up...there can't be a Spring with out a robin harbingering it.

So honestly, did anyone really doubt that Apple is working on a next-gen iphone?


Of course no one would question the fact Apple would Be working on the iPhone 5. It's just that with a 16 month gap between the iPhone 4 and 4S it's looking like the next version may come much quicker than expected with reference to it in software, and news of 4" panels being shipped to Apple.

People who have just upgraded to the 4s - may have there nose put out of joint if the iPhone 5 (the real update most wished the 4s actually was) comes out within 6-8 months of the 4s release....

At least with a 12 month product cycle customers know where they stand, but changing that to a 16 month, and now possibly 8 month - it leaves customers weary and frustrated. One of the best things about Apples iPhones over say android is that you knew your 'flagship model' would last you a reasonable amount of time. It was an assurance as such (unlike Android where even the new Galaxy Nexus will prob be usurped within 3 months).

what is iPhone4,2?


Verizon iPhone 4S

After using a Galaxy Nexus and a HTC Titan in the past month.... all I can say is NO :)

Did you guys think they were just gonna chill and not release phones for a while?

This is kind of a no-brainer to me. Unless the model's inclusion in the iOS frameworks signifies something....in which case please enlighten me.

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).
