Apple announced iOS 5 on Tuesday and also released the iOS 5.0 SDK to developers, we have already seen a number of features that will be available in iOS 5, and now the guys over at TUAW have spotted references to future models of the iPhone and iPad.
In the system files of iOS 5 there are references to unreleased iPad models, ‘iPad 3,1; and ‘iPad 3,2’ and also references to the fith generation iPhone ‘iPhone 4,1’ and ‘iPhone 4,2’, as TUAW point out these would relate to the iPhone 5 as Apple refers to the iPhone 3G as the 1st generation iPhone.
We have been hearing rumors that Apple would launch an iPad 3 later this year, with an upgraded Retina display, and these new references could mean that we will see it later this year.
Also the new references to the iPhone 5 could mean that Apple will announce it later this year at the same time the release iOS 5, which would tie in with what they have done historically when they release a major update to iOS.
