Surprise! iOS 5 contains references to two new iPad and iPhone models

TUAW

It’s not really a surprise. While earlier this year we saw how the iOS 4.3 beta hid references to the iPad 2 introduced shortly thereafter and to a still unpublished model of the Apple phone, the iOS 5 beta recently distributed to developers not only continues to feature references to the next generation iPhone but also records a new iPad .

This new model, referred to as the iPad3.1 and iPad3.2, distinguishing as usual between the WiFi and 3G versions, leaves no doubt that, at least in Apple’s offices, they already have prototypes of an iPad 3 that would presumably bring about slight changes in view of an anticipated launch that, in all probability, could arrive before the end of the year.

As for the iPhone 5, already discovered earlier, little surprise beyond the absence of its younger brother, a new iPod touch that at least for the moment is nowhere to be found in the guts of the next version of Apple’s mobile operating system, despite the fact that the month of September (the date on which iPods are traditionally updated) is as it were just around the corner.
