iOS 5.1 name-checks next-gen iPad, iPhone

Apple's upcoming telly too?

Securing Web Applications Made Simple and Scalable

Apple released iOS 5.1 to app developers yesterday, and already coders are poring over the update in search of references to future products.

Guess what: they found some.

XML files buried within the release point to the next generation of iPhone and iPad, mentioned as, respectively, iPhone5,1 and iPad3,2.

The iPhone 4S is the iPhone4,1, for example.

Code also contains references to a device called the J33, which is believed to be a next-gen Apple TV. Recent Apple TV price cuts made by retailers in the States has led some pundits to predict the small black set-top box will be updated in the near future.

A new Apple TV was referenced as the AppleTV3,1 in previous iOS releases, so it's entirely possible J33 is something altogether new: Apple's own-brand television, perhaps.

iOS 5.1, it's hoped will fix the battery drain woes experienced by some iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 owners, and which was not sorted by iOS 5.0.1. ®
