Apple iPhone 3,1 Being Tested?

iphone-3g-2009Recently an iPhone app developer spotted a new iPhone reference number in some analytics software what referred to iPhone 3,1. Currently there are no known phones assigned that reference number. The last Apple [AAPL] phone to launch was the iPhone 3G S that had the reference iPhone2,1. This could potentially mean that Apple are working on a new iPhone that will possibly launch next year.

The Apple iPhone3,1 reference was first spotted just a few months back in the firmware, but this time the information was found available in the wild, so to speak, making it a little more likely that a new phone is on it’s way.

References to “iPhone3,1” was first discovered in the iPhone firmware files back in August, but this seems to be the first time that it has been spotted “in the wild”. Apple similarly began testing the iPhone 3GS (iPhone2,1) back in October of 2008 about 8 months ahead of its launch. At the time, the usage was similarly focused in the San Francisco Bay Area where Apple is located.

As of yet we only have rumours about a new iPhone with one of them being a multi-core processor for handling more powerful applications.
