Speculation that Apple is planning a new iPhone is mounting after the latest firmware upgrade appeared to contain details of the device.
Tech sites are reporting that hackers who trawled through the code found evidence of a reference to a “iPhone 2.1”.
As yet Apple has yet to confirm or deny whether this denotes a new iPhone, which has fed further speculation in the blogosphere.
Prior to the latest developments, the specifications of a follow-up phone had been the subject of extensive guesswork, with many predicting that the features will include a copy and paste function which would allow users to input large amounts of text quickly and easily.
Earlier this month, Apple’s acting chief executive officer Tim Cook appeared to quash hopes that the company is planning an iPhone Nano when he said that Apple has no intention of playing in the low-end mobile phone business.
During the final quarter of last year, Apple sold around 4.3 million iPhones helping to record revenues.
