Apple is testing the upcoming new iPhones in the wild. The product identifiers have been spotted in app access logs.

Apple is seen to unveil the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus on September. This is in less than a month. It is accepted that the iPhone 6S will go on sale on September 18 or September 25. Apple's partners have been busy for a while to manufacture millions of new iPhones.

Apple naturally also started to test the new devices in the wild. App marketing company Fiksu has confirmed this. They spotted the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus in access logs appearing as iPhone 8,2 and iPhone 8,1 respectively. 

The iPhone 6 has as identifier iPhone 7,2 and the iPhone 6 Plus uses iPhone 7,1. 

Fiksu spotted about 150 unique devices used in July. Most units are located in the US. The first iPhone 6S users accessed popular apps including travel, games, and lifestyle apps.

The new iPhone will look like the iPhone 6. Apple is not changing the outside appearance. The beauty is in the inside. A new case material is supposed to make the iPhone 6S avoid bendgate. The Force Touch screen is the stand out new feature besides performance enhancements across the board.
