New "iPad3,1", "iPad3,2", "iPhone4,1" and "iPhone4,2" strings discovered in iOS 5 beta.
Apple unveiled iOS 5 on Monday at the WWDC 2011 and released the first iOS 5 beta to developers. iOS 5 brings tons of new features and improvement to the iPhone and iPad. iOS 5 is compatible with the iPads, iPhone 4 and the iPhone 3GS, but Apple is expected to at least release a new iPhone this Fall. According to TUAW, developers discovered already strings in iOS 5 that point to actually four new devices. The new strings are "iPad3,1", "iPad3,2", "iPhone4,1" and "iPhone4,2" strings discovered in iOS 5 beta. According to MacRumors the two iPhone strings already appeared in January in iOS 4.3 betas.
Does that mean we will see two new iPhones and two new iPads soon? Sorry, these model strings have no release date on them and it is not said that Apple will release them any time soon. The iPad model numbers are somewhat clear. They are for the iPad 3 Wi-Fi and the iPad 3 Wi-Fi 3G. The iPad 3 is supposed to be working on CDMA and GSM. The two iPhone model numbers are though confusing considering the dual-mode chip. It also worth noting that there is no future iPod touch model number to be found in iOS 5.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
