New devices in OS 3
Following the beta release of the iPhone OS 3.0, an observer has noted that Apple included code for several new product designations, according to the Boy Genius Report. In addition to the iPhone2,1 hardware ID that was noticed in January, the upcoming OS allegedly includes a second model, iPhone 3,1, which could indicate yet another handset in the product pipeline.
There are also two new iPod IDs for unannounced products; iPod2,2 and iPod3,1, while hardware designations iProd0,1 and iFPGA do not fit into any recognizable category of existing devices.
The mystery IDs could simply represent testing equipment, or add further evidence that Apple is working on a new product such as a netbook or tablet. All of the speculation remains unconfirmed, although analysts have already predicted at least one new iPhone model and a 10-inch screen netbook.
