iOS 5 Reveals Evidence of Two New iPhones and Two New iPads

USB device files in the recently release iOS 5 beta reveal two future iPad 3 models and a pair of iPhone 5 models, according to TUAW.

Specifically, there are declarations buried in the iOS system files that reference "iPad3,1" and "iPad3,2." Likewise, "iPhone4,1" and "iPhone4,2." The iPhone 5 will be a 4th generation unit because the iPhone 3G was technically 1st generation. This throws off the numbering and confuses everyone, so don't fret if you were confused.

Interestingly, there was no mention of a new iPod touch which seems strange considering the device usually ships in September. Perhaps Apple is planning to push back their entire launch schedule and announce the iPhone in September instead of the iPod touch.

The first iPhone is iPhone 0. It's just a technical naming scheme.

@aaa: iPhone1,1 = iPhone Original iPhone1,2 = iPhone 3G the iPhone 3G was a stepping on the iPhone1 platform. It used the same system applications processor, memory, etc. The only thing that was upgraded was the baseband electronics, hence it didn't warrant a new generation from a system design point of view.

Gah, my comment layout was screwed up, my apologies. It should read: iPhone1,1 = iPhone Original. iPhone1,2 = iPhone 3G.
