We havent heard very much about iOS 6 so far, but just today, a report from 9to5mac reveals that developers have started seeing iOS 6 devices showing up in usage logs for their apps.
One app developer informed us today that it has recently noticed users running iOS 6 using its app. The developer observed the “iOS6″ string when collecting the OS version from analytics software. It has not been able to trace exactly when the iOS 6 users started appearing, but it was sometime over the past week. Other developers that we spoke to began seeing hits in late April. There is a good chance that this means Apple is amidst iOS 6 compatibility testing with higher-profile applications from the App Store. The process of next-generation versions of iOS appearing in developer usage logs occurred last year too.
The exact release date of the next version is unknown, but since Apple has begun testing iOS 6 out in the field, its safe to say that the release cant be more than a few months away. Follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and subscribe to our newsletter below to receive updates on any new info.
