Hot on the heels of rumors about Apple evaluating LTE components for the next iPhone, it looks like more evidence of LTE in the next iPhone has surfaced. According to reports online, a Cydia developer discovered some references to LTE in the next iPhone. Apparently there are some code strings in iOS 5.1 with the text: “Enabling 4G will end your phone call. Are you sure you want to enable 4G?” as well as other references to enabling and disabling 4G when on calls on FaceTime.
In addition to hints of the 4G LTE iPhone, there are also hints of FaceTime over 4G spotted in the code as well. Could Apple finally be giving into what users want by letting FaceTime work over mobile data? We can’t say for sure. But we’ll keep our eyes and ears peeled and let you know if we find out.
