As per previous reports, it isn’t the first time we are hearing about iOS 6 showing up in user logs. On top of that, we reported recently that Apple has allegedly decided to replace Google Maps in favor of its own version of a mapping application simply called ‘Maps’ in iOS 6 as well. The operating system which is rumored to be announced at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) next month seems to have gotten another tit-bit of information to substantiate that fact just a little more.
One iOS app developer told the folks over at 9to5mac that it had noticed a few users running iOS 6 to use said developers’ application. The source claims that the ‘iOS 6’ string was noticed while the developer was collecting the operating system versions from analytics software. However, it hasn’t been able to accurately trace precisely when the string began to appear but what they can say is that it appeared sometime over the past week.
In addition to that, 9to5mac also reports that other developers that they were in contact with began seeing similar hits as far back as late April. For the sake of speculation, this could mean that the Cupertino-based tech giant could be testing the compatibility of its new OS with applications from the App Store. With all these rumors circulating about iOS 6 coming up during WWDC next month and this latest bit of information that indicates 3 devices running an application from a developer, what do you think?
