If you have been following Apple rumors, you might be familiar with the “tradition” of digging through Apple’s beta codes to unearth possible hints of future devices. While specs and names were not given away in these codes, their codenames and such have hinted and confirmed the existence of future products. Well if you’re looking forward to seeing that tradition continue long into the future, you might be in for a disappointment. It seems that Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, is keeping to his word on doubling down on Apple’s secrecy. So much so that hints of upcoming hardware that can be typically found on the iOS file USBDeviceConfiguration.plist have since been removed. Of course this does not mean that the rumor mill or “leaks” will grind to a halt, but as far as official sources are concerned, this could be the beginning of the end. So, anyone else bummed out by this tightening of security, or do you still prefer to be surprised?
