There have been a lot of rumors about Apple’s upcoming smartphones. Even if the company doesn’t announce the much rumored budget iPhone, it is definitely going to launch the successor to the iPhone 5. Ever since it released iPhone 3GS after the iPhone 3G, the company has released a smartphone with minor changes and the “S” label every other year. Since it launched the iPhone 5 last year, there has been a lot of speculation that the upcoming smartphone will be called iPhone 5S. The moniker for Apple’s upcoming smartphone has apparently been “confirmed” by Japanese carrier KDDI. It was found hiding in plain sight inside the source code of the carrier’s official website.
KDDI has since removed it, but screenshots have already circulated online. It wouldn’t be impossible to believe that the carrier is getting the website ready in time for the impending launch. This slip-us doesn’t reveal anything significant about the device after all, considering that it has always been widely believed that the iPhone Apple will release this year will be called iPhone 5S. The company is rumored to hold an event on September 10th where it will formally announce both the iPhone 5S as well as the iPhone 5C. [Image via BGR]
