While all of us ‘regular’ folks have been anxiously awaiting the release of the iOS 5.1, it looks like the Apple guys in Cupertino has been checking out the iOS 6, ready to come out…well in due time.
Ars Technica discovered an unusual set of log reports of that note access to their servers using an iPad with iOS 6.0. Digging deeper into their logs, they also found 365 visits from a device with a screen resolution of 2048 x 1536.
Narrowing the search to the IP addresses originating from the Apple Campus in Cupertino, Ars Technica found reports of access by iPads using iOS 5, iOS 5.0.1, iOS 5.1 and iOS 6. Ars notes that the iPads running iOS 6 seem to be running a slightly newer build of WebKit – while the other iOS versions show WebKit 534.46, the ones claiming to be iOS 6 show WebKit 535.8.
The 365 visits by a device with 2048 x 1536 resolution to Ars Technica, hoewver, may or may not be related to the new iPad. There are monitors with the 2048 x 1536 resolution currently in the market, however the numbers are so few that there the visits may very well be that of the iPad 3 (or the next variation?).
That said, I did a little digging myself on Digital Cupcake’s logs and we’ve received 1 visit with a device with the 2048 x 1536 resolution. As much as I want to believe that someone visited Digital Cupcake on their iPad 3 (iPad HD), Google Analytics showed that the visit originated from New York and on a Mac using a desktop version of Safari.
iPad 3 (iPad HD) is due for launch during the Apple event next week on March 7th so I’m sure we’ll find out exactly what Apple has in store for us.
