Very little is known about Apple’s next iPhone, but screens and files hidden in the handset’s latest beta software are providing some major clues.
iPhone 3.0 beta testers are stumbling upon menus, system preferences and text strings that Apple tried to keep secret — presumably because they give away features that will appear in the next upgrade to the iPhone hardware, which will probably be released this summer. Highlights include a video recorder, an auto-focus camera and a digital compass. Beta-testing sleuths have also found tantalizing suggestions about the operating system, including an unannounced tethering capability, voice control and a “find my iPhone” feature.
Apple has not released any information on the new iPhone hardware. You can read the list of possibilities HERE.
