‘iPhone 4S’ Discovered in Latest iTunes Beta


Update 1: The beta is now back up for download. MacRumors notes ‘iPhone 4S’ was first referenced in iTunes Beta 6.1 back on August 29th, 2011.

Apple released a new version of iTunes beta yesterday, and today the ‘iPhone 4S’, also known as ‘N94’ has been discovered within this beta, as reported by 9to5Mac. This new beta has since been pulled from the Apple Developer Center (coincidence?).

The specific mention of iPhone 4S all but confirms there will be a version similar in design to the iPhone 4. This new iPhone 4S mention referred to black and white variants of CDMA and GSM models, possibly a hint at dual-mode capability.

Earlier, 9to5Mac also noted a screenshot from Radio Shack that showed an ‘iPhone 5’ show up in Sprint’s product directory. We saw an earlier label of an ‘iPhone 5’ appear online as posted by @iH8sn0w:

Apple is set to announce a new iPhone on Tuesday at their ‘Let’s Talk iPhone’ event, and the latest speculation is that it will include the dual-core A5 chip currently in the iPad 2, an 8MP camera, 1GB of RAM, and a new revolutionary voice navigation called Assistant. What do you think is coming Tuesday? iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S, or both?

    Apple is toying with us. There has to be an iPhone 5.

    I might just walk off a cliff if it’s just going to be a 4S.

    In all seriousness, I will be severely disappointed (as will many other people waiting on the iPhone 5) if those improvements above were the only new things with the new iPhone. C’mon bigger screen!!

    I don’t want an iPhone 4S.

    We don’t need another iPhone 4 with “slight improvements”

    They had the iPhone 3G and then the iPhone 3GS.. What a waste.

    iPhone 5, or nothing at all.

    I hope they don’t let mostly all of us down. I will be so dissapointed

    I would say the 3GS was a waste … It was a lot faster then the 3G and if you upgraded the 3G to use multitasking you know it was a nightmare. The 3GS on the other hand handled multitasking quite well.

    I think it was a nice bridge to the 4.
