Web Logs Show Usage of Unreleased Versions of Apple’s iOS

This is the Surface Studio

iOS 7 has a release date of September 18, 2013, but already records of iOS versions 7.0.1, 7.0.2, and 7.1 are appearing in web logs, as reported as popular sites like Macworld. It was the Apple follower website 9to5Mac that first reported finding their website being accessed from devices carrying these highly advanced, still unknown to the public, versions of Apple’s iOS 7.

The only explanation that can be found is that workers at Apple are testing out these unreleased versions of iOS 7 by using them to access sites on the net. There have even been reports of devices running on iOS 8, which, before this time has remained completely unheard of. These reports started appearing near the end of August.

What does all this mean? Future iOS versions are already in the works. While Apple has always been, understandably, very secretive about their latest developments, webmasters are proving to be a helpful resource for information leaks. Unfortunately, the reports cannot give details about the kind of new features awaiting customer experience.

Nevertheless, many are expecting these new versions to be feature-packed and make waves in the technological world, in spite of the fact that the iOS versions 7.0.1 and 7.0.2 are not to be more than just some minor bug fixes for the iOS 7. The appearance of future operating system versions in website traffic reports are expected to increase as Apple nears its latest release deadline.
