Apple is always on the move to come up with the next big thing. Some of you may even be reading this on their latest innovation, the iPhone 5.

Chances are you’ve heard that the 5S was right around the corner, and even though rumors said the 5S would be here as early as Spring 2013, the iPhone 6 may be closer than you think.

Application developers have found in their app usage logs references to a new iPhone identifier, iPhone 6.1, running iOS 7 operating system, according to reports by Reuters.

Apple’s iPhone 5 normally bears the identifiers “iPhone 5.1” and “iPhone 5.2” and is powered by the iOS 6 operating system, so the updated identifiers point towards the testing and development of a brand new operating system.

Apple typically tags the interim version of its phones with an “S” before moving on to a new version. But the iPhone 5S will inevitably be on the iOS 6 operating system, and iOS 7 points towards the upcoming release of an iPhone 6.

The iPhone 5 came out in September of 2012, but with advances being tested so quickly, there is a good possibility that you won’t have to wait until September 2013 for the iPhone 6!
