Is iPhone 6 on the way? Apple testing new version

Apple has started testing a new iPhone and the next version of its iOS software, write Supantha Mukherjee and Chandni Doulatramani.
Application developers have found in their app-usage logs references to a new iPhone identifier, iPhone 6.1, running iOS 7 operating system, the website reported.
Apple's iPhone 5 bears the identifiers "iPhone 5.1" and "iPhone 5.2" and is powered by the iOS 6 operating system.
Developer logs show that the app requests originate from an internet address on Apple's Cupertino campus, suggesting that Apple engineers are testing compatibility for some of the popular apps, the website said.
Raymond James analyst Tavis McCourt, however, expects the next version of the iconic smartphone to be called iPhone 5S and not iPhone 6.
It has been reported that the new iPhone will be released in the middle of 2013. (Reuters)
