There is little doubt that Apple is already at work on the successor to the iPhone 5 and the next version of iOS. Signs that Apple may have begun to do some early testing surfaced today courtesy of The Next Web. A number of developers have contacted it with reports of a new iPhone identifier and OS number showing up in app usage logs.
