Next-Gen iPhone and iPod touch Model Numbers Discovered In 3.2 SDK

Now that clever people have had time to poke around inside the iPad’s SDK (which was released last week), Engadget is reporting that one clever tipster has found evidence of a new device. Buried within the SDK’s frameworks, their tipster found what they claim is an internal model number for a new iPhone. Additionally, the iPhone OS 3.1.3 Software Update which was released today has references to model number N80, which Engadget has been told is the next iPod touch.

While these discoveries are definitely of interest, it’s no surprise that Apple is working on next-gen versions of the iPhone and iPod touch. Rumors of the next-gen iPhone have been floating around since November of last year, and we do expect to see something this summer.
