According to a big spike in traffic volume reported by Onswipe Apple is testing iOS7 with an unknown iPhone rumored to be the next generation iPhone 6 before the Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco June 10-14. Onswipe, a dynamic to mobile conversion company reported that traffic from iOS 7 based iPhones and iPads shot to the roof from the San Fran area in the last few days.
It seems like Apple is deviating from their previous beta testing methods for iOS and devices. In the past, Apple used a selected few high level headquarter employees to test their devices and operating systems (iOS) before releasing them to the general public. That method ensures Apple’s secrecy before the announcement and release of the product. Even with such method a few pictures of upcoming products ended up leaking to the public. Recently, a few pictures of the rumored iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 found their way on the Internet and quickly circulated.
In addition to Onswipe’s detection of increased iOS 7 traffic, the mobile website conversion company also was able to identify what the soon to be announced iOS 7 users were searching for and clicking on. The most searched and looked at during the beta testing and traffic spikes were: Apple’s stock dram and Kid Kudi; an obvious fan of Apple and the hip-hop recording artist.
