New iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 Hit Testing Stage
New iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 Hit Testing Stage.BGR has heard a couple of interesting things recently that indicate a second model of the iPhone 4 has just hit AP testing while the iPhone 5 has supposedly hit the EVT stage. We’ll explain in a moment what that means.The new iPhone 4 is codenamed 3,2 and is believed to be a CDMA version of the phone that will allow it to land on networks such as Verizon [VZ]. The AP stage is the very last stage of testing before a product goes to the manufacturer ready for release.
BGR point out 3 scenarios which reveal that the phone could be compatible with all networks and include a SIM card. The next scenario is that the phone is not CDMA at all, but instead is a hardware variation.The final scenario is relating to CDMA again but this time it has a SIM slot to be compatible with roaming in other countries. This last stage doesn’t seem like an Apple sort of thing to do.Next up, we hear that the iPhone 5 has hit the EVT stage which is the engineering verification test phase prior to the DVT phase.In the next few months about where Apple is headed with a CDMA device, or a new redesign we will find out.
