Apple has just made the jump from 3G to 4G with their New iPad, and now the talk is all about the iPhone! Instead of rumors, we actually have proof that the iPhone will be compatible with 4G. This isn’t a huge surprise because all new smartphones from here on-out are expected to be LTE capable, but it is some great news.
Popular Apple web-blog, iDownloadblog, has found that iOS 5.1 has some secrets hidden within the coding. Much of the coding indicates signs to a 4G phone, because the commands cannot be completed by an iPad. So watch the video below as myjailbreakmovies walks you through the coding within the iPhone 4:
To breakdown the video, what they found was some strings that indicated 4G phone calls and text messaging. Obviously these are features that cannot be completed on a iPad, so this leads us to believe we are looking at the signs of a 4G iPhone. Just take a look below at the strings below, even if you aren’t tech-savvy this should be easily understandable:
“4G_ON_CALL_CANCEL” = “Cancel”;
“4G_ON_CALL_OK_DISABLE” = “Disable”;
“4G_ON_CALL_OK_ENABLE” = “Enable”;
“4G_ON_CALL_WARNING_DISABLE” = “Disabling 4G will end your phone call. Are you sure you want to disable 4G?”;
“4G_ON_CALL_WARNING_ENABLE” = “Enabling 4G will end your phone call. Are you sure you want to enable 4G?”;
“4G_ON_FACETIME_4G_WARNING_DISABLE” = “Disabling 4G will end FaceTime. Are you sure you want to disable 4G?”;
“4G_ON_FACETIME_WIFI_WARNING_DISABLE” = “Disabling 4G may end FaceTime. Are you sure you want to disable 4G?”;
“4G_TEXT” = “Using 4G loads data faster, but may decrease battery life.”;
The main part that stirs questions is the 4G call and text related strings, mainly because the iPad isn’t capable of completing those tasks. But the addition to facetime also brings the question to mind, whether the next iPhone will support 4G facetiming? Everything is a bit early to call as of yet, but this does provide us additional proof of a 4G iPhone. Check out the photo’s below for visual proof:

This is surely a huge finding within the iOS coding, and it may possibly mean that the iPhone could be released in the summer months, rather than October like last year. This is the second indication of a 4G iPhone within the past day, so the talks surely are ramping up.
