Boy Genius Report is reporting about a block of low level operating system code found in iOS 4 which reveals codenames for CDMA iPhone 4 and the next-gen iPad. Their sources at Apple has confirmed that the queries you see in the screenshot below refers to CDMA iPhone (on Verizon) and iPad 2 and that they are about to hit the field testing stage. Also these new devices are said to auto-activate, bypassing iTunes for activation. Apple probably has done it so that carriers may not be able to find anything in the activation logs.

Verizon iPhone 4

Our source says that the code queries the device, and if the device is either a CDMA iPhone or iPad 2, the device will auto-activate, thus bypassing the need for iTunes. We’re told this block of code has appeared every year consecutively before a major iPhone / device release, removed right before launch.

iPad 2

In a separate report, they have also got confirmation for platform code of CDMA iPhone, which is said to be N92AP.

With every new rumor and report, a CDMA iPhone 4 and the next-gen iPad looks very likely for January launch. Share your thoughts on this with us in the comments below.  [via BGR]
