A developer has just discovered that iOS 5.1 contains traces of codes linked to the existence of an LTE-compatible iPhone (4G). Traces that also indicate that FaceTime functionality would be expected to work on the mobile broadband network.
Available for download since March 7, developer Sagar Krishna will have taken two weeks to explore the bowels of the new iOS 5.1 and discover particularly interesting information. Thus, this developer, who is used to publishing these works on Cydia, explains, through a video, having discovered lines of codes revealing the existence of a new iPhone model compatible with the LTE (4G) mobile network. In fact, it is precisely through several new command lines introduced in iOS 5.1 that the developer inferred that an iPhone “LTE” was in preparation. For example, a command line contains the following text: “Activating 4G will end your phone call. are you sure you want to activate 4G? ”. In addition, another command line offers the activation or deactivation of 4G during a telephone call or a FaceTime call. While one might think that the “4G” references could be linked to the features of the new iPad, the fact that these are linked to “telephone calls” is no longer in doubt that these are linked to the next iPhone… which will therefore be LTE (4G) compatible.
We discuss it on the forum.

The lines of codes discovered:
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 .;
