iPhone 6s and 6s Plus show up in data logs; no iPhone 6c in sight

All rumours so far seem to be pointing towards two new iPhones launching in September, and this latest leak is no exception.

A marketing and analytics firm has scoured its web traffic data and discovered info on two new iPhone 6s handsets.

The data, which ran across the month of July, revealed two new phone entries with the following identifiers: “iphone8,1” and “iphone8,2”. There were 87 instances of the former and 67 of the latter.

Remember, though, identifiers don’t equate directly to an iPhone model number. For instance, the iPhone 6 identifier is “iphone7,2” and the iPhone 6 Plus identifier is “iphone7,1”.

As such, that seems to imply that there are two sequel devices to last year’s iPhone models currently in existence.

“The apps we’re seeing these devices using span a range of popular apps, including travel, games and lifestyle apps,” explains Fiksu, the company behind the report.

It continues: “The overwhelming majority of the usage is coming from the US, with a couple of hits from Germany and Brazil.”

What’s interesting, however, is that there’s no evidence of a third phone, the much-rumoured 4in iPhone 6c.

“This data does seem to run counter to the suggestion that Apple will also unveil a 6c, however, as we’re not seeing a third device being tested,” reads the Fiksu report.

While some reports have claimed an iPhone 6C will launch alongside the new iPhones in September, others suggest the device has been either scrapped or pushed back to 2016.

Apple is yet to officially confirm the existence of an iPhone 6s or a phablet 6s Plus spin-off.

However, it’s expected to formally unveil both devices at a special event on 9 September.

Do you think Apple is going to announce two new iPhones in only a few weeks? Let us know in the comments.
