iOS 6 Banners Appear at Site of WWDC 2012

iOS 6 banners were spotted being put up at Moscone West where Apple's WWDC conference is set to take place from June 11-15.

This is strong indication that WWDC will be the place where the next-generation Apple software will make its debut.

Officials at Apple were spotted using iOS 6 on iPads back in March.

Ars Technica reported that browser user agent strings appearing as iPads running iOS 6.0 began to show up inside their server logs.

"We began looking at iPad user agents coming from Apple's corporate IP block in Cupertino and discovered that Apple appears to be surfing the Web using iPads running what looks like iOS 6.0," wrote Ars Technica. "The whole listing shows iPads running iOS 5, iOS 5.0.1, iOS 5.1 and iOS 6."

"The iPads that appear to be running iOS 6 are also using a slightly newer build of WebKit- the older OSes all show WebKit 534.46, while the ones claiming to be iOS 6 show WebKit build 535.8," continued Ars Technica.

Although the user agent strings can sometimes be faked, Ars Technica filtered its logs to isolate only those entries coming from IPs assigned to Apple's corporate facilities and found that a good amount of visits from devices were reporting themselves as iPads running iOS 6.

The report also cited another observation that included a 2048 x 1536 screen resolution appearing in Google Analytics. These entries are not directly linked to an iPad, but it is one of the only devices on the market that can yield that high of a resolution.

These entries still prove to be somewhat inconsistent though, since the new iPad should only report a 1024 x 768 resolution, according to MacRumors. Even with a higher pixel density, web content would still appear small if it reported itself at 2048 x 1536 resolution.

Judging from this report and the new banners. It looks like iOS will make its debut on the new iPad and probably show up on the next-generation iPhone.
