You have got to love Apple’s sense of humor. The folks in Cupertino have left a nice easter egg in the latest iOS 5.1 beta. 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman went looking inside the 5.1 beta 2’s .plist files and came across something that made us chuckle.

Apple knows how the blogosphere works, and the rumor mill typically predicts future product names based off internal references in iOS beta SDKs. It looks like we all just hit the jackpot.


Based on this .plist, we know that there will be an Apple TV 9, iPad 10, iPhone 11, and something weird called “iFPGA.” We’re going to bank on that last one being an iMicrowave.

  • The last 1 is definitly a iToilet lol

  • Glad they can keep a sense of humor around the company.

  • What if this is actually true lol

    Funny thing, Steve Jobs left about 5 years worth of products.
    I’m not surprised the developers did this.
