An iPhone on steroids

Apple has not released an iPhone update in over three months and there are no forthcoming updates planned, at least not any that we know of. The reason for this odd turn of events, according to some speculation, is Apple’s desire to keep its upcoming tablet a secret.

The tablet could feature an iPhone OS or an OS very similar to the iPhone’s. An Apple source has told Boy Genius Report that there could be too much tablet-related code in an update to the iPhone’s OS, and Apple does not want to leak any information before their event at the end of January.

Apple’s tablet is, according to the latest rumors, kind of like an advanced iPhone – “an iPhone on steroids”. It is expected to have an ARM processor, not an Intel Atom or Pine Trail CPU. Most people now seem to agree that it will not run a full version of OS X, as that might be overkill for this kind of gadget.
