iPad running iOS 6.0 with high-res display revealed by server logs

Apple’s next-generation iPad running iOS 6.0 may have already visited a number of popular websites. While going through logs in preparation for a monthly browser report, ArsTechnica discovered 346 visits from a device with a screen resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 — matching the resolution of the display rumored to be coming to Apple’s iPad 3. The site then began to look at iPad user agents coming from Apple’s Cupertino corporate IP block and discovered that Apple appears to be browsing the Web with iPads running iOS 6.0. The listing displayed iPads running iOS 5.0, the current iOS 5.0.1, the developer version of iOS 5.1 and the upcoming iOS 6.0 as well. iPads running iOS 6.0 were also using a newer build of WebKit, version 535.8, up from WebKit 534.46. ArsTechinca believes the Cupertino-based company will release the slate with iOS 5.1 and release iOS 6.0 with the next iPhone. Apple’s iPad 3 event is scheduled for Wednesday, March 7th.
