Yes, it’s true: We’re getting at least two new iPhones soon. Try to act surprised. Mobile marketing platform Fiksu this week did a search through its logs to see if it could find any new Apple devices… and lo and behold, it did. Specifically, Fiksu found that devices that were identified as “iPhone 8,1” and “iPhone 8,2” showed up in its logs repeatedly over the last month. In case you’re wondering, the iPhone 6 Plus shows up in Fiksu’s logs as “iPhone 7,1” and the iPhone 6 shows up as “iPhone 7,2,” so it’s not as though Apple is going to skip ahead all the way to the iPhone 8 this year.

One thing to note here is that there are only two devices that have shown up in the platform’s logs instead of three. This suggests (but certainly does not prove) that Apple will only release the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus this fall and not the long rumored “iPhone 6c” that will be a smaller four-inch device on par with the iPhone 5.

At any rate, Apple’s big launch event is expected to occur on September 9th, so we have less than a month to go before we know for certain.
