Server logs reveal iPads with iOS 6, retina displays in Cupertino
Is iOS 6 already on a few trusted iPads locked deep away somewhere within the Cupertino fort? If the information found in some recent server logs is any indication, then it may very well be possible.

ARS Technica recently took at look at its monthly browser logs and found some interesting device information. First of all, they found 346 visits from iPads with a screen resolution of 2048 x 1536, which coincides with the rumored retina display resolution and other reports of analytical data showing a device named “iPad HD” with that resolution.

Additionally, there were iPad user agents from Apple’s corporate IP block that were running iOS 5.0.1, iOS 5.1, and, most interestingly, iOS 6. The iOS 6 devices were also running a newer build of WebKit.

It is pretty doubtful that Apple’s March event will include an iOS 6 announcement, especially considering that iOS 5.1 hasn’t been released to the public yet. It would make sense, though, that iOS 6 would be in its infancy and may be planned for the fall when the next generation of iPhone is rumored to be announced.
