iChat Code Found Hidden in iOS

A string found lurking in iOS’s source code hints at the possibility that Apple will be bringing iChat to their mobile operating system. iOS has been lacking a native chat client, and while iMessage reduces the need for instant messaging, it’s still very helpful to have a unified chat client to talk with friends on various messaging protocols. It’s suspected that Apple will be bringing the iMessage service to iChat for Mac for seamless chatting, but nothing official has been announced. Being able to sync chat messages, logs, notifications, and contacts between devices using iCloud would be wonderful.
