More ’4G’ Strings Discovered in iOS 5.1

iDownloadBlog reports today that an anonymous tipster notified them of the existence of new 4G LTE strings in iOS 5.1. The jailbreak blog asserts that these strings may have been placed there for the next-generation iPhone 5 that has been rumored to release this summer at the WWDC. Sadly, these strings are most likely meant for the current iPhone 4S that has a small “4G” indicator when on AT&T’s HSPA+ network and they do not reference to true 4G LTE.

Lastly, these strings indicate that FaceTime may work over 4G in the future, but this is unlikely because Apple has included strings in the past that have show the same information. Apple is most likely just testing out how things could work on a 4G LTE iPhone, while the final product is almost definitely going to be different. Check after the break for the information that iDownloadBlog found and let us know what you think in the comments.

“4G_ON_CALL_WARNING_ENABLE” = “Enabling 4G will end your phone call. Are you sure you want to enable 4G?”;
“4G_ON_FACETIME_4G_WARNING_DISABLE” = “Disabling 4G will end FaceTime. Are you sure you want to disable 4G?”;
“4G_ON_FACETIME_WIFI_WARNING_DISABLE” = “Disabling 4G may end FaceTime. Are you sure you want to disable 4G?”;
“4G_TEXT” = “Using 4G loads data faster, but may decrease battery life.”;
