Just a day ago, we have reported you about the suspicious report from the sources claiming the Cupertino Company is working on the 4G LTE components for the next-generation iPhone 5, and the component’s producers have already submitted their components to the Apple to finalize its sixth-generation iPhone 5 design and specifications before entering it in the production chain. However, a day after the suspicious report, finally we have some solid proof regarding the addition of 4G LTE technology in the sixth-generation iPhone 5.

It is reported that developers out there have just found out a section of strings inside the recently seeded iOS 5.1 to the iOS devices that confirms the world that Apple is finally including the 4G LTE networking feature in the upcoming iPhone device. The developer has just found out an interesting tidbit regarding the addition of 4G LTE on the iPhone. According to the discovered snippet of code, it is reported that the device will not support voice-over LTE (voLTE) at first, as one of the discovered string in the exploration of the iOS represents that the on-going call will be terminated if 4G connection activates on the device.  The string is “Enabling 4G will end your phone call.”

It seems that Apple is looking forward to include the 4G LTE technology in the iPhone 5, but not going to activate it at 100% performance, as the 4G LTE technology is not yet completely compatible with the smartphones, and requires a lot of battery packs to serve for couple of hours on the board. However, Apple has already seeded its first 4G LTE enabled device – the third-generation iPad in the market with superb 4G LTE network performance, and reportedly, the device works very well on the network in different areas.

“4G_ON_CALL_CANCEL” = “Cancel”;
“4G_ON_CALL_OK_DISABLE” = “Disable”;
“4G_ON_CALL_OK_ENABLE” = “Enable”;
“4G_ON_CALL_WARNING_DISABLE” = “Disabling 4G will end your phone call. Are you sure you want to disable 4G?”;
“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.”;

In addition to the discovery of the arrival of 4G LTE technology in the sixth-generation iPhone, the iOS jailbreak hacker reported that he also found an excerpt of the code in the iOS 5.1 that refers to the arrival of FaceTime Calls on the data networks, probably on the 4G LTE networks, which mean that Apple is finally going to ink deals with the representing carriers to allow users to make FaceTime Video call on the data networks through their next generation iOS devices.

However, Apple is expected to launch its next-generation iPhone 5 on this year’s WWDC 2012 – the annual Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference in the mid of this year among the valuable developers and media personalities, where Apple is expected to show off its next-generation iOS 6 for the iOS devices.
