iPhone “4S”, code named “N94″, has received an FCC ID. MacRumors reported on this earlier today, and stated that the evidence was found within the latest beta of iOS 5. A tipster notified the site of a new file within iOS 5 beta 7 which made reference to the revamped iPhone 4. The specific file is named “RegulatoryInfo-N94AP@2x~iphone.png”. It’s essentially an image which displays the FCC ID, a code which distinguishes it from any other iPhone.
“According to the new file, the unreleased N94 iPhone has been assigned a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) ID of BCG-E2430A. This compares to the BCG-E2380A identifier on the GSM iPhone 4 and the BCG-E2422A identifier on the CDMA iPhone 4.”
On released iPhones this info can be found on the back of the handset as part of the small print, above the FCC logo. The fact that it has this identifier seems to add further evidence in favor of the device actually being released. Again, we still don’t know if this is going to be a cheaper model that is released alongside the iPhone 5, or if it is the 5th generation iPhone itself. Only time will tell.
