Cult of Mac reports that they are seeing evidence of the iPad 3 powered by iOS 6 on their server stats.
So what does this mean? Is the iPad 3 going to come preloaded with iOS 6? Don’t count on it. Apple’s latest beta os iOS 5.1 hasn’t been released yet, but we’ll probably see it come out whenever the iPad 3 hits store shelves. It seems fairly clear though that Apple is making a lot of progress on iOS 6 and we might even see a preview of it on Wednesday with a full release later this summer.
Apple has been aggressively updating the operating systems for both iOS and OS X lately, moving both to an annual revision schedule. It’s a good sign that they are not resting on any laurels.
