iPhone 4G LTE currently being tested by carriers

Potentially good news for those of you not content with the iPhone’s current speeds: According to information picked up by mobile site BGR, Apple-partnered carriers are now testing a new 4G, LTE-enabled model of the iPhone. The discovery came after the site got a hold of an internal iOS test build where, buried inside, was a property list file for LTE.

Earlier last week, AT&T confirmed plans to launch “at least one” LTE smartphone by the end of the year and, as it happens, chatter suggests that Apple could announce the iPhone 4’s successor within a month. With that being said, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the LTE model would be the iPhone 5, but the timing does seem to fit.

Assuming that all of this iPhone chatter is correct, we shouldn’t have to wait too much longer to find out for sure. In the meantime, if you’d like to take a look at the evidence for yourself, head over to BGR’s report at this link.
