Hidden iPhone icons suggests radio app

Hidden icons with a picture of a radio antenna on them have been found hidden inside the iPad and iPhone operating system.

appleradioThey suggest Apple’s much speculated new streaming radio service could be getting ready for launch. The more prominent placement of a radio button in the new iTunes 11 software last year was also said to suggest an incoming radio service.

Details of what the service entails are not known, but Apple entering the radio industry on any level should spell good news.

The buttons, found by graphic designer iAust1n, include a ‘buy’ option, suggesting Apple will be offering the facility to purchase songs being played on-air or online.

The iPhone has never had a radio function, despite rumours suggesting the device has a working but not activated FM receiver inside.
