iOS 4 Code Suggests Verizon iPhone, iPad 2 Are Being Field Tested

A clever tipster pointed the folks at Boy Genius Report to something rather curious hidden within iOS 4: A block of code which allows a CDMA iPhone or iPad 2 to be activated automatically without iTunes.

Boy Genius Report explains that such an auto-activate code tends to show up in iOS right before a major product launch and is designed to simplify field-testing. The code is always removed right before the device launch, of course. [Boy Genius Report]
