Next-gen iPhone logic board hints at redesign, larger processor
A Japanese parts company, Moumantai, says it has obtained a logic board for Apple's next-generation iPhone, commonly expected to be called the iPhone 5S. The board is similar in design to the one for the iPhone 5, but <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287882==http://blog.moumantai.biz/?eid=980175" rel='nofollow'>shows</a> some significant differences in the layout of its chips, circuitry, and holes. While no chips are actually attached, the space for the main processor hints that Apple's next A-series chip will be larger than the A6, which is currently used in the iPhone 5.<br />
<br />
One or more new iPhones are expected to ship in the fall. The new logic board could in theory be intended for <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287847==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/05/29/taiwan.based.supplier.has.long.history.with.apple. rising.star.status/" rel='nofollow'>a low-cost iPhone</a>, but Moumantai specifically suggests that the part is for a 5S. A low-cost iPhone would also, presumably, use a less powerful -- and hence smaller -- processor.
