The iPhone 5 should be getting an update soon – the iPhone 5S probably – but what could that update be? The closer we get to launch, the more likely it is one of the parts suppliers will let something slip, like the motherboard of the new phone.
The photo was sent to iOSDoc from a “very reliable source” and
it clearly shows an Apple A7 chipset – that’s the successor to the A6
in the iPhone 5 and latest iPad.
The GPU will reportedly be PowerVR SGX554MP4 (quad-core) like in the iPad 4, up from SGX543MP3 (tri-core) in the iPhone 5.
The iPhone 5S will keep the 4” 640 x 1136 display – that’s not very
surprising, given that changing the screen size will mean either
sacrificing sharpness (if Apple keeps the resolution) or app
compatibility (if the resolution is adjusted accordingly).
The tipster also mentioned that Siri will get cool new abilities in
iOS 7, but had nothing to share on battery capacity (more CPU and GPU
cores will need to be fed) or any camera upgrades.
