  • Texas Instruments Already Producing Chips For September New iPhone Release



    Rumors surfaced today claiming Texas Instruments has started producing power management chips for the next iPhone due out in September.

    Texas Instruments already supplies a number of components for Apple including the touchscreen controller and power management chips in the iPhone 4S. The company also produces a control device found in the new iPad. According to RepairLabs blog, their source claims the companyís management is referring to the next iPhone as the iPhone 5.

    A separate Chinese source claims the next iPhone will be ready for a September release as well as feature a larger display. RepairLabs isnít a proven source for Apple rumors, but they did post pictures of the new iPadís back casing in February, and claim the second batch of rumors come from the same Chinese source.

    Expect rumors regarding all things iPhone to pick up between now and the middle of summer. If Apple's announcement schedule holds true, the company wont release a new iPhone until this fall, and will announce the device a few weeks before. Apple's announcements no longer revolve around the WWDC and as such this summer could be rather barren in terms of major announcements outside of Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, and iMac updates.

      Btw I love the mockup in the original post. Edge to edge screen plus thinner top and bottom. Looks great!
      Thought I was the only one that has that light static on phone calls.

      That question is kinda out of place, but I see several people here calling it the iPhone 5 and it just got me thinking.
      According TFA TI employees stated apple execs referred to it as iPhone 5, but who knows at this point. What are the going to do in 5 years... I suppose iPhone X

      Nope tons of people have it. I remember reading a 30page thread on apple support about it. No idea if apple has ever acknowledged it. But it's annoying isn't it!
