Potential Next-Gen iPhone Logic Board Leaked
The French site, Nowhereelse.fr
recently pointed toward two new photos that were originally posted on its Chinese forum, Weiphone
. The photos in question appear to be the front and back of what is being claimed to be the next generation iPhone logic board (the part that houses the processor and other support chips for the device). The board seems to be different from both the logic boards seen in Appleís iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.
According to Nowhereelse
, the screw holes of the logic board seem to line up exactly with those found in the previously leaked shells. The site even created an animated GIF
which showcases the holes lining up. Here, the images seem to be mirrored to provide extra clarity.
There have been quite the number of part leaks for the next-generation iPhone over the past few weeks and the trend is likely to continue until the release of the announcement. This isnít exactly a new phenomenon as it seems to repeat itself every year, considering we saw the iPhone 4S logic board last year pre-release, which helped reveal an A5 processor for the device. This leak isnít as revealing but still seems to provide some insight into what to expect. The increased number of part leaks is likely to correspond with the belief that the Cupertino California company is already ramping up production of the next-generation iPhone. Apple is expected to launch the iPhone on September 12th
so stay tuned for more news as it is released!
