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!

Christ, at this point with all the leaks it seems like all we need is a screen leak and we'll be able to assemble a complete damned iPhone 5 before Apple even announces the thing!

iPhone (original) 1
iPhone 3G 2
iPhone 3GS (black or white. Color doesn' matter) 3
iPhone 4 (black or white. Gsm and CDMA) 4
iPhone 4S (black or white.) 5
New upcoming iPhone (black or white or whatever color) 6. I'll bet my iPad that the people calling it the iPhone 5 are wrong. It will be the iPhone 6 or just iPhone.
color and gsm/CDMA don't matter when it comes to the number.

The iPhone 4S should've been called the iPhone 5 but Apple just wanted to mess with everyone and NOT call it the iPhone 5.
I think they will be retarded like the iPad and call it the iPhone without a number or th NEW IPHONE. Which is REALLY STUPID. WHATS going to happen to the NEXT iPhone? Wont that be the new iPhone when it comes out? Will they call the next one the NEW NEW iPHONE?
Apple don't have ANY imagination when it comes to naming things. They go with the first thought even if it is the stupidest.
And about the leaked picture, wow. It's not like everyone has seen the logic board of all the other iPhones so no I dont see whats so good about leaking this pic.
How about a pic of the actual phone that we will see when it gets released. Now thats what people want to see. The new iPhone next to an old iPhone.
leaked pics of the internals are only good to companies like Samsung and LG and Nokia. To the public they are useless as we never see the insides of the phones so they are irreverent to us. That could be a pic of a logic board from the iPhone 3G for all we know.

iPhone 5 is looking good! As far as the holes not matching..... close is good when the parts are only rumors.

is because they ate the same or very similar designs with just upgrades to the hardware of the phone.
If Apple stays true to there naming process then the new iPhone will be called an iPhone 5. That's because it will have a totally different look and hardware spec to the old versions. That gives them the option of adding the "S" to the version after the next one as they usually use a very similar design with mainly hardware changes( CPU, ram, camera etc.)
I personally think they should adopt a naming scheme using such names as the iPhone PRO, next version after that could be called iPhone PRO S. Maybe apple should give the iPhone a more mature, classy and expensive sounding name. In my opinion, iPhone PRO would be better than iPhone 5 or 6. Using numbers by themselves, well lacks imagination!

Love it when my hoes line up. I mean holes :]

You really should read my earlier post I flaw your logic in almost every way.
Also logic boards make sense for a lot of people not me but I know tech people who do like my uncle he said that these were built to hold use more power. Like more battery etc.

I'll but down 5 bucks saying they will call it the "New" iPhone. Here is my reasoning. When they did the make over to the site last year a few small things changed. This is when the "new" iPad came out. But one notably is the urls changed they use to have the products full name in the urls. Example apple.com/store/iphone4S now it's just apple.com/iPhone or iPad. I think they are done with the numbers thing. And the "S" I mean you don't say you have an MacBook pro 12th gen do you?

It's an iPhone 4 and its black or white but its still a iPhone 4.
If the next iPhone is going to be 5 for numerical order then WHERE is the iPhone 2?
The iPhone 4 was the 4th generation, thats why it got its name. The 4S is the 5th generation but they called it 4S instead of a 5.
Again Apple dont have a clue how to name a device and just go at it all stupidly. The next iPhone name wont have any thought to it and will probably be named iPhone 7 or something stupid like that. It might even be the iPhone 2 for all we know?
If they were smart at naming their devices then we wouldn't have 2 iPads named "iPad" It would be iPad and iPad 3.

I hope Apple is leaking FAKE parts so when the legit one hits, everyone will be in awe
