Apple A7 Chipset For IPhone 5S Photographed In The Wild?

The iPhone 5 should be getting an update soon – the iPhone 5S probably – but what could that update be? The closer we acquire to launch, the more likely it is one of the parts suppliers will let something slip, like the motherboard of the recent 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.

According to the source, the number of Central Processing Units (CPU) cores and amount of Random-Access Memory (RAM) have both been doubled, meaning the A7 chipset packs a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2Giga Hertz (GHz) and 2GB of RAM. The Random-Access Memory (RAM) clockspeed will reportedly hold a hit, though – going from LPDDR2-1066 to LPDDR-800.

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 haged the 4” 640 x 1136 display – that’s not very surprising, given that changing the classy 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 acquire cool recent abilities in iOS 7, but had nothing to share on battery power (more Central Processing Units (CPU) and GPU cores will need to be fed) or any capturing camera upgrades.

The image has been confirmed to be fake. Move along guys, nothing to see here.
