Say goodbye to the old design
Apple’s next-generation iPhone is no doubt on the way. We’ve already seen backplates said to be part of Apple’s next handset. We’ve even seen video of what may be the front panel. Still, it’s not entirely clear whether any of this stuff is legit.
Either way, 9to5Mac obtained a beta version of iOS 6. They noticed that the processor is an ARM S5L8950X.
Here’s some info they picked up by diving into the software:
Darwin Kernel Version 13.0.0: XXX May XX XX:XX:XX PDT 2012; root:xnu-21XX.X.XXX/DEVELOPMENT_ARM_S5L8950X
They explain that the processor in the next iPhone is some variation of the A5, and internally Apple is calling it the A5-***, (note: 9to5Mac explains that they removed the last three characters in order to protect their source). That said, they speculate that it won’t be a jump to the A6 for Apple with this iPhone.
The GPU is called SGX543RC* (again, they blocked the last number in order to protect their source).
Other bits of information include 1GB of RAM for the new handset.
