Photos of what appear to be the logic board of the iPhone 5S have been posted on Japanese site Moumantai. The logic board shown in the images is nearly identical to the one found in the iPhone 5 except for a few minor changes.
Our favorite Taiwanese supply chain and rumor website that sometimes gets thing right, sometimes gets things wrong, is saying that Apple will release two iPhones this year. One will be a “revised version of the iPhone 5″, which is a fancy way of saying iPhone 5S, and the other will be a “low-cost iPhone model”. Said cheap iPhone will have similar specs to the iPhone 4S, but it’ll have a downgraded screen and processor.
When Apple launched the iPhone 4 with the gorgeous Retina Display at an incredible 326 pixels-per-inch (ppi) in 2010, it blew away competition.
But that was almost three years back and a lot has changed since then. We’re already seeing devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z that come with 440+ ppi displays and have taken the pixel-density crown from Apple.
Corning is the company that makes the glass that sits on top of your iPhone and iPad. They also make the glass that sits on top of Samsung’s Galaxy S4. Due to the fact that the GS4 shipped after the iPhone 5, by quite a few months actually, the GS4 uses Corning’s
new Gorilla Glass 2 technology, whereas the iPhone 5 doesn’t. Just thought I’d throw that out there.
BGR has published high resolution photos of several parts, which it claims are from the next generation iPhone, unofficially dubbed iPhone 5S.
