Picture of alleged Apple iPhone 5S motherboard shows A7 processor

0. phoneArena posted on 15 Apr 2013, 10:07

A person who allegedly works for Apple has taken a snapshot of what is supposedly the motherboard for the Apple iPhone 5S and there are quite a few Apple fans who are hoping that this is true because thetipster says to expect a quad-core A7 processor and 2GB of RAM on the device; the sender's IP comes back to Cupertino so there could be some truth to this...

I wonder, how many people here still care about Apple products? It just a bump up specs with same old designs again :(

If I thought a companies design was perfect and they kept releasing that phone with better internals, I might just buy it every time. I also might get bored of it after awhile. Of course, the iPhones design is not so good IMO and the OS is a bit too simple but if they re-released the G-nex with better internals I'd buy it.

At least one person does - the one who Photo-chopped the pic of an iP5 motherboard to show an A7 CPU.... Plus all of us who read this article. :-)

Design has to be change and OS look. but hardware-wise looks great. let see what apple bring out on their event.

It will look like it's sibling, the iPhone 5.

And here we go again......
The biggest thing to happen to iPhone since iPhone.......

Apple will never change their old boring design!

Apple is way slow to catch up to Android specs. Quad core this year from Apple really?. If i recall it took them forever to bump it the screen size to 4.0 inches alone so there's no way they would jump into the quad core game this early or not for a very long time.Maybe the 2GB of ram but still Apple is so slow to care about the competition these days.

Apple is actually ahead of the game when it comes to specs and internals usually. The CPUs are usually more than enough to handle tasks on the phone and the GPUs are generally 1 year ahead of most android devices out there. PowerVR are probably some of the best GPUs on the market and the S4 is now using what their last phone had (although higher clock speed). The GPU mentioned in this rumor is absolute monster and can kill anything thrown at it. It's in the new iPad now which pushes way more pixels than a phone will.

(I'm an android fan for what it's worth)

^^ +1.... With a dual core 1.2 and 1 gig of ram, the iphone 5 still gives the android powerhouses a run for their money. If they are upgrading to a quad core and 2 gigs of ram, I think it will be one of the fastest and the best gaming smartphone....

cpu alone wont make it gaming powerhouse...SGX554MP4 gpu will make it best pixel crunching soc.

Too bad the rumors are pointing to the same lame design. The current processing power is more then enough. Apple as become that company that just throws better specs at a product and calls it new. Its too bad =(

I'll say it again... 2013 is going to be a bad year for Apple if they dont do something new with ts iOS and physical apperance of the iPhone. I think Apple iPhone customers are getting bored of the same old and they are starting to relize that an upgrade to the latest is just not worth the $.

Come on Apple... I'm waiting for something awesome! I have faith you can pull t off. Dont let me down..lol

The design is still so far beyond what the competitors are doing. It's borderline fashion/art the iphone. I love how it is metal/two tone/ slim. Only HTC is close. They would be alot closer if they could tidy up the lines and get rid of the hideous speakers. Samsung is delivering awesomeness but they can't compete on the looks front.

ios is most likely in line for an update and i'm excited for that.

BTW apple clearly isn't going a7 cortex. I know its been updated but it's hilarious how obviously wrong this article is. Then again of course its going to be called A7.

That GPU is promising for that device. The same GPU as the iPad4 but wait, was it the Adreno 330 who beats the iPad4 at GPU benchmarks?

Nice, the Power VR SGX544MP4 is easily the fastest GPU currently on the market (Don't know about the Tegra 4 or the Adreno 330), but a Quad core processor and 2GB of ram? The iPhone always was rocket fast with just a Dual core processor (or even single core), hopefully that means that iOS 7 is going to be more than just an app drawer! Even if the 5S retains the same design as the 5, at least they kept a really gorgeous design (unlike the S3 and the S4) or switched for something uglier (Like going from the S2 to the S3). 2GB of RAM is going to be great for jailbreak users! But i really hope for something big for iOS7 oltherwise, i'll get the HTC One (i'll probably get the One anyway!).
