Pictures allegedly show the Apple iPhone 7 motherboard
New photos allegedly show the Apple iPhone 7 motherboard. The handset is expected to contain the A10 chipset along with the M10 coprocessor. 2GB of LPDDR4 RAM is also believed to be on board. The A10 is not marked, and has been found in past models right next to the SIM card slot. On the iPhone 7, it appears that another chip has been placed in between the A10 and the SIM slot. TSMC is rumored to be responsible for 100% of the A10 chips that Apple will use on its iOS devices this year. Last year, both TSMC and Samsung produced the A9 chipset.

An earlier rumor that has been repeated a few times states that Intel's 7360 LTE modem chip will be found on 50% of the units that Apple ships this year. The remaining 50% would come from the current supplier, Qualcomm. Intel is hoping that it eventually lands a contract to produce the chipset used on the iPhone.

Apple is expected to introduce the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus next month. There have been rumors about a third model, the Apple iPhone Pro. However, reliable tipster Evan Blass has said that there will be only two new iPhone models released this year.

You should expect a flood of leaks as we get closer to the unveiling of the new iPhone models. We would suggest that you do take this story with a grain of salt.
