iPhone 5S prototype reveals A7 chip and dual-LED flash

MacRumors was able to grab leaked photos of what looks to be the next iPhone, reportedly dubbed as the iPhone 5S. Perhaps the most interesting image is the one showing the main chip of the iPhone 5S, which does not have an A-series identification printed on it.

A closer look at the image reveals the APL0698 model number. If we'll compare this number to the iPhone 5's A6 chip (APL0598), you'll notice the slight increment in the second number. MacRumors notes that this could be an A7 chip.

Additionally, date codes on the chip also indicate that it was manufactured in October last year. We're referring to the 1239 date code which represents September 3, 2012. Another interesting code is the K1A0062 identifier.

The folks over at Chipworks are saying that previous Apple chips typically had the letter "N" which refers to Samsung, a long-time chip supplier for Apple. The change from N to K, according to Dick James and Jim Morrison of Chipworks, has something to do with Apple's decision to dump Samsung in favor of TSMC.

This is interesting, considering DigiTimes's report yesterday that Apple and TSMC already tied the knot

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
