Yes, folks, this update is from an iOS developer named Nick Frey, who shared his exciting discovery to 9to5Mac. According to Frey, a reference to an s5l8960x chip was found hidden in a code which he believes is Apple's A7 processor.
Frey noticed that the chip was different from previous Apple processors. For instance, the A6 chip was a s5l8950x and the A6X, on the other hand, came with the s5l8955x reference on it. Given the case, if true, the new chip (A7) will be the main muscle for the next-generation iPhone which many claim to be the iPhone 5S.
It gets more interesting, as Frey also noticed Samsung components within the main SoC. The said components from Samsung are reportedly responsible for giving power to the display. Well, it looks like Apple hasn't really moved to TSMC after all.
