In examining the bare logic boards from the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models, chrmjenkins believes he has spotted where that chip will be located.
The leaks for the iPhone 6 are just getting better and better as the official announcement, scheduled for September 9th gets near. Only a week earlier we all had the chance to look at what the sources were claiming as the schematic of the iPhone 6 which was actually a pinning diagram for the device's rumored near field communications (NFC) chip.
The part PN65V being addressed on the schematic was believed to be a version of NXP's PN65 NFC package which is currently being used in the Android devices. This leak was one of the numerous other schematics which were shared by GeekBar over the past couple of days. The schematics are largely believed to be legitimate however some of the components had been misidentified in the beginning. So considering that there is a wide possibility of these schematics being accurate, we are encouraged to reflect back on the NFC claim to see if there is additional evidence for it.
A forum member chrmjenkins from MacRumors has taken notice of a document which shows the package used by NXP for its PN65, noting that it measures 5 mm x 5 mm with 32 terminals for connectivity. The bare logic boards from the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models were examined by this user and he claims that he knows where the chip is going to be located. Apparently this location which the member is talking about is on the board where there is a square patch which isn’t for any other component from the iPhone 5s logic board. This indicates that there might be a new component here such as the NFC chip.
