Following recent part leaks and schematics revealing supposed details about Apple’s next iPhone, 9to5Mac claims to have gotten their hands on an internal beta version of iOS 6, which seems to reveal details about the hardware in Apple’s upcoming iPhone.
The site claims to have found details buried deep within the iOS 6 beta, revealing that the next iPhone will feature a Samsung 5L8950X ARM processor that Apple will brand as a variant of the A5. The processor is expected to be an upgrade from what it found in the latest iPad.
Details about the graphics chip in the next iPhone were also reported, although the chip that was referenced doesn’t seem to officially exist at this point, suggesting that it is an as yet unreleased chipset that Apple is testing with in advance. The report also notes that the next iPhone will feature 1GB of RAM, as well as support for 4G LTE data speeds, which Apple recently added to the new iPad.
Also interesting is that the report claims that Apple is preparing to release another all-new app in addition to the new 3D-enable Maps app that has already been leaked. Assuming that 9to5Mac’s information is accurate, and combining their report with previous leaked info, the once-foggy picture of Apple’s next iPhone appears to be clearer than ever.
Of course, it’s entirely possible that significant changes could be made before the next iPhone is released, and before iOS 6 is officially unveiled. Even so, it seems that Apple’s next iPhone may be further along than many people previously suspected.
