iPhone 5 confirmed to have a dual core processor

While this isn’t much of a surprise – the iPad 2 was announced to run on Apple’s new A5 dual-core processor, it was expected that the next generation iPhone (and other iOS devices) will be making use of it as well. Some folks have done some digging with the iOS 4.3 source code and found a reference to the iPhone 5′s processor: S5L8940, which is the same as the iPad 2′s processor. This confirms that the iPhone 5 will have the same dual-core processor found on the iPad 2. Unless of course Apple decides to make some last minute changes, which would be pretty unlikely. What do you think about the dual-core processor on the iPhone 5 – is it a necessary addition?
