Apple’s iOS 6 has yet to be announced, but somehow the folks at 9to5 Mac have managed to get their hands on the beta version which interestingly revealed some details of the upcoming iPhone device. So assuming that their information is accurate and is to be believed, what can we expect in Apple’s upcoming iPhone? Apart from aesthetics which has since been “revealed” to sport a larger 4” display, under the hood the new iPhone is expected to pack a ARM S5L8950X processor which is a step up from the iPhone 4S’ S5L8940X and the S5L8945X on the new iPad.
The chip is apparently still under the A5 moniker although it is not clear if it will be the A6 quad-core chip that many have speculated it would be. The GPU on the new iPhone has also been updated and is called the SGX543RC*, which according to the folks at 9to5 Mac does not technically exist yet which means we are looking at new technology over here. As far as RAM is concerned, iPhone owners can finally breathe a sigh of relief as it has been revealed that the iPhone 5 will be sporting 1GB of RAM.
What about data connectivity? Will the iPhone 5 be LTE enabled like the new iPad? Apparently it is currently running on the same Qualcomm baseband as the new iPad with 4G LTE capabilities, so unless something changes at the last minute, it looks like LTE is a go. A new processor, a new GPU and 1GB of RAM – it certainly sounds like the hardware features that many iOS users have been asking for but can we believe the information? With WWDC coming up next month, hopefully Apple will be revealing some details then so until an official announcement has been made, we suggest taking this information with massive doses of salt.
