iphone 5c logic board 640x413

Apple might be less than two days away from unveiling its brand new iPhones, that doesn’t mean the leaks and rumors are going to stop. Earlier today we picked up on a purported iPhone 5S box that hints at the possibility of it having a fingerprint scanner. Apple is also expected to unveil the iPhone 5C this year, its first ever budget smartphone. The alleged logic board of iPhone 5C has leaked online, it sports minor changes as opposed to the iPhone 5 logic board. iPhone 5C’s internals are expected to be quite similar to the existing iPhone.

Since much of the logic board pictured here is covered by protective EMI cover, the internal circuitry is almost completely hidden. The accelerometer is thought to be repositioned or hidden beneath five connection points used for the speakers, microphone, display and other components. The area where the chip is located on iPhone 5 is said to be identical on this purported iPhone 5C logic board, this isn’t much of a surprise, since Apple is expected to go with the same processor so as to reduce build cost. Apart from these subtle tweaks, not much can be gathered about the upcoming budget iPhone from this part. The new iPhones are expected to be released on September 20th after the announcement on September 10th. [Image via Weibo]
