Next-gen iPhone logic board hints at redesign, larger processor

Rearranges chip, circuitry layouts

A Japanese parts company, Moumantai, says it has obtained a logic board for Apple's next-generation iPhone, commonly expected to be called the iPhone 5S. The board is similar in design to the one for the iPhone 5, but shows some significant differences in the layout of its chips, circuitry, and holes. While no chips are actually attached, the space for the main processor hints that Apple's next A-series chip will be larger than the A6, which is currently used in the iPhone 5.

One or more new iPhones are expected to ship in the fall. The new logic board could in theory be intended for a low-cost iPhone, but Moumantai specifically suggests that the part is for a 5S. A low-cost iPhone would also, presumably, use a less powerful -- and hence smaller -- processor.
