Next-gen iPhone to have 1Ghz A5 chip CONFIRMED!
iOS 4.3 was released to the public and along with this, 3 new firmwares for the various versions of the next iPad.
Inside each of these firmwares are kernelcache files, one for each device. It appears that Apple also decided to include the kernelcache for the next iPhone (“codemodel”: N94; the iPhone 4 (GSM) is N90, and the iPhone 4 (CDMA) is N92).
After opening it in a hex editor, the processor was quickly found near the very bottom. It reads: S5L8940
There it is in black and white – A5 chip in the next iPhone.
