iPhone 5 to get A5 Chip

Written by Nick Farell

Dual core in a phone
The latest update to its iOS operating system appears to have some interesting coding which seems to indicate that the iPhone 5 will come with a dual core A5 chip.

Buried in the code was signs that Apple is testing dual-core processors in the next version of the iPhone. While it is know that the iPad 2 is the first iOS device to ship with the A5, history suggests that the chip was likely to head into the iPhone5 as well.

Of course there was no way to prove this, until  Chronic Dev group member Chronic, iOS developer Filippo Bigarella  found mention of "N94AP" in the update. This is an Apple code name for a yet-to-be-released iPhone. The software then linked N94AP with another codename "S5L8940," which is the A5.

While this could mean that iPhone5  will sport a dual-core processor it could also mean that Apple wanted to test the two things together. Still it does bode well for the idea of a smartphone with a dual core processor.

***** BREAKING NEWS *****

The iPhone 5 might come with a touch screen.

Oh wait, isn't it obvious that in the middle of 2011 it didn't come with this?

Come on Fudzilla, dual core in a phone at the high-end of the market in 2H 2011 is not exactly the surprise you are making it out to be.

I hope they make something revolutionary not just dual core CPU like the ipad 2 !

Sadly it won't be revolutionary, anything that is truly special will have to be at 28nm and iPhone 5 will be far too early for that.

Roll on iPhone 6 for a quad-core CPU with a GPU that can render real life in real time!

If it doesn't come out with a dual core that will be the funny. Tegra 3 (quad core android phones ) and quad qualcomm chips will be out Q4 2011 and Q1 2012 respectively.
Tegra 3 tabs will be out soon as well.
