Posted on: 03:27 PM IST Apr 16, 2013
Earlier today, the Wall Street Journal was reporting that Foxconn, Apple's trusted manufacturing partner, is stepping up hiring as the production schedule for the iPhone 5S kicks in. The company has added more than 10,000 assembly-line workers per week since late March at their Zhengzhou production facility for iPhones.
And now DroidGator has got hold of images of the 5S's alleged motherboard which features a new processor dubbed A7.
The pictures were sent by a source from Cupertino in California, where Apple's headquarters are located. According to the website, the motherboard of the forthcoming handset matches up to the current iPhone 5 motherboard.
The new model could very well share the same exterior, including the dimensions of the iPhone 5. One thing is going to change for sure and that's the processor. The big news is that the iPhone 5S will have a quad-core processor, according to the images leaked on the site.
The next-gen iPhone will supposedly run iOS 7 at launch and there will be many changes on board. In particular, Siri has gone through major improvements, and the speech engine has been fine tuned to bring more features to the voice assistant. A theory is that Siri will now be able to converse in a number of languages.
