Apple’s next iPhone may be the first product to use the company’s rumoured A6 processor, a quad-core chip that will enable noticeably faster performance. 9to5Mac has a leaked image of what is allegedly the next iPhone’s logic board. You can see the A6 processor there. 

But fair warning: 9to5Mac says the “A6” imprint on the chip was revealed after some heavy tweaking in Photoshop, so there’s a good chance it’s not legit.

There’s also a chance Apple will go with the A5X chip in the new iPhone. That’s the same chip the company uses in the iPad.
