Photo shows purported iPad 3 logic board featuring Apple A5X processor

Apple A5X processor

Alongside the iPad 3, Apple has been expected to introduce its next-generation mobile processor as well. The assumption was that it would be a quad-core A6 chip, naturally following the progression of the A4 chip that shipped in the original iPad, and the A5 chip that was included in the iPad 2. However, if the above image is to be believed, Apple won't be releasing the A6 processor with the iPad 3, and will instead go with the A5X processor. Why the difference? We figure that this matches recent reports that Apple would not be bumping the processor to quad-core in the iPad 3, and would instead ship a faster version of the A5 that has greatly improved graphics power.

iPhone HD leaked again (images!)

iPhone HD inferno

The way that the upcoming and still yet to be announced has been fondled by people who’ve gotten their hands on leaked goods is getting downright ridiculous, because it’s happened again for a third time. The guys over at Taoviet have gotten their hands on a newer version of the iPhone HD that was leaked a month ago by Gizmodo, and we can see some minor (but still nice) improvements. A couple of significant things here. First, the screws at the bottom of the device are gone, so the enclosure looks cleaner. Second, the back of the phone indicates that there may likely be a 16GB model. In the past, the iPhone dropped its low-end, moved the high-end down, and then doubled the high-end. So with the iPhone HD, we were expecting a 32GB model and a 64GB model. Here’s hoping they give us all three.

Last, but certainly not least, they took apart the iPhone and found an Apple-branded processor in there. As we know, the was the first iPhone OS device to rock the Apple A4 custom chip, and it looks like we’ve just confirmed that the next iPhone will as well.
