“A new photo of questionable quality purports to show a new system on a chip for Apple’s next iPhone labeled ‘A6,'” Sam Oliver reports for AppleInsider.
“The latest alleged part leak was posted online on Wednesday by Sonny Dickson, with a picture claiming to show the logic board of the new iPhone with a processor named A6,” Oliver reports. “If accurate, the naming suggests that the new processor would be a generational upgrade from the A5 chip found in the iPhone 4S, as well as the A5X chip with upgraded graphics that Apple included in the third-generation iPad.”
Oliver reports, “While the image posted Thursday shows a logic board that matches up with previous photos posted online, the quality of the image itself is so low that the picture could easily have been faked.”

MacDailyNews Take: These “leaked” photographs always seem to have one thing in common – they’re taken by utterly incompetent photographers with the absolute worst cameras in the world. Is this 2012 or 1912?
It’s strange for those who claim to have access to advanced, unreleased high tech to be unable to take a simple, clear photograph when even below-average camera-phones are perfectly capable of automatically doing so nowadays. We know, we know, the security team was right around the corner and it had to be a quick shot and they almost didn’t get the shot and nearly got caught, but they did manage to snap one shot, and blah, blah, blah.
