“While incorrect claims came on Monday from a document showing alleged details on a NAND flash chip for Apple’s next iPhone, another questionable schematic from the same source suggests the ‘iPhone 6’ may include a near-field communications chip,” AppleInsider reports.
“Chinese repair firm ‘GeekBar’ shared a picture of the schematic on Monday via the social media site Weibo. It purports to show that a PN65V near-field communications chip from Semiconductors will be included on the ‘iPhone 6,'” AppleInsider reports. “The details seem questionable, as Apple has to date only used Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for short-range wireless communications. Apple currently offers a combination of the two technologies for its own proprietary ‘iBeacon’ standard.”
“The schematic was released on the heels of another document that was originally interpreted to suggest that Apple’s next-generation ‘A8’ processor would come with 1 gigabyte of RAM — the same as the A7 chip found in the iPhone 5s,” AppleInsider reports. “But observers were quick to note that the mention of 1 gigabyte on the schematic was actually in reference to a NAND flash module, representing internal storage instead of RAM.”
