“As some of you might know, back in March, a new rumor claimed that when designing the iPhone 6s, Apple will go the Watch route by adopting the SiP (System in Package) architecture,” Vlad Andrici reports for G For Games.
“According to the originator of the schematics, it looks like Apple has indeed chosen to go the SiP route, with the A9 SoC integrating the power management and the baseband chip,” Andrici reports. “Overall, it is being said that other chips as well are integrated into ‘packages,’ with the motherboard’s components looking somewhat simplified.”
Andrici reports, “It’s also being claimed that the area occupied by the A9 chipset is by 15% smaller than the space occupied by the Apple A8 SoC and that the iPhone 6s will come in 16, 64 and 128GB versions.”
