With the official release of iOS 4.3 today, Chronic-Dev Team member, @chronic has been digging deep into the code and has found some new details regarding the next-generation iPhone.

Looking deeper into the iOS 4.3 code reveals that the next-generation iPhone 5 will sport the same dual-core Apple A5 processor as the upcoming iPad 2. The devs have found references to a device with the model number N94AP, which supposedly is the next-generation iPhone 5. Taking a look inside the N94AP kernel reveals the model number “S5L8940“, which happens to be the same model number as the A5 processor chip inside the iPad 2

iPad2,1 (K93AP) = WiFi.

iPad2,2 (K94AP) = GSM.

iPad2,3 (K95AP) = CDMA.

The A5 Processor, is called a ‘S5L8940′

Although this isn’t the first time we’ve heard that the iPhone 5 will include a dual-core processor, it’s good to see some additional evidence confirming the rumors.

Now that we can check that off on our list, lets see if we get that larger 4-inch display, increased storage capacity, or completely redesigned body in the next-generation iPhone.

What do you think?

    Larger screen would be nice. I’ve been using the gestures in the 4.3 GM and they’re really good. They can be better I’d the screen was bigger.

    So then why would the iPhone 5 be supported in iOS 4.3?? unless that means we will not be seing iOS 5 this year, or at least on the iPhone 5…

      I wouldn’t call you a moron, but it wasn’t the brightest post on this site, did you stop and think that a prototype of the iPhone 5 is running 4.3 or to get iOS5 you need to start at 4.3 and work up. In doing so why post coding in the later firmware when you can just do it now and then work out the bugs from the “base” not the “ceiling”

  • Caveboy

    I’m sure there r several prototypes of the iPhone 5 out there and seeing as ios 5 is a work in progress the current version of ios 4.3 would need to support all new iPhones including the new prototypes including dual core iPhone 5

    OMG THE CHRONIC DEV TEAM FIGURED SOMETHING NEW. THE IPHONE 5 WILL HAVE A DUAL CORE LIKE THE IPAD. COULDN’T GUESS THAT ONE, BEING THAT THE IPAD HAD THE A4 CHIP LIKE THE IPHONE 4. HOW THEY FIGURE THIS ONE OUT. WHAT A JOKE THEY ARE.
