Sonny Dickson, known for his accurate leaks of iPhone and iPad parts, is back to fluster faces at Apple today with newly released images of the logic board from an iPhone 6, complete with an NFC chip made by NXP, as previously reported. Courtesy of Feld&Volk, the leaked photos show several additional chips on the iPhone 6’s logic board besides NFC, including the AVAGO chip and Apple’s A8 processor, which is supposed to be 2.0 GHz, quite a bit faster than the 1.3GHz A7 chip.

The images displaying two logic boards compare the iPhone 5s motherboard (left) to the iPhone 6 motherboard (right). There is a clear difference in content and size, with the iPhone 6 logic board having a sideways extension.





While there is always a chance these images are inaccurate, Dickson has quite a reputation of being accurate in past leaks, so this may very well be an reliable preview of what we’ll see come out of Cupertino on September 9th.

What do you think of these leaks? Will the iPhone 6 finally have NFC? Let us know in the comments!

    iPhone 6 here we come i can’t wait to see my iPhone 4 its really making me want the iPhone 6 just because the iPhone is soooooooo out of date

    • Sloth

      your fault

    • jalexcarter

      Any phone that’s 4 years old is out of date no matter who made it duh. Upgrading every 2 years isn’t bad, definitely getting this beastly iPhone 6 though can’t wait

  • Marly Marl

    Everything starts leaking Just as the event date is confirmed

    • Have you been living under a rock? Things have been leaking since a few months after the 5S was released…

      • Marly Marl

        Yes they have, but not as strong with good sources since a day ago

  • Juan Genao

    I’m thinking all these leaked pictures are from Apple. They leak a couple a pictures a day and build excitement.

    • Jonathan

      Apple would never do such a thing. They always (try) to do everything behind closed, (not to mention dead bolted) doors.

      • @dongiuj

        Yes they would.

      • jalexcarter

        Yeah but that implies that the parts in the iPhone are actually something to get a hard on about which they don’t seem to be if it’s still rocking 1 GB of RAM, digital image stabilization instead of optical, non stereo speakers, and a slightly faster processor. Spec wise this phone probably won’t impress people but Apple relies on design and their software to pick up the slack where their hardware falls behind. All in all a great phone.

      • @dongiuj

        No, it means that some people are easily receiving hardons over pictures of parts of an electrical device. Sad. And apple needs these people to make its presentation events look good but with cued cheers and applause.
        But getting back to the original comment. Apple leak parts IMO. They need to as they lost customers. Yes, they have gained customers too. They keep customers who are the “I get a hardon over electrical part’s photos” people.
        I just came here to see what apple’s plans are for its late entry into the phone with NFC on board business.

      • Simon

        Well, they do! like any other business! they leaking pictures of prototypes, etc. to see if the “demand” is big enough and it will start speculation. What then happens is that their accounting department logs the period from their leaks and analyze whether their shares go up in value. (Then they have succeeded). So in the end it’s all just about money!

    • AppleFanboy

      The leaks will give the keynote a feel of disappointment due to lack of any surprises.

      • You’d be surprised at how cheerful the guests would be regardless of what is shown on stage…I think that’s part of Apple marketing; hire cheerful noise makers for the keynotes…

      • @dongiuj

        Well said. Exactly what I have always thought from day one of the iPhone. It all sounds so fake.

    Time to be called stupid…
    What does NFC actually do?

    • AppleFanboy

      Radio communication between devices when they get into proximity with each other. Primarly used for file transfer and mobile payments but I’m guessing Apple will focus on the mobile payments part.

      • Jonathan

        Ah cool! And I agree, they’ve already kinda done the first part, with AirDrop.

  • Matt

    I don’t really care about NFC, anyone see that phosphorus chip?

  • Jason B

    Interesting you guys mention the AVAGO chips, but don’t describe what they do. So far, I haven’t been able to pull anything up on them. Based on that fact, my guess is that it’s an application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) for Apple…

    My guess would be some type of RF amplifier (they seem to have a lot of those types of parts), possibly for cellular or wifi, so nothing really that interesting.

  • JayDee917

    AirDrop will probably remain their sharing tech, but NFC will probably be used exclusively for mobile payment.

    • Gary LE

      Does that mean we can use an app from our phone to pay instead of a CC?

      • Thoughts

        Yes it does, PayWave at the moment with my iPhone 5 means having a chip inside my case to work.

  • Senith Deelaka Ranchagoda

    Anyone know what those 2 AVAGO chips do?
