Is this our first glimpse at iPhone 7 motherboard?

iPhone 7 motherboard leak 001

The same source that posted images allegedly showing a claimed iPhone 7 chassis alongside a bunch of SIM trays in Apple Watch-like Space Black finish has now re-published a new photo that seems to picture iPhone 7 logic boards, obtained from Ming Technology on Weibo. Prolific leakster Steve Hemmerstoffer also posted his own iPhone 7 motherboard images.

GeekBar also posted their own photos of the iPhone 7 motherboard.

GeekBar is the same Chinese repair shop that posted photos and a 25-second vide showing off a supposedly working iPhone 7 prototype running Apple’s internal testing software and the stock Camera app.

Little, if anything, can be gleaned from these photos because it’s a bare logic board without any chips on it. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus should run an Apple-designed ‘A10’ system-on-a-chip produced using TSMC’s cutting-edge ten-nanometer manufacturing process that should result in faster graphics and processing power and lower power consumption.

The logic board’s layout closely matches that of prior iPhone models. And if what we’re seeing is the real deal, then the iPhone 7 won’t have a dual-SIM system as previously rumored because the photo clearly shows a space for a single SIM tray.
