New iPhone 5S Photos: Dual-LED Flash, 1GB RAM, A7 Chip





New photos allegedly of the iPhone 5S clearly shows it's internal components, a dual-LED flash, and possibly a new A7 chip, reports MacRumors. The site received the photos below as follow up to photos previously posted which showed the interior and rear exterior of the upcoming device.

As seen in one photo, the chip carries an Apple model number of APL0698, suggesting that this is indeed intended to be branded as an A7 chip rather than a modification on the A6 chip found in the iPhone 5. The original A6 chip carried a model number of APL0598, with the A6X found in the fourth-generation iPad carrying an APL5598 model number, demonstrating how Apple varies the first digit for members of a given A-series family and increments the second digit when transitioning to a new family.

Other features noticeable include 1GB of Elpida DRAM, a dual-LED flash, and a main chip identifier of K1A0062. Previous chips had a number that started with N. It's suggested that perhaps this chip was produced by TSMC instead of Samsung.

MacRumors was also able to determine that the device was assembled in December 2012 making it a very early prototype.

Apple is expected to release the iPhone 5S this fall.

Take a look at the photos below for more details!

First benchmark results for the New Mac Pro



MacRumors reports that early benchmarks for the new Mac Pro have begun appearing in Geekbench.

The entry is appearing as "AAPLJ90,1" as opposed to the expected MacPro6,1. It scores 23901 overall. That's greater than the top scoring Mac Pro (Mid 2012) that scored 21980.

Supporting the authenticity of the entry is the listing of a custom build of OS X Mavericks, 13A2054, running on the machine. The listed motherboard ID is also one which was discovered in OS X Mavericks as corresponding to the new Mac Pro. The machine in question is running a single 12-core processor from the upcoming Ivy Bridge-E family, specifically the Xeon E5-2697 v2 running at 2.7 GHz. It is also equipped with 64 GB of RAM.

Take a look at the comparison chart below:

You Can Update to iOS 7 Without a Registered iPhone UDID



It's currently possible update to iOS 7 beta without having your iPhone's UDID registered in an Apple developer account.

We have tested and confirmed it working on the iPhone 4S, a brand new iPhone 5 and an additional iPhone 5.

To perform the update you must get a hold of the iOS 7 ipsw, press and hold the Option key (Shift for Windows) and click Update in iTunes. Select the iOS 7 ipsw from the popup window to install.

It's unclear why this is working. Only iPhone devices registered by developers are supposed to be able to install beta firmware. Perhaps Apple took down this check since its servers are being flooded at the moment.
