A fresh leak from hardcore Apple fans has given us our first look at the chipset for the upcoming iPhone 7.
The A10 processor has been snagged and snapped by Chinese repairs firm Geekbar, which has a strong track record when it comes to parts leaks.
While the chipset itself doesn’t give much away, it does appear to have been made in June, tying in with reports about when Apple began production on its new handset.
The A10 chip will be cornerstone of the iPhone 7, offering faster speeds and improved battery life.
It’s likely Apple will play up its significance when it launches its new iPhone, largely because there will be no major design changes to the device.
The iPhone 7 is due to launch at a special event at the start of September, with September 9th said to be the date to pencil in for pre-orders.
