This week RepairLabshas access to two exclusive iPhone 5 rumors, and as your favorite iPhone repair company, we're bringing them to you.
An inside source at Texas Instruments tells us that they have begun production on the iPhone 5 power management chip. We can also confirm that management inside Texas Instruments is calling the next phone the iPhone 5. Previously when production began on the Apple iPhone's chips at TI, the phone debuted just a few months later. This fits in with our next rumor.
From the same Chinese source that brought us the accurate pictures of the new iPad back housing and new iPad glass, comes the latest rumor that the iPhone 5 will debut in September. According to our source, they have also been told that the screen will indeed be larger than the current 3.5 inch model. Whether it will be as large as the 4.6 inch rumors we have yet to confirm.
While we can confirm the production of the power management chips, which means a new iPhone is imminent, bear in mind that the September release date and screen size are rumors. However, our source has proven extremely reliable in the past.
