The gang at iFixit has torn down the A6 processor found in the iPhone 5.
“The stuff you’ll see in the Apple A6 teardown is the kind of thing that’s usually done behind closed doors, in some super-secret facility buried six miles beneath the Earth’s surface,” they say. “But not today. Today, Chipworks has agreed to let the common nerd (us!) into their lab and show off some of their high-tech gizmos — all the while delving deeper into Apple’s A6 processor and other chips we discovered in last week’s iPhone 5 teardown. This time there’s no repairability score; it’s all fun and games. Join us in our journey of discovery… through science!
