iOS 4.3 Code Suggests iPhone 5 Will Have A5 Processor

According to a report by iClarified, recent discoveries within the iOS 4.3 firmware suggest that the upcoming iPhone 5 will likely feature the same dual-core A5 processor found in the iPad 2. This revelation aligns with previous trends, as the iPhone 4 was introduced with the same A4 processor that the original iPad utilized.

Evidence found within the iOS 4.3 firmware supports this expectation.

Performance benchmarks for the iPad 2 have shown improvements of more than 150 percent over its predecessor. It is anticipated that the iPhone 5 will exhibit similar enhancements in processing power, potentially surpassing the performance of the original iPad.

While the actual user experience in terms of speed remains to be seen, initial reviews of the iPad 2 have indicated that it feels significantly faster, at least doubling the speed of its predecessor.
