Another peek inside the iPhone 6s… and the iPhone 7s?

iPhone 6s Specs

If an earlier report is correct — and based on the source’s track record, it almost certainly is — Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are less than a month away from being unveiled. Apple may have as many as eight new products to show off on stage during its next press conference in early September, but the stars of the show will be the company’s new iPhones, without question.

A steady flow of leaks has painted a fairly clear picture of Apple’s next-generation iPhone lineup, with the most recent report having been a potential bombshell: supposed benchmark test results for the iPhone 6s show huge performance improvements compared to last year’s model.

Now, we have yet another potential leak to toss into the mix.

A new report from Digitimes may give us another peek inside Apple’s upcoming new iPhone 6s ahead of its release next month. The Taiwan-based news site has a mixed track record when it comes to revealing companies’ plans, but its sources inside chip makers have often been accurate in the past.

According to the report, Apple’s new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s will continue to use Qualcomm modems for connectivity. The report states that Qualcomm will supply Apple with 100% of the modem chips that will be used in the upcoming new iPhones, contradicting an earlier note from an analyst at Northland Capital Markets, who claimed Intel had won partial production of the next-gen iPhone’s modem chips.

Digitimes states that the Qualcomm modems that are being used in Apple’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are 20nm chips, and they are being fabricated in partnership with TSMC. Interestingly, however, the report claims that Intel could be awarded partial modem orders for 2017’s iPhone models — presumably the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus — as Apple looks to further diversify its supply chain.

In the meantime, Apple’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are expected to launch on September 18th this year, following their unveiling on September 9th.
