Claimed iPhone 7s parts leak, showing logic board and reiterating reports of A11 chip

Most of the claimed parts leaks to date have been for the iPhone 8, but there are a few photos purporting to be of iPhone 7s components. These include shots of the A11 chip destined for this year’s top-end iPhone, also reported to be used in the 7s.

A logic board photo sent to us by a source tallies with one posted earlier …

Benjamin Geskin tweeted a logic board photo which is an exact match for separate photos we’ve received, and is also consistent with past models.

An A11 chip would give the 7s comparable performance to the iPhone 8, though it may have different specs in terms of other components, like RAM – and the flagship phone will of course have additional features like the expected face recognition and advanced augmented reality system.

The iPhone 7s is expected to be a relatively minor update to the existing iPhone 7, though sharing the all-glass design of the iPhone 8. It has been suggested that this may actually result in the updated phone being slightly thicker than the current model, as the glass will need to be thicker than the current aluminum casing.

While we’ve seen less information on the iPhone 7s, a recent video did compare a dummy model with a similar mockup of the iPhone 8.
