With no new Apple iPhone being released in July for the first time in years, the internet has been rife with rumours trying to make sense of Apple’s break from tradition.
The most prominent of which concerns the iPhone 5’s snappy processor. According to Techradar, the rumoured dual core A5 processor is causing the next generation iPhone to overheat.
With claims of Apple’s new iPhone being even slimmer than its 9.3mm ancestor, overheating seems to be a problem they’re likely to encounter.
With hardware being packed tighter together, cooling down the chipset becomes more challenging. And let’s not forget that the new iPhone is rumoured to run a second core, which would produce more heat than its current equivalent.
Apparently Apple is struggling to find a solution and may be considering setting the phone’s release date back a second time, from the rumoured September date to an unknown date in 2012.
