iPad 2 review: iOS 4.3 Reveals iPhone 5 Will Get iPad 2′s Dual-Core A5 Processor

When Apple revealed that iPad 2 will get the new dual-core 1GHz A5 processor, we assumed that it will be coming to iPhone 5 when it is released this summer.

Twitter users @chronic, @FilippoBiga and @naynee75 have discovered references in iOS 4.3 that was released earlier today, which provides more evidence that Apple’s next generation iPhone will get the new dual-core A5 processor. This was revealed via the following tweets:

chronic: alright, someone take this info down. iPad2,1 (K93AP) = WiFi. iPad2,2 (K94AP) = GSM. iPad2,3 (K95AP) = CDMA. all run on the S5L8940 proc.

FilippoBiggo: @chronic you forgot iPhone 5, N94AP, S5L8940.

naynee75: @FilippoBiga http://twitpic.com/47wjfs – iPhone 5 may be running on the A5 Dual Core Processor! #iPhone #iOS Check IMG!

As you can see from the screenshot of one of the system files reveals that iPhone 5 (model number – N94AP) will also get the same dual-core S5L8940 processor like iPad 2.
