The processor within the iPhone SE is certainly the similar A9 processor discovered within the iPhone 6s, and the phase within the iPhone SE Chipworks took aside used to be categorized with an APL1022 phase quantity from a TSMC facility. It comprises SK Hynix reminiscence, which Chipworks says is most probably the similar 2GB LPDDR4 DRAM module discovered within the iPhone 6s.
The date codes would possibly if truth be told inform a tale: the decapped software processor chip is dated 1535, Aug/Sep final yr, so it used to be sitting in stock for a whilst; the reminiscence is 1549, remaining December; and most likely the entire package deal-on-package deal used to be assembled this yr on the finish of January.
