Then again, a select few bought an iPhone just to take it apart.
Mac fan site iFixit sent reporters to New Zealand to get the earliest possible jump on the iPhone release across the time zones, then immediately posted a detailed breakdown of the device's innards. So which semiconductor makers broke new ground inside Apple, and which ones held onto their old spots?
The main processor is an ARM Holdings
Other major components look largely the same, including heaps of Intel
But the big winner in the new iPhone is small-cap chip designer TriQuint
So this release will obviously help Apple and resellers like AT&T
