It would appear that the image of a small piece of an iPhone 5S motherboard has just surfaced online. Unfortunately, however, the leaked component doesn’t provide any hints as to what we can expect from the forthcoming seventh-generation iPhone handset.

The image, reproduced above and spotted first by Nowherelse.fr, corresponds to a small section of the iPhone 5′s motherboard, like so:

The bigger picture.

As you can see, the recent find is certainly no large section of the iPhone 5S motherboard, and as such despite analysis it would appear that the leaked component can’t tell us much about the upcoming smartphone.

Recent rumors surrounding the iPhone 5S have concerned the smartphone’s camera. Particularly, it is anticipated that Apple will seek to improve the iPhone’s camera performance in low-light conditions, especially since smartphone competitors such as the HTC One and the upcoming Nokia Lumia 928 appear to cope far better than the iPhone 5 when shooting images and recording video in the dark.

Apple is expected to launch the forthcoming handset at its annual fall event. We’ll keep you updated with further information on the iPhone 5S as we receive it.
