Apple Providing High-Level Game Devs With A5-Based iPhone 4?


9To5Mac has an interesting report today which reveals that some high-level iOS game developers may be receiving iPhone 4 devices with an A5 chipset to test games.

The devices reportedly look exactly like an iPhone 4 from the outside and have been provided to select developers to test their games on next-generation A5 hardware instead of the current A4 chip.

They already have select developers working on versions of their iPhone applications that take full advantage of the next-generation iPhone’s speedier and much more powerful hardware. These developers, seemingly from high-level gaming outfits, have been given what is essentially an iPhone 4 but with an A5 processor instead of an A4.

This new iPhone, being called the “iPhone 4S”, is reportedly kept in a company safe when not in use. This device however is not the next-generation model. Instead, it is custom iPhone used for testing purposes.

Apple is widely expected to introduce the iPhone 5 this summer during WWDC with a fall 2011 release.
