A few fresh pictures of the iPhone 6 motherboard PCB have leaked from French website. The PCB is bigger than the one on the iPhone 5s, hinting at the larger size and the screw slots align with the earlier leaked case designs.
But the crucial function here is that the motherboard has an NFC chip on it, along with Wi-Fi 802.11ac. The NFC feature has been rumored to appear on the iPhone for years now, but it’s never pretty materialized.
Its presence on the iPhone 6 motherboard does not quite guarantee it will be on the genuine phone, but then again, Apple does not use off the shelf parts so if it’s there it’s there for a reason.
