Following the introduction of the highly anticipated iPhone 5 for almost two weeks, there are still many mysteries to solve, such as knowing who is responsible for making some of the internal components of this wonderful smartphone as the or its new A6 processor.

Since last September 21 in some countries began to distribute the to those who had booked, and among them were some of the leading analysts of gadgets as “iFixit”, who already showed us inside the iPhone 5 . But one of these smartphones also fell into the hands of Chipworks , and they told us all about the new mobile cameras Apple.

But the second reason is perhaps the most important, and not only is that has the technology needed to develop a camera as spectacular as incorporating the new iPhone, but also has the capacity to meet the demand for components by Apple, ie taking into account the millions of iPhones to be sold in the coming months, it takes the same amount of millions of components, and only a company as big as Sony could supply them.
