Quickturn Teardown of the Apple iPhone 15 A3090 Smartphone
Moving to the Apple A16 Bionic processor from the A15 processor used in the Apple iPhone 14 impacted the BoM total by $12. IC#13 found on the Main Board appears to be the new UWB U2 module Apple announced would be in all new iPhone 15 models at the Apple launch event. Unlike the UWB U2 module found in the Apple iPhone 15 Pro which we found is supplied by USI, the UWB U2 module in the base iPhone 15 does not have an USI markings on the package, indicating Apple is once again using multiple suppliers for the UWB transceiver. Same RF Transceivers used in the iPhone 14 models, but new slim modem: Qualcomm SDX70M-00. RF Board, side 2, looks like a carbon copy of the iPhone 14 RF Board Side 2. The Rear camera support frame had the largest impact to increasing the non-electronics cost of the iPhone 15 by $21 more than last year.
