What GPS chip is used in the iPhone 5

Thanks for the great teardown review on the iphones 4s and 5. Great work!

From the 4S teardown I learned that for GPS it uses the Broadcom BCM4750IUB8 chip

There was no specific mention of the GPS chip in the iphone 5. Is the same chip used or a different one. If different? What are the differences ;-)



Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The information is extracted from the Qualcomm MDM9615 datasheet.
