Apple Inc's newest smartphone models iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C hit stores on Friday in many countries across the world, including Australia and China. The gadget giant for the first time is selling a second smartphone dubbed "5C" featuring a plastic back and bright colors. The pricier "5S" now comes in three new colors - gray, silver and gold.
Technology firm iFixit disassembled a gold-colored iPhone and examined its parts. Following are some of the key components for the iPhone 5S and their makers that have been identified so far:
Chips from Avago, Skyworks Solutions are featured in the new iPhone. Companies supplying parts for the new phone also include memory chipmaker Hynix and radio-frequency chipmaker Triquint
