iPhone 5 Easier to Repair

By observing the teardown accessories, there’re still some major differences between Apple the new iPhone 5 and the iphone 4S. Here we go and have a look!

Easier Repairing

According to the teardown notes, the iPhone 5 could be the "most repairable iPhone we've seen in a while," which is much easier than the iPhone 4S.


The iPhone 5 is opened front-to-back so "replacing a cracked screen is going to be easier than ever...compare this to the iPhone 4S, where it took 38 steps to isolate the display assembly."

Home Button

IPhone 5 home button assembly has an integrated metal support bracket, strengthening the switch and lessening the chance of wearing out the iphone 4Shome button.

Battery Capacity

The iPhone 5 battery has a higher voltage and slightly larger capacity than the 4S. As following comparisons:

iPhone 5 battery:: 3.8V - 5.45Wh;

iPhone 4S battery:: 3.7V - 5.3Wh;

Samsung Galaxy S III Battery: 3.8V - 7.98Wh.


Of course, the key component is the Apple A6 processor. That is an unique Apple design with preliminary benchmarks showing roughly twice the performance of Apple's A5 chip.

Unibody back

The unibody back resembles the older 3GS iPhone. "The case is reminiscent of the iPhone 3GS, while it maintains the square edges of the iPhone 4. We're having iPhone 3GS flashbacks with the easily accessible display assembly," said iFixit.
