iPhone 5 is easier to repair than previous iPhones

The iPhone 5 was launched recently, and it came with a bunch of new features. While the phone’s design wasn’t revolutionary, it looks quite different from its predecessors, the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S, owing to the use of a larger screen and the absence of a glass panel at the back.

According to iFixit, the iPhone 5 is much easier to repair than Apple’s previous devices.As per a guide published by iFixit, the biggest issues with manually repairing an iPhone 5 are Apple’s proprietary screws used to keep the device together, and many intricate parts located near the dock that make fixing individual parts dicey.

All things considered, the iPhone 5’s front-to-back construction makes accessing the insides of the device very easy, as the screen is the first thing to come out when disassembling the phone.
