iFixit Begins Teardown of Gold iPhone 5s [PICS]

The iFixit team again has travelled down to Australia to be the first to teardown the iPhone 5s. They didn’t get to it ‘first’, but their teardowns always have the best pictures and witty comments to go along while they rip things apart.



So far, nothing major to report other than the new slightly larger battery is stuck on with lots of glue and taking the Touch ID fingerprint sensor off the Home button was tricky.

Update: the teardown is complete–here’s their video overview:
