iPhone 5c internals and Apple A6 gallery

An in-depth look at the iPhone 5c and the A6: from components to chipsets to comparing it to the A7

We've already given you a look at the inside of the iPhone 5s and the A7 chipset so we figured we'd give them iPhone 5c the same treatment. For the most part, a lot of the components are the same as the iPhone 5c's predecessor, the iPhone 5. However, there are some subtle differences on both the inside and on the logic board itself. Let's take a closer look!

  • Just as with the iPhone 5s, the iPhone 5c's flash for the rear camera is now located on the volume/mute cable assembly instead of the actual rear facing camera
  • The front facing camera assembly is held down with some tape which means you'll need to use caution when removing the rear shield or replacing the front facing FaceTime camera
  • The Home button assembly for the most part remains the same but the contact points where it meets the dock assembly have been revised slightly
  • Most interconnector cables are gone, a welcome change since they broke so easily. This is also the case with the iPhone 5s
