iFixIt commences their iPhone 5 teardown

iFixIt has already commenced their obligatory iPhone 5 teardown. Earlier today we got our first look at the internals of the iPhone 5 but iFixIt is bound to unearth any changes or secrets Apple's buried in their latest flagship device.

The crew over at iFixIt has sent their team down to Australia in order to get their hands on the iPhone 5 before the rest of the world. And as usual, they've already started tearing apart the iPhone 5. They're posting everything live as they delve into the device.

Departing from the iPhone 4 and 4S design, the most significant change is the switch from a rear-opening construction to a front-opening one. This will make screen repairs that much easier whether you plan on doing it yourself or taking it into Apple.
