Earlier iPhone 5S announced and goes on sale in Australia today. The guys at iFixit got the unit and they begun the teardown of the latest iPhone – iPhone 5S and let us know what’s inside in it. Below you can see the images of the device.
One of the major changes compared to the iPhone 5 is a cable at the bottom of the display (on the inside) that connects the Touch ID sensor in the home button to the Lightning port assembly. iFixit says this adds a small element of danger to disassembling the handset, because if you pull too hard you could accidentally damage the cable.
The battery, they’ve found is a 3.8V-5.92Wh-1560mAh unit, made by Deasy Battery Co., Ltd in Huizhou, China. It’s a bit bigger than the one in the iPhone 5, which was 3.8V-5.45Wh-1440mAh. Not too bad and confirms Apple’s marketing of the new iPhone 5s.
iSight camera came out fairly easily and the iFixit team says it’s consistent with the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S camera manufacturing markings, which means this is probably a Sony part.
