Following our award-winning article last January , I thought it might be
time to have another repair "smackdown," courtesy of
Kyle Wiens and the iFixit repair gurus. But what could we do that would equal
our previous smackdown of tablet computers?
Fortunately, Apple announced not one but two new iPhones just in time for iFixit
to strip them down and for us to morph this into a new "Repairability Smackdown" article
for IEEE Consumer Electronics Magazine. In addition to the expert disassembly
work illustrated in this article, you will also find world-class punning and
several new advanced theories on what the "s" and "c" letters in Apple's product
numbering scheme stand for.
