What's Inside The iPhone 5? (VIDEO)

What's inside an iPhone 5?

Luckily you don't have to take one apart yourself to find out. The tech website iFixit has just released its annual look at the guts of Apple's latest device, and it's a pretty interesting read (depending on where you fall on the nerd scale).

Despite Apple usually being reluctant to make its products easily repairable at the expense of design quality, iFixit's experts say the new phone is not as obtuse as previous versions.

It says the case is easier to open, the battery is not as difficult to replace and the Home button is supported in a metal case which should stop it wearing out as often.

The phone also has a pop-out ear speaker, a 28nm Qualcomm MFM9615 chip to handle its LTE connectivity, and a light metal case.
