iFixit takes you on the tour of every iPhone teardown performed in the last 10 years

11 January 2017 2

Everyone is commemorating the first iPhone that came in 2007 and made a revolutionary change in the mobile industry. Some of us have witnessed drastic changes in the smartphones industry and Original iPhone is one such contribution to this market that opened new hopes for other smartphone manufacturers.

The idea began from a less bullish iPhone as the makers weren’t sure if this would bring any kind of success to them or not. Phil Schiller, Senior VP of marketing, Apple shares when this incredible journey began, how they achieved it and what they expect from the iPhones in near future. Tony Fadell also shares an inside story on why they ditched the click-wheel prototype for the Original iPhone.

From iPhone 2G to iPhone 7 Plus, it was an incredible journey of success, hard work, firm determination, profits, and losses. We also saw one company celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Original iPhone by providing a skin for the iPhone users so that they could remember and make that old piece of innovation alive once again.

One more tech destination, iFixit that has been telling you the reparability scores of almost every flagship is also participating in the celebration of the iPhone anniversary with its own way. It gathered the reparability scores of all the 15 iPhones at one place to tell you how the reparability has changed over the time. The very first iPhone was very hard to repair hence it gained the score 2, however, next iPhones are somewhat easier to repair. All of them after iPhone 2G have either received the score 6 or 7.

The very first iPhone earned 2/10 score as it had the soldered battery and was almost impossible to open without breaking the case.

The Apple iPhone 2G isn't still available. To be notified when it becomse available click here.
