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.
