iPhone 5 release: first teardown of the new iPhone

German site iPhone-Garage has been able to perform an initial teardown of the new iPhone.

Most of the space inside is taken up by the 1,440 mAh battery.

However, its large dimensions account for the bigger 4-inch screen and the 4G LTE power consumption.

What is remarkable though is Apple’s craft at packing all these small components into the iPhone 5 case.

Here is an extensive set of photos showing the iPhone 5 teardown.
