    Not bad for before it's released. Gives you a better idea than anything you've seen previous to iFixIt getting a hold of theirs.

    After seeing the screen connectors in the photos that turned up and connections on both sides of the board,I had this great hunch it was going to be front to back... And thank god it's confirmed!

    Yeah, but is it really a good thing for us who do repairs? Just saying, some people that consider themselves just a little technically inclined will make the attempt of fixing them now. Sure there will still be plenty of people unwilling to attempt the repair, but I do think it will cause a little damper on our business.

    Default iphone5 teardown
    dont think it will hurt business too much with repairs, but people wanting custom phones is going to be harder with the back and mid frame being one piece. going back to just changing the color of the screen, maybe a back case at some point.
