As a kid, were you the type that would take apart your toys to see how they worked, and then put them together? Suppose your Apple iPhone 5 broke, would you crack it open and perform open-processor surgery yourself, or would you go to one of the many repair shops that keep popping up across the country? If the answer is the former, you might want to check out these two videos from PowerBookMedic. The provider of replacement parts and repairs has produced these two videos to show you how to open your phone and replace certain parts. While the Apple iPhone 5 is said to be easier to open and fix than its predecessor, it might not be a great idea to repair one yourself because opening the case instantly voids your warranty.
But opening up your Apple iPhone 5 is only half of the battle. The assembly video shows you how to put together the phone that you've just taken apart. If you end up with parts left over, well, something must not have gone right. We would suggest looking at these two videos as more of an amusement rather than a s away to pick up up some knowledge that you might use later, or heaven forbid, need now. And if you have a strong urge to take something apart and put it back together, you can go on eBay and buy Ideal Toy's classic Mr. Machine, a robot made expressly for that purpose.
