What’s inside all the iPhones

Bloomberg:

The story of the device’s evolution is readily available to anyone willing to crack an old phone open and look at what’s inside.

This is unabashed gadget porn. It won’t be of much value to the average user but, if you’re the kind of person who likes to take electronics apart, this is the page for you.

    Pretty-looking iPhone guts definitely will not sell more iPhones. Almost no consumer cares about anything inside an iPhone and Wall Street damn sure cares even less. Consumers only care about whether a product works or it doesn’t work. There’s nothing much consumers think of a product beyond that. The number of people who ooh and ahh over printed circuits and microprocessors has to be close to .0001% of the world population. Apple is going to have to do much better than that to stay within sighting range of the FANG stocks.

    • “Pretty-looking iPhone guts definitely will not sell more iPhones” No one said it would. As I said in the post, “It won’t be of much value to the average user”. You felt the need to repeat that in order to post about FANG stocks again. Is there a reason why you do that in completely unrelated posts?

        Eh, who knows what the heck he’s doing.

        All I know is I love Apple and their attention to detail. From the first time I disassembled a Mac to the iPhone. It’s these details that make Apple great. This way of thinking works from the inside out, to the hardware and the software. It’s why they are different and better.

        His screen name says it all, I think.

    Oh man Shawn, this is great. Bookmarked. What I really find cool is how the internals of the phone gradually became as gorgeous as the externals as Apple took over more and more of the chip and battery designs. There’s a reason they’re leaps and bounds ahead of the competition when it comes to raw power and efficiency. This stuff matters.
