Teardown experts over at iFixit know a thing or two about repairing consumer electronics and just yesterday they posted a nice video walkthrough explaining the process of replacing your iPhone 5’s battery. The process starts with removing the front panel assembly from the rear case, which requires removing the two 3.6 mm Pentalobe screws next to the Lightning connector prior to pressing a suction cup onto the screen.
Speaking of which, iFixit is currently offering some notable savings on the iPhone Liberation Kits (currently over $30 off) as part of its Liberation Week, which ends tomorrow, July 5. Should you not feel confident enough to go through the process yourself, remember that Apple’s standard one-year iPhone warranty includes a free replacement for a battery that no longer holds enough energy to power your device. Specifically, Apple will replace your battery if it drops below 50 percent of its original capacity during the plan’s coverage period. Replacing samsung screens are harder because all its used is glue and plastic and it takes a lot longer than any iphone repair. Not wanting to dismiss your message, but you yourself could try a little more punctuation… Things like quotation marks are commonly forgotten by many, but they add a lot to readability of a comment if people quote examples or short phrases. What should be taken from our learned friend is that he isn’t required to be grammatically or factually correct. No offence here but regardless of any mistakes that have been made in any iDB articles usually the point has still been illustrated quite well. If this were a professional magazine publication or an article for a newspaper then yes maybe I’d be a little bit pissed off by the mistakes made, considering I probably would have paid to read the article. I actually liked this architecture better, even if its a little more tedious replacing the battery than on my 4.
If its a screen and digitiser replacement, then I can say wihout hesitation its easier with the 5.
As much as we’d love to be able to say that the iPhone 5 is an “all day” phone, it’s still not: just like most of its predecessors, Apple prioritized new thinness and speed over battery life. Because of the iPhone 5’s tendency to run low on juice just when the night’s getting started, heavy users and frequent travelers will once again find themselves in need of spare battery packs and chargers. It goes without saying that your iPhone 5’s battery life will depend on your usage pattern so you observe better or worse battery life.

Given that Hynix only makes 25% of all DRAM produced (a significant amount, but far from a majority), whoever is contracted with Apple to make their phones has plenty of options – and they are still under a contract. When you order your iPhone 5 battery replacement, we will include a safe open pry tool with your order at no additional cost. Repair and reuse experts iFixit flew to Australia to get one of the first available iPhone 5s, and then immediately tore it to pieces. Despite the tiny increase in overall power capacity, the iPhone 5 still contains improved internals. The power efficiency is due in large part to the move to smaller process nodes for some of the important chips. Other notable improvements include an integrated metal support bracket for the iPhone 5's home button.

The iPhone 5’s battery life is greatly reduced depending on the strength of the cellular signal received by the phone, according to extensive testing performed by iLounge Monday. When routing data via LTE cellular networks, battery life was significantly below Apple’s advertised 8 hours. As no model of iPhone contains a user-swappable battery, customers concerned with battery life may wish to consider a case with an included battery or a portable battery charging device.
I don’t have any Bluetooth accessories for my device, so I keep Bluetooth turned off. When charging your phone, take it out of its case and place it on a cool surface that can draw heat from it, say a dinner plate.
Brian did some excellent sleuthing and came across battery capacities for both the iPhone 5s and 5c in Apple’s FCC disclosures. The iPhone 5s improves power consumption by going to 28nm, but turns that savings into increased performance.


The iPhone 5s regresses a bit compared to the 5 in this test (~12% reduction despite the larger battery). Our Egypt HD based 3D battery life test gives us the first indication that Rogue, at least running fairly light code, can be more power efficient than the outgoing 5XT. BT's 32-bit result includes hardware accelerated AES, which skews its score (without it, its score is ~936).
The next iPhone’s move to a higher voltage chemistry is supposed to provide tangible benefits to battery lifetime. Apple is widely expected to unveil iPhone 5 at the media event on September 12 that was officially announced yesterday, followed by the release on September 21. Tried watching a video on how to replace the screen for a friend and I was scared for my life just watching someone do it in a video.
I mean I value what you say, but every article you write is littered with either with either (this is an example of a mistake you commonly make) mistakes, spelling or typos.
Yes there may be the odd one or two typos here and there but this is after all the Internet. While you can change the battery faster on the iPhone 4, to replace the screen would be an uber pain in the patience… While with the iPhone 5, everything (or both cases at least) seems to be way more realizable(not to mention less precision is required).
I followed this step by step and when it came to removing the battery, the plastic tool accidentally damaged the battery. Consequently, it’s advisable to keep a charging cable nearby, lest you find yourself out of juice at or before 5pm. As always, the iPhone 5S is a marvel of engineering, packing the latest hardware into one of the lightest and thinnest smartphones on the market.
Due to the limitations of physics, it’s physically very hard to produce a camera that is physically small and shallow that can still capture good photos. Although I think iPhones have big enough margins to be able to cushion the higher costs(Which will be fairly small when considering everything that goes into the phone) without affecting the price the consumer pays.
If you know the charger is working properly, but this is still happening, it is likely a bad battery. The A6 processor promises twice the compute and graphics performance, the Qualcomm MDM9615 baseband delivers LTE compatibility, updated WiFi works on faster 5GHz channels, and improved TI and Broadcom chips power the larger 4" touchscreen's multitouch input.
The A6 processor is built on a 32nm high K process by Samsung, while the Qualcomm baseband is etched using a 28nm process by TSMC. Many of us in the Ars Orbiting HQ have suffered from a deteriorating home button on the iPhone 4 and 4S, which tends to fail after about a year or so.
But the "slate" anodized coating on the black iPhone model may show signs of wear after extended use.
While all cellular devices experience decreased battery life when cellular signals are weak, the relatively few areas with strong LTE signals means that iPhone 5 users may see less than half of Apple’s advertised running time.
AT&T LTE browsing lasted 4 hours and 44 minutes, while Verizon LTE browsing fared only slightly better, at 5 hours 15 minutes. Consequently, it’s advisable to keep a charging cable nearby, lest you find yourself out of juice at or before 5pm. As carriers continue to transition to and expand their LTE networks, many iPhone customers may find themselves with only one or two bars of LTE signal strength in areas in which they previously had four or five bars of 3G strength. Here in Britain we have EE (Everything Everywhere) who is the sole provider of 4G LTE services, in just a handful of cities at the moment. Visit our Mac Geek Gab Facebook Group and have the tech support brilliance of the entire Mac Geek Gab community at your fingertips! The SoC also delivers a wider dynamic range of performance than we’ve ever seen from an Apple device. As always, we regularly load web pages at a fixed interval until the battery dies (all displays are calibrated to 200 nits). We're loading web pages very aggressively here, likely keeping the A7 cores running at their most power hungry state. Current phones use about 2W at max load without the screen (see recent Nexus 7 test), so the claimed 2.5W just for BT is way too much for a phone. If you lay down a floor plan that keeps high power drain areas apart but still keeps latency low. The connector on the iPhone 5 is not only different, it is placed on the opposite side of the battery to accomodiate its new position within the iPhone.


However, as a professional member of the press I expect iDB’s articles to have been proofed for any such mistakes BEFORE publishing. Considering most consumers don’t normally pay full price for phones now anyway(Normally paying through a contract instead), even if it did increase the sale price I doubt it would have much affect on most people. This iPhone 5 battery replacement is an affordable way to get back the usage time you need to be able to call, send emails, texts and more on your great device. The updated unibody-style construction of the case also means that it's relatively easy to remove and replace the front LCD touchscreen panel—a common iPhone repair, according to iFixit.
Other power improvements derive from the A6's custom ARM core design as well as targeted power management in iOS 6. Once cellular data was turned on, even if network traffic was being routed via Wi-Fi, battery life dropped to about 5.5 hours. As noted by iLounge, the LTE tests were conducted with only two bars of signal strength, and those in areas with stronger signal will likely experience longer running times. There’s as much CPU power here as the first 11-inch MacBook Air, and more GPU power than an iPad 4. Even the 5c sees a bit of a regression compared to the 5, which makes me wonder if we're seeing some of the effects of an early iOS 7 release here. It'll be interesting to see if BT gets a similar performance boost when Win8 64bit versions are released in 1h 2014.
The 30% gain due to tweaks is pure speculation of course, however NVidia claims 15-30% IPC gain for similar tweaks in Tegra 4i, so it's not entirely implausible.
However, what you suggest is that Apple could theoretically have the same performance as Intel on a full node process larger at half the power. Btw, I was leaving out the quotes on purpose because I felt without quotes it did a better job of making my point. As a result the battery burst into flames leaving me with 2nd degree burns an a fried iPhone.

Apple claims the same or better battery life on the 5s compared to the iPhone 5, in practice the answer is a bit more complicated. Therefore the A7 will extend its lead even further.According to TSMC 20nm will give a 30% frequency boost at the same power. Next year's A8 or whatever probably will compete directly with Haswell in raw theoretical integer and FP throughput, if Apple manages to double performance again. Intel may be large, but they are not infallible, after all they made the P4, Itanium and Atom. Again, as in any profession: I believe professionals are considered professionals for a reason.

A key reason AMD cited for moving into ARM servers was that designing an ARM CPU takes far less effort than an equivalent performing x86 one. You take an English class at college expecting that professor to be able to write proper sentences. The Mac Observer is an independent publication and has not been authorized, sponsored, or otherwise approved by Apple, Inc. So my point is that with a die shrink and a slight increase in power they already have a Haswell competitor. One is working on a ton of different stuff, and one makes processors, basically exclusively (SSDs and WiFi stuff too, but processors is their main drive).
That's simply a factor of your peak IPC, not your average IPC while the device is running.
