Teardowns of iPhone 5s, 5c show Touch ID assembly, reliability tweaks
An early teardown of the iPhone 5s and 5c, conducted by iExperts in Australia, has a exposed a few notable details about the hardware. It confirms for instance that the 5s has a new connector for the Touch ID fingerprint sensor assembly, and that while the 5s has a 5.92Whr battery, the 5c uses a 5.73Whr part. The original iPhone 5 battery was rated at 5.45Whr. At least in the phones iExperts received the new batteries are stamped "Apple Japan," hinting at possible suppliers.<br />
<br />
More immediately significant is that Apple has added an extra layer of coating to switches, which iExperts <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294328==http://iexpertsaustralia.blogspot.com.au/2013/09/iphone-55s5c-teardown.html" rel='nofollow'>suggests</a> should prevent internal failures seen in previous iPhones. Though iPhones are generally considered reliable, they can still be subject to defects, In case of a defect, Apple will typically replace an iPhone outright if it's still on warranty.
