Hey, great news: the iPhone 5 teardown is underway! After months of iPhone rumors, days of post-announcement anticipation, and hours of waiting in line, we’ve managed to get our repair-happy hands on the new iPhone 5.

iFixit co-founder Luke Soules trekked halfway around the world to Melbourne, Australia to be one of the first to receive the iPhone 5. Then, he flew like the wind back to MacFixit Australia's office and started taking apart our unit. The process is now well underway.

Check out the details of the teardown now, or wait for the full summary of findings to follow!
