With the fervor, the fanfare, and the hoopla surrounding the release of the new iPhones, you may find that your iPhone 4S or your iPhone 5 looks just a little less shiny these days. And while there will always be reasons to upgrade, Australia’s The Checkout—a consumer affairs investigation show—offers a reason why you shouldn’t: you probably don’t need to.
Though it has been an absolutely gorgeous and mild summer here at iFixit headquarters, we’ve been working diligently in the studio, producing tons of new repair and teardown videos. What can we say? We love what we do. There are dozens of videos on our YouTube channel, ranging from game console repairs, to a segment called Ask iFixit, to a particularly informative video on ESD.
We’ve delved into the wonderful world of online video in a big way. Our primary focus has been producing high-quality repair videos as a supplement to our existing repair guides. We know that sometimes it’s helpful to see someone perform a specific step in a repair, and our repair videos are designed for just that!
