The iPhone 5 doesn’t officially launch until Friday, September 21st and photos have already surfaced revealing most of the device’s internal parts and battery. Beating iFixit to the punch, has posted detailed shots of the iPhone 5’s guts. As expected from a device with a thickness of only 7.6mm, Apple (AAPL) has done an incredible job of cramming so many tiny components into the chassis. Naturally, the largest piece inside of the iPhone 5 is the 1,440 mAh, 3.8 volts and 5.45 watts-per-hour battery to power the larger 4-inch Retina display and keep 4G LTE power consumption in check. Again, as with any piece of Apple hardware, the inside is just as good-looking as the outside. How many companies take that kind of care into designing its products? Not many. A few more shots of the iPhone 5 teardown follow below.
