This brilliant GIF shows how your iPhone gets assembled piece by piece

iPhone 5s Assembly GIF

We’ve gotten so used to smartphones in our lives that we don’t realize just what incredible feats of engineering they really are. PhoneArena has spotted an incredible new GIF made by an anonymous imgur user that quickly shows all of the components that you find in an iPhone 5s that need to be assembled to make a finished device. The GIF starts out with just the basic iPhone frame and then rapidly adds parts such as its camera, its A7 system on a chip and its battery one by one, showing how all of them overlap and fit together in the device’s tiny frame. Be sure to check it out below because it will give you a new appreciation of just how incredible smartphone engineering really is.
