Released on June 29, 2007, the very first iPhone blew up the idea of the cell phone, putting a personal computer/phone/assistant at your fingertips at all times, and pioneering the push to the modern era of the smartphone with one of its features being the game-changing touchscreen interface. When Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone at Macworld in 2007, the iPhone essentially changed the world with its revolutionary features. Since its initial release in 2007, there have been many iterations of the iPhone, released (mostly) on an annual cycle. Each rendition has added new features, faster processing, and improved graphics.
Each iPhone model has a different level of repairability: the 3GS's front glass is replaceable separate from the display assembly (glass panels in later models are not), while the iPhone 4 provided easier repair of the rear panel and battery. Newer iPhones like the iPhone 11 have rear glass panels that are notoriously difficult to repair, but their screens are among the simplest to replace in the industry. With each new design iteration, new iPhone repair challenges arise and old ones are remedied.
Though Apple may tell you otherwise, all of these devices are user-serviceable with the help of our repair guides, found in each of the device pages above.
The most often replaced iPhone parts are the screen, battery, motherboard, logic board, microphone and screws.
The most apparent Apple iPhone identifiers are the famous bitten Apple logo and the “iPhone” lettering on the back panel. Newer iPhones such as the iPhone 11 have a more centrally located logo and do not have the “iPhone” lettering.
For the iPhone 8 and later models, the model number can be found in the SIM tray slot if the device has a SIM tray or on the top side of the charging port. For iPhone models before the iPhone 8, the model number can be found below the Apple logo on the back of the device.
