Step Lines

-[* black] Apple avengers, disassemble!
+[* black] iPhone 5s Repairability: ***6 out of 10*** (10 is easiest to repair)
+[* green] Just like in the iPhone 5, the display assembly is the first component out of the phone, simplifying screen replacements.
+[* red] The battery has lost the 5's convenient pull tab, and gained more resilient adhesive—it now requires heat and prying to remove.
+[* red] The iPhone 5s still uses Pentalobe screws on the exterior, making it more difficult to open the device.
+[* red] The front glass, digitizer, and LCD are all one component, thereby increasing cost of repair.
+[* red] Lots of smaller components are soldered to one ribbon cable, increasing the cost of repairing just one component.
