iPhone 5c Repairability: 6 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)

Just like in the iPhone 5, the display assembly is the first component out of the phone, simplifying screen replacements.

The battery is still fairly easy to access, even though it's not technically "user replaceable."

Adhesive on the antenna connectors hinder disassembly.

The battery has lost the 5's convenient pull tab, and gained more resilient adhesive—it now requires heat and prying to remove.

The iPhone 5c still uses Pentalobe screws on the exterior, making the 5c difficult to open.

The front glass, digitizer, and LCD are all one component, thereby increasing cost of repair.
