We're eager to get a closer look at the eraser Lightning Connector, so we turn up the heat with our trusty iOpener.

Author's note: the fact that they bothered to call this the Pencil—and not the Pen/Stylus—and then failed to include an eraser is just absurd.

Even after a warm conversation with our iOpener, the Lightning Connector assembly still doesn't want to come completely out of its shell, but a quick tug frees it from the Pencil.

But at what cost... We definitely tore a flex cable...

Something tells us this isn't going to be one of those teardowns where everything goes back together at the end.
