iPhone 4 Wallpapers: Gyro and Internals

June 30, 2010 Hardware, Site News — Miro

This morning we published a teardown of the iPhone 4’s vibrational gyroscope. We tried our best to explain how vibrational gyroscopes function and have documented their internals at a microscopic level.

The pictures were worth a thousand words. Everyone was thrilled to see Chipworks‘ images of vibrational gyroscopes, and one user even made an iPhone wallpaper out of them.

We loved the “gyroscope wallpaper” idea so much that we re-created the same wallpaper for everyone to enjoy, and included an “iPhone 4 Internals” wallpaper to boot:

Just click on the pictures above within your iPhone’s browser to access the full-resolution images. If for some reason you cannot click on the images, you can use the Gyro and Internals links, respectively.

iPhone 2G, 3G & 3GS users, do not fret — the images are 2:3 ratio and will look just fine on your phones.

This is a buy zero, get two free promotion, practically unheard of outside of iFixit. Enjoy!


  1. Awesome wallpaper. Well done.

  14. No, no, no!!! This walpaper is awesome BUT there is a serios mistake here. Unlike the 3G/3GS in the iPhone 4 the image of the front of the main logic board is the back of the one shown here. Let me explain: your 3Gs wallpapers are right because you remove the LCD and what you see behind it is exactly what the wallpaper shows. OK :) But the iPhone 4 opens from the back and this is what your wallpaper shows. A view from the back! So, if the idea is to pass the feeling that the screen is removed and you are looking inside just behind it, the correct wallpaper would be exactly the back of what your picture is showing. Right?
