You may be one of the lucky few cradling a newborn iPhone 4S in its swadling clothes this morning, but spare a thought for the new Apple smartphone that landed in the hands of the iFixit team. As is their custom, they’ve torn the phone apart in order to reveal all its component innards.

The tear-down has revealed 512MB of DDR2 RAM alongside a Qualcomm MDM6610 chip, with, in the case of the 16GB model, 16GB of Toshiba’s NAND flash memory.

So how much work will it take to put the iPhone 4S back together if you blow it up?

You’ll be pleased to hear it isn’t quite Humpty-Dumpty levels of difficulty here, with the iPhone 4S getting an iFixit repairability score of 6 out of 10, with 10 being the easiest to fix.

Not bad going!

The iPhone 4S goes on general sale around the world today.
