We've only got one day to go until the iPhone 4S is officially in stores or on our door steps, but iFixit has already done an official tear down of the new phone. You already know that inside it's got an 1GHz Apple A5 dual-core processor, plus a dual-band radio chip and an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera. And this is what it looks like:
It looks like a convoluted mess of circuits and wires. The iPhone 4S also has an upgraded Qualcomm MDM6610 radio chipset (refer to the red box), plus flash memory provided by Toshiba (the same manufacturers of those evil Windows laptops).
It's interesting to note that while the Retina Display on the iPhone 4S hasn't changed from its predecessor, Apple stuck with the linear oscillating vibration motor that was standard in the Verizon iPhone 4 (the AT&T version contained a rotational electric motor).
