How Do I Take Apart an iPhone Without a Special Tool?
You won't need any special tools to open the iPhone; just a suction cup and a small screwdriver. (Tool kit 2 image by Alexander Oshvintsev from Fotolia.com)

The iPhone is a touch-screen smart phone released by Apple Inc. in 2007. Since its release, it has sold over 41 million units (as of December 2009). It's full of features, including a built-in YouTube application, built-in iTunes (to download music straight to your phone), Wi-Fi connectivity, a camera, an accelerometer and much more. But as advanced and complex as the iPhone is, it's really quite simple to open. All you'll need are a couple of basic tools and you can pop it open in no time.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Use your flathead screwdriver to unscrew the screws at the bottom of the phone, near the recharge port.

  2. 2

    Put the iPhone in the palm of one hand and stick the suction cup to its screen with your other hand. Grip the bottom section of the phone tightly.

  3. 3

    Pull on the suction cup while holding the iPhone. Pull with some strength, but not too hard. Wiggle it around a bit to loosen the two ends. After a minute the two halves should come apart and your iPhone will be open.
