I love the people at iFixit. Every time there’s a big Apple launch, they send someone to Australia to wait in line for the next iThing to make sure they’re one of the first in the world to get one.

And then they rip it apart.

It’s the same story with the iPhone 5. iFixit already has its iPhone 5 teardown posted, and it gives us a glimpse at what makes the hottest gadget of the year tick. 

Here’s a quick look at some of the most important components of the iPhone 5.

Here we go! First, the screws.

Then the screen...

Easy! Now let's see what's inside.

The logic board shows Apple's new A6 processor. Apple claims it's twice as fast as the processor in the iPhone 4S.

See that Qualcomm chip on the left? That's the LTE chip that provides insanely fast data speeds on the iPhone 5.

Here's the new dock connector. It's way smaller than before.

And here's the new camera.

Look at all those parts!
