iPhone 3GS dismantled - in pictures

Find out what's inside Apple's new handset

Earlier today, our sister title Macworld UK brought you the first unboxing of the iPhone 3GS, now they've gone a step further and taken the iPhone 3GS apart, stripping away its parts, and discovering what's on the inside.

Macworld teamed up with Kyle Wiens, from iFixIt.com and the iFixIt team in California, who are analysing the parts.

Kyle has photographed the iPhone 3GS as it's stripped apart and we've scanned the logic board. So come with us as we discover what's inside the world's smartest smartphone.
