RepairsUniverse also released their iPhone 5 repair guide video showing the full disassembly of the iPhone 5 which includes details how to replace the iPhone 5 screen which is the most common part of the device to get damaged. The iPhone 5 repair guide video is available for free both on their website and on their YouTube channel.
"It's great that the design of the iPhone 5 makes it easy to repair. Following our free video instructions people will be able to save themselves a lot of money if they ever have the misfortune of damaging their phone," said Paul Weatherley founder of RepairsUniverse.com.
The iPhone 5 is easier to repair than its predecessor the iPhone 4S as it opens from the front. This means you can access and swap out the screen quickly and easily. On the earlier version you have to open the device from the back meaning you have to remove several parts inside the phone before you could even access the screen to replace it. It is the most repairable iPhone since the iPhone 3GS.
"We have already been receiving calls and emails this afternoon requesting replacement screens, it appears some people have had the bad luck of damaging their phones straight after receiving them. Fortunately we have the iPhone 5 replacement parts available to get them up and running again," said A sales representative from RepairsUniverse.com.
iPhone 5 accessories are also available on the site. Accessories currently available include protective cases and screen protectors but more are sure to follow in the upcoming days. These cases and screen protectors help prevent scratches, scuffs and more serious damage to the phone such as a cracked screen from a result of drop or fall.To view this video on YouTube, please visit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzjiaYXgETo&feature=share&list=UUuuKGquZ58vNvO0Xl3Oj1dQ
