iPhone 4 Transparent Rear Panel: Enjoy The Benefits of a Teardown Without the Hassle of a Teardown

by Lambert Varias

The expert tinkerers at iFixit can ogle the innards of any gadget they get their hands on. If you own an iPhone 4 but not the skills required to dismantle it, there’s now a way for you to view your phone’s insides without tearing it down. Just get this transparent rear panel from iFixit.

The picture above already shows the panel installed on an iPhone 4, while the picture below shows the panel installed on an iPhone 4 with its logic boards stripped of their EMI shielding. The latter is much prettier, but it also increases the risk of damage to your phone.

You can order the transparent iPhone 4 rear panel from iFixit for $30 (USD). If you don’t know how to remove and replace the back panel, just check out iFixit’s guide.
