One of the most common requests we get from our take apart videos is to put them back together. So, starting with the iPhone 5 we decided to do just that.

iPhone 5 Part Locator Released

September 21st, 2012

With the release of the iPhone 5, we’re unveiling a new service still in Beta that we call Part Locator.

Many times when someone wants to replace a component in their gadget they have no idea what the proper name for the part is. To solve this problem we’ve created a visual system to help people locate the parts they need. Our system provides several internal shots of a device along with markers over replaceable components. Clicking on the marker will show more information on the part as well as a link to the component on our website.

We believe we have a created the most user intuitive system to ordering replacement parts for gadgets.

Give the new Part Locator a spin with the iPhone 5, and let us know what you think.
