iPhone 4 More Difficult to Get In
Apple doesn’t like people getting inside the iPhone 4 to tinker about, and they aren’t too enamoured at owners using DIY iPhone 4 conversion kits either and thus Apple is taking steps to make it a tad more difficult to do both.
Torx screws is known for being fairly difficult to unscrew thus making tampering with the iPhone 4 a more hazardous practice, and according to sources the changing of screws is a new Genius Bar practice.
Furthermore it appears that not only is Apple making the changes when units are serviced but App Advice is reporting that new iPhone 4 handsets now sport the Torx screws.
So if you are thinking of perhaps using a conversion kit don’t send your iPhone 4 for service until you have done the DIY conversion as after the screws are replaced there’s a good chance you’ll have a much harder time.
So what do our readers think, should Apple just leave the screws alone or are they right in making the change to make an owners life a tad more difficult?
