9to5mac reported, that Apple is replacing their original iPhone 4 screws with torx screws instead of the basic small screws. This screw is harder to unscrew because its an unusual 5 point torx “instead of the basic 6 point torx”. So why did Apple decide to use these torx screws? Are they out of normal screws, or are they trying to prevent people from replacing their normal “black” front and back panel with a white one? Or is there an other reason for this change.
