iFixit got their hands on an iPhone 5 from Australia and started to teardown the iPhone 5 to see what’s inside. Some big changes in Apple’s latest iPhone are the 4-inch 1136×640 pixel (326 ppi) Retina display, the Apple A6 system on a chip (SoC), the 8 megapixel iSight camera, the new 8-pin Lightning connector, 4G LTE connectivity and of course iOS 6. The first thing they noticed during the teardown is that it will be a lot easier replacing the iPhone 5 screen than previous iPhone’s, “Because the iPhone 5 is opened front-to-back, replacing a cracked screen is going to be easier than ever. Compare this to the iPhone 4s, where it took 38 steps to isolate the display assembly.” » iPhone 5 Teardown [iFixit]

oleofobischThe iPhone has a special layer that protects against grease spots. This layer is called an oleophobic coating. It now seems to wear off when used in intensive ways. A user reports that after intensive use of the game Flick Fishing, a circular spot appeared on the screen. With Flick Fishing you have to make the same circular motion over and over, to catch a fish.

The stains are still visible but can be erased by just wiping them of with as much as a single wave of a piece of cloth. » Oleophobic Screen Wearing Off
