iFixit is a company that cracks open gadgets of all kinds and peers inside, photographing and sharing what they find. The iPhone is no exception. Some of the first iPhones to hit the world at large find their way to iFixit for a quick teardown, often with photos posted while the teardown is in progress.

Most iPhone repairs requires some special tools — spudgers and suction cups and pentalobe screwdrivers. If you need help with an iPhone 6 Plus repair, check out iFixit’s iPhone 6 Plus repair guide.
