iPhone 3G Battery Semi-Replaceable
As you know, the original iPhone’s battery was extremely difficult to replace, but now it appears that Apple may have thrown us a bone on this one. It’s still not easily replaceable, but iFixit’s teardown revealed that the battery is now no longer soldered in place on the board. This means that while it’s not officially user-replaceable yet, the process of replacing the battery will be significantly simpler. This is especially good news for those of you that enjoy DIY hardware-hackery.
