Building an iPhone

Yesterday, I shared a post which gives an overview of what it’s like to work in an iPhone factory.

Today’s video shows how an individual can build an iPhone from scratch. It’s not exactly from scratch because parts like the logic board are sourced as an assembled product rather than as individual end components.

However, as the video shows, widely used hardware components are quick to commoditize. After this hardware commoditization, software remains the differentiator.

You can watch the 24 minute video below.
