Can an iPhone work while deconstructed?
I have never attempted taking apart an iPhone before. I am generally familiar with the parts, but not with their connections. I am interested in taking an iPhone apart and making a display(like a museum display, not an LCD-type display) of the different layers of components in a way similar to CG models that can be found online. I would be content with this, but I wanted to go one step further - Would it be possible to display a deconstructed iphone with connections made between components such that the phone could be somewhat operable?
(e.g., is there anything I can do to take an iPhone apart but still make it turn on). I don't plan on fully breaking down the phone, but if there is any way this could possibly work, I would greatly appreciate your help. If there is no way this could work, I'll stick with the basics. Thanks!
This is very helpful. I'm still waiting on parts to start the project, but this will be useful insight once I begin. Thanks for the help and quick response!
Ok, so I got may hands on a good iPhone 4. Before I open it up, I want to know if it's dangerous. I am new at this, so I want to make sure I'm not going to get sick/harmed/die front the insides of it. I've read online that there are toxic chemicals in all devices, but it's in the context of the environment - I want to know about me. Am I safe doing this?
