The new design of the iPhone 5 could be a problem for custom back panels

The iPhone 5, although some feel that not much has changed, is a major change compared to its predecessor. It has a larger screen, improved internal components and a new unibody design.

We all know the typical accessories that change the exterior design of the iPhone, as custom housings or thousands of different themes. Well, the design of the new iPhone 5 could pose problems for manufacturers of this type of accessories. This is because, instead of a single piece of glass (such as the iPhone 4 and 4S), this part is aluminum, the rear glass panel is directly connected to the internal components.

In CultofMac have interviewed the creator of accessories Monolith:

"According Monolith will be a tough year with the iPhone 5, as it appears that is different from the iPhone 4. As in the iPhone 3G/3GS, it seems that the structure of the phone consists of internal components connected directly to the rear. Although the iPhone 5 seems to be more unibody than 3G. I think this makes it impossible to replace these rear panels, in the absence of some crazy stunt. "

This makes custom backs are much more difficult to do, if not impossible. Instead of simply removing two screws at the bottom of the phone and sliding the back panel, as in the previous iPhone, the iPhone 5 would have to completely dismantle the device.

The good news is that the customization is not completely lost to the iPhone 5. MendMyi People already working in different ways to customize the phone with some success.

It will be interesting to see how the new Apple smartphone ends up affecting all manufacturers of accessories and personalization. It seems that the thing has become much more complicated.
