As of this moment, the teardown is still in progress, but they’ve already gotten some fantastic images and details of Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor. As Apple already showed, the sensor is tightly built directly into the home button, which makes taking it apart a very interesting process. They’ve also got some hands-on high-res images of the iPhone 5S’s very heart and soul: The A7 chip.
