Apple iPhone 5 to Have Pentalobular Screws

Have you ever open up your old o new gadget to see what is inside or tried to repair some part of it? Some people try to open their gadget and study what is inside the gadget. This is happening all over the world. Most of us like to repair mobiles and ipods when they are broken. On most o the cases this may worsen the problem or render the gadget useless. An some smart gays become masters in their own gadget. Both these are not acceptable for giants like Apple.

Apple is going to stop this bad habit(?) by introducing a new technology. Apple is set to introduce a new type of screws called pentalobular screws through their product line. This is to prevent users from opening up their iPhones. Reports say that Apple has implemented it in some of the iPhone 4 available worldwide other than the US and most definitely be included on the next generation iPhone as well. The main advantage is that there are currently no screwdrivers on the market that will be able to open it. These screws were first introduced in the MacBook Pro then the MacBook Air and now the iPhone 4. To make matters worse, if users send their current non-pentalobular iPhones for fixing, Apple will replace them with the new ones.

If apple get success in this attempt sooner all our gadget manufactures go for something like this.
