Pentalobe Screwdriver

January 21, 2011 by USA Post 

Pentalobe Screwdriver, We know that Apple is not as if they were tampered with and things they seem to go the extra mile to prevent it. According to the report, Apple will be using special “Pentalobe” screws that are hard to find screwdriver. If you bought an iPhone recently 4, you can view on your device.
Who screwed whom? Simple, really: Apple will use a new type of screw for the iPhone 4. It’s called pentalobe a slightly roundabout five star-shaped screw head with accompanying screwdriver is difficult to find. But not strong enough to repel intruders iFixit remotely. To learn more for good juice.
The humble pentalobe has a short history with Apple. Specialized screws first appearance on the MacBook Pro in mid-2009. Their goal was simple: keep the device away from dismantling and other manipulations. If your Apple product should be open, it leads to the genius bar. That was the reasoning behind the upgrade of screw head. The pentalobe earned a reputation further with its introduction of the MacBook Air and the iPhone will now keep four sealed prying hands, eyes and minds.

Or maybe Apple thought. As mentioned a few paragraphs to the north of the iFixit team have developed a “Release Package” which has a screwdriver and a Philips Standard pentalobe. The goal is to use their own pentalobe screwdriver to remove and replace the 4 iPhone? Screws so that the Philips can now be used without any problem. But beware; the solution iFixit actually uses a screwdriver head with five branches. Pentalobe On the other hand has five points, which are circular (see photo “lobe on a MacBook above). That suggests iFixit is their solution is used sparingly.

Anyway, go here for a scathing piece and teaching the iFixit gang.
