    Exclusive Images, High Definition iPhone 5

    RepairLabs  has done it again: we're bringing  you new exclusive images. From the folks responsible for bringing you the latest in iPhone secret photos, we’ve gotten new images. We have just received EXCLUSIVE high-definition images of the soon-to-be-released iPhone 5 front glass assembly.  So what about the changes? Let’s talk about them!

    iPhone 5 Exclusive Images

    Conclusions we can draw from these exclusive images

    With these photos we can confirm:


    • Apple has redone the whole front Digitizer and LCD Assembly of the device. We see 3 flex cables. The first seems to be the proximity ear speaker, and the front camera. The last two probably LCD and Digitizer.
    • The ratio suggests that it is indeed the long-rumored bigger screen.
    • The camera is in the front middle of the ear speaker, not  on the side  of the ear speaker anymore.
    • It looks like it has a black ear speaker mesh right now.
    • We can also see the home button is going to have more support; it’s backed by a metal bracket. It doesn’t look like it’s going to be supported anymore by prongs or a push cable. It may actually be a combination of both.
    • It looks like it has a plastic 3GS-type midframe running around the digitizer and glass LCD assembly.
    • The metal brackets suggest that it will be sitting into a housing, similar to a 3GS, but more updated and modern.
    • From the width of the bracket, we can tell the charger port is indeed going to be smaller because it has to fit between the two silver bottom screw brackets, just like a 3GS.
    • These pictures suggest that  the LCD may pull apart from the Digitizer, given the rivets on the sides. (This is similar again to the 3GS, but a departure from the 4 and 4S.)
    • We notice a striking similarity to a 3GS, with the bottom screws and brackets. We think it’s going to pull open from the front.


    So, could this be the iPhone 5 real deal? We think so, and we believe these exclusive photos prove a lot of what the tech world has been suspecting all along in regards to the new iPhone 5. Could Apple be going back to the old faithful model of the iPhone 3Gs? It looks probable.  From the leader in  iPhone repair services, exclusive images of the iPhone 5, and Apple hardware components, remember you heard it here first.

  • Yoda and the Broken Gaming Console

    Posted on July 25, 2012 by Curtis Taylor


    Yoda sends his broken gaming consoles to Repairlabs.com….using the Force!



    Yoda's broken gaming console. Sending to www.RepairLabs.com to fix it.

    How embarrssing. How embarrassing.

    We understand the abject agony of a broken gaming console.

    Did you know that we can fix broken gaming consoles? We fix Xboxes, PS3, PSP, PSP Vitas, Wii, Nintendo DS and many more! We can even fix the RED RING of DEATH on Xbox and Playstation. We can replace drives.  We can even fix your Wii if you accidentally throw a controller at it. Pour a soda over your console? We fix that too. We can restore gaming consoles with moisture damage and corrosion (from Mountain Dew, beer, etc, etc). Not to brag, we even fix broken controllers. We change CD ROM drives, pull stuck disks, clean them, and even blow out all the dust. You’d be surprised how dusty those things get. We can even fix broken Beats Headphones. Yes, you heard us right. That was because your Beats Phones are broken.

    Yes, you could buy a new one. But then again, the next gen of it is coming out in only 14 months... Maybe you should just upgrade. But you still have to wait those pesky 14 months, with no gaming system. NOT AN OPTION. Trust us, it’s cheaper and faster to get it fixed.

    Yoda can get back to playing Madden faster than a pod racer through the Lars Homestead Dome, since we fixed his broken gaming console. This is why Yoda loves us.

    “Lost a planet, Master Obi-Wan has. How embarrassing. How embarrassing.”

    --Yoda, Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

    “Broken an Xbox, Master Guns4Hire84 has. How embarrassing. How embarrassing.”

    Bet you just read that in Yoda Voice, huh?


    So remember, young Jedi Knights and scoundrels everywhere (or in a Galaxy Far Far Away), we fix everything. Send your broken gaming console in to us.

    We <3 Daddy DIV Photo –Free

    Father's Day Photo idea We heart daddy shadow pict

    You are now dead of the cute.

    We think it would be relatively simple to take some posterboard and an iPhone and shoot this picture on a sunny afternoon. If my calculations are correct, the kids need to hold the signs upside down.  You stand facing them. Print it on photo stock pop it in a frame for his desk at work ~and  best part, it’s Dad’s favorite gift of all.  Laurie, the fantastic blogger  at Tip Junkie , provided this great picture, but was unable to find the source of this beautiful  image.

    Hope these ideas get you going to show Dad how great he really is.
