How does Apple know if you opened your iPhone?

How would apple be able to tell if i opened my iphone up and in turn void my warranty?

if you flash a light down the headphone jack, or the charging slot you should either see red or white, if its red i think that means you have opened it up. im not to sure what colour it should be though.

The color change reflects that the phone has been in contact with liquid..not whether it has been opened or not.
