    You'll probably void your warranty same as if you did it with a MBA.

    nice. I wondered what the 2 circles were when they showed the bottom, but I guess I just assumed they were the mic and the outer parts were the speakers (though I don't know why there would have been two mics)

    Buying 3rd party memory voids your warranty? I highly doubt that.

    Nothing is user serviceable in the MBAs. If you open the case you voided the warranty. You can upgrade the ram of every other mac though with 3rd party ram.

    No it does not!

    Apple even tell you how to change it on their website as they will only install Apple memory for you...

    That a screenshot from the keynote?

    By the way, mrat93, looks like Hoopdy was responding to Telp's claim that users will void their warranty if they buy non-Apple RAM (completely false), not you. Not sure how the misquote happened but it does happen on very rare occasions.

    If anybody wants the time in the keynote it was shown, it was 1:26:48.

    They're screws so technicians can get inside easier or they're just aesthetic.

    If there are screws then it's not a removable battery; come on people, when was the last time you bought a phone with removable battery that required a screwdriver?

    ...

    lol

    There are screws on the side of my MacBook Pro. Guess what, the MLB is removable.

    "Removable" is relative, but replaceable, not by the customer, no.

    Just opening the iPhone will void your warranty because no part of it is considered a customer serviceable part.

    The fact that the answer to that question is "iPhone" should have been your first clue. The fact that a "removable battery" was not listed as an upgrade should have been your second.

    I think he said, "a removable battery that required a screwdriver", which is a valid point. Any phone I've ever had or seen had clips, or snaps, or slides or something to remove the battery.. never screws.

    Sorry for being a bit of a prat above, but my point is just this: basically all Apple products have screws, so finding them doesn't imply that something internal is suddenly more accessible. And, considering the relatively negative response that Apple received for it in the first place they probably would have mentioned this as an upgrade during the keynote if it were the case.

    My point was that iPhone is different from all phones. It's the only phone I've seen without a removable battery, so why can it be even more different and use screws to hold in the battery?

    IF our phones would have the screws, perhaps it's for replacing the plastic back when it gets scratched/cracked. Perhaps we could do that ourselves fairly easily.

    While I wish there was a removable battery, I doubt there is. As previously stated, the MacBook Air has screws on the bottom but there is no removable battery. Also, Jobs would have announced that during the keynote. And there is still a slot on the top of the phone for the SIM card. Most phones would put it behind the battery cover. Further proving that Apple still isn't giving us a user removable battery.
