    Does anybody know if the iPhone 5S maintains the same rotational motor with counterweight found in the iPhone 5? Or does it use a linear oscillating type like in the iPhone 4S?

    Tried checking out ifixit's teardown but they did not touch on the motor.

    I didnt mind it on the iP5. Not sure of iP5S though.

    It's a rotational motor with counterweight. It's visible in the Step 8 pictures from infixit's teardown. Located top left corner of the phone.
