725 precision-matched inlays

September 13, 2012

Never before has this degree of fit and finish been applied to a phone. Take the glass inlays on the back of iPhone 5, for instance. During manufacturing, each iPhone 5 aluminum housing is photographed by two high-powered 29MP cameras. A machine then examines the images and compares them against 725 unique inlays to find the most precise match for every single iPhone.

This is just the kind of thing that makes this perfectionist, anal-retentive bastard swoon.
