Photo suggests Apple out to 'screw' hardware hackers
Apple is designing its own, entirely proprietary screw-head in a bid to prevent punters and repair shops getting inside its future iDevices.
At least, it is if - and it's a very big 'if' - you take a piccy posted on the interweb at face value.
Captioned "a friend took a photo a while ago at that fruit company, they are obviously even creating their own screws", the snap shows a screw with a rounded thread and a head of maze-like complexity. Apparently, it's a snap of an email, which mentions the complex head is "totally asymmetric" and entirely unburdened by third-party screwdriver support.
