Clean your iPhone 5's camera from the insideThe iPhone 5, though surprisingly light, is rather sturdily built. And in typical Apple style, the device is completely closed off.

Fortunately there are people who can fix such problems, or show you how to “do it yourself”.

But if you’re an enterprising type of person who doesn’t mind walking on the wild side, the following video is instructive.
