Our friends from iFixit did an iPhone X teardown and it shows in detail the components that make the latest iPhone from Apple. iFixit says that the iPhone X looks a lot like the original one released in 2007.
The iPhone has come a long way in ten years—so long, in fact, that the design has cycled back a bit, and this iPhone looks more like the original than we’ve seen in a long time.
iFixit’s teardown includes some high-resolution photos of the iPhone X’s new TrueDepth camera system that powers Face ID and Animoji. The also made an X-Ray scan, have a look at the next picture.
The iPhone X X-Ray shows two battery cells, a tiny logic board and a mysterious chip down between the Taptic Engine and lower speaker. Apparently, the logic board has been shrunk to make space for the extra front-facing sensors.
After removing the bottom screws we can see a sideways-opening iPhone X which according to the guys at iFixit “Looks like sideways-opening iPhones are here to stay. Apple surprised us with this little trick on the 7 Plus, but by now it’s standard.”
Diving further in the teardown they also found a single bracket that covers every logic board connector – new in an iPhone, the iPhone X motherboard is about 70% of the size of the iPhone 8 Plus and other cool stuff.
