Apart from the iFixit teardown, another complete teardown of iPhone 6 by a Japanese blog has revealed a large battery, better repairability, several improvements and the hardware components in the device.
A Japanese blog Mac Otakara released a video on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 that revealed a large 1,810mAh battery that is fastened to the aluminium chassis instead of the earlier glued batteries in iPhone 5c and 5s. The battery can be removed using the adhesive pull tabs. Several hardware components are set into the 6.9-inch chassis with the front speaker, iSight camera module and Retina display LED fastened to the front glass. The iPhone 6 can easily be disassembled once open and Philips screws are used inside the chassis. The home button cable which was flimsy in the 5s is more solid and lengthy in the new iPhone.
The iPhone 6 Plus mainboard comprises the Apple A8 APL1011 SoC which was supplied by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC). Other components include a Qualcomm MDM9625M LTE modem, Skyworks low band LTE pad and TriQuint TQF6410 3G EDGE power amplifier module. The MP67B gyroscope and accelerator module from InvenSense is also included. The mainboard also packs a 16GB or 128GB Hynix NAND memory, ARM cortex -M3 micro controller, NXP 65V10 NFC module and Qualcomm RF transceiver.
Several improvements are noticeable in the iPhone 6 when compared to the previous iPhone 5s. Apple has managed to fit a large battery, a 1080p retina HD display with 401-ppi and easier disassembling of the device. Though the hardware between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are similar, the only difference is the 5.5-inch screen size with higher resolution and larger 2,915mAh battery for the iPhone 6 Plus. The iPhone 6 is priced at $199 while the 6 Plus is priced at $299.
