Apple introduced a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with an M2 processor under the hood at this year's Worldwide Developers Conference. (It was that other laptop the company introduced that wasn't the brand new, redesigned MacBook Air with M2.) It's been on sale for a bit of time now, so it's only appropriate that it gets the teardown treatment.
The biggest concern about Apple's new Self Service Repair program has to do with a serial number check during the checkout process.
In its initial Studio Display teardown, the repair site iFixit has concluded that there's nothing terribly wrong with camera hardware. That's good news because it indicates Apple should indeed be able to fix camera performance in software.
The iPhone 13 Pro is a modern work of technical genius. One of the heralded upgrades from the previous iPhone generation is a larger battery capacity. You can see the new “L” shaped battery design that is giving some extra charge, in these tear down wallpapers. In addition to the teardown photography, you can also snag an X-ray version that shows off a lot of the cool, upgraded internals.
Apple would very much like to keep tabs on the repair process for all of its devices. For some, that's a bonus because it means that the company who makes the devices can also fix them. And there are also authorized service providers if one can't make it to a physical Apple Store. However, some see it as a way for Apple to keep an iron grip on something it doesn't want out of its control. Both are probably true.
Earlier this week, the brand new, redesigned 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro went under the knife as the iFixit crew went through the teardown process. That was just a preview of what was to come, though, and now we finally have the full teardown.
We live in a world where, if you go to Apple's website right now and order a Polishing Cloth with the company's logo on it, you won't receive it for 10 to 12 weeks. That's mid-January of next year. But, before you make that purchase, what if we told you that you can't repair that cleaning accessory? Would that matter?
Yesterday was the big launch day for Apple's brand new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. So, of course, it wasn't going to take the fine folks over at iFixit long before they started taking the new hardware apart. Apple made some changes, both on the outside and inside, and today's teaser of the teardown reveals only a hint at what's to come from the big reveal.
While Apple didn't appear to go out of its way to brand the Apple Watch Series 7 as the biggest update to the smartwatch to date, there are quite a few updates. That includes the slightly larger case sizes in comparison to the previous model. And we can't forget the larger display, thanks to those slightly smaller bezels. The whole thing still looks like an Apple Watch, but it's got some important alterations. And now we've got a look under the hood, too.
New devices, new teardowns. That's what we can expect from the crew over at iFixit, and, sure enough, the trend continues. Today, the teardown experts have taken apart Apple's newest and smallest tablet. Along the way, they even describe what some are calling a "major issue."
Last week, on iPhone 13 launch day, the crew over at iFixit took a little peek under the hoods of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro. That initial teardown revealed a few noteworthy things, but it wasn't meant to be the full view. For folks waiting to see what's inside Apple's latest smartphone, though, the wait's finally over.
iFixit usually has a pretty speedy turnaround time for teardowns after a new product launches. That's certainly the case with iPhones, as there is generally a lot of interest in that sort of thing. If for no other reason than to see the latest repairability scores. This year isn't any different, and the repair crew offered up an initial look at what's under the hood for both the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro.
