As per usual, the cool cats at iFixit performed a full teardown of Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus handsets only hours after getting their hands on them at the first launches around the world. Over in another corner of the woods, Japanese blog Mac Otakara performed its own teardown of the smaller 4.7-inch iPhone 6 handset.
Per AppleInsider, the Mac Otakara teardown revealed an intricately designed interior with all-new components squeezing into a slightly revamped layout.
As seen in the video below, Apple was forced to make concessions in designing the ultra thin handset. For example, the 1,810mAh battery is now fastened to the aluminum chassis via adhesive tabs, a major change that sits somewhere between removable batteries from past iPhones and glued-in power packs from the current iPad lineup.
