Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have only been on sale for a matter of hours, but already people are taking them apart to see what's inside.
While many of the parts are hardly a secret in Apple’s latest iPhones, that didn’t stopping repair guide website, iFixit, which was among the first to post photos and video of their iPhone 6 teardown.
The first thing quickly noticed by the website was the iPhone 6 Plus battery has a capacity of 2915 mAh, nearly double the capacity of the iPhone 5S. They also found that the iPhone 6 Plus only sports 1GB of memory, confirming previous rumors.
The smartphone’s logic board components also include the M8 motion co-processor, 16GB flash storage by South Korean manufacturer SK Hynix and a near-field communication, or NFC, chip by Dutch manufacturer NXP, which is used to power Apple Pay. The website rated the iPhone 6 Plus a 7 out of 10 for reparability, since it didn’t have a cable running from the Touch ID sensor, which hindered repairs on the iPhone 5S. But Apple was also criticized for continuing its use of proprietary Pentalobe screws, which require a special screwdriver to open.
