The iFixit team has released a detailed chart of the iPhone 13 Pro revealing all the internal changes Apple has made to its latest iPhone. Access to the interior of the iPhone 13 Pro is very similar to that of the iPhone 12 Pro: open the screen.
The team immediately noticed that Apple had merged the layers of the digitizer and the screen. This has helped the company reduce the thickness and cost of OLED panels. Second, the handset speaker is no longer placed on the screen. This will make it easier to replace the screen, but replacing the headphones will become problematic.
To reduce the notch size by 20 percent, Apple connected all the IR transmitters for Face ID. Apple has further managed to reduce the size of the layered logic board this year. The side effect is that the SIM card is not soldered to the logic board.
As part of the demolition, the iFixit team replaced the screen between the two iPhone 13 Pro units. However, this disabled Face ID and there was an error using non-genuine Apple hardware. Their sources claim that this is a bug that Apple intends to fix in a future iOS release. This was confirmed by another YouTuber who crashed his iPhone 13 Pro.
Despite being easy to access the interior of the iPhone 13 Pro and the modularity of most components, it managed to score only 5/10 in the iFixit repairability rating – the lowest rating ever for the iPhone. This is primarily because Apple connects the software to the hardware making it difficult for third parties to repair. A company that uses a bunch of different screws, while not needed, also makes things difficult.
