One of the things that has become a bit of a ritual after every Apple product launch is a teardown, and it’s almost always first recorded by the folks over at iFixit. The next device to go through the full treatment is the larger of the new iPhones, and this iPhone 6 Plus teardown has revealed some critical details such as the battery size.
First of all, the new battery is 2,915 mAh in size. That’s almost twice what can be found within the iPhone 5s, which explains why early reviews praised it so much – we’ll have the 6 Plus in our labs in just a few hours, and we’ll be delivering our impressions on the battery life as soon as we can, so stay tuned for that.
Apart from the battery, components such as the processor, modem, and flash memory chip have been detailed: there’s an Apple A8 APL1011 processor, a Qualcomm MDM9625M LTE modem, a SKhynix H2JTDG8UD1BMS flash memory chip, a Broadcom BCM5976 touchscreen controller, and an NXP 65V10 NFC chip (with a secure element) solely for Apple Pay purposes.
Stay tuned for in-depth coverage from Pocketnow of Apple’s hottest new devices as the day goes on, as we’ll be putting out lots of content for you to digest.
