AirPods Max Teardown
Introduction
We’re here today for some X-ray surveillance and a quick peek inside the AirPods Max to see if we can answer our most burning question: will these be serviceable to any degree, or another e-waste disaster like the other AirPods in the family?
Then, coming soon, a full-fledged iFixit AirPods Max teardown where we’ll strip them down to their bits—from the Digital Crown to that unfortunate Lightning port.
