We’re here today to conduct some X-ray surveillance and take a quick peek inside the AirPods Max. This partial, early teardown aims to answer our most burning question: will these pricey cans be serviceable to any degree, or another e-waste disaster, like the rest of the AirPodAirPods family?
But! Coming soon: A full-fledged iFixit AirPods Max teardown, where we’ll strip these beasts down to their bits—from the Digital Crown to that unfortunate Lightning port. Keep checking back for updates in the days to come.
