[title] Final Thoughts
[* black] The iPhones 12 and 12 Pro both earn a '''6 out of 10''' on our repairability scale (10 is the easiest to repair):
[* green] Display and battery replacements remain a priority in the new iPhones' design.
[* green] Most other important components are modular and easy to access or replace.
[* yellow] Liberal use of screws is preferable to glue—but you'll have to keep them all organized, and bring out your special drivers (pentalobe, tri-point, and standoff) in addition to the standard Phillips.
[* yellow] Increased waterproofing measures complicate some repairs, but make difficult water damage repairs less likely.
[* red] Glass on front and back doubles the likelihood of drop damage—and if the back glass breaks, you'll be removing ''every'' component and replacing the entire chassis.
