It’s everyone’s favorite time of the year: new iPhone teardown wallpapers season! Of course that means we have the relevant teardowns, too, but if you’re just here for the goods, scroll down and peep not one, not two, but four brand new iPhone wallpapers for your 12-series iPhones. That’s internals for the iPhone 12 mini and 12 Pro Max, as well as X-rays (courtesy of Creative Electron) thereof, just in case you have both phones—lucky dog. If you have the iPhone 12 and/or 12 Pro, we’ve got you covered there, too.
After applying these sweet, sweet internals backgrounds (maybe with the X-ray as a lockscreen?) and customizing your widgets to match, you may find yourself asking, “Should I learn more about these internals?” I mean it’s inevitable that someone, probably my mom, will ask you what that dark ring is on the X-ray wallpaper, or maybe ask why the battery is so small on the mini. Don’t worry we’ve got your back. Time to bone up on some teardown tech! Here’s the list of teardowns you’ll need to 100% this fall teardown speedrun.
iPhone 12 mini: A full step-by-step teardown, featuring US and EU editions, to walk you through that little battery, mmwave antennas, and teeny taptic engine. Plus a video version, is the movie better than the book? You’ll have to watch, then comment to let us know!
iPhone Pro Max: A lightning step-by-step teardown (coming soon!) to cover the bases that remain after the other three teardowns. Also, catch up on the wicked Pro Max livestream pitting our semi-pro Teardownist Kay-Kay against a Pro-quality Phone. Spoiler Alert: she rocks it.
iPhone 12 and 12 Pro: We also tore down the iPhones 12 and 12 Pro what feels simultaneously like three years ago and yesterday. Enjoy the time dilation with us by watching the 12 Pro teardown video, while reading the combo teardown, and then hit up our (now not-so) Live iPhone 12 teardown. Oh and get a dose of our latest Apple repair woes with our iPhone 12 camera replacement tests.
This season has not stopped giving, and we’ve got more teardown action on the way, but if we already missed your favorites, let us know in the comments! You can also let us know we’re doing a good job, we’d love to hear it.
