The logic determining what makes a smartphone “Pro” is still up in the air, but one thing's for sure: you don’t have to be a pro to open an iPhone these days.

Ever since the iPhone 6S, the procedure for getting past an iPhone’s screen adhesive has been the same: heat, slice, and repeat. Just watch out for stray cables!

As on the new Pro phones, the screen assembly's cables are aligned to one side, but not as tightly and safely grouped together.

All that ease, despite the improved IP68 water and dust resistance over the IP67-rated iPhone XR. Very nice! (Though, if we're being honest, we're in love with another phone that makes things even easier, albeit without the water resistance.)
