iPhone SE Repairability: 6 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)

The battery is fairly easy to access, even though it's not technically "user replaceable."

The Touch ID cable could be easily ripped out of its socket if a user is not careful when opening the phone.

The iPhone SE still uses Pentalobe screws on the exterior, making it difficult to open without specialized tools.

The hardest part of any repair is knowing what to do. Thanks to the similarities to the 5s and our repair guides, repairs on the SE are already excellently documented—check it out.
