With the logic board out, we can remove some of the peripheral components. We go into sensory overload as we pop out a speaker, tap our Taptic Engine, and blow through the barometric vent.

How about when you could remove the Taptic Engine without first removing the speaker? Yeah, we remember that too.

While we are happy that many components remain modular, the new layout and placement seems like a near-impossible game of pick-up sticks.

What's this little bit of plastic? Oh right, we answered that last year when we were first acquainted with this style of barometric vent.
