Looks like sideways-opening iPhones are here to stay. Apple surprised us with this little trick on the 7 Plus, but by now it's standard.
This single bracket covers every logic board connector—we've never seen this kind of connector density.
And once again, we're faced with tri-point screws standing sentry over any repairs once you get past the pentalobe screws guarding the door.
Something tells us Apple doesn't really want us (or you) tinkering in here.
