Noticia de última hora desde Australia:
  • Noticia de última hora desde Australia:

  • Ya había 50 personas en fila ayer alrededor de las 13:00 hora local de Australia.

  • A las 7 de la mañana había cerca de un millar de personas en fila.

  • Nuestro equipo de desmontaje tenía 53 personas en línea, y la tienda de Apple sólo tenía 40 modelos iPhone 6 Plus en stock.

  • Pero bueno, no se preocupe - Tenemos en nuestras manos un iPhone 6 Plus, y ello gracias a un maravilloso fanático de iFixit australiano llamado Ricky. Gracias Ricky!

  • Resulta que Ricky no está relacionado con este Ricky.

  • Después de nuestra pequeña aventura en Apple Store, volvimos inmediatamente a MacFixIt Australia, donde se hacía el desmontaje. Queremos dar un gran agradecimiento a nuestros buenos amigos en MacFixIt Australia por dejarnos usar su oficina. Ellos almacenan actualizaciones y accesorios Mac y iPhone, y distribuyen nuestros herramientas iFixit.

  • Próximamente encontrará en un supermercado cercano, el altavoz del iPhone 6 Plus Pop-Tarts Bluetooth / NFC.

  • El iPhone 6 Plus tiene una longitud de 158,1 mm, un ancho de 77,8 mm, y una altura de 7,1 mm. Literalmente más grande que un pastelito de caja.

    • Con 7,1 mm, es el más grueso de la nueva era de iPhones - pero el grosor es la única dimensión en la que difiere del iPhone 5s del año pasado, el cual medía 7,6 mm.

Agregar Comentario

  • Al igual que las 5s iPhone, el iPhone 6 Plus está disponible en tres colores diferentes: Plateado, Dorado, y Gris Espacial. Por supuesto que nos escogimos el dorado.

  • El iPhone 6 Plus se identifica por su número de modelo: A1524.

  • Para disgusto de algunos críticos, ambos modelos de iPhone 6 cuentan con una clara parte “sobresaliente” en la cámara. Parece que Apple no pudo disminuir el espesor del sensor de la cámara para mantenerlo a ras del resto del chasis.

  • Al igual que el HTC One M8, el iPhone 6 Plus cuenta con dos líneas de antena de plástico en la carcasa. Estas líneas ayudan a la recepción inalámbrica la cual, de otro modo, estaría bloqueada por una carcasa totalmente metálica.

I'm pretty sure the lens cover is no longer made of sapphire. Can you guys confirm that?

Joey Geraci - Contestar

Apple's technical specification explicitly states that it IS sapphire.

  • Parece que Apple se resiste a cambiar de tornillos Pentalobe por los tradicionales tornillos Phillips. Por suerte, trajimos nuestro Juego de destornilladores Pro Tech para sacar esos molestos tornillos Pentalobe.

    • Si bien estos tornillos exclusivos no son nuestros favoritos, estamos contentos de que no haber tenido que usar directamente el calor.

  • Es la hora iSclack! Esta práctica herramienta nos permite retirar fácilmente el ensamblaje de la pantalla de la carcasa trasera.

  • Procedemos con cautela, recordando la sorpresa de la última vez.

  • Como no encontramos explosivos, procedemos a abrir nuestro pequeño cofre del tesoro de oro.

  • Eliminar el cable del botón de inicio, nos recuerda el diseño más limpio (y el procedimiento de apertura más seguro) del iPhone 5 -el iPhone con la puntuación de capacidad de reparación más alta hasta la fecha.

  • Al igual que los antiguos iPhone, los cables del ensamblaje de la pantalla están asegurados sobre la placa lógica mediante un soporte de metal.

Agregar Comentario

  • Una vez retirada la pantalla, tenemos nuestro primer vistazo de las entrañas del iPhone 6 Plus.

    • El diseño interior del iPhone 6 Plus parece ser similar al del 5s, pero inmediatamente nos llama la atención el gran tamaño de la batería. Parece que el iPhone 6 Plus no se queda atrás cuando se trata de la vida de la batería.

any word on the display maker/materials?

  • El ensamblaje del botón de inicio está fijado por un soporte de metal. El retirar el soporte nos permite sacar el botón de inicio del ensamblaje del panel frontal con facilidad.

  • This design is on-par with last year's home button—modular, if a bit time-consuming to get to in the event of a repair.

If this has 1GB of RAM, it's going to be bricked like iPhone 3G, iPhone 4 with 3GS specs and 4x pixels can't run iOS7, like iPhone 4S can't handle iOS8, like iPad 1's 256MB of RAM, like iPad 3 with 4x pixels on iPad 2 specs. iPhone 5 will run iOS11 fine with 1GB and iPhone 6 Plus will lag with less available memory, it need a iphone cleanup tool.

  • La cámara frontal es parte de un ensamblaje de cables más grande, que incluye el parlante del auricular. Ambos se encuentran en el ensamblaje del panel frontal.

I'm a little confused.. Shouldn't there be mroe of a teardown on the screen? Seems the backplate on the LCD would have some ribboncable hidden beneath it?

MobiFix - Contestar

Can the front camera b removed without interupting the function of the earpiece speaker?

lzsdn - Contestar

My iphone 6 plus has a webbed screen however everything works 100%. I bought a replacement "glass front screen" off ebay and attempted to replace it yesterday. It appears that the front glass screen is glued onto the backplate. Can you confirm? I can provide an image of the screen I bought on ebay if that helps. Thanks

  • Retiro de la placa de metal del ensamblaje del panel frontal

  • In a big win for repairability, Apple has completely redesigned how the home button connects to the main board. Gone is the awkwardly short and fragile cable of the iPhone 5s days. Instead, Apple has made the effort to run the home button cable all the way to the opposite end of the phone. We're quite happy to see this improvement!

    • We can't think of a reason to extend the cable this way except to improve repairability. Thank you, Apple.

Apple is most likely primarily focused on the ease of assembly rather than ease of repair.

Hacked2123 - Contestar

Exactly. A short cable that has to be attached like the iPhone 5S means a time-robbing assembly step that's done in tight situations.

Making the cable long may cost 10 cents more in materials costs, but if it saves the worker 20 seconds of time, it increases manufacturing throughput of that worker and thus makes up for the extra cost.

  • El siguiente paso lógico es retirar la batería del iPhone 6 Plus.

  • El conector de la batería está cubierto por un soporte de metal, con el que prescindimos del uso de nuestras pinzas de metal.

  • Cerca de la parte inferior de la batería localizamos algunas lengüetas adhesivas.

  • Esto es lo que sabemos sobre las lengüetas adhesivas de la batería del iPhone: jale bien, y es muy fácil; jale mal, y es el fin del mundo.

  • Este adhesivo es similar a un adhesivo Command 3M, y cuando se usted jala la lengüeta correctamente, retira toda la tira.

Is it Possible to remove the Logic Board right after removing the screen without having to remove the battery or anything else?

  • Después de decir las palabras mágicas, la batería milagrosamente sale de la caja posterior.

  • De acuerdo con los rumores, la batería tiene una potencia de 3,82 V y 11,1 Wh de energía, para un total de 2.915 mAh -casi el doble de la capacidad de la unidad mAh 1560 en el iPhone 5s, y un poco más grande que el quemador 2800 mAh del Galaxy S5.

  • Entre la batería más grande y las mejoras en la eficiencia de energía, Apple promociona un tiempo de conversación de hasta 24 horas en 3G, y de 384 horas en espera.

  • La batería Plus es más grande que la batería de 6.91Wh, 1810 mAh del iPhone 6, lo que explica la vida más larga, a pesar de la pantalla más grande.

How much does the battery weigh ? Is the mA density per gram higher than previous generations ?

Joao Fabio Tavares - Contestar

Correct me if I am wrong - at 3.82 V and 11.1 Wh, isn't the battery more like 2905 mAh?

Valserp - Contestar

Can anyone tell me what the minimum A or mA will be to charge the phones? Curious if some 3rd party power banks I have will still work.

  • ¡Esto es nuevo! ¡Tenemos algo nuevo! El ensamblaje del vibrador se encuentra situado a la derecha de la batería, debajo de la placa lógica.

  • ¿Te acuerdas de Jimmy? Por supuesto que sí. Todo el mundo recuerda a Jimmy. Con la ayuda de Jimmy, abrimos el ensamblaje del vibrador.

  • ¡Gracias Jimmy! En el interior, encontramos una delicada gama de bobinas de cobre, unidas a un motor de vibrador.

What kinds of vibrator? Looks different from the conventional. What are the dimensions of the vibrator?

Louis Jeong - Contestar

i think its new apple made and we will see some similar in the apple watch (taptic engine)

3gfisch -

The vibrator isn't the common motor/counterweight type. It seems like a linear see-saw motor, using the magnets themselves as the moving masses.

raymondjram -

Annoyingly loud, this new vibrator. Calling it "silent" mode is now pushing it.

  • La cámara, que da hacia atrás, sale fácilmente con un par de pinzas.

  • La parte posterior de la cámara iSight está etiquetada con la inscripción DNL 432 70566F MKLAB.

  • Al igual que el iPhone 5s, el 6 Plus cuenta con una cámara que da hacia atrás de 8 MP (con 1.5μ píxeles) y una apertura de ƒ / 2,2. El 6 Plus trae dos nuevas incorporaciones: estabilización óptica de imagen, y autoenfoque de detección de fase "Focus pixel".

  • El autoenfoque de detección de fase ha estado presente por algún tiempo, pero iPhone 6 y 6 Plus no son los primeros teléfonos inteligentes que cuentan con él - el Samsung Galaxy S5 lo tuvo primero.

Invensense OIS in rear camera?

seff - Contestar

Is it possible to put 8MP camera of iPhone 6 plus in iPhone 6 ?

youplaou - Contestar

Step 17:

------------

Constant readings from the gyroscope and the M8 motion coprocessor give the iPhone 6 Plus detailed data on the movements of your shaky human hands, allowing it to compensate by rapidly moving the lens assembly. Result: sharper, clearer photos, even in low-light environments.

--------------

I am still puzzled by the fact that both models have the M8 and MP67B chips. So, why do you say that OIS is only in the 6+ model?

DoubleBagel - Contestar

Is there a small strap by the rear facing camera that is necessary for functionality? if so what is the part number or id? Thanks

  • While it may not look like much here, the updates found in the iPhone 6 Plus's camera (along with the increased storage) have piqued the interest of amateur and indie filmmakers. We just hope this camera is ready for its closeup...

Metal shield, 6 pins. What is is Captain!

Evil Otaku - Contestar

  • Una mirada más profunda al interior de la cámara que da hacia atrás.

  • Debajo del lente vemos el sensor de la cámara.

  • La característica principal que diferencia a esta cámara de la estándar en el iPhone 6 es la 'estabilización de imagen óptica -una tecnología que ya hemos visto antes. El elemento del lente de la izquierda está anidado en una pequeña rejilla de metal, impulsada de un lado a otro por las bobinas electromagnéticas que rodean el sensor a la derecha.

  • Las lecturas constantes del giroscopio y del co-procesador de movimiento M8 le dan al iPhone 6 Plus una información detallada de los movimientos de sus temblorosas manos humanas, lo que le permite compensar moviendo el ensamblaje del lente rápidamente. Resultado: fotos más nítidos, más claras, incluso en lugares con poca luz.

  • Es hora de retirar la placa lógica que está sujeta firmemente a la carcasa posterior de la caja mediante unos tornillos.

  • Pero antes de hacerlo, nos recuerdan que tenemos que desconectar un conector de antena de la parte posterior de la placa lógica

  • Avago A8010 PA + FBARs de banda ultra alta

  • Módulo amplificador de potencia TriQuint TQF6410 3G EDGE

  • Conjunto de giroscopio InvenSense MP67B de 6 ejes y acelerómetro

Can you tell if the A8 was manufactured by Samsung or TSMC?

Big business. For instance Invensense in iPhones for first time ever. If they are in the 6 also, that is 200+million chips sold over the next year. Revenues/Cash Flow up.

From the block diagram it seems the AS3923 is connecting to the antenna not the NFC controller.

On the lower-left corner of the front of the speaker (second image, can't tell if front or back, guessing front), you can see what looks like a QR code and a serial number, but that's just out of focus enough so it's impossible to make out.

  • Hemos matado al gigante. El iPhone 6 Plus obtuvo un respetable siete de diez, una mejora con respecto al iPhone 5s. He aquí por qué:

  • Continuando con la tendencia de la serie de iPhone 5, el ensamblaje de la pantalla sale primero del teléfono, lo que simplifica las reparaciones de la pantalla.

  • La batería es fácil de acceso. Retirarla requiere un destornillador pentalobe exclusivo y conocimiento de la técnica de eliminación del adhesivo, pero no es difícil.

  • El cable del sensor de huellas digitales está re-enrutado, solucionando así un gran problema de reparación con los iPhone 5s y hace que el teléfono sea mucho más seguro de abrir. (En los 5, el cable se rompe fácilmente si un usuario no tiene cuidado al abrir el teléfono.)

  • El iPhone 6 Plus sigue utilizando tornillos patentados Pentalobe en el exterior, lo que requiere un destornillador especial para retirarlos.

  • Apple no comparte información de reparación para el iPhone 6 Plus con los talleres de reparación independientes o con los consumidores.

5s? Pretty sure this was a 6 plus? =)

MobiFix - Contestar

Whoops... fixed! :)

Luke Soules -

OK, using pentalobe screws is kind of annoying, but you guys sell the driver for $8. Given how smoothly the disassembly went it doesn't seem fair to give a red dot (and maybe a drop from 8 to 7) for the requirement of an $8 part when repairing an $800 device.

The part no. of SDRAM (F8164A3PM-GD-F) can be found on the right of Apple A8 SOC.

According to the datasheet, F is the product family (Mobile LPDDR3 SDRAM); A is the power supply interface (1.8V and 1.2V); 3 is the revision; PM is the package code.

This SDRAM should be a customized product with customized package (the SDRAM in Apple A7 SOC is F8164A1PD while the standard part no. is F8164A1MA).

Android can do more at once, its not an outdated method, its flexibility. iOS and WP are simpler, which suits their userbase..

chrisM -

He's right. Java requires an absurd amount of RAM since it is an interpreted language, meaning that your phone has to recompile an application every few seconds! But iPhone runs on C++ which is super conservative with ram and in all honesty, all iPhone apps only need at max 312mb of ram while Android uses the whole lot.

Any idea what the layer count of the circuit board is?

So is this USB 3.0 capable?

The USB 3 extension, USB Type-C will attempt to bring USB 3 up to the level of the Lightning connector.

Step 17:

------------

Constant readings from the gyroscope and the M8 motion coprocessor give the iPhone 6 Plus detailed data on the movements of your shaky human hands, allowing it to compensate by rapidly moving the lens assembly. Result: sharper, clearer photos, even in low-light environments.

--------------

I am still puzzled by the fact that both models have the M8 and MP67B chips. So, why do you say that OIS is only in the 6+ model?

The best part about the iPhone 6 plus is it's size. I think Apple are really out there satisfying two variants of customers - those who prefer large screens and those who are comfortable with the smaller screens. Also, I kinda found this awesome site that is already giving them away in Dubai before everyone else. You guys should check em' out - http://www.alshop.com/apple-iphone-6

Can you do an itemised list of all the components so we know how much it costs to manufacture botth iPhone 6 & plus.

teradil - Contestar

Wait.. There is no strengthening frame in this thing, they are relying on the aluminium back for strength? Is that why there are reports of so many bent and damaged phones? Thats just bad design.

@ifixit: what's the thickness of the rear case enclosure?

Homer - Contestar

Why are people so caught up on the RAM? It's like assuming that a V6 engine is going to be better than a turbo charged 4-cylinder solely because it has more cylinders. It's all about what you can do with it. Yeah, the iPhone 6 only has 1GB of RAM but with Apple's know-how it's like getting the speed & performance of a V8 but with the gas mileage of a 4-cylinder engine. It's win-win. It's great that your phone has 4 or more GB of RAM but that doesn't stop my 1GB phone from blowing your battery covers off in the Geek Bench 1/4 mile.

Apple's website seems to suggest the various flavours of iPhone 6 Plus have support from 3 up to 6 separate mobile standards (A1522 vs. A1524 vs. CDMA vs. GSM flavours). From the chips you saw in the teardown, do you think the various support indicates hardware variations for each model? Or do you think the hardware is the same for all models, and the flavours are a result of the regional firmware installed?

Nico - Contestar

Anyway to tell the clock speed difference between iPhone 6 and 6 plus ..bcoz 6 plus has such more pixels to deal with...so I think speed should be different

Sahil - Contestar

is that the same touch screen controller from Texas Instruments they are using since the first iPhone ever???

They know all we care about is the RAM. But its been largely already confirmed to be 1 gig, probably 99% confirmed. http://www.crazydeals.com

Question - My logic board needs to be replaced on my Iphone 6+. This is going to sound really stupid, but. I have a 5C, could I switch the logic board with the 5C and possibly have the 5C run the 6+ display? If not, that's cool it's a long shot completely.

Is anyone familiar with the " field test" mode which displays received signal strength in dBm? If so I'm trying to determine which module in the assembly performs this function.

Can you put the insides from a iPhone 6 into a 6 plus?

David locke - Contestar

Did anyone answer your question? I have been extremely curious about that because I have both phones. I've been looking everywhere but not official answer

Sare -

No, you can’t. The components may be similar-looking, but they are not compatible.

Hola, he adquirido una bateria nueva en ifixit para el iphone 6 plus y queria saber si despues de haberla instalado en el telefono, hay que reiniciarlo o conectarlo a itunes?
