Holy !&&* this is a awesome guide!
Interesting to see Apple putting in a interesting amount of effort …
But iFixit, far as I know, had not use a hot air gun so far…
Time to use one of those :P
That would be the guide to take off the upper DISPLAY ASSEMBLY, not the screen.
I was expecting you to bring iOpeners and get the actual glass LCD out …
But it’s a good guide.
It’s much better that it’s iPhone 8 siblings….
I mean, once you got all the screwdrivers you need, all you have to worry about is the way to pull off that display.
Lightning connector IS still modular. Unlike the other *cough* iPad *cough* lineup.
Without any evidence (from multimeter or “experiment results”) I reason it is a 1.2V cell, type AAAAA.
From the flange on the battery to the left and the suspecious look of the supposed contact points for it.
*Very quickly* was a bad unit for charge time. 1 hour full? 30 min full? (FULL, not able to use again)
if 1 hour full then charge current is 93MA. 30 minute charge is 186MA, so on and so forth.
I guess Apple had this thing on 1C charge (93MAH—>1 hour @ 93MA). 2C charge will just wreck this battery.
no it is probably not hot glue.
But hmmm isopropyl alcohol…thanks for that tip @mfx
on the other hand, yes, having the ability to having the entire thing be glue-free smells really good.
Maybe you can just prepare a beaker full of that and dump the entire thing (case, left pod, right pod) in and put it on a … the shaking plate?
Well, you can’t really expect one to be able to fit everything inside, without having them look like tangled…spiderwebs.
EVEN UNDER THIS CONDITION HAD THEY FEATURED A CONNECTOR!!!
but the other ones (IR senseor and stuff) are not as friendly, now.
I didn’t see the antenna for the wifi thingy…actually, did we even see the wifi chip in this teardown???
Well, the antenna is clearly visible in the last pictures of this teardown, when they hang around loosely around the empty frame.
Overall it was a decent *laptop* that was repair-wise ACCEPTABLE, with screws, still, holding most things down.
That array of connectors for keyboard and stuff should add point to the score of 2.
Overall, it shouldn’t get a 2. Yes, you can’t get the battery out of there without destroying it (or practically burning it so it will be hot and soften the glue), but when you do need to get the battery out there it is pretty much dead, so you can just wrestle it out, and put LIGHT ADHESIVE (opposite of Samsung’s patches) for convenience.
Personally, I’d rate it 6. Because only the display was lagging off.
. n .
I hate those new, adhesive-bound new “thin“ models. I think a 0.5 inch thick “brick” would be better.
Although, one had hever made a great touchscreen held with screws…
SUSPECIOUS BLANK SPACE
Was not expecting that to be blank…
Well, clearly you guys didn’t buy one for yourself and take that apart (because I happened to have a fan occupying such place)
So, strongly NOT advertised to play games on your Surface Pro (especially the low wattage ones)…unless you put some ice pack on top of the alumium case. Ice packs work just fine.
I HATE the guy that put the finger print sensor on the phone’s back. The person that came up with this MUST have his head bumped, or he do not know what he is doing.
The speaker look pretty good for me. Built in air-duct and seal and modular and blah blah blah…
