  1. Bug? iFixit muses in teardown of Cupertino's top-tier mobe The iPhone 12 Pro Max represents the top end of Apple's latest smartphone lineup. This is a tier that historically has differentiated itself not just by its price, but also by its camera, which Cupertino insists can produce shots that rival those taken on professional kit. A recent teardown from iFixit gives some weight to these shutterbug creds, highlighting a dramatically upsized sensor as well as new image stabilisation tech. The primary wide-angle camera sensor on the iPhone 12 Pro M
  2. The repair specialists at iFixit have completed teardowns of the M1-equipped MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, noting that not much has changed in their design beyond the new chip. Apple's 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, along with a new Mac mini, represent the first wave of Apple Silicon machines. Though they share the same basic design as their predecessors, they come equipped with Apple's new M1 chipset. The trio of devices look pretty much the same from the outside. And, according to iFixit, they look pretty much the same on the i
  3. A far more repairable design than older Surfaces Microsoft’s new Surface Pro X computer may not have taken the world by storm as a Windows-on-ARM showcase, but as iFixit’s teardown reveals, the new hardware design is groundbreaking in other respects by being far easier to repair than other Surfaces. When Microsoft announced the Surface Pro X, it highlighted the removable SSD, which is hidden behind a pop-up door alongside the SIM card and can be easily removed by taking out a single screw. But there are plenty of other changes Microsoft h
  4. The new inspection reveals Samsung's additional display safeguards. iFixit pulled its first Galaxy Fold teardown after Samsung scrapped the phone's April launch to improve its durability. Now that the foldable has finally reached stores, though, it's ready for take two. The DIY repair site has posted a teardown for the revised Galaxy Fold that reveals both the known innards and, crucially, the additional protections for that folding screen. The teardown crew noted that Samsung faced a cle
  5. At least Apple will recycle them iFixit has completed its traditional teardown of Apple’s latest AirPods and, just as Apple promised, it’s bad news for repairs. The organization awarded the noise-canceling buds a big fat zero repairability score, noting that their “non-modular, glued-together design and lack of replacement parts makes repair both impractical and uneconomical.” That’s the same score as both versions of the original AirPods. This means that once the battery in your $249 AirPods Pro degrades and eventually dies, there’s no chance of rep
  6. The new 10.2-inch iPad uses repurposed features from previous products, according to iFixit. The new iPad uses an iPhone 7 processor. Apple's latest iPad "mostly inherits hand-me-down features" from previous iPhones and iPads, according to a teardown report by iFixit. Despite many "repurposed" features, though, including an iPhone 7 A10 Fusion processor, iFixit called the update to Apple's tablet a "solid incremental improvement." The 10.2-inch iPad, unveiled during Apple's iPhone 11 event earlier in September, starts at $329 (£349, AU$529) and
  7. Tons of ingress points allow dirt to enter the device and damage the display. It might be delayed for at least a month, but Samsung's futuristic Galaxy Fold has hit the iFixit Teardown table. How exactly did iFixit get its hands on a phone that has never been for sale and has had all its review units recalled? It's probably best not to think too much about it. What matters is that we get to see the insides! Between this teardown and an earlier blog post, iFixit has been building a compelling theory for why the Fold has been dying an early death for some reviewers. The problem
  8. Repairing the phone won’t be easy. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G will be available online and in stores tomorrow. Just in time, the folks at iFixit are sharing a peek inside the new device. Most notably, the phone borrows one major design queue from the iPhone, and it won't be super easy to repair. Like the iPhone X, the Note 10+ positions the motherboard at the top half of the phone. While this allows the battery to be wider, it requires cables between mother and daughte
