The excellent news is that the telephone is comparatively straightforward to restore, no less than some parts are. Since this can be a US mannequin, there isn’t any card tray for a bodily SIM. Because of this the very first thing to come back off the telephone is the show.
There’s a steel plate that helps preserve the assorted cables firmly hooked up to the two-layer motherboard and likewise acts as a warmth spreader. After that’s gone, one can begin disconnecting the display and the battery too (the battery is marked 16.93Wh, by the way in which).

Attending to the cameras does require digging out a number of extra parts. One fascinating factor to come back out of the video is that evidently the brand new front-facing digital camera has OIS (you possibly can see it on the 3:40 mark). Apple added autofocus for the primary time, but it surely made no point out of optical stabilization, the official specs solely says “Auto picture stabilization”. That is one thing value investigating.
The display and battery come off simply sufficient • The satellite tv for pc module?
One other fascinating improvement is a mysterious new element – it’s presumably a part of the brand new SOS over satellite tv for pc performance and it takes up fairly a little bit of house on the motherboard. Contemplating that the iPhone 14 Professional Max is mainly the identical dimension because the 13 Professional Max, Apple needed to put in a variety of work to get every part to suit.
