iPhone 6 s teardown
iFixit, how could it be otherwise, has already put his claws up iPhone 6s and has ruthlessly gutted. This famous company operations dismantles any device to see what is in their bellies, and tell us how difficult it would repair it with what they call “repairability index” and, depending on this score, anyone could repair the device in question or only the most handyman should try. The most important work with the iPhone 6s iFixit is what confirmed, as its battery is 1715mAh, which is a reduction of 5% compared to riding the iPhone 6s.

They have also found the A9 processor, who if anyone says otherwise is 14nm, which would allow the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to be 30% more efficient and require less energy to operate, resulting in a lower final consumption . Apple says that the autonomy of the new models is the same as the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.


Once inside, iFixit found the following components (no surprises):

  • Apple A9 SoC + APL0898 LPDDR4 Samsung 2GB RAM
  • MDM9635M Qualcomm LTE Cat. 6 Modem
  • InvenSense MP67B 6-Axis Gyroscope and Accelerometer Combo

  • TriQuint TQF6405 Power Amplifier Module
  • Skyworks SKY77812 Power Amplifer Module
  • Avago AFEM-8030 Power Amplifier Module
  • Two ICs in front of the main board manual split: 57A6CVI and Qualcomm QFE1100 Envelope Tracking IC
  • THGBX5G7D2KLFXG Toshiba 16 GB 19 nm NAND Flash
  • 339S00043 Universal Scientific Industrial Wi-Fi Module
  • 66V10 NXP NFC Controller (vs. 65V10 found in iPhone 6)
  • Apple / Dialog 338S00120 Power Management IC
  • Apple / Cirrus Logic Audio IC 338S00105
  • Qualcomm PMD9635 Power Management IC
  • Skyworks SKY77357 Power Amplifier Module (likely an iteration of the SKY77354)
  • Murata 240 Front-End Module
  • RF Micro Devices RF5150 Antenna Switch
  • NXP 1610A3
  • Apple / Cirrus Logic Audio IC 338S1285
  • Texas Instruments Power Management IC 65730AOP
  • Qualcomm WTR3925 Radio Frequency Transceiver

Repairability Index: 7/10
According to iFixit, the blame for the reduction of the battery is the engine táptico, who will provide a physical response in the form of vibration every time we use one of the special pressures 3D Touch. 5% is not much, but most users prefer to have more battery with a thicker device.
