iPhone 14 Pro Max Inner Components Exposed And Analyzed

Just days before the new iPhone 14 models are anticipated to start shipping to customers, a new video has provided our first peek inside of the iPhone 14 Pro Max, revealing an L-shaped battery, improved placements of screen parts, larger cameras, and more. The early breakdown, carried out by PBKreviews, reveals an interior layout that resembles that of the iPhone 13 Pro Max from the previous year, but with a few modifications. The battery in this year’s iPhone 14 Pro Max is L-shaped like it was in the previous model, and, as previously reported by MacRumors, it is a little smaller than it was. 

iPhone 14 Pro Max Teardown Video Is Available Now

Apple claims that in order to better regulate heat, it has updated the internal designs of all variants of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The primary motherboard is covered by a metal plate that could have been better designed to disperse heat, however, this teardown makes no clear mention of such alterations. As seen in today’s breakdown, the display’s back has a graphite coating that reduces heat.

The breakdown also allows us to get a better look at the new notch replacement, which consists of pill- and hole-shaped cutouts that were digitally combined to create Dynamic Island within iOS. Apple has, for the first time on an iPhone, positioned the proximity sensor below the display to make room for the TrueDepth camera system and get rid of the notch in favor of the pill-shaped cutout that was digitally produced instead. The proximity sensor, which recognizes when the phone is resting on a desk, in your pocket, or even being held while on a call, was previously placed in the notch along with Face ID’s componentry on earlier iPhones.

The deconstruction also provides a closer look at the earpiece and improved back cameras. After the handsets start shipping to customers, iFixit is anticipated to finish a more thorough teardown of all models of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro. The deconstruction by iFixit will provide a more thorough knowledge of the internal changes made to the most recent iPhones.
