iPhone 11 Teardown—Ultra Wide Camera Revealed!

we ended last week with a live tear down of the iPhone 11 Pro and we’re starting this week back at the teardown table for iPhone 11 the iPhone 11 has a ton of upgrades but not enough for it to be called a pro iPhone what changes await us inside let’s tear it down and find out according to Apple the iPhone 11 has a slight increase in water resistance it can now survive a maximum depth of 2 meters for up to 30 minutes up from 1 meter on the 10r but the opening procedure doesn’t seem to be any different or more difficult opening the iPhone 11 up reveals a device resembling a 10 are more than an 11 pro the battery is rectangular and only has one connector but like its pro siblings the xi cables are aligned on one side this year and it’s got a fancy new double decker logic board the iPhone Elevens display is a 6.1 inch liquid Retina display with a resolution of 1792 by 828 and a pixel density of 326 PPI one of the most compelling upgrades the iPhone 11 received is its dual camera system not only does the 11 have an upgraded 12 megapixel wide-angle camera it also has an additional 12 megapixel ultra-wide camera the upgrades to the camera sensors mean faster shutter speeds a wider ISO range and night mode capability to reveal the chips on the logic board you have to desolder the stacked boards once they’re apart you can get a look at the a13 Bionic chip layered over what we’re pretty sure is 4 gigabytes of SK Hynix made Ram we still need to remove the speaker and taptic engine to comfortably get access to the battery removal strips but let’s be happy we have battery removal strips at all these are 6 strips securing the battery to the rear case all with cutouts to avoid covering the wireless charging coils underneath this battery is slightly smaller than the one we found on the iPhone 10 R but it has 7 percent more capacity it’s rated at eleven point nine one watt hours three point eight three volts and unlike the battery we found on the 11pro it has only one connector if the second connector we found in the 11pro was in fact related to bilateral wireless charging it seems like the iPhone 11 was never meant to have that feature with our iPhone 11 fully disassembled it’s time to talk their pair bility the iPhone 11 scored a 6 out of 10 and here’s why on the upside the prioritize display makes replacement of this critical component easier than another devices display swaps don’t require too much hardware swapping to maintain face ID we prefer screws and non-adhesive fasteners / glue but tiny proprietary screws are still hostile to repair the hi IP rating means your phone is better protected but these measures also complicate repair and on the downside front and back blast doubles the chance of breakage and the rear glass can only be replaced with a full case swap
