Which carrier phone is this

deepu272 - Antwort

The iPhone 7 plus is much deferent than iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S. The lack of antenna lines especial at the jet black version, the lack of earphone jack, the dual lenses and dual speaker make it distinguishable. I personally like it very much and I will soon buy the iPhone 7 plus jet black 256GByte model. The only thing I dislike is that I won't be able to store my iOS apps on my hard disk as I am doing with my old jailbroken iphone 6 plus. So the 256 Gbytes are more than necessary.

"The only thing I dislike is that I won't be able to store my iOS apps on my hard disk..."

You can do that using iTunes without jailbreaking. You always could.

Das iPhone 7 Plus ist minimal größer als sein Vorgänger (158,2 x 77,9 x 7,3 mm vs. 158,1 x 77,9 x 7,3 mm) – und mit 188 Gramm (vs. 192 Gramm des 6S Plus)  trotzdem leichter. Hoffentlich hat Apple nichts Wichtiges weggelassen. Das 7 Plus hat eine neue Modellnummer bekommen: A1785. Für die Kunden von der dunklen Seite der Macht bietet Apple neuerdings eine Schwarze und eine leicht zerkratzende Diamantschwarze Version des iPhone 7 Plus, zusätzlich zu den Originalen Silber, Gold und Rosegold.

  • Außerdem verschwinden die unansehnlichen Antennenlinien und das 7 Plus bekommt ein zarteres Erscheinungsbild.

  • Die wahrscheinlich auffälligste Änderung ist der Lightning zu 3,5 mm Kopfhörer-Adapter, der dem Gerät beiliegt. Es wird uns einiges an Tapferkeit kosten, über die Kopfhörerbuchse hinwegzukommen.

Quote: "6.63 oz (vs. the 6s Plus at 6.77 mm)"

I know you meant, "6.77 _oz_"!

biowizard - Antwort

have you done a baby teardown on the baby adapter ? Does it have a DAC in it ? If so which one?

Jasraj Vaidya - Antwort

The DAC is in the iPhone. How it's for the speakers too.

George A. -

No, it's not me, it's "baby adapter" Dongles were a thing of the past, and hated them as much as they will be hated now.

scottwilkins - Antwort

The dimensions of the iPhone 7 Plus are identical to those of its predecessor, at 158.2 mm × 77.9 mm × 7.3 mm—and yet it's slightly lighter, at 6.63 oz (vs. the 6s Plus at 6.77 oz). Hopefully Apple didn't remove anything important.... They removed the headphone jack and assembly.

Emma - Antwort

I have no courage. I also have no Apple Music because I have no reason to trust Apple with my content.

How about 3.5mm powered accessories like the square? Is square going to ante up for the lightning interface?

refd123 - Antwort

I don't believe that the jet black color is so prone to scratches. I generally baby my phone and protect them with cases and glass membranes. So it's not a real issue. The lack of earphone jack isn't a problem. I bet that every manufacturer very soon will produce earphones with lighting jack. Those with very expensive conventional earphones will find the earphone adapter annoying but that isn't a big issue. After all when you are buying a phone at 800 dollars you can spent 100 dollars for decent earphones. Apple as always is removing parts from its iPhones. People forget that the earphone jack of the first generation iphone was small and deep inside. It didn't allow many earphones.

Agnostos Gnostos - Antwort

Do the new antenna lines in the 7 plus iPhone improve the signal reception in poor transmission areas

gaylestan - Antwort

@dave.

"I have no courage. I also have no Apple Music because I have no reason to trust Apple with my content."

Apple music is a subscription streaming service. You don't own the content. So you don't need to trust them.

I keep my own content on iTunes match. I do trust them. But it's all safe on my Mac, and backed up too.

alex - Antwort

@refd123

'How about 3.5mm powered accessories like the square? Is square going to ante up for the lightning interface?"

The square works off the headphone jack. If they use it to spec, then it should work off the adapter.

alex - Antwort

Don't know about A1785,

but on Apple's iPHone specs page they specifiy two 7+ model #'s as A1661 & A1784.

One of them supports CDMA, the other does not.

  • Als Einstieg können wir sehen, dass die Kopfhörerbuchse rausgeflogen ist, um Platz für die Taptic Engine zu machen.

  • Bei näherer Betrachtung fällt ein Lautsprechergitter auf, dessen Zweck ... keiner ist? Interessant...

  • Außerdem können wir das dritte Auge des Kamera-Arrays vom iPhone 7 Plus sehen. Welche Weisheiten und Visionen enthält es? Wir finden es raus!

Please x-ray the Lightning to 3.5mm jack adapter so we can see if there's a DAC and AMP built into the cable. Otherwise you're going to have to cut it open, and that won't be pretty.

chris - Antwort

I second this!

Dan Parsons -

I wonder if you could use the Lightning to mini jack adapter on one of the older iPhones as a way around having to replace the mini jack when it goes within the phone.

Dan - Antwort

The adapter's store page lists it as compatible with every iOS device with a lightning port. Looks like that should work.

Chaz Larson - Antwort

The adapter will work with all devices running iOS 10+

You can also use the lightning headphones with any iOS 10+ device as well.

As iOS 10+ only supports the lightning connector they will work with and are backwards compatible with any capable of running it.

paul - Antwort

The X-Ray photos that iFixit publicly show are fantastic. I don't think that Apple will be happy with such deep intervention into its hardware. However I am sure that all major phone manufactures are using similar technics of inspection.

Agnostos Gnostos - Antwort

Well it looks like the Mini to Lightning adapter has its own DAC! Here's a teardown: iPhone 7 headphone dongle boasts amazing insides

Dan - Antwort

  • Apple hat zwar die Kopfhörerbuchse entfernt, aber bleibt seinen Pentalobes treu. Zwei der mittlerweile bekannten Schrauben bewachen je eine Seite des Lightning Connectors.

  • Voller Spannung isclacken wir das rosegoldene Äußere und müssen zusätzlich einige Kraft aufwenden, um die großen Mengen Kleber zu lösen.

    • Der Klebestreifen, der das 7 Plus versiegelt, ist deutlich stärker als beim Vorgänger. Ist dies das erste Anzeichen des Spritzwasser-Schutzes?

Does it make sense noting the best location to set the iSclack onto the iPhone so not to rip the cable connection shown in Step5 below? Or the best pattern to lift the cover off.

Dan - Antwort

Apple could easily have avoid screws on iPhone like it does with iPads and iPod touch. This is an indications that Apple wants their phone to be serviceable by experienced foreigners. But not easily ben opened by ordinary users. The adhesive strip is a good idea. I wouldn't like an iPhone with a wobbling battery inside.

Agnostos Gnostos - Antwort

It's not waterproof, it's water-resistant. Similar, but not the same.

Aristarco Palacios - Antwort

Can anyone confirm are the pentalobe screws identical (diameter and shaft length) to those of the 6 plus's?

Cooper Chase - Antwort

How are the pentalobe screws protected from water? Is there rubber gusket?

Apple - Antwort

Was ist das für ein Chaos? Das 7 Plus öffnet sich zur Seite, obwohl die bekannten Klammern an der Oberseite des Geräts (wie bei Vorgängermodellen) das Display ausrichten. Wir hatten Glück und haben das Displaykabel Mitte rechts nicht zerrissen.  Dankenswerterweise hat das Kabel etwas Spiel.

    • Bei subtilen Designänderungen wie dieser sind Reparaturanleitungen besonders wertvoll.

  • Beim Öffnen des 7 Plus kommt einiger schwarzer und weißer Klebstoff zum Vorschein, der einmal ganz um den Rand verläuft.

    • Unser Verdacht ist, dass diese Klebrigkeit im Pinguin-Look ein Teil von Apples Bemühungen zum Spritzwasserschutz darstellt. Vielleicht haben Apples Ingenieurs-Nasen aber auch einfach eine Vorliebe für Kleber entwickelt.

Interesting, threes no button, yet it looks like there is? and the metal peice on the side transfers teh taptic? ... Can you go more into this?

That's the TouchID sensor.

Is the White gasket material less or more sticky than the Black? It does look like its thicker than the black (has more viscosity)?

You guys act like APPLE hasnt already said that the new iPhone has waterproofing. Which they did and there are plenty of videos showing it works

Jarrett Moering - Antwort

I like your writing style! ..."Then again, Apple's engineers might just really love glue." And then a fanboi moron adds comments! Fake Geniuses' would never learn!

orion2000 - Antwort

The Glue is silicone ferrite add with adhesive to deflect Cellular transmission effectively

Loli Pop - Antwort

The iSclack is more than necessary. This cables can be broken easily. One of the reasons I love iFixit. From my experience all iPhones since iphone 4 were a little waterproofing. I didn't have problems with lightly rain or with wet hands or very sweaty faces. Now with the new iPhone I will use it safely at the beach. However waterproofing is a subjective issue. The iphone 7 is less waterproof than the second Apple watch.

Agnostos Gnostos - Antwort

What Apple Enginners love the most was screw. They take all size of screws, probably they have to get used to different 2 different bosses. Lol...

HSY3 HSY4 - Antwort

  • Innen finden wir eine Armee der Finsternis von mutigen Tri-Point Schrauben, die die Kabelabdeckung des Batterieanschlusses und zwei der Displaykabel bewachen.

  • Vor einem Jahr riskierten wir etwas und fügten den Bit für die Apple Watch zu unserem Toolkit hinzu. Was für ein Glück!

  • Eine zweite Kompanie Tri-Point Schrauben sichert die Abdeckung des längeren oberen Displaykabels.

  • Tri-Point Schrauben sind ungewöhnlich. Man könnte das Argument anbringen, dass sie sich nicht so leicht abnutzen, aber da wir sie nicht in vielen iGeräten sehen glauben wir nicht an einen mechanischen Vorteil. Es geht recht eindeutig darum, die beiden häufigsten Reparaturen zu verhindern: Batterie- und Displayaustausch.

  • Wir zücken unsere Waffen Schraubendreher und zwingen die Klammer zur Kapitulation – die Mission ins Herz des iPhone 7 Plus geht weiter.

There is space for audio jack up there!

victortaykw - Antwort

Audio Jack and Water Resistance strike me as being somewhat mutually counterproductive. I, for one, am very happy to see the poxy 3.5mm Jack consigned to history.

biowizard -

Another possibility for the reasoning behind the tri-point screws is that Apple knows these are the most common screws to need to be removed, and chose to go with something less likely to strip for their "geniuses" to work with.

Bryan Schwartz - Antwort

The Phillips screw is a terrible screw drive design. According to McFeeley's, it was invented and promoted because the driver will cam out when torque increases. I'm skeptical about the motivation, but Phillips screws cam out or strip out with alarming frequency, especially in smaller sizes. I would love to never see or use a Phillips screw.

If you want to ding Apple for picking obscure drivers, fine. But you should also ding them, and everyone else, when they use the horrible Phillips screws.

Kredanta - Antwort

Then why not use Torx?

Chris Prendergast -

The reason tri-lobe screws are used is because a Torx drive socket on a screw that small wouldn't work. The tri-lobe is like a Torx profile and has the same advantages, but with two less lobes. In addition, tri-lobes are used because it can be put on a screw with a thinner head, where other drive types wouldn't work. The thinnest screw heads (0.3mm and below) require tri-lobe.

Do people really think nefarious apple engineers are intentionally trying to keep users from doing repairs? They could care less. Besides, if anyone's gotten that far, a screw type with an uncommon head is not going to stop them.

John Connor -

Bryan is right. They are tri-point because they are the most common to remove and therefore you don't want to strip them. Why all the screws aren't tri-point I'm not sure of.

Shaun Stelley - Antwort

But what size of tri lobe is it? Like apple watch y0.6?

Piotr - Antwort

I never could understand why Apple is bothering with so many different type of screws. At the age of ebay and iFixit every screw can be opened safely. Maybe another method to discourage users that don't know iFixit to mess with the the internal hardware

Agnostos Gnostos - Antwort

Lets add more screw variant each new release....

taexyz - Antwort

The iphone, has wireless ear buds; good thing I dont own one bc they make alot of money on me as I lose litle things like that

Aaron Bouchard - Antwort

Be careful on this part, I did rip one of the cables in the middle. There are actually 2 and the one I broke was for the home button...

Brent Thompson - Antwort

An der Stelle der Kopfhörerbuchse finden wir ein Bauteil, dass so aussieht, als ob es Geräusche von außen zum Mikrofon leitet... oder von der Taptic Engine nach draußen. Keine ausgefallene Elektronik hier, nur komplex designte Akustik und in Form gebrachtes Plastik. Teardown Update: Laut Apple ist dieses Plastikbauteil eine barometrische Entlüftungsöffnung. Das iPhone benötigt wegen dem hinzugefügten Eindringschutz gegen Spritzwasser eine Art Ventil, um für einen korrekt arbeitenden Höhenmesser den internen und äußeren Druck auszugleichen.

    • Jeder, der mit dem Touchpad des Retina MacBook 2015 in Berührung kam, kennt das Gefühl der Taptic Engine bereits.

fake speaker port????

Stan Chua - Antwort

If it's like ours (Chipworks), there's a microphone on one end of it , so it could be some sort of sound channeling chamber for that.

BHD2 - Antwort

Touchpad is also in the latest MacBook Pro laptops

Nathanael Bunge - Antwort

Apple doesn't waste space. The left port is for the microphone. It isn't a fake speaker port. And that speaker like component is a sound chamber - like our outer ears.

James Katt - Antwort

I agree, likely used to cut down on wind noise (low frequencies) the mic could pick up.

Dan -

Seems apple wasted space here. That "Taptic" engine seems to have a lot of air in it ( in the middle where it's not needed). Wonder if they could have made that a tad less wide and included the audio jack after all???

scottwilkins - Antwort

The two things you have to think about is the mass and the throw you have within the Taptic engine when you design it. You need enough mass that can kinetically offset the mass of the device you have it in, as well as the amount of energy to throw of the mass so you feel it.

It appears Apple has used a slightly larger unit (comparing the images). It would nice if someone could weigh the mass and measure the opening size between the iPhone 7 & 7 Plus Taptic engines and the 6 iPhone vibrators

Dan -

Looks a lot like that a "speaker port" for the Taptic Engine, for the home button to not only feel but also sound clicky.

What you described as a sound chamber doesn't seem to actually have any connection to the microphone, but to the Taptic Engine.

dgramatzki - Antwort

A Taptic could also be used as a subwoofer, due to its low resonant frequency of about 190Hz

The Speaker Guy - Antwort

Are there pins on both sides of the Lightning port.

chris - Antwort

I don't understand it.? No other product is taken apart except Apple products. We don't tear apart Samsung, Teslas, GM cars or any other computer type gadgets. Are people that fascinated with only Apple products? Come on stop it. Enjoy the technology. There's plenty of whiz bang products out there try tear them down too. Otherwise, this is iPhone 7, not iPhone 1 give it a break. I want to know more about the hidden features built into the software.

Cg10 - Antwort

First day on ifixit? That tore down a lot of other stuff too.

Tom Chai -

iFixit does not NEED to take apart the newer Samsung devices. They are quite capable of doing that themself...

Ruurd Pels -

Tearing down Samsung products is too dangerous. They explode.

alex -

The taptic home button is extension of the 3D touch. Where on the 6S the haptic feedback signaled a single "pop" out menu, the home button feedback happens on keypress and keyup. :)

Peter Shen - Antwort

I had a problem with the central button of iPhone 4. Now with the touchpad central button of iPhone 7 the reliability is increased. However the taptic engine is too big. I think that it takes valuable space from the battery. Beside the reliability issue the classic button should be better. I don't like the taptic engine of new MacBooks.

Agnostos Gnostos - Antwort

Why do you say the Taptic Engine is too big? Do you think they made it bigger than it needed to be to function the way they wanted?

pgoodwin1 - Antwort

When playing audio, can the Taptic Engine act as a passive bass radiator?

pgoodwin1 - Antwort

Cam someone just tell me the list of screwdriver sizes needed to take a iphone 7 apart

chfreeman73 - Antwort

  • Was macht man, wenn Sachen wackeln? Man nutzt Panzertape röntgt alles, was sich bewegt. Und genau das haben wir mit der Taptic Engine gemacht.

  • "Taptic Engine" hört sich wie etwas von einem intergalaktischen Kriegsschiff an. Eigentlich ist es nur ein winziger Linearantrieb, und Zickzack-Federn, die ein Gewicht schütteln.

    • Um genau zu sein, ist dies das größte mechanische Bauteil, das wir je in einem Smartphone gesehen haben.

  • Die Taptic Engine registriert den Druck, der auf den Home Button ausgeübt wird und übersetzt ihn in Schwingungen der Federn.

  • Wir alle lieben das Gefühl, einen Knopf zu drücken. Die präzise kontrollierten Schwingungen der Federn können sehr unterschiedliches Tastempfinden wiedergeben, inklusive dem Gefühl, einen mechanischen Knopf zu drücken.

    • Warum nicht einfach einen normalen Knopf in Kombination mit haptischem Feedback, wie im iPhone 6s, verwenden? Naja, ein Knopf weniger ist ein Ort weniger, an dem Wasser eindringen kann.

So is this a voicecoil+magnets actuator? Or a piezo device?

(I'm guessing voicecoil based on the X-Ray.)

atlant - Antwort

AH-HA! Moving Parts!

Just Johnny - Antwort

The central button could have been integrated on the screen. However it is a different component below screen that now it isn't moving. I hope in the future Apple will produce screens with a virtual central button.

In case of jailbrake the central button shouldn't be operational like it used to be with previous iPhone jailbrake methods.

Agnostos Gnostos - Antwort

So this is the device that replaced the audio jack?

Michael Balzer - Antwort

This "button" is cool, but to remove the audio jack is not. Seems Apple needs to find a middle ground. Smaller taptic device and room for the audio jack. Not sure why this wasn't considered on the "Plus" size.

scottwilkins - Antwort

What X-Ray equipment do you use? Do you sell this device?

Yan Li - Antwort

As a new owner of iPhone 7 plus i think a Linear oscillator is a mixed bag - pluses are quite well known so I'll just point out one big minus - when phone silenced is left on the desk it's almost inaudible. I've already missed some calls and alarms. :( - (it's case that covers camera bump so it lays even flat on desk)

Wir freuen uns zu sehen, dass Apple die Tradition der Ziehlaschen für den Klebstoff unter der Batterie beibehält. Nachdem die Schrauben entfernt sind ist es Zeit für etwas Batterie-Yoga.

Maybe the trickiest part of iPhone repairing. In the case of an early brake of the battery adhesive, tools must be used for removing the battery. Tools that may puncture the battery and cause fire. I suggest a totally discharged iPhone in case of battery replacement.

Agnostos Gnostos - Antwort

And how are we to do that? Let it run down normally? Seems like thatd take a while.

Tom Jackson -

If you rub the haptic feedback sensor in just the right spot it will vibrate continuously and drain the battery quickly

Black Friday
Broken doesn't stand a chance.
Hier ist sie, die fette Elke Batterie. Die Batteriespezifikationen sind 3,82 V und 11,1 Wh mit insgesamt 2900 mAh, einer kleinen Verbesserung gegenüber den 2750 mAh (3,8 V, 10,45 Wh) des 6s Plus, aber immer noch schlechter als die 11,1 Wh / 2915 mAh des 6 Plus.
  • Hier ist sie, die fette Elke Batterie.

  • Die Batteriespezifikationen sind 3,82 V und 11,1 Wh mit insgesamt 2900 mAh, einer kleinen Verbesserung gegenüber den 2750 mAh (3,8 V, 10,45 Wh) des 6s Plus, aber immer noch schlechter als die 11,1 Wh / 2915 mAh des 6 Plus.

    • Apple behauptet, die Akkuleistung ist bis zu einer Stunde länger im 6s Plus – was 21 Stunden Gesprächszeit, ungefähr 15 Stunden Internet über Wlan, oder bis zu 16 Tagen im Standby ergibt.

The new efficiency of the iPhone 7 plus allows a smaller battery and lighter weight.

James Katt - Antwort

I don't see how "1.11Wh" can be considered a step down from "1.11Wh"! They are identical numbers. The trouble with comparing mAh values, is that they are meaningless without knowing the voltage. And (knowing that W = VA) ...

3.82V * 2.900Ah = 11.078Wh (iPhone 7 plus)

3.80V * 2.915Ah = 11.077Wh (iPhone 6 plus)

Which means they are exactly the same, bar the least significant digit (which is in the 7's favour)!

hn1964 - Antwort

Apple as far as I know have a tradition of good batteries except the first generation of iPod nano which wasn't a big issue. I hoped for years that a manufacturer would produced a replacement battery for iPhones with bigger capacity. However Apple has proved that is using the best batteries on the market. And after samsung Galaxy note 7, Apple has the advantage on this factor.

Hatten wir letzte Nacht zu viel Sake? Beim Entfernen des Kamera-Arrays sehen wir doppelt: Zwei separate Sensoren, zwei Linsen und zwei kleine Anschlüsse. Die beiden 12 MP Kameras – ein Weitwinkelobjektiv mit optischem Bildstabilisator (OIS), genau wie im iPhone 7, und ein Teleobjektiv – ermöglichen optischen Zoom. Beide Kameras profitieren außerdem von einem neuen Bildsensor, der laut Apple 60% schneller und 30% energieeffizienter als die Vorgängerversionen ist.

Two sets of OIS?

The telephoto lens has OIS?

Not sure about that one

jetlitheone - Antwort

Yes it indeed does

yazdanbanaji - Antwort

Is there any chance anybody can take calipers to both lens assemblies and find us an actual height?

evilspoonman - Antwort

I'm hoping it does but most rumors said no.

maquinn1978 - Antwort

It really doesn't seem like it. Look at the voice coils. the smaller 56mm unit only has ones that are lined up to move the lenses back and forth for focusing. the 28mm one has magnets and coils that allow it to move from side to side and up and down for stabilization.

garyliao2001 - Antwort

I agree with you. I don't think the telephoto has OIS.

jetlitheone -

Looking at the two camera assemblies it sure looks like the 56mm camera does NOT have OIS. This is consistent what reviewers with units have written so far.

sam123 - Antwort

Also, are these sensors 6mm diagonal? (1/3-inch sensors)

evilspoonman - Antwort

I think 1/2,6" the first one. EXIF data suggest tele sensor is 1/3,2"...

maurizionatali -

Doesn't look like it has OIS on the 56MM

http://imgur.com/a/6lrPW

max - Antwort

I believe those magnets you are indicating on the 28mm optical housing interact with the electromagnets on the face of the sensor assembly. The orange plate with wire traces on all four corners. I agree with your assessment that the 56mm lens is just a focusing voice coil and is not stabilized.

evilspoonman -

"the second a telephoto —allow for optical zoom" Really? Isn't it only for Focus?

Masa - Antwort

One camera is a 28mm F1.8 with OIS and sensor, the other is a 56mm F2.8 normal lens with no OIS and it's own sensor, read, not telephoto that optically doubles ( 2x ) the magnification of the two cameras in use. I am not sure how it is dealt with when in between 1-2X but beyond 2x is "digital zoom" which is essentially cropping the native file of the longest lens. There is no real "telephoto" lens in the iPhone 7+, it is just marketing speak. However, the combination of a 28mm and a 56mm lens is not a weak addition to the already great iPhone camera platform. I plan on using it a lot and making a lot of great images with it when not using my professional gear, for my profession.

dphotobayer - Antwort

what kind of sensor ? IMX????

badnessboy83 - Antwort

I know it's Apple's term, but the non-wideangle camera is not, by any definition, "telephoto". It's actually a "standard" lens, roughly equivalent to a 55mm lens on a 35m camera.

biowizard - Antwort

Technically it is a telephoto as are all phone lenses - telephoto means that the lens is shorter than its effective focal length whereas on slrs wide angle lenses have to be reverse telephoto to clear the mirror. It is a telephoto of normal focal length, like the pancake lenses fitted to a number of digital cameras.

Martin Bacon -

A telephoto lens has a focal length longer than that of the track length of the lens assembly. Apple is using the term correctly.

where is gyroscope sensor? and accelerometer? thanks

hector - Antwort

I'd like to know what the camera module is, and what the pixel size is. In the announcement, they stated "bigger pixels" but never said how big.

skydivertak - Antwort

Could you please tell us what the image sensor is? I'm hoping for IMX260 or IMX377, probably the two best smartphone chips on the market today; if the nominal rated size of the main chip is "1/2.6" at 12 MP, the closest match I'm aware of in the Exmor lineup would be the 260 given unless its something brand new, that's the closet match to the specs given (at ~1/2.5 and 12 MP), and Sony only makes a few 1/2.6 chips, none near 12 MP, as well as the 260 being the sensor used in the also dual camera V10. I can't see any obvious candidates for the second sensor; the only 1/3.2 sensors Sony has are the 8 MPs. And I don't see any discussion of the front sensor here, though perhaps I'm just missing it.

kaiyeh0913 - Antwort

Hello guys,

Have you figured out who is the sensor manufacturer?

Miguel Ferreira - Antwort

Smartphones even iPhones suffer from image noise during low light shooting. They use very small image sensors which can't gather enough light fast. So the software amplifies digitally the ISO creating image noise and deteriorating colors.

I would prefer a bigger camera with a bigger image sensor with better image stabilization instead of two cameras. Ordinary users are impressed more from the two cameras and don't know the benefits of bigger image sensors.

Agnostos Gnostos - Antwort

I think Sony should be the manufacturer, OIS is not available for the telephoto lens.

gr8sujit - Antwort

The comments below this article indicate the telephoto lens does indeed have OIS. But the comments above my post say otherwise. What is the final conclusion? Does the iP7+ have OIS on all lenses/cameras?

speedlever - Antwort

Can the camera glass be replaced?

parshnib - Antwort

Would there be a way to turn off the hardware OIS by doing into the machine? Some people with stabilizing gimbals are finding the hardware OIS troublesome by causing jitters on video capture. Apple has not enabled a way to completely turn off hardware OIS.

timdlr - Antwort

Any chance of being able to replace the camera glass? It's built into the chassis but looks like it could be removed and replaced.

Bevor wir das Logic Board aus dem Rückgehäuse entfernen können, müssen wir Teile der Antenneneinheit entfernen – auch das Antennenflexkabel, das als Verbindung zwischen den Leiterbahnen der Antennen dient. Nach dem Entfernen des Antennenflexkabels fokussieren wir uns auf die obere linke Wlan-Antenne.

These both appear to be Squelch pads. The second image is the shielding cover over the second. The antenna is the upper case its self.

Unlike the iPhone 6 series which had two antenna's in the top case this series shares the same antenna for both cellular and WiFi. Its possible they also have so attenuator logic here as well.

It supports 4X4 MIMO, but the physical antennas have to be installed by the manufacturer, in this case, Apple would have to be sure to include the antenna set. It is supposedly supported via software update, so it seems that might also depend on Apple.

Agnostos Gnostos - Antwort

The model is A1785 according to the first post. This means this is the Japan model. If what I hear is correct, this means that the chips in this model are different than those around the world. This has to do with the FeliCa chip that Apple said would be available in "iPhones sold in Japan." What I would like to know is what a teardown of a non-Japanese iphone 7 has in terms of NFC chips. I wonder because there would be a difference of "We only advertise FeliCa in Japan (but the hardware is there)" as opposed to "We only include the hardware for FeliCa in the Japanese SKUs, A1779 (iphone 7) or A1785 (iPhone 7 Plus)." As someone who travels to Japan (and has Suica/FeliCa cards), this would be useful to know.

lwwells - Antwort

The home button still implements the touch ID circuitry so it needs to be removable in order to replace.

Rick Bargerhuff -

If I recall, not everyone can replace the home button on the previous iPhone because there was a chip on the cable that has some data that's tied to the specific motherboard (apple citing that it was a security feature). Only a reprogram at Apple can "pair" a new home button to a phone. I wonder if this is like that? But without any moving parts, it's a lot more reliable of course.

Thats pretty much same layout of LCD/Digitizer in iPad Air located on the lower right side with the addition of another flex for front facing cam on iPhone 7 series.

iTechshark MO -

The cable might be routed under the LCD back plate and thats what I am hoping, Apple will be insane having the home button built in the LCD assembly, maybe next year but not that year lol

iTechshark MO -

Ya, It does have a resemblance to the iPad Mini 4 too (oddly enough did two of those this week, of four total I have seen). We should all know very soon hopefully.

joel -

The flex cable appears to go off on the right of the Home button and there seems to be an extension cable that connects to it near the rightmost screw. You can see a small bubble in the cable between the LCD shield and Home button shield??.

Kevin Stuckey - Antwort

You are right, thats what I was saying a minute ago.

iTechshark MO -

Also I am kinda feeling that the home button/touch ID will be easier to transfer than previous model with no adhesive, it seems its just a plate screwed in the button.

iTechshark MO -

Also if you look at the photo closely, there is a flex on the right side of the home button ( its on the left side on the 6 /6S series ) so I am kinda positive that the home button/touch ID is transferrable based on a close up of the photo with a zoom in the right side of the home button.

iTechshark MO - Antwort

I agree with you!

Kevin Stuckey -

OK, I see what your talking about. Their is also a little hump on the right that is probably the connection point. Looking at the screw in the center of the button, maybe it comes out the front like the track-pad on a macbook. That shield should be lots of fun, I am betting the LCD flex is glued over.

rneeley -

Yup that sounds right except that the screw is just sitting to hold the button on place and not to adjust its tactile feedback since its not mechanical.

iTechshark MO -

"Two separate sensors, two lenses, and two sets of optical image stabilizers." So OIS on both lenses/sensors?

Holger - Antwort

Yes indeed ! You got the right mate ! Despite people's claims on the telephoto lens not having the OiS it's crystal clear from this teardown that it indeed does have one

yazdanbanaji -

Based on Apple , its just one mechanical OIS and the second one is just software controlled so its just one OIS as far as I can tell.

iTechshark MO -

No I don't think so, the electromagnetic coils of the 56mm unit only move the lens back and forth for focusing. The 28mm unit you can clearly see the coils and the magnets that allow it to move side to side.

garyliao2001 -

You are right, didn't notice the coils at all.

iTechshark MO -

I can confirm that the touch ID/home button is screwed in a plate with 3 screws to pull it off and the button itself is screwed to the middle of the shield with one , cheers guys, its gonna be transferrable :)

iTechshark MO - Antwort

Good! Now I can sleep soundly tonight knowing I still have a job for the next year :)

Please do provide a detailed review of the new NFC chip that features FeliCa technology exclusively for the Japanese model A1784.

Thanks!

AKari Kamigishi - Antwort

Please also tear down the 3.5mm to lightning cable to determine what type of DAC it uses

Pasko - Antwort

Yes, please do this someone!

Dan Parsons -

And the earphones ~~ DD

Henryplusone -

Are we sure this uses a DAC and the lightning port isn't just capable of outputting an analog signal?

lwwells -

Indeed I am also dying to know what the DAC situation is!

Foo Bar -

I've had one of these adapters since Thursday -- if I had know it was going to take this long, I would have just torn mine down and published the results on my own blog! The reveal of the third amp is a serious indicator Apple has modified its MFi specs, and now allows analogue output from Lightning. That's a HUGE deal.

Mac 128 -

Yes also very keen to find this info out. Chop-chop ifixit (literally)!

I'd like to see the SIM tray portion that this mechanism is how to achieve water resistance IPx7.

ao11oaray - Antwort

Nice teardown!

How about gyro?

STM or Invensense?

john smith - Antwort

I am guessing the rectangular chip besides those front-end modules in step 14 is the gyro/accelometer. It becomes such a weird shape because Apple wants both a low-energy 3-axis and an accurate 6-axis in one module. If my theory is right, the marker on that chip hints STM.

Jie Zou -

It is the latest INVN chip

Someone who knows -

Hey someone who knows why are you so sure? In the 6 there were two separate gyros, a Bosch 3-axis and an Invensense 6-axis: http://www.chipworks.com/about-chipworks... Is this a new part (combo 3 and 6-axis)?

John -

It is 6-axis Invensense and yes, I am very sure for reasons not related to this article.

Someone who knows -

7 and 7 plus accelerometer response is different ,so wonder if 7 still use Bosch acce like iphone 6.

john smith -

It appears to be an invensense chip. You can see it on the Chinese version... http://www.microsofttranslator.com/bv.as...

Apple A10 Fusion APL1W24 SoC - made by TSMC or Samsung?

Lets teardown A1784..

skemhey - Antwort

100% made in TSMC. That is old news.

Jie Zou -

Wow, amazing. The battery is the same of 6 Plus.

Marco Tini - Antwort

I wonder, if I teardown and reassemble again will it be water resistant after re-assembly? as I can see there were some glue while opening the phone.

dhanesh shastri - Antwort

Who supplied the gyroscope and accelometer? Traditionally it is near those front-end modules.

skemhey - Antwort

How does Apple get stereo from only one speaker? Or does the photo of the speaker in step 19 show a divider in the middle that "separates" two small speakers? If so, how does one call this "stereo" when the two speakers are so close together? And why do the diagrams on Apple's website show lines pointing to the two grilles on the bottom of the phone, with the legend describing them as "Stereo speakers", when the iFixit teardown shows that the left-hand grille doesn't actually have a speaker behind it, contrary to Apple's diagram? And why do some of Apple's own diagrams point to a supposed second speaker towards the top of the phone, though the iFixit teardown found no such speaker there?

johnsawyercjs - Antwort

The receiver speaker - that is, the speaker you hold up to your ear when you make a phone call, is the "second speaker" they're using for stereo sound now.

Dan Parsons -

Thanks. It took me a while to figure that out.

So it seems that the second speaker is a beefier version of the ear speaker at the top of the phone, shown above the display in step 5. If so, since this speaker is front-facing, and the speaker at the bottom is downward/side-facing, this might not give a normal stereo image, but it has the advantage of delivering sound along two planes instead of one, so that whether you're facing the front of the phone or its lower end, you'll still have one speaker pointed towards you, which should deliver better clarity than having neither speaker pointed towards you. Of course, if you have the phone sitting on a table and you're facing one of the two sides or the top end of the phone, you won't have a speaker pointed towards you, but you'll still have the front-facing speaker emitting sound up and out, and sound reflecting upward off the table from the bottom-facing speaker, so there will still be good diffusion of sound, and some stereo separation.

But where is the screen teardown??

edenadinar - Antwort

It seems more modular than 6s and earlier. Are there more easily replaceable parts?

John Gough - Antwort

Unanswered question, what model, if any, uses Intel Modem.

Is there really a specific NFC-F ( Felica ) hardware or is it all software?

K Sec - Antwort

Any thoughts about "BENDGATE" - as this phone is lighter than last year's model, will it be bendy, like the original 6-plus? Or pretty rigid, like the 6S-plus? What type of aluminium have they used this year?

It's extremely rigid.

IPhone 7

Audio ICs

The iPhone 7 still uses the same Apple/Cirrus Logic 338S00105 Audio Codec as in the iPhone 6S, but the Audio Amplifier has changed to the new 338S00220. (previously 338S1285).

We found not just 2 but 3 Audio Amplifiers - we speculate there is one audio amplifier for for each of the two speakers, and the third amplifier is for the headphone via the Lightning port.

The third Audio amplifier is situated next to the Applications Processor Module with 3 black blobs on it. It was discovered during de-soldering of the A10 applications processor. When the blob was scraped off, it was an ‘oh wow, there are 3 audio amps!’ kind of discovery. Chipworks has a Basic Functional Analysis Report of the Apple/Cirrus Logic 338S1285.

Note******** ifixit teardown report only lists 2 audio amps ....Chipworks discovered the third amp

rafaelgil2006 - Antwort

Does anybody know if the 7 plus is using saphire glass? Or is it (like it was shown in a video earlier on the regular 7) only using Gorilla Glass.

han - Antwort

You missed a third audio amplifier. Directly above the "A" in "A10" on the processor, there is a chip with 3 black blobs on it. It's the amplifier for the lightning port to headphone adapter.

spaceywilly - Antwort

Yes, that third amp is a significant discovery implying a major change to Apple's MFi specs. In which case its a huge reversal of position, and will lead to a flood of cheap analogue audio products previously not possible, not to mention significant confusion as to just exactly what a "Lightning" equipped product means. My adapter didn't work on my SE until I updated to iOS 10. That shouldn't have been necessary as Apple already has published Lightning audio specs -- unless they changed something significant. So suddenly its not an inexpensive digital adapter with a DAC and amp, its a very expensive port connector changer.

what is the difference on the 1784 model?

I see everyone asking for a teardown. Is it better than the rest of them?

george allo - Antwort

Any idea what the part is between the RF front-end (between the Skyworks part and Avago PAMs)?

Harold - Antwort

The stereo speakers function in such a way, that if you do watch a video on your phone or if you tilt your phone sideways, there will be a left and right speaker, both working to create a stereo sound. Most people do use their iPhone sideways to view videos, so this will certainly be noticeable to them.

Jose Toscano - Antwort

I'd love to see a review of this. I can't imagine how they are going to make two different speakers sound the same, much less where one faces the listener, and the other points of to the side.

Mac 128 -

What about reassembly? It looks like a lot of the waterproofing is either a) lost, or b) significantly disturbed from the teardown. With reassembly, do we have to completely remove the waterproofing and reapply? If not, does it go back together imperfectly, due to gobs of the waterproofing building up during disassembly?

I wonder if you couldn't spray the entire internals with waterproofing, after the fact? It would make future mods/repairs basically impossible, but would improve/restore the initial waterproofing.

To all the rocket surgeons and techies out there, what're your thoughts?

bsquirdoff - Antwort

Did you specify the IMU package?

Is this the new IPS LCD panel from JDI? I have read it uses the second generation Low Temperature Polysilicon backplanes, which in another article fueled a rumor that a higher resolution panel was going to used due to the power savings.

Is the lightening port data throughput the same as the previous iPhone 6s Plus, or the updated standard used in the iPad Pro?

Have you confirmed that there is analog audio available now from the lightning port?

Michael Balzer - Antwort

txlcdsupplier - Antwort

I have a question. Did Apple use any technology from printed electronics, like silver ink, in the latest iPhone?

lol - Antwort

If history is any guide as ALL Apple products have InvenSense gyros then we will see an integrated single 6 Axis from InvenSense. The Apple Watch must use a single 6 axis for everything to reduce power.

The only question is did Apple use InveSense GPS navigation Software?

Apple obviously has reduced GPS run time and rides the 6 Axis to reduce power consumption by up to 80% off time. This is what InveSense software specializes in and it has to be in the iWatch.

Will Apple do their own dead reconning algorithms or use InveSense SW?

KrisCo - Antwort

I found a write up on a Chinese site that shows the Invensense Chip. http://www.microsofttranslator.com/bv.as...

I never understand why it takes so long for folks to figure out the accelerometers / gyros... It's nice to see that others have already identified the InvenSense 773C but I wish iFixit had figured it out first. Is this a living document? Will additional chips and information be added as the rest of the world figures it out? Regardless, great teardown guys! Thank you for doing this year after year!

Bob Powers - Antwort

It would be interesting to know who makes the microphone(s). That's a small but important piece that few ever take much notice of.

Bob Powers - Antwort

Is the camera sensor same as on 6s plus? I'm asking about the pixel and resolution. Not just the 12 megapixel total resolution. I know there is a new image processor. That's not the question. I want to know if this new sensor resolves for a better image quality than the iPhone 6 s plus. Practically speaking, is it (the 7 plus camera image sensor) a better film? Better pixels? Knowing the optics are improved for better optical resolution.
