The updated iPhone 13 Pro was disassembled by iFixit specialists. They spoke in detail about the internal components of the novelty, battery capacity, RAM memory and repair features.
First of all, you can take a look at the X-ray of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. They showcase an oversized battery made in an “L” form factor, as well as stabilization magnets around the cameras and a ring of MagSafe magnets.
During the autopsy, the craftsmen found a thin top train, which (according to them) would be very easy to damage during repairs. Experts also confirmed the information that replacing the display on the iPhone 13 Pro will disable Face ID if it is performed at any service center other than authorized Apple centers.

Visually, Apple managed to shrink the Taptic Engine, but it actually weighs more than in the iPhone 12 Pro model. In the novelty, the weight of the part is 6.3 grams, while in last year’s flagship the weight is 4.8 grams.
The display is now missing a speaker. Because of the upward movement, it sits in the body, so replacing the OLED panel is easier, but the problem with Face ID complicates the process.
The new battery, which now has an L-shape, as opposed to the rectangular one on last year’s models, received a capacity of 3095 mAh. Last year, the iPhone 12 Pro was equipped with a 2815 mAh battery. Battery replacement is possible, despite rumors that have been circulating on the net. The device received 6GB of RAM SK Hynix LPDDR4X.
Previously, Ming-Chi Kuo said that the iPhone 13 Pro will receive a satellite function and a corresponding modem. But experts have not found any components related to this function.
The overall repairability score of the iPhone 13 Pro was 5 out of 10, mostly due to Face ID.
