iFixit’s iPhone 12 mini teardown appears at how Apple match a lot into such a tiny system

Orders for the brand new iPhone 12 mini have began arriving for purchasers, and the staff at iFixit did a two-part teardown—of each an EU and US mannequin— to determine how Apple managed to incorporate 5G {hardware} and the standard iPhone parts into such a bit of system.

The very first thing you discover wanting on the inside pictures is the smaller battery within the mini, which measures as much as comparable iPhone fashions surprisingly nicely, iFixit finds, with 8.57 Wh.

“That’s extra juice than the iPhone SE 2020‘s 6.96 Wh, however understandably wanting the ten.78 Wh of the usual 12 it’s stacked on prime of,” iFixit notes. It’s lower than the ten.78 Wh of the iPhone 12 battery, although.

The Taptic Engine, audio system, and MagSafe ring are all included within the mini in smaller variations to avoid wasting house. However Apple managed to suit the same-sized digital camera as its different iPhone fashions into the mini, which iFixit suggests might have come on the expense of battery life— one thing GadgetClock’s Dieter Bohn encountered in our iPhone mini overview.

The mini digital camera has the identical ƒ/1.6 wide-angle and ƒ/2.4 extremely wide-angle cameras discovered within the iPhone 12, the teardown exhibits.

Total, iFixit discovered the iPhone 12 mini to be fairly much like its bigger counterparts: “The iPhone 12 mini is a small telephone with large ambitions. We’re stunned by how acquainted the internals look in comparison with different iPhones this yr, given the variations in dimension amongst them.”
