Schemes, disassembly, repair and review Apple iPhone X

The smartphone Apple iPhone X uses a 5.8-inch OLED Super Retina HD display with a resolution of 2436 × 1125 pixels. Also available are A11 Bionic processor, dual main camera, built-in wireless charging system based on Qi technology. In this model, the manufacturer refused the Home button and the fingerprint scanner. For the purposes of biometric identification of the user, a face scan is used - a function called Face ID.

Following the disassembly of the new smartphone Apple iPhone X was assigned a maintainability rating of 6 out of 10. Note that the maximum score of 10 corresponds to the most easily repairable devices. Thus, the model under consideration is quite well repairable. Let's add, the iPhone 8 has the same maintainability rating.

In the process of disassembling the smartphone iPhone X, you need to pay attention to the following features:

  • The ability to repair the display and battery remains a priority in the design of the iPhone.
  • The cracked display can be replaced without affecting the hardware of the Face ID biometric identification function.
  • The battery is characterized by a capacity of 10.35 Wh (2716 mAh at 3.81 V). Thus, iPhone X slightly bypasses this model of the model iPhone 8 Plus (10.28 Wh), but inferior to the competing product Samsung Galaxy Note8 (12.71 Wh).
  • For fixing internal components, Apple engineers prefer screw, not glue. However, in addition to the standard Phillips screws, Apple's own screws (Pentalobe and three-point screws) are also used.
  • Water protection facilities complicate the repair work of some components of the iPhone X. On the other hand, now labor-intensive repairs due to damage to internal components by water are less likely.
  • Overloaded cable connections of unconnected components create problems in repair and make it more complicated.
  • Glass panels on the front and back of the smartphone double the likelihood of damage in the event of a fall of the smartphone. And if the rear screen breaks when falling, then for repair it will be necessary to remove all components and replace the whole case.
