Do you want to take a look inside the iPhone 15 Pro? The flagship wearable hasn’t even started shipping yet, but the PBKreviews people They have already taken the device apart, revealing the redesigned mid-frame chassis, along with all the components located under the display and glass back of the iPhone 15 Pro.
The video begins with careful removal of the screen using a screen removal device and a plastic pick. From there, PBKreviews disconnects the screen from the body of the phone and removes a series of cables. That’s when we get a good look at the iPhone 15’s camera assembly, which has three Phillips screws holding it in place.
After removing the entire camera assembly, PBKreviews offers a close-up view of the iPhone 15 Pro’s 48MP main camera, 12MP telephoto lens, and 12MP ultra-wide lens. PBKreviews also manages to remove the front camera of the iPhone 15 Pro and the TrueDepth Face ID camera. Other components highlighted during the video include the iPhone 15 Pro’s Taptic Engine, lidar sensor, USB-C port, and battery.
You can also see how PBKreviews removes the glass back from the device using a suction cup and plastic pick, a design tweak Apple made with the iPhone 14 to make it easier to repair. While the design change may make the device mechanically easier (and cheaper) to repair, it does not change Apple’s part-matching requirement, which prevents DIYers and repair shops from recycling old parts or buy new ones.
