The first smartphones, iPhone 12 mini, have already begun to arrive to customers, and the iFixit team also received a novelty at their disposal to carry out the device’s traditional disassembly.
IN iFixit notes that the iPhone 12 mini battery is significantly smaller than that of the standard iPhone 12 model – 8.57 Wh versus 10.78 Wh. However, it is larger when compared to the 2020 iPhone SE’s 6.96 Wh battery.
Many device components, such as Taptic Engine, Speakers, MagSafe Components, are downsized to save space inside the case. However, the camera module has the same dimensions as the standard model. This is likely what led to a decrease in battery life and a decrease in battery life. The iPhone 12 mini camera has the same camera components (standard and ultra-wide-angle modules) that were found when the Phone 12 was disassembled.
In general, according to iFixit experts, the iPhone 12 mini is very similar to its larger counterparts.
“The iPhone 12 mini is a small smartphone with big ambitions. We are surprised at how familiar the internals are compared to other iPhones this year, given the size difference between the two. ”
The iPhone 12 mini has a repairability rating of 6 out of 10. This suggests that the device is relatively easy to repair. Among the disadvantages are the use of specific screws, materials for waterproofing, which complicate repairs (although they protect internal components), and fragile glass on the back panel.
