This is what the redesigned interiors of the iPhone 15 Pro look like.

The iPhone 15 Pro has undergone some notable changes in its construction compared to its predecessor, including a shift from stainless steel frames to titanium frames. In addition to this, the internal components of the iPhone 15 Pro have also been modified. A recent viral video by the YouTube channel PBKreviews provides an in-depth teardown and reassembly of the iPhone 15 Pro, shedding light on its literal insides.

It’s important to note that the video specifically showcases the iPhone 15 Pro model and not the iPhone 15 Pro Max variant. The latter variant offers impressive 5x zoom capabilities, thanks to its new periscope camera, while the regular-sized iPhone 15 Pro provides 3x zoom.

During the Wonderlust September 12 event, Apple emphasized that the chassis design of the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max has been altered to allow for easier repairs. The back glass of the devices is now “easily replaceable,” as reported by 9to5Mac.

The 10-minute video begins with the removal of the screen and the detachment of various cables. It then proceeds to disassemble the remaining internal components, such as the earpiece, camera setup, battery (which boasts a slightly higher capacity of 3,274 mAh compared to the iPhone 14 Pro’s 3,200 mAh), as well as various sensors and motors.

In terms of repairability, the iPhone 15 Pro receives a score of 7/10 from the reviewer. This score is two points higher than that of the Huawei Mate 60 Pro. The latter device received a score of 5/10 due to its screen, which was excessively glued and caused irreparable damage upon separation from the chassis.

While a score of 7/10 is generally good for repairability, it is worth noting that iFixit has recently downgraded its Repairability Score for iPhones from a recommended 7/10 to a do-not-recommend 4/10. In a detailed blog post, iFixit explains that this decision was based on concerns regarding Apple’s approach to repairs. While the simplified interior design of newer iPhones does make self-repairing technically easier, there are software limitations imposed on repairs. Apple’s System Configuration tool requires a “software handshake” to authenticate and pair new parts with the system.

Supporters argue that this approach ensures the use of genuine Apple parts and reduces the risk of scams.
