It is the turn of the iPhone 12 Pro Max to have the right when disassembling iFixit. This is the largest of the four variants of the iPhone 12. This is the case both on the outside and on the inside, as shown in the photos above.
One of the peculiarities of the iPhone 12 Pro Max is to have a large photo block on the back. Disassembly shows that it actually takes up space in the phone with its three large modules. Their size is more substantial than that of other iPhone 12. The wide-angle sensor alone is 47% larger, that is to say.
The teardown of the iPhone 12 Pro Max shows that the photo unit is not the only component that is imposing. This is also the case for the Tapic Engine. The photo below clearly shows a difference with the model of the iPhone 12 Pro Max (top) and the iPhone 12 mini (bottom). Another bigger item on the 6.7 inch model is the speaker.
Conversely, the motherboard of the iPhone 12 Pro Max is more compact than that of the iPhone 12 mini. But iFixit notes that the second has the SIM card reader. The comparison is therefore not very fair. In addition, the teardown confirms what we already knew: the battery is L-shaped. Its capacity is 3,687 mAh.
iFixit gives a score of 6 out of 10 for the repair. Disassembling the iPhone 12 Pro Max is relatively straightforward. Screen and battery repair is rated as fairly easy.
