    The iPhone 7 plus is much deferent than iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S. The lack of antenna lines especial at the jet black version, the lack of earphone jack, the dual lenses and dual speaker make it distinguishable. I personally like it very much and I will soon buy the iPhone 7 plus jet black 256GByte model. The only thing I dislike is that I won't be able to store my iOS apps on my hard disk as I am doing with my old jailbroken iphone 6 plus. So the 256 Gbytes are more than necessary.

      • L'iPhone 7 Plus porte également un nouveau numéro de modèle : A1785.

    • Pour ceux qui sont plus enclins à aller du côté sombre, Apple offre maintenant pour l'iPhone 7 Plus une version noire et une version noire de jais qu'on peut égratigner facilement, en plus des versions originales : argent, or et or rose.

    • L'iPhone 7 Plus renonce également aux lignes d'antenne disgracieuses pour une apparence plus subtile.

    • La différence la plus notable réside peut-être dans l'adaptateur Lightning vers mini-jack 3,5 mm, qui est inclus dans la boite. Il nous faut donc beaucoup de courage pour passer à autre chose. Désolé cher adaptateur, ce n'est pas de ta faute, c'est de la nôtre.

    The dimensions of the iPhone 7 Plus are identical to those of its predecessor, at 158.2 mm × 77.9 mm × 7.3 mm—and yet it's slightly lighter, at 6.63 oz (vs. the 6s Plus at 6.77 oz). Hopefully Apple didn't remove anything important.... They removed the headphone jack and assembly.

    I don't believe that the jet black color is so prone to scratches. I generally baby my phone and protect them with cases and glass membranes. So it's not a real issue. The lack of earphone jack isn't a problem. I bet that every manufacturer very soon will produce earphones with lighting jack. Those with very expensive conventional earphones will find the earphone adapter annoying but that isn't a big issue. After all when you are buying a phone at 800 dollars you can spent 100 dollars for decent earphones. Apple as always is removing parts from its iPhones. People forget that the earphone jack of the first generation iphone was small and deep inside. It didn't allow many earphones.

    The square works off the headphone jack. If they use it to spec, then it should work off the adapter.

    • Même si Apple s'est débarrassé de la prise jack, l'entreprise reste fidèle aux vis Pentalobe. Ces vis devenues familières surveillent chaque côté du connecteur Lightning.

    • Curieux de voir ce qui se cache derrière l'extérieur or rose, nous avons recours à notre énergique iSclack et à une bonne dose de vigueur pour soulever l'écran et passer outre l'adhésif solide.

      • La bande adhésive qui ferme le 7 Plus adhère beaucoup plus que celle trouvée dans les modèles précédents. S'agirait-il d'un premier signe d'étanchéité ?

    Does it make sense noting the best location to set the iSclack onto the iPhone so not to rip the cable connection shown in Step5 below? Or the best pattern to lift the cover off.

    Dan - Réponse

    Apple could easily have avoid screws on iPhone like it does with iPads and iPod touch. This is an indications that Apple wants their phone to be serviceable by experienced foreigners. But not easily ben opened by ordinary users. The adhesive strip is a good idea. I wouldn't like an iPhone with a wobbling battery inside.

    The iSclack is more than necessary. This cables can be broken easily. One of the reasons I love iFixit. From my experience all iPhones since iphone 4 were a little waterproofing. I didn't have problems with lightly rain or with wet hands or very sweaty faces. Now with the new iPhone I will use it safely at the beach. However waterproofing is a subjective issue. The iphone 7 is less waterproof than the second Apple watch.

    Audio Jack and Water Resistance strike me as being somewhat mutually counterproductive. I, for one, am very happy to see the poxy 3.5mm Jack consigned to history.

    biowizard -

    Another possibility for the reasoning behind the tri-point screws is that Apple knows these are the most common screws to need to be removed, and chose to go with something less likely to strip for their "geniuses" to work with.

    Bryan Schwartz - Réponse

    The Phillips screw is a terrible screw drive design. According to McFeeley's, it was invented and promoted because the driver will cam out when torque increases. I'm skeptical about the motivation, but Phillips screws cam out or strip out with alarming frequency, especially in smaller sizes. I would love to never see or use a Phillips screw.

    If you want to ding Apple for picking obscure drivers, fine. But you should also ding them, and everyone else, when they use the horrible Phillips screws.

    Derek Roff - Réponse

    Then why not use Torx?

    Chris Prendergast -

    The reason tri-lobe screws are used is because a Torx drive socket on a screw that small wouldn't work. The tri-lobe is like a Torx profile and has the same advantages, but with two less lobes. In addition, tri-lobes are used because it can be put on a screw with a thinner head, where other drive types wouldn't work. The thinnest screw heads (0.3mm and below) require tri-lobe.

    Do people really think nefarious apple engineers are intentionally trying to keep users from doing repairs? They could care less. Besides, if anyone's gotten that far, a screw type with an uncommon head is not going to stop them.

    John Connor -

    Bryan is right. They are tri-point because they are the most common to remove and therefore you don't want to strip them. Why all the screws aren't tri-point I'm not sure of.

    Shaun Stelley - Réponse

    But what size of tri lobe is it? Like apple watch y0.6?

    Piotr - Réponse

    I never could understand why Apple is bothering with so many different type of screws. At the age of ebay and iFixit every screw can be opened safely. Maybe another method to discourage users that don't know iFixit to mess with the the internal hardware

    • À la place de la prise jack, nous découvrons un composant qui semble faire passer le son de l'extérieur du téléphone au microphone... ou du Taptic Engine.

      • Pas d'électronique sophistiquée ici, juste quelques pièces acoustiques bien conçues et du plastique moulé.

      • Mise à jour démontage : selon Apple, ce composant en plastique est un conduit pour le baromètre. Suite à la meilleure protection contre les dégâts des eaux apportée par le joint étanche, l'iPhone se sert de ce régulateur pour égaliser la pression atmosphérique à l'intérieur et à l'extérieur et avoir un altimètre précis.

    • Les boutons mécaniques appartiennent au passé quand vous avez un Taptic Engine ! Cet engin élégant utilise un dispositif haptique pour simuler la pression sur un bouton, sans en avoir un vrai.

    Dan -

    Seems apple wasted space here. That "Taptic" engine seems to have a lot of air in it ( in the middle where it's not needed). Wonder if they could have made that a tad less wide and included the audio jack after all???

    scottwilkins - Réponse

    The two things you have to think about is the mass and the throw you have within the Taptic engine when you design it. You need enough mass that can kinetically offset the mass of the device you have it in, as well as the amount of energy to throw of the mass so you feel it.

    It appears Apple has used a slightly larger unit (comparing the images). It would nice if someone could weigh the mass and measure the opening size between the iPhone 7 & 7 Plus Taptic engines and the 6 iPhone vibrators

    Dan -

    Looks a lot like that a "speaker port" for the Taptic Engine, for the home button to not only feel but also sound clicky.

    What you described as a sound chamber doesn't seem to actually have any connection to the microphone, but to the Taptic Engine.

    I had a problem with the central button of iPhone 4. Now with the touchpad central button of iPhone 7 the reliability is increased. However the taptic engine is too big.

    • "Taptic Engine", on dirait quelque chose venu tout droit d'un vaisseau spatial. En réalité, il s'agit seulement d'un petit actionneur linéaire et de ressorts qui zigzagent pour mettre un poids en mouvement.

    • Le Taptic Engine mesure la force de pression exercée sur le bouton home fixe et la retranscrit en une oscillation des ressorts.

    • Nous aimons ce qui se passe lorsque nous cliquons sur le bouton home. L'oscillation soigneusement contrôlée des ressorts est conçue pour procurer plusieurs sortes de sensations tactiles, dont celle ressentie en appuyant sur un bouton mécanique.

    James Katt - Réponse

    I don't see how "1.11Wh" can be considered a step down from "1.11Wh"! They are identical numbers. The trouble with comparing mAh values, is that they are meaningless without knowing the voltage. And (knowing that W = VA) ...

    3.82V * 2.900Ah = 11.078Wh (iPhone 7 plus)

    3.80V * 2.915Ah = 11.077Wh (iPhone 6 plus)

    Which means they are exactly the same, bar the least significant digit (which is in the 7's favour)!

    • Les deux caméras ont un nouveau capteur d'image, qui selon Apple est plus rapide à 60% et plus écoénergétique à 30% que dans les iPhone précédents.

    I agree with you. I don't think the telephoto has OIS.

    I believe those magnets you are indicating on the 28mm optical housing interact with the electromagnets on the face of the sensor assembly. The orange plate with wire traces on all four corners. I agree with your assessment that the 56mm lens is just a focusing voice coil and is not stabilized.

    evilspoonman -

    "the second a telephoto —allow for optical zoom" Really? Isn't it only for Focus?

    Masa - Réponse

    One camera is a 28mm F1.8 with OIS and sensor, the other is a 56mm F2.8 normal lens with no OIS and it's own sensor, read, not telephoto that optically doubles ( 2x ) the magnification of the two cameras in use. I am not sure how it is dealt with when in between 1-2X but beyond 2x is "digital zoom" which is essentially cropping the native file of the longest lens. There is no real "telephoto" lens in the iPhone 7+, it is just marketing speak. However, the combination of a 28mm and a 56mm lens is not a weak addition to the already great iPhone camera platform. I plan on using it a lot and making a lot of great images with it when not using my professional gear, for my profession.

    what kind of sensor ? IMX????

    badnessboy83 - Réponse

    I know it's Apple's term, but the non-wideangle camera is not, by any definition, "telephoto". It's actually a "standard" lens, roughly equivalent to a 55mm lens on a 35m camera.

    biowizard - Réponse

    Technically it is a telephoto as are all phone lenses - telephoto means that the lens is shorter than its effective focal length whereas on slrs wide angle lenses have to be reverse telephoto to clear the mirror. It is a telephoto of normal focal length, like the pancake lenses fitted to a number of digital cameras.

    Martin Bacon -

    A telephoto lens has a focal length longer than that of the track length of the lens assembly. Apple is using the term correctly.

    skydivertak - Réponse

    Could you please tell us what the image sensor is? I'm hoping for IMX260 or IMX377, probably the two best smartphone chips on the market today; if the nominal rated size of the main chip is "1/2.6" at 12 MP, the closest match I'm aware of in the Exmor lineup would be the 260 given unless its something brand new, that's the closet match to the specs given (at ~1/2.5 and 12 MP), and Sony only makes a few 1/2.6 chips, none near 12 MP, as well as the 260 being the sensor used in the also dual camera V10. I can't see any obvious candidates for the second sensor; the only 1/3.2 sensors Sony has are the 8 MPs. And I don't see any discussion of the front sensor here, though perhaps I'm just missing it.

    Have you figured out who is the sensor manufacturer?

    Miguel Ferreira - Réponse

    Smartphones even iPhones suffer from image noise during low light shooting. They use very small image sensors which can't gather enough light fast. So the software amplifies digitally the ISO creating image noise and deteriorating colors.

    I would prefer a bigger camera with a bigger image sensor with better image stabilization instead of two cameras. Ordinary users are impressed more from the two cameras and don't know the benefits of bigger image sensors.

    Agnostos Gnostos - Réponse

    I think Sony should be the manufacturer, OIS is not available for the telephoto lens.

    gr8sujit - Réponse

    The model is A1785 according to the first post. This means this is the Japan model. If what I hear is correct, this means that the chips in this model are different than those around the world. This has to do with the FeliCa chip that Apple said would be available in "iPhones sold in Japan." What I would like to know is what a teardown of a non-Japanese iphone 7 has in terms of NFC chips. I wonder because there would be a difference of "We only advertise FeliCa in Japan (but the hardware is there)" as opposed to "We only include the hardware for FeliCa in the Japanese SKUs, A1779 (iphone 7) or A1785 (iPhone 7 Plus)." As someone who travels to Japan (and has Suica/FeliCa cards), this would be useful to know.

Also if you look at the photo closely, there is a flex on the right side of the home button ( its on the left side on the 6 /6S series ) so I am kinda positive that the home button/touch ID is transferrable based on a close up of the photo with a zoom in the right side of the home button.

iTechshark MO - Réponse

I agree with you!

Kevin Stuckey -

OK, I see what your talking about. Their is also a little hump on the right that is probably the connection point. Looking at the screw in the center of the button, maybe it comes out the front like the track-pad on a macbook. That shield should be lots of fun, I am betting the LCD flex is glued over.

rneeley -

Yup that sounds right except that the screw is just sitting to hold the button on place and not to adjust its tactile feedback since its not mechanical.

iTechshark MO -

"Two separate sensors, two lenses, and two sets of optical image stabilizers." So OIS on both lenses/sensors?

Holger - Réponse

Yes indeed ! You got the right mate ! Despite people's claims on the telephoto lens not having the OiS it's crystal clear from this teardown that it indeed does have one

yazdanbanaji -

Based on Apple , its just one mechanical OIS and the second one is just software controlled so its just one OIS as far as I can tell.

iTechshark MO -

No I don't think so, the electromagnetic coils of the 56mm unit only move the lens back and forth for focusing. The 28mm unit you can clearly see the coils and the magnets that allow it to move side to side.

garyliao2001 -

You are right, didn't notice the coils at all.

iTechshark MO -

I can confirm that the touch ID/home button is screwed in a plate with 3 screws to pull it off and the button itself is screwed to the middle of the shield with one , cheers guys, its gonna be transferrable :)

How about gyro?

STM or Invensense?

john smith - Réponse

I am guessing the rectangular chip besides those front-end modules in step 14 is the gyro/accelometer. It becomes such a weird shape because Apple wants both a low-energy 3-axis and an accurate 6-axis in one module. If my theory is right, the marker on that chip hints STM.

Jie Zou -

It is the latest INVN chip

Someone who knows -

Hey someone who knows why are you so sure? In the 6 there were two separate gyros, a Bosch 3-axis and an Invensense 6-axis: http://www.chipworks.com/about-chipworks... Is this a new part (combo 3 and 6-axis)?

John -

It is 6-axis Invensense and yes, I am very sure for reasons not related to this article.

Someone who knows -

7 and 7 plus accelerometer response is different ,so wonder if 7 still use Bosch acce like iphone 6.

How does Apple get stereo from only one speaker? Or does the photo of the speaker in step 19 show a divider in the middle that "separates" two small speakers? If so, how does one call this "stereo" when the two speakers are so close together? And why do the diagrams on Apple's website show lines pointing to the two grilles on the bottom of the phone, with the legend describing them as "Stereo speakers", when the iFixit teardown shows that the left-hand grille doesn't actually have a speaker behind it, contrary to Apple's diagram? And why do some of Apple's own diagrams point to a supposed second speaker towards the top of the phone, though the iFixit teardown found no such speaker there?

johnsawyercjs - Réponse

The receiver speaker - that is, the speaker you hold up to your ear when you make a phone call, is the "second speaker" they're using for stereo sound now.

Dan Parsons -

Thanks. It took me a while to figure that out.

So it seems that the second speaker is a beefier version of the ear speaker at the top of the phone, shown above the display in step 5. If so, since this speaker is front-facing, and the speaker at the bottom is downward/side-facing, this might not give a normal stereo image, but it has the advantage of delivering sound along two planes instead of one, so that whether you're facing the front of the phone or its lower end, you'll still have one speaker pointed towards you, which should deliver better clarity than having neither speaker pointed towards you. Of course, if you have the phone sitting on a table and you're facing one of the two sides or the top end of the phone, you won't have a speaker pointed towards you, but you'll still have the front-facing speaker emitting sound up and out, and sound reflecting upward off the table from the bottom-facing speaker, so there will still be good diffusion of sound, and some stereo separation.

IPhone 7

Audio ICs

The iPhone 7 still uses the same Apple/Cirrus Logic 338S00105 Audio Codec as in the iPhone 6S, but the Audio Amplifier has changed to the new 338S00220. (previously 338S1285).

We found not just 2 but 3 Audio Amplifiers - we speculate there is one audio amplifier for for each of the two speakers, and the third amplifier is for the headphone via the Lightning port.

The third Audio amplifier is situated next to the Applications Processor Module with 3 black blobs on it. It was discovered during de-soldering of the A10 applications processor. When the blob was scraped off, it was an ‘oh wow, there are 3 audio amps!’ kind of discovery. Chipworks has a Basic Functional Analysis Report of the Apple/Cirrus Logic 338S1285.

Note******** ifixit teardown report only lists 2 audio amps ....Chipworks discovered the third amp

han - Réponse

You missed a third audio amplifier. Directly above the "A" in "A10" on the processor, there is a chip with 3 black blobs on it. It's the amplifier for the lightning port to headphone adapter.

spaceywilly - Réponse

Yes, that third amp is a significant discovery implying a major change to Apple's MFi specs. In which case its a huge reversal of position, and will lead to a flood of cheap analogue audio products previously not possible, not to mention significant confusion as to just exactly what a "Lightning" equipped product means. My adapter didn't work on my SE until I updated to iOS 10. That shouldn't have been necessary as Apple already has published Lightning audio specs -- unless they changed something significant. So suddenly its not an inexpensive digital adapter with a DAC and amp, its a very expensive port connector changer.

Harold - Réponse

The stereo speakers function in such a way, that if you do watch a video on your phone or if you tilt your phone sideways, there will be a left and right speaker, both working to create a stereo sound. Most people do use their iPhone sideways to view videos, so this will certainly be noticeable to them.

Jose Toscano - Réponse

I'd love to see a review of this. I can't imagine how they are going to make two different speakers sound the same, much less where one faces the listener, and the other points of to the side.

Mac 128 -

What about reassembly? It looks like a lot of the waterproofing is either a) lost, or b) significantly disturbed from the teardown. With reassembly, do we have to completely remove the waterproofing and reapply? If not, does it go back together imperfectly, due to gobs of the waterproofing building up during disassembly?

I wonder if you couldn't spray the entire internals with waterproofing, after the fact? It would make future mods/repairs basically impossible, but would improve/restore the initial waterproofing.

To all the rocket surgeons and techies out there, what're your thoughts?

I have a question. Did Apple use any technology from printed electronics, like silver ink, in the latest iPhone?

lol - Réponse

If history is any guide as ALL Apple products have InvenSense gyros then we will see an integrated single 6 Axis from InvenSense. The Apple Watch must use a single 6 axis for everything to reduce power.

The only question is did Apple use InveSense GPS navigation Software?

Apple obviously has reduced GPS run time and rides the 6 Axis to reduce power consumption by up to 80% off time. This is what InveSense software specializes in and it has to be in the iWatch.

Will Apple do their own dead reconning algorithms or use InveSense SW?

And I noticed that the silver screw female end that is supposed to be attached to the logic board wasn’t on the logic board it was attached to the cover would this cause the phone not to turn on?
