Repair expert iFixit carried out the usual disassembly of Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro and highlighted the phone’s huge battery, improved TrueDepth camera and small adjustments to the internal layout of the phone in the preliminary report. Like the iPhone 13 and many previous models, the iPhone 13 Pro is sealed with adhesive. A series of cables are again placed on the left side of the case. The cables are connected to a logic board, which is inside the case. The position has been changed upwards to accommodate an L-shaped battery. This design borrows from the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
According to the data of iFixit, the rated capacity of the 2095mAh battery is 11.97 Wh, and the measured capacity is 12.11Wh. In comparison, last year’s iPhone 12 Pro had a battery capacity of 10.78Wh. Repair experts pointed out that the battery of the iPhone 13 Pro can be replaced, but doing so will trigger a system warning on the iPhone to remind users not to use fakes.
In order to reduce the size of the iPhone’s “bangs”, this year’s TrueDepth array adopts a more compact design, combining the flood illuminator and dot-matrix projector into one module, which is placed between the front color and infrared cameras. Compared with 2020, Apple installed the iPhone’s ear speakers in its casing instead of installing the component on the phone’s display. This is a relatively large change. The shape of the speakers has changed from a rectangle to a square, although This change is unlikely to affect audio quality.
On the back, the three-camera array of the iPhone 13 Pro is larger than that of the iPhone 12 Pro, which may be to meet the needs of a larger and better wide-angle lens, a new telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom, and a faster ultra-wide module and autofocus. Required.
Carefully observe the logic board and the nearby internal structure, you can find that the combination of the digital-to-analog converter and the cable has changed, and the redesigned sensor cable is particularly noteworthy. In the previous iPhone, the digital sensor and display cable are separate components and require separate connectors. This year’s iPhone changes also include a label for the shielding layer of the A15 bionic processor. Finally, the haptic engine of the iPhone 13 Pro seems to be smaller than that of the iPhone 12 Pro.
A more comprehensive report, including a survey of TrueDepth sensors, logic boards, and component changes, is expected to be released in the next few days.
