IPhone 7 Plus Disassembly report, contents filled with latest technology are like this

"IFixit" which breaks apart at the fastest when the latest device appears will disassemble the iPhone 7 Plus, which was on sale on September 16, 2016, immediately disappearing, dual lens cameras that appeared on the iPhone 7 Plus and the latest It is approaching the appearance of "Taptic Engine" which produces a feeling of depression of A10 processor, home button.

IPhone 7 Plus Teardown - iFixit

IPhone 7 Plus obtained by iFixit. In order to realize the world's fastest disjoint, iFixit said that it is decomposing by getting the real machine in Japan with a time difference of 16 hours from the United States.

Antenna split line drastically decreased back side. Since the earphone jack has been discontinued from iPhone 7 generation, an adapter that converts Lightning terminal and 3.5 mm mini jack is included.

A dual lens type camera that can be said as the biggest change of the iPhone 7 Plus. The design process of the body connected to the lens has changed drastically.

Start decomposition. First, remove the two screws next to the Lightning terminal. This screw is a type called "penta lobe screw" whose screw head is a star (pentagon).

Take the screws, with suction cups at the top and bottom "ISclackSeparate the display from the main unit using.

Put the iFixit original "opening pick" in the place where the gap is empty and completely remove it.

When trying to separate the display, it was only possible to open in the right direction like this due to the arrangement of the cables. Even in invisible places, changes have been found from previous models.

It is a stupid and open place. A black line that crosses the screen seems to be an adhesive.

Three special screws are used for attaching the metal cover covering the cable terminal with three grooves.

A speaker is settled in the area where the earphone jack was located.

And equipped with Taptic Engine that creates its own click feeling.

On double-sided tape adhering the battery, since the tape pulling at the time of detachment is pitched 3, pulling all this ......

Battery is separated.

The battery is 3.82 volts and 11.1 Wh and the capacity is 2900 mAh and it is slightly increased from 2750 mAh (3.8 volts · 10.45 Wh) of the previous model iPhone 6s Plus. However, further down from the iPhone 6 Plus 2915 mAh is down.

Next, separate the camera. Thus, although it is one unit, it seems that the cables are coming out from each.

When disassembling the sensor, the same wide-angle camera as before and cameras equipped with newly mounted optical zoom lenses came out. Both are equipped with sensors with 12 million pixels.

Remove the camera, then remove the antenna. First of all, remove the flexible cable connected to the antenna from the logic board with tweezers ......

Remove the antenna that is a plastic part.

Finally it reached the logic board. The top is covered with something like a black sheet.

When you remove the electromagnetic seal (EMI sticker) that blocks noise, it is finally the appearance of the processor.

This is the whole of the logic board.
Red: The heart of iPhone 7 Plus "A10 Fusion chip" and Samsung 3 GB LPDDR 4 RAM
Orange: Qualcomm "MDM 9645 M"(LTE chip)
Yellow: Skyworks "78100-20" (communication amplifier)
Green: Avago Technologies "AFEM-8065" (power amplifier module)
Blue: Avago Technologies "AFEM-8055" (power amplifier module)

Since more chips are mounted on the back side, it is described in 3 times separately.
Violet: Qualcomm "WTR 3925"(Radio transceiver)
Blue: Qualcomm "WTR 4905"(Multimode LTE radio transceiver)
Red: Toshiba "THGBX6T0T8LLFXF" (128 GB flash memory)
Light blue: Qualcomm "PMD 9645" (power management IC)
Green: Dialog "338S00225" (power management IC)
Yellow: NXP "67 V 04" (NFC controller)
Orange: "339S00199" (Wi-Fi module)

The back of the logic board.
Orange: Cirrus Logic "338S00220 (2 pieces)"
Violet: NXP "610 A 38"
Red: Apple / Cirrus Logic "338S00105" (Audio IC)
Yellow: Lattice Semiconductor "ICESLP 4K"
Green: Skyworks "13702 - 20"
Light blue: Skyworks "13703-21"
Blue frame: Avago Technologies "LFI 630 183439"

Yellow: Texas Instruments "65750 A 0 P"
Orange: Texas Instruments "64 W 0 Y 5 P"
Red: TDK EPCOS "D5315"

Then separate the speakers. It is a unit like a thin board.

Unit only. The cable to connect with the logic board is extending.

This unit is hidden behind the speaker hole of the main unit.

For iPhone 7 Plus with waterproof performance, a rubber seal is added to each part of the main body. A black rubber seal also in a small hole for removing the SIM card tray.

The SIM card tray itself is also equipped with a black seal that prevents water intrusion.

Speaker and microphone to listen to the sound of the phone, disassembled the part where the FaceTime camera is installed.

Around the camera and speakers, the flexible cable is crawling quite complicatedly.

When disassembled it looks like this. The camera is integrated with the cable, but the speaker is separate, just the state where the four terminals are in contact.
Red: FaceTime camera (in camera)
Orange: Mike
Yellow green: proximity sensor + ambient light sensor
Yellow: Speaker (also used for stereo playback)

Looking at the newly turned home button from the back side looks like this. There is not much cable around here.

The home button is fixed firmly with screws from the back.

Remove the home button. It seems to be integrated with the surface glass, but it is a different part.

The home button assembly looks something like this.

You can also check packing for waterproofing in the silent mode switch.

It is iFixit that believes in disjointness, but it seems that only the volume button could not be disassembled. It seems that a firm waterproofing measure is adopted for that.

IPhone 7 Plus finally broken up. It seems that the degree of difficulty of disassembly has not changed so much because it is a basic design that does not differ much from iPhone 6s Plus.
