iMac with Retina 5K display gets torn down to show how it put in so many pixels

Sales of the new Retina 5K iMac have begun and a new tear down of Apple's latest Mac shows that its construction is very nearly the same as 2013's 27-inch iMac. It also shows that the 5120x2880 resolution display itself is made by LG.

iPad Air 2 tear down reveals A8X processor, 2 GB RAM, smaller battery

Apple's latest iPad Air 2 has been torn down to reveal the slim tablet's internals. With Apple shaving 18 percent of the thickness from last year's iPad Air model, the new Air comes with a smaller battery. Given that the company is still advertising the same 10-hour battery life, Apple has made considerable improvements to the software and other hardware components to make the iPad Air 2 efficient. Along with the slimmer battery, we also see the Apple A8X processor alongside 2 GB of RAM.

iPhone 6 Plus gets torn down, monstrous 2915 mAh battery found inside

We all know the drill my now. Or rather the screwdriver. The moment a new iPhone hits retail — in this case the iPhone 6 Plus — it gets picked up and torn down. That means every screw removed. Every chip examined. Every part explored. So, any really big surprises in Apple's really big phone?

iFixit tears down the new 16GB iPod touch

Any time a new Apple product — like the just-updated 16GB iPod touch — gets released, it's a safe bet a tear-down will follow. The tear down will show two things: what new parts Apple has managed to cram inside, and what old parts they've kept along for the ride. Not surprisingly, for the price-reduced iPod touch, we're getting entirely the latter. This is the same iPod touch Apple introduced in 2012 alongside the iPhone 5, just stripped down to 16GB of NAND Flash storage.

iFixit takes apart the iPad Air, doesn't score well for repairability

As is customary with any new Apple release, the guys over at iFixit have got their hands on an iPad Air and proceeded to do what they do best; take it apart. It's as cool as ever to see what's inside, but the downer is that the Air scores pretty low on the repairability front.

iFixit tears down the new MacBook Pro Retina 13-inch and 15-inch

If you enjoy knowing all about the bits and bobs that go into the technology you purchase, it should come as no surprise to know that iFixIt has already got their constructively deconstructive hands on a pair of new MacBook Pro Retina's  and as such, have already began tearing them down.

The 13-inch is still under way but the 15-inch has been spalyed out in all it's splendid glory and to no one's surprise, there's a lot of technology jammed into that beautiful little chassis. Some favorable highlights as noted by iFixIt about the 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina can be found below.
