Unveiling the new line of Haswell powered MacBook Air's at WWDC 2013, Apple touted some really impressive battery life, and in part at least, some of that may be down to a larger battery. The folks at iFixit got hold of a new 13-inch Air and did their thing on it, and revealed a couple of interesting facts about what lies inside.
Those teardown fanatics at iFixit have been at it again, this time with the new 16GB iPod touch. Since the new one is virtually identical to the current 5th generation device, you wouldn't expect there to be much in the way of internal differences. And, you'd be right.
The new Mac mini has received its own teardown courtesty of iFixIt and reveals that it is the most repairable and upgradeable device Apple has released in quite a while. Adding another drive or upgrading the RAM is a super easy task causing the Mac mini to earn an 8 out of 10 repairability score. Not bad at all.
It didn't take long for the guys over at iFixIt to get their hands on the new 13" retina MacBook Pro and give it their typical teardown treatment. While it's slightly more recyclable and repairable than it's 15" counterpart, it still only achieved a 2 out of 10 repairability score from the folks over at iFixIt.
We've already seen the iPod touch 5 torn down so it's only fair that the iPod Nano 7 get the same treatment. Since the iPod nano is quite bit larger than its predecessor, it makes repairability a little more economical and realistic, but not by much.
If you've been wanting to know what the inside of the iPhone 5 will look like, here's your answer. The folks over at iPhone-Garage have gotten their hands on one a bit early and managed to do what all of us DIY'ers love to do more than anything - tear it down!
The Retina display-packing MacBook Pro that was announced at WWDC has been meticulously disassembled, as you might expect, everything is glued or soldered in place, including RAM, battery packs, and the display.
