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? According to iFixit:
In line with rumors, the battery is rated at 3.82 V and 11.1 Wh of energy, for a total of 2915 mAh—nearly double the capacity of the 1560 mAh unit in the iPhone 5s, and slightly larger than the 2800 mAh burner in the Galaxy S5.
Just like the iPhone 5s, the 6 Plus features an 8 MP (with 1.5µ pixels) ƒ/2.2 aperture rear-facing camera. The 6 Plus brings two new additions to the table: optical image stabilisation, and "Focus Pixel" phase-detection autofocus.
