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? 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.

  • Apple A8 APL1011 SoC

  • Qualcomm MDM9625M LTE Modem

Check out the rest of the iPhone 6 Plus laid bare and then let me know if anything else leaps out at you. Personally, I really want to try that battery.
