A couple of days after disassembling the 4-inch iPhone SE, the iFixit team has just performed a teardown of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. As it turns out, the device combines the design of the iPad Air lineup with the internals used in the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Unfortunately, this device is very difficult to repair, so its repairability score is only 2 out of 10.
Chipworks has recently posted the first teardown of the newly released 4-inch iPhone SE. As can be seen on the images below, the updated smartphone is a some kind of mixture of components and design peculiarities of the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. If you want to get more details about the internals of the iPhone SE, keep reading this post.
A new photo showing something similar to the iPhone 7 with edge to edge display has recently appeared on the Chinese social network Weibo.

If you want to take a closer look at the leaked photo, you can do this below.
It is Sunday today, which means it’s high time I told you about the most interesting articles of the past seven days.

According to the latest report from usually-reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will make the 2017 iPhone completely different from its predecessor, the iPhone 7. The expert believes that the company will equip its new phone with a glass body similar to the one iPhone 4 had and an AMOLED display.
Just as we all expected, Apple has today unveiled the 4-inch iPhone SE. The handset is the first 4-inch smartphone released by Apple since 2013 and in terms of design it’s quite similar to the iPhone 5s. When it comes to the hardware specs, however, it’s absolutely different from its predecessor.
On Monday, Apple will hold a special event for reporters devoted to several new devices. Since the media event is just around the corner, it’s high time we told you about what to expect from Apple’s March 21st presentation.
According to the images that were first spotted on the Chinese website called Digi.tech.qq.com, the widely-rumored iPhone 7 may get a new 7.04 watt-hours battery. Currently, the iPhone 6s is equipped with a 6.61 watt-hours and the older iPhone 6 - with a 7.01 watt-hours battery. Additional details about the components, just like the origin of the photos, remain unknown, so it’s rather unclear whether we should believe what we see or not.
According to the leaked image showing the retail packaging of the upcoming iPhone SE, the handset will have a base storage of 16GB and NFC for Apple Pay. The photo has been first spotted on the Chinese social network Weibo, so its origin is rather questionable. Anyway, the image reveals the specs of the new 4-inch iPhone and confirms previous rumors about the device.
Another alleged image of the iPhone 7 surfaced on the Internet yesterday. This time it emphasizes the antenna bands. According to previous rumors, Apple wants to get rid the antenna lines across the back panel and move them the top and bottom parts of the device.
The photo below confirms the rumors and at the same time matches another image that appeared online yesterday.
Another alleged photo of the back panel of the new iPhone 7 Plus appeared on the Internet today. The one with the dual camera, as you may guess.
On the image, we can see one large cutout with two cameras. As it was mentioned previously, the new camera will have 2-3x zoom capabilities. A number of manufacturers are already working on the redesigned sensor for Apple.
An image showing something what appears to be chassis for the upcoming full-size iPhone 7 has been recently shared by Nowhereelse. If legitimate, the photo proves that Apple has finally got rid of the antenna breaks across the iPhone back panel and moved them to the upper and lower parts of the handset to make its design more sleek and refined. Apart from that, the camera cutout shown in the photo seems to be larger than the one of the iPhone 6 and 6s, hinting at the possible use of a bigger photo sensor.
As you may know, on March 21 Apple will hold a special media-event dedicated to a possible introduction of company’s new devices. One of the most anticipated of them is the iPhone SE.
DigiTimes, a reliable Taiwanese newspaper, reports that Apple has plans to increase the size of the larger iPhone to 5.8 inches. This change may happen in 2018, although some sources expect it to be accomplished even in 2017.
It is Sunday today, which means it’s high time we discussed the most interesting posts of the past seven days. Most of the articles this week deal with the long-awaited 4-inch iPhone SE, iPhone 7 and its specs as well as with Apple’s plans and technologies for the upcoming handsets and tablets.
