Disassembling iPhone SE from iFixit reveals which parts come from older iPhones


Critics of the new iPhone SE 2020 are here and the same is true I fix itDisassembly of the device. While the $ 400 handset has a design similar to that of an iPhone 8, disassembly reveals that it is surprisingly modern inside.

Specifically, the phone includes an A13 bionic SoC with a third generation neural engine. This, according to I fix it, has been extracted from the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. It’s significantly more powerful than the A11 Bionic chip in the iPhone 8, and it should allow the product to handle the workload you throw at it.

“Apple didn’t have to give the SE its brand new A13 Bionic chip, but they did, guaranteeing that this phone will last for many years to come,” I fix it written. The SE also appears to include Gigabit class LTE with 2 × 2 MIMO and 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 with 2 × 2 MIMO + Bluetooth 5.0 + NFC, which are also found in the iPhone 11.

A number of other components appear to come from the iPhone 8, including the Retina HD 4.7 display with a resolution of 1334 x 750 and True Tone. Unfortunately, there is no 3D key.

“Before we get the idea of ​​adding the 3D button to your new iPhone SE, we tried it, and it doesn’t work,” I fix it warns.

The phone includes a 12-megapixel wide-angle rear camera and a 7-megapixel front camera as well as a second-generation Touch ID sensor, both of which are most likely from an iPhone 8.

The fact that the latest iPhone contains so many returned parts is good news for anyone who wants to repair their phone themselves. “Spare parts should be easier to find – and the reuse of existing manufacturing lines overall produces less waste,” says I fix it.
