Experts have assessed the maintainability of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro

IFixit specialists tested the maintainability of two smartphones from Apple’s new line: iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.

During disassembly, it turned out that the design of smartphones is almost identical. The models have the same capacity batteries, and the biggest difference between the pro-version is the presence of a telephoto lens and LIDAR sensor. The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro received a rating of 6 out of 10. A similar rating was given to the iPhone 11 last year. Experts noted the ease of replacement of most important components. But the enhanced protection against moisture complicates the repair process. In iFixit also criticized the glass surface, as when falling the probability of damage increases many times compared to other materials. The process of disassembling the iPhone 12, which was carried out by iFixit staff, can be seen in the following video:
