Is The iPhone X Hard to Fix
iFixit is the site that specializes in the thorough and methodical removal of electronic duplicates to get to the bottom of how easy it is to replace the parts - and to simply give us an insight into what they look like inside. Now the trip has come to Apple's precious top model iPhone X.
After dismantling the phone, iFixit ended up awarding the new iPhone model 6 out of 10 possible points on the so-called repairability scale, which is the same sum as the iPhone 8 and the new Pixel 2 XL.
Simple battery and display, twisted cables
Like on iPhone 8, iFixit noticed that both display and battery relatively easy to remove on iPhone X. The latter has four pull tabs, these small pieces of plastic you can pull in to get out of the battery, which makes the process quite straightforward.
As for the screen, the site writes that, fortunately, it can be removed without having to remove the much-featured Face ID sensor, which is positive considering that this module contains quite sensitive technology.
On the positive side, Apple has also used a lot of screws instead of glue, but the phone uses the so-called Pentalobe screws, which require special screwdrivers, as well as the usual Philips screws.
Otherwise, on the negative side, according to iFixit, the phone has a small handheld cable system that binds together components that do not have anything to do with each other in such a way that the components are extra demanding to replace. Like other watertight mobiles, water seals also offer challenges, but at the same time, the seal makes repairs less likely initially.
