It’s iPhone launch day, which means it’s time for a teardown video. YouTube channel PBKreviews appears to be the first one to put out a teardown video of the new iPhone 15 Pro. This is the smaller Pro model, so that means we won’t get to see the inner workings of the new camera on the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

This particular model is the A3011. And you can see inside that there is a pretty large, L-shaped battery in there. Above the new Taptic Engine, which is actually a bit smaller than in previous iPhones. Apple said that it was able to make it use a smaller footprint, without making the experience any different.


The video came to a conclusion that the iPhone 15 Pro gets a repairability score of 7 out of 10. That is the same score that iFixit had given the iPhone 14 Pro last year, but it was recently lowered to a 4 out of 10, due to the parts pairing issue. iPhone’s are not known to be super repairable, but the iPhone 15 series is a lot more repairable this year, due to some changes that Apple made. Including the back glass which is now easier to repair and also much cheaper.

So what’s the purpose of this video?

Typically, the reason why someone might watch this video is, for educational purposes. Say you need to replace the battery, or maybe the display of your new iPhone 15 Pro. Though we hope that’s not the case already. This video can help you figure out how to do just that.

Apple hasn’t yet provided any instructions on how to fix your iPhone 15 Pro. That should be coming soon. But at this point, if there’s something wrong with your iPhone 15 Pro, it’s a better idea to take it back to Apple or your carrier.

You can watch the full video down below. It’s a fairly short, 11-minute video, all things considered.
