First take: 3D Touch adds new depth in navigation for iPhone 6s, 6s Plus

iPhone 6S teardown confirms smaller battery, easy screen repairs.

The teardown team has become among the first to get their hands on the new iPhone 6S, and while other early adopters are likely at home caressing their new smartphone, iFixit has been quick to pull theirs to pieces.

This size reduction, which Apple promises won’t make for a reduction in battery life, is likely due to the new Taptic Engine under the hood, which iFixit notes “takes up a large chunk of space.” The display is chunkier than before, weighing in at 15g heavier at 60g, due to the extra capacitive sensors under the hood that enable 3D Touch. Ion-X glass, the same stuff found on some of the Apple Watch models, can also be found on the iPhone 6S, likely making the device less shatter-proof than its predecessors. iFixit’s disassembly also reveals some changes in the camera department. It notes that the display removal process is nice and easy which should simplify screen repairs, and praises the straightforward battery removal process. It’s not all good news, though. iFixit moans that Touch ID’s pairing with the logic board might make repairs tricky, as does Apple’s use of proprietary pentalobe screws on the exterior, requiring a specialty screwdriver to remove.
