New iPhone 14 it has one feature that hasn’t been talked about as much – the glass on the back is now easier to repair. The casing is a legacy from the iPhone 13 but the iPhone 14 can be opened from the front and back, whereas all other iPhones since the iPhone 5 era required you to remove the screen first and made back repairs a nightmare.
The iFixit team performed a teardown revealing all the details about the inside of the iPhone 14.
Apple did not mention the fact that it completely redesigned the iPhone 14 internally, since the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max still use the older style of architecture that is more difficult to repair. The iFixit team also notes that the design of the aluminum mid-frame and antenna required careful rethinking. Apple here had to use a lot more glue to seal both sides of the phone and reattach the internal components.
Opening the phone from the front reveals the display connection cables and a metal sheet that protects the rest of the components. Removing the backing requires some heat, a suction cup and a tool to loosen the glue.
The back opens to the right and reveals the internal components as well as the metal brackets that help hold the back in place. The rest goes as expected with the main components held in place by brackets, screws and cables.
It’s worth noting that Apple still combines individual components into each iPhone, so you need to verify the back of the glass after a change. Software-locked repairs are one of the only downsides, and so the iPhone 14 garners a 7/10 iFixit repairability score.
