iPhone 12 mini Teardown – iFixit

Introduction

The mini has landed! It’s iPhone 12 teardown time—again—and while the phone may be small, this teardown is bigger than ever. It’s so big, we’re splitting it into two parts! Check out part one of our iPhone 12 mini teardown below, and tune in tomorrow for part two, where we dish on all the chips and other 5G hardware differences between the US version and those sold to our friends in the EU. (Yes, we tore down both.)

Meanwhile, we’re chasing a whale of a teardown week! Arm your harpoons and take a look at our Xbox Series X teardown, a side-by-side PlayStation 5/Xbox comparison, and oodles of live video teardowns.

Feeling overwhelmed by all the new tech? Fix what matters instead! We’ve put together a list of our favorite gifts—from our workshop to yours, to help you and your favorite fixer keep the repair spirit going strong. Want some more community spirit?
