iFixit has posted its teardown of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 revealing information about its internal components.

Double the iPhone, double the teardown! With the iPhone 6 Plus laid out for inspection, we turn our attention to the smaller iPhone 6—though at 4.7", it's still a giant among iPhones. What was so big that Apple couldn't fit it into the familiar form factor? Let's shake it out onto the teardown table and find out!

Highlights:
● Apple A8 processor with 64-bit architecture
● M8 second-generation motion coprocessor
● 16, 64, or 128 GB onboard storage capacity
● 4.7-inch 1334x750 pixels (326 ppi) Retina HD display
● 8 MP iSight camera (with 1.5µ pixels and phase-detection autofocus) and a 1.2 MP FaceTime camera
● Touch ID home button fingerprint sensor, barometer, 3-axis gyro, accelerometer, ambient light sensor
● 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi‑Fi + Bluetooth 4.0 + NFC + 20-band LTE
iPhone 6 is model A1586
● 1810 mAh, 3.82 V Lithium-ion Polymer battery with an energy rating of 6.91 Wh. Turning it over, the rating improves to 7.01 Wh! Strangely there are two sets of markings on this battery.

Repairability Score: 7
● Continuing the trend from the iPhone 5 series, the display assembly comes out of the phone first, simplifying screen repairs.
● The battery is straightforward to access. Removing it requires a proprietary pentalobe screwdriver and knowledge of the adhesive removal technique, but is not difficult.
● The fingerprint sensor cable has been re-routed, fixing a significant repairability issue with the iPhone 5s and making the phone much safer to open. (On the 5s, the cable is easily torn if a user is not careful while opening the phone.)
● The iPhone 6 still uses proprietary Pentalobe screws on the exterior, requiring a specialty screwdriver to remove.
● Apple does not share repair information for the iPhone 6 with independent repair shops or consumers.

Why not make it twice as thick and equip with a considerably larger capacity battery?

How does making it thick make it any different? The 6 is larger but the thinness is the same as the one in the 6 but with more mAh. So why not more of that or better yet more power efficiency.

Wow it looks so interesting how that was assembled in that small casing.
