iFixit has posted its teardown of the new iPhone 6s. The device launches today, September 25th. Watch this video to see what's new.

One year ago, we tore down Apple's radical new iPhone 6—and it didn't do half bad. Now, Apple say they've crammed a boatload of new technology into a phone that's imperceptibly thicker, just a few grams heavier, and several shades pinker: iPhone 6s. What does that mean, and how will it affect the repairability of our favorite fruit-based phone?

Highlights:
● The 6s is a hair larger than the 6 (138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm, vs. 138.1 x 67.0 x 6.9 mm), and it's stamped with a new model number: A1688.
● The 6s has also packed on a bit of weight when compared to its older sibling, weighing in at 5.04 ounces vs. the 6's 4.55 ounces.
● 4.7-inch 1334 × 750 pixels (326 ppi) Retina HD display with 3D Touch. The display assembly weighs in at a whopping 60 grams—a 15 gram increase over the one found in the iPhone 6.
● The Lithium-ion pack comes in at 3.8 V, 6.55 Whr, and 1715 mAh. It's a small but notable decrease from the 1810 mAh battery in last year's iPhone 6.
● 12 MP iSight camera supporting 4K video recording with 1.22µ pixels, and a 5 MP FaceTime HD camera
● Apple A9 APL0898 SoC + Samsung LPDDR4 RAM (as denoted by the markings K3RG1G10BM-BGCH)
● Qualcomm MDM9635M LTE Cat. 6 Modem (vs. the MDM9625M found in the iPhone 6)

My question is will the bigger 6 and 6 batteries fit in the place of these new smaller batteries.

I don't think so. The battery is a bit shorter to fit the Taptic Engine.

I didn't figure they just made a smaller capacity battery but I was hoping lol.
