iFixit has posted its teardown of the new iPhone SE.

The SEquel to the popular budget-friendly iPhone has finally arrived. It's been called a "parts bin" phone, and we hope that's true! The specs certainly seem to agree

Highlights:
● The SE is 21% lighter than the 11 Pro
● Taptic Engine and main speaker are interchangeable between the 8 and SE
● 6.96 Wh battery with different connector
● New SE lacks 3D Touch
● Tests show the iPhone 8 camera works just fine in the SE, and vice versa
● Intel 9960 P10PSV modem
● USI 339S00648 WiFi/Bluetooth SoC
● The 8 display works on the SE, and vice versa

Repairability: 6 out of 10
● The two most commonly replaced components, display and battery, remain straightforward to access with the proper knowledge and tools.
● Most components are modular and independently replaceable, including many that are cross-compatible with iPhone 8.
● IP67 seals complicate repair, but make the need for difficult liquid damage repairs less likely.
● While the overall construction is pretty repair-friendly, you’ll still need up to four different driver types for many repairs.
● The fragile glass back is impractical to replace.
