iFixit has posted its teardown of the iPhone 12 mini, and it discovered inside what appears clear from the surface: a smaller model of the iPhone 12, with no lacking options or elements. Nevertheless, a few of these elements—most notably the battery—are a bit smaller than they’re on this cellphone’s 6.1-inch massive brother.
iFixit discovered that the battery measures in at 8.57Wh. For comparability, the iPhone SE—which really has a bigger physique—has a smaller 6.96Wh battery, whereas the a lot bigger iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Professional each have 10.78Wh batteries. This maps fairly carefully to what battery exams have discovered: the iPhone 12 mini gives higher battery life than an iPhone SE or iPhone 8, however it might’t beat its bigger siblings.
Different shrunk-down elements discovered by iFixit embrace a smaller Taptic Engine and loudspeaker. Additionally, some display-related elements have been moved round, and there are solely two show cables (in comparison with the iPhone 12’s three).
