iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Teardown: Bigger Phone, Bigger BatteryChris Mills9/18/14 11:08pmFiled to: iphoneiphone 6iphone 6 plusappleiphonesphonesmobileifixitteardowns506EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkiFixit, famous breakers of things, were Down Under to scoop up an iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as soon as it went on sale. Now, they're teasing the rest of us with a step-by-step liveblog of the teardown process. AdvertisementThe disassembly isn't the simplest — you have to extract two proprietary Pentalobe screws, and then lever the entire front display assembly away from the rest of the body with a suction cup, being careful not to rip the TouchID sensor wire clean off.The 6 Plus is rocking a 2915mAh battery, which is nearly double the 1560mAh cell in the iPhone 5S. However, compared to other 5.5-inch phones, it's a bit of a disappointment: the OnePlus One is packing a 3100mAh cell, and the Galaxy Note 3 (which, admittedly, is a bit better endowed in the size department) has 3200mAh up its sleeve. The teardown boys have also confirmed that 1GB of RAM is powering the 6 Plus. That doesn't seem like much compared to the 2-3GB that high-end Android phones are packing these days; but slow performance certainly hasn't been a complaint of all the recent reviews.
