  • The brand new 2020 iPhone SE. Of all the crazy things to happen this year, Apple releasing

  • an affordable iPhone is up there with the craziest. Today we're going to pop the lid,

  • tear it down, and see what that proprietary taptic engine looks like from the inside.

  • It should be interesting.

  • Let's get started.

  • [Intro]

  • Like all the iPhones in the past 9 years, there are 2 pentalobe screws down at the bottom.

  • The star shaped pentalobe screws are super common, so I'll link a tool kit that I use

  • down in the video description. This iPhone is ip67 water-resistant, all while only costing

  • $399. The screws even have a little black gasket under the head to help keep water out.

  • Heat helps with getting the screen off the iPhone SE. There is a bead of sealant around

  • the opening that will also help keep liquid out of the phone. Once it's warmed up I can

  • use a large suction cup to lift up on the bottom edge, while popping it open with my

  • razor blade. Taking special care, of course, not to put too much pressure on the metal

  • frame because we'd hate to scratch it or anything.

  • The top of the phone needs to come down ever so slightly before the whole thing can fold

  • open like a book. I'm taking special care not to put any stress on those ribbon cables

  • along the right hand side because they can tear just like paper...and, well, if you think

  • this thing looks familiar, you're right. Pretty much all of the internal components of the

  • 2020 iPhone SE are interchangeable with the iPhone 8, like the speakers, rear camera,

  • and according to iFixit, even the screens are interchangeable. The battery however,

  • while the same size and capacity as the iPhone 8, is not interchangeable The connector's

  • different.

  • Hidden under this metal plate with the 4 screws is the battery Lego-style connector. I can

  • pop that off with my plastic pry tool and then work my way up to the top metal plate

  • and it's 3 screws. Nearly every screw in this phone is a different size and shape and requires

  • 4 different screwdriver heads to take apart. After the 2 protective plates are gone, I

  • can pop off the three screen ribbon cables just like 3 little Legos. One thing I am happy

  • about though is that the screen is the first thing to come off on the phone. And even better,

  • the iPhone 8 replacement screens are currently selling for about $25 or $30 right now. So

  • if they really are interchangeable, it's one of the cheapest third party screen repairs

  • of all time. Today though, we're going to keep focused on that vibrator.

  • First let's get this battery out.

  • Another thumbs up to Apple is their magical battery pull tabs. Some manufacturers make

  • battery replacements impossible by gluing their batteries permanently into the phone.

  • I don't want to name any names, but it rhymes with Samsung. Batteries don't last forever.

  • I'm glad we can get this one out without exploding anything. Even if the battery pull tabs do

  • break sometimes.

  • This battery's a rather tiny 1,821 milliamp hour. Now that we have the battery out, we

  • can see that the internal frame of the phone is metal. And as we know, metal isn't very

  • see-through which makes a transparent iPhone SE pretty difficult. What we did for the Teardown

  • Skin was mirror the internal image so that when looked at from behind, everything lines

  • up exactly where it should be inside the phone. And of course, I might be a bit biased, but

  • I think it turned out pretty darn good. We even ripped off the metal plate covering the

  • A13 processor so we could see the brains of the operation. I'll leave a link for my Teardown

  • Skin from dbrand down in the video description. We already cover most of the new phones and

  • just added the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7.

  • One place where this phone does sacrifice a bit though is with the camera. There's only

  • one. While most phones nowadays are shipping with 2, 3, or even more perspectives than

  • that.

  • After pulling away the two screws and metal bracket, the rear camera comes loose. It's

  • a 12 megapixel unit and does have optical image stabilization. I'll pull the SIM card

  • tray out next and unclip 3 more ribbon cables down here by the motherboard...just like little

  • Legos. Apple's actually doing a pretty good job when it comes to the whole saving the

  • planet thing. A lot of the components inside of this iPhone SE are made from recycled materials.

  • For example, this motherboard, which is held in place by 10 screws, is assembled with 100%

  • recycled tin in the solder. Apple does still like to be difficult though with 2 more random

  • screws up here in the top that screw directly into the frame. I don't know what this thing

  • does but it's probably important.

  • After one more little ribbon cable connector, the motherboard comes free. And as always,

  • even though this phone is water resistant, there are still water damage indicators inside

  • that'll tattle on you if they ever get wet. No phone is waterproof and these stickers

  • will turn pink if the phone senses any moisture internally. And here is the motherboard, with

  • the same footprint as the iPhone 8. It has upgraded chips to still be relevant in 2020.

  • Now that the motherboard is out, we can see more of the metal backing, along with the

  • wireless charging coil in the center, and the long charging port ribbon that's tucked

  • up underneath the motherboard with it's 11 different sized and shaped screws holding

  • it in place.

  • I can remove this small metal plate and keep it organized right next to the screws that

  • it came out with. And now we get a good look at the loudspeaker. For a company who hates

  • people getting inside of their own phones, they sure plaster their logo everywhere. You

  • might have noticed the difference between most Androids and iPhones. Androids do tend

  • to be a little more consolidated with less parts and screws inside. While iPhones have

  • a lot more little parts, brackets, and screws all in a very specific order to remove.

  • Finally though, it's time to take a look at this taptic engine. So haptic feedback is

  • the way your phone communicates with you through vibrations. Normal vibrators that have a lopsided

  • spiny bit to cause vibrations are called eccentric rotating mass vibrators. But Apple was disappointed

  • in the split second it takes for a motor to spin up before it gets to full vibration capacity

  • so they invented this guy: the taptic engine, which has no rotating bits.

  • Peeling off the top of this electric sardine can, we can see that there are coiled copper

  • wires, magnets in the middle, and metal springs on either end to cushion it's back and forth

  • movement, along with quite a bit of oil. Which probably acts as the vibrator's internal lubricant.

  • Apple says that this linear actuator is able to hit full power much quicker than the rotating

  • mass vibrators found in other phones, which gives it more abilities. Instead of one power

  • level, you know, on or off, this guy's copper coils allow a range of different levels of

  • haptic feedback and can provide it instantly.

  • Personally I think it's a little overkill, but Apple apparently feels very strongly about

  • good vibrations. Apple also feels strongly about a complicated assembly apparently, with

  • two more small screws drilled directly into the bottom of the frame.

  • Getting a closer look at the water proofing inside of the phone, we see that the mesh

  • for the bottom holes is actually pretty thick. It's like a whole filter instead of just one

  • mesh screen. The red lightning charging port is capable of charging at 18 watts, if you

  • buy your own charger. And does have a white rubber ring around the tip to help keep water

  • out.

  • Another good thing that Apple is doing, before I jump into some of the bad things, is that

  • for the metal frame, Apple is prioritizing aluminum that is smelted using hydroelectricity

  • rather than aluminum that is melted with fossil fuels. Unfortunately though, after all that

  • effort to be green, Apple went and used permanent adhesive again on the back glass making it

  • impossible for the average person to replace. And apple charges $269 to replace the back

  • glass themselves, which is more than half the price of the phone, and completely unnecessary.

  • Of course, where there's a will there's a way, and there's actually some really cool

  • laser separator technology that let's third party repair shops replace the back glass

  • cheaper. I'll link the laser video down in the video description. Apparently, Apple has

  • a really cool machine of their own called Daisy that can tear down and recycle up to

  • 200 devices an hour. Let me know down in the comments if you think Apple should let us

  • come take a closer look at that thing. Personally, I'm glad that Apple is using their old phone

  • designs with upgraded hardware. Phones are getting way too expensive these days and it's

  • nice to see a phone this good with both water-resistance and wireless charging all for less that $400.

  • At this price point, I bet that Apple is definitely going to steal away some Android users, and

  • after a few more innocent purchases like Air Pods and an Apple Water, they'll never be

  • able to escape. It's a slippery slope.

  • Finally, with the screen connected and battery in place, the phone is able to turn on. I'll

  • get the metal plates back in place to help keep the connections from popping off. And

  • even without that taptic engine inside, the phone still turns on and functions like normal.

  • Kind of cool. I'm curious though, if you're an Android user, does this phone tempt you

  • into switching sides? Let me know down in the comments.

  • I'll leave a link for my Teardown Skin down in the video description so you can have all

  • the cool bits from the inside shown off on the outside. Come hang out with me on Instagram

  • and Twitter. Hit that subscribe button if you haven't already. And thanks a ton for

  • watching. I'll see you around.
