Repairing Apple Inc. (AAPL)’s iPhone 6 Is a Walk In the Park: Kyle Wiens

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)‘s new iPhone might have a couple of things going against it at the moment in terms of iOS 8 updates and bending controversies, but the gadget is a design marvel when it comes to repair and service. Kyle Wiens who is CEO and Co-founder of IFixit talked about, how how Apple has progressed on the design front with its new device, on Bloomberg.

“[…] There was significant design intent in this phone to make it easier to repair and for that we are really appreciative and I think it’s a sign of a new direction for the design team at Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) going away from the iPad style disposable design where really when the battery was out on the iPad, you just pitched it and bought a new one. With these phones they are clearly designing them to be serviced […],” said Wiens.

Wiens showed that by just unscrewing two screws and using a suction tool he could get inside Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iPhone 6 Plus. Most of the inside as he showed was composed of the battery as there was little room required for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s new chip which in itself is a sign how well the company’s products have advanced technologically.

This also brings in the question of product durability. Bloomberg’s Cory Johnson who was also present during the interview asked if it was as easy to put the phone back together as it was to take it apart. He said that from his past experience with older Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s devices, he found out that it was a ‘one way trip’ opening them.

Wiens assured him that this wasn’t the case with the new Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) phone. He also mentioned that the whole bendable chasis issue was overblown and the phone can stand stresses from normal use without bending.
