iFixit’s iPhone 6s Teardown Has Begun Down in Australia [u]

The iFixit team again made their way to Australia to wait in line for Apple’s new iPhone 6s—to tear apart. They have just now teased on Twitter they have started their teardown, so stay tuned as we discover what’s inside Apple’s latest iPhone.

The teaser image below shows the smartphone’s display detached, revealing the internals of the iPhone 6s in Rose Gold. The teardown experts have both models on hand, and will be starting with the iPhone 6s first, followed immediately by the iPhone 6s Plus.
