After tearing apart the iPhone 8, the iFixit team has published their iPhone 8 Plus teardown. The company flew to Australia to be one of the first to tear apart Apple’s latest iPhones.

Like the iPhone 8, the iPhone 8 Plus has four battery tabs to pull out instead of two compared to last year. The larger iPhone 8 Plus has a battery that is 3.82 V, a 2691 mAh cell with 10.28 Wh of power, a smaller battery compared to its predecessor, which had a 3.82 V battery with 2900 mAh capacity, coming in at 11.1 Wh. To compare the iPhone 8 Plus battery to the Galaxy Note 8, the latter has a larger 3300 mAh battery.

iFixit couldn’t remove the back glass with heat, so it had to break the panel on purpose, which they note “don’t drop this phone. Removing a broken panel is much more difficult than getting it out in one piece.”

The iPhone 8 Plus garnered a “Repairability Score” of 6 out of 10 (10 being the easiest to repair), dropping one point compared to last year’s iPhone 7 Plus, which was torn apart in Tokyo, Japan.
