Are you the type who loves to see bowels? I mean the internal components of products, of course (what else?). Whenever new hardware appears either from Apple or on, the iFixit It is your responsibility to disassemble it, part by part, to show us how each little piece is arranged in the apparatus.
Most product users can even care about this kind of process, but those who like to analyze the internal components of gadgets You really find everything amazing. And it was thinking about this second group of people that Bloomberg and iFixit have teamed up to provide a few minutes of pure technological pleasure, starring all iPhones released today.
We follow the disassemblies of the iPhones year after year, but maybe because we got used to it, we didn't realize what were the biggest changes in the device. However, perhaps putting them side by side, since the first model, we can see what has changed or not in these ten years.
First of all, on the original iPhone, you can see a very large lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 1,400mAh. At the time, Apple claimed it was enough to last up to 8 hours of talk time, 6 hours of web browsing, 7 hours of video playback, or 24 hours of audio playback, but as we know, in practice the time varied by a bit. little.
In the upper left corner we see a simple 2 megapixel rear camera, still without the company of the LED flash, with which those great photos were taken for a cell phone of the time, of course.
The rest of the components on the first iPhone are protected, but we know that it came equipped with 4GB, 8GB or 16GB of storage, a 412MHz ARM11 processor, just 128MB of RAM and a PowerVR MBX Lite graphics processor.
Regarding connectivity, the small one has Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11b / g chips and something that certainly no one is missing EDGE cellular network (the famous 2G).
Your big The screen was 3.5 inches with a resolution of 320 × 480 pixels and below it we had the first still mechanical start button. The iPhone was powered by the spacious 30-pin connector, as well as the 3.5mm headphone jack.
When placed side by side with the iPhone 8, we noticed the changes: Ma's newest handset now has a slim 1.812mAh battery and a rear-facing camera that has undergone little change (here comes the sarcasm) of 12 megapixels. Its storage has also greatly improved and can now reach up to 256GB.
2GB RAM and a six-core A11 Bionic chip deliver impressive results, and in connectivity, the device has Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11a / c and Advanced LTE. Continuing with the change that occurred in 2012, it feeds on the Lightning connector, has capacitive start button and, as we know, does not have the exclusive output for headphones.
As noted above, the organization of the 3G and 3GS iPhones is quite different from what we see today. The arrangement of the components as we see it today began only on the iPhone 4.
Even if you have been with us throughout this saga over the years, it is well worth visiting this page, which shows not only the bowels as some extra information, including each other's release date, prices and more, there you are. will regret it.
