Twitter user Sonny Dickson has taken apart what appears to be an iPhone 13 to reveal its newly redesigned interior, with the battery and Taptic Engine changes being the most notable changes.

As shipping notifications for the iPhone 13 range are starting to arrive, a prolific leaker has already received and partially disassembled a device. Sonny Dickson, on Twitter, does not say which model it is, but based on other tweeted images of packaging, it is most likely to be an iPhone 13.



The greater portion of the phone's interior is taken up by the new, larger, battery, which is chiefly responsible for the iPhone 13 range's increased battery life. The clearest sign of how Apple has accommodated this increased battery volume, is in how the Taptic Engine is visibly reduced and can be seen in the bottom left of the iPhone.

Sonny Dickson has previously shown what were claimed to be dummy models of each of the iPhone 13 range.

    The blue shade is also a good indicator that it's not a Pro.

    It's interesting how Apple labels the A15 and Taptic engine so proudly when most people will never have a look inside.

    Look how small that logic board is. Apple could make an $800 laptop with an A15, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB storage, 13" display, fanless, and 20 hr runtime. With education and bulk deals, they could sell like 20m units per year. It would cannibalize the more expensive laptops, but adding to the userbase could be an overall net win. Sell like 30m to 40m Mac units total per year.

    They totally could, and it would still be better than half the laptops on the market.

    Probably better than 80%?

    The p-cores in the A15 have single core performance that are as fast as the fastest computers, including desktops, on the market, and there are two of them, and GPU performance comparable to 96 core Intel Xe GPUs. It would serve 80% of laptop buyers pretty well. It would be a killer product at $800, especially since they can include larger batteries than competitors as the logic boards will be so small, and real 20 hr runtimes are achievable.

    And boy do I have thoughts on what they can do with the laptop design.
