This brand new iPhone Xs Max, is ready to be torn down and opened up. Lets review it together from the inside. Apple has always tried to keep people out of their iPhones, but that has never stopped us before. Its time to see how repairable this new iPhone Xs Max is. What parts can be replaced, and what components of the iPhone Xs should be avoided? In this iPhone Xs teardown video I show how I remove the screen, the battery, the charging port, as well as the Sandwiched motherboard. We get to find out if Apple has included any thermal cooling inside of the phone for their processor.

    I have a XS and phone was recently dropped less than 2 feet high. No cracks on the phone. Now the screen becomes unresponsive at times. Will a screen replacement cure the issue? Could it be something else?

    I love how Apple most likely has a team of 100 engineers that work on making it the most expensive, hard to fix, droppable piece of trash on earth and Jerry just fucking annihilates every waking moment of their careers in a 10 minute RU-clip video.

    Hi Jerry just came across your well produced video. You ask the question of is there thermal cooling? You missed that stainless steel piece. This piece used to be a solid stainless. Since the X this piece has been replaced by a copper center, three layer bonded alloy. Similar to the US quarter which has been like this since the 70s. Yes the thick copper center layer works and was first used in a Fujitsu smart phone almost ten years ago. So there you go there is an intentional thermal cooling design in the X and the phone can be made as thin as possible, not like some other cooling methods that has to be rigged in.

    I like how he talks about Apple not catching up with the water resistance of Samsung well it’s been two years now and we’re still waiting for Samsung to catch up with face ID I’ll take Face ID over letting my phone dip in the water over a meter for four hours or whatever it is
