A few days ago, Apple added (to everyone’s surprise) a product to its online catalog that sounded like an admission of weakness. As a reminder, this is a shell capable of recharging an iPhone 6 or 6S (read: Smart Battery Case: an iPhone 6 & 6S battery shell by Apple).
Like he usually does, iFixit did not wait long before dismantling the accessory sold all the same 119 euros on the Apple Store online. Positive point, the protective shell is equipped with a battery with a capacity of 1877 mAh, which is therefore more powerful than that present in the iPhone 6S (1715 mAh)!
Regarding the actual disassembly, iFixit noted the presence of non-proprietary screws (Torx T3 type). These make repair more accessible, but are covered with a very resistant microfiber lining. Despite this, the company specializing in dismantling of all kinds gives the Smart Battery Case a repairability rating of 2 out of 10.
