Today, ifixit, a well-known foreign disassembly station, disassembled the recently released Apple watch series 6.Although the appearance of the new series 6 is very similar to that of the 5th generation, disassembly has proved that it has made many internal adjustments and modifications, such as the addition of a blood oxygen sensor and a little larger battery.The new Apple Watch opens the interior like a iPhone through the left hatch screen.

Since the force touch pressure sensitive screen has been removed, there is no corresponding gasket component, which makes it easier to install and install the new Apple watch. Ifixit also found less cabling, simpler design and easier maintenance.

In the 44mm version of the apple watch series 6, a 1.17wh battery is used, a slight increase of 3.5% over the previous generation. The capacity of 40mm battery is 1.024wh, which is 8.5% higher than the previous generation.
There is a larger taptic engine vibration module in Apple watch series 6. The framework has been slightly modified and a narrower edge connection has been adopted. This adjustment, coupled with the cancellation of force touch, also explains why watches are thinner this year (10.4mm vs. 10.74mm last year).

In general, ifixit is more effective than ifixitAppleThe ability to fit new sensors, larger batteries and larger taptic engines into thinner enclosures was impressive
"They just keep polishing the product to make it look better and better. They hardly tell you that there is more inside. All the attention is focused on the health function."

The 2020 model year's new Apple watch series 6 finally got a 6-point repairable score of 10, which is not low. This is mainly due to the easier screen and battery replacement, but it is still important to note the special three-point screw and the relatively fragile flat cable directly installed on the S6 package chip.
