The iFixit team recently opened Apple iPhone 12 Mini and here is what we have learned. First, the iPhone 12 Mini is powered by a smaller 8.57 Wh battery, which according to iFixit is larger than the iPhone SE 2020s, which had 6.96 Wh. It’s important to note that the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro have a 10.78 Wh battery. The mini camera has the same ƒ / 1.6 and ƒ / 2.4 wide angle cameras that you will find in a regular iPhone 12.
The mini variant consists of the same components as the iPhone 12, but everything is miniaturized. Includes Taptic Engine, speakers and MagSafe ring.
In addition, it has two display cables instead of three and also has increased grid asymmetry. “A smaller phone seems to need a little more space for this antenna range,” says iFixit. The upper sensor assembly, which includes the speaker, Face ID, and ambient light sensor, has also been redesigned to fit a slightly smaller body.
In terms of repairability, the iPhone 12 Mini scored 6 out of 10 points, as did the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro. On the positive side, most major components are sufficiently modular to be accessed / exchanged independently. In a negative sense, the glass covering the rear case is fragile and impractical to replace.
Apple iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 come in black, blue, red, gray and white.
