While ripping apart your new $999 phone may seem a stupid idea, the first teardowns of the iPhone X have revealed its internals were as radically redesigned as its exterior.

These incredible images from iFixit reveal several surprises inside the handset.

Apple managed to cram in two batteries for instance, allowing them to arrange them in an L shape to optimise space.

iFixit said the new design was actually more similar to the original iPhone than they expected.

‘The iPhone has come a long way in ten years—so long, in fact, that the design has cycled back a bit, and this iPhone looks more like the original than we’ve seen in a long time.’

The most immediately noticeable difference is with the batteries – there are now two.

They are arranged in an L shape with components fitted around them.

In general, it gives the iPhone X a ‘repairability score’ of six out of 10, praising the relative ease with which someone can replace the device’s display and battery but lamenting how the glue-heavy, all-glass back would force a user to remove additional components like the rear camera if it ever broke and needed a replacement.
