Like each design considering that the iPhone 7 Plus, the iPhone X is a sideways-opening tool. A single brace covers every logic board port.


iFixit claimed the miniaturized logic board style is extremely space reliable, with an unprecedented density of adapters as well as components. It noted the iPhone X logic board is about 70 percent of the dimension of the iPhone 8 Plus reasoning board.

The additional area permits a brand-new L-shaped two-cell battery pack ranked for 2,716 mAh, which is a little larger than the iPhone 8 Plus battery.
