Fun post from iFixit. Now if only I could find where I put these…
We’re here today to conduct some X-ray surveillance and take a quick peek inside the AirPods Max. This partial, early teardown aims to answer our most burning question: will these pricey cans be serviceable to any degree, or another e-waste disaster, like the rest of the AirPods family?
But! Coming soon: A full-fledged iFixit AirPods Max teardown, where we’ll strip these beasts down to their bits—from the Digital Crown to that unfortunate Lightning port. Keep checking back for updates in the days to come.
While you wait, you can study up on our previous AirPods teardowns, and check out our YouTube channel, our Instagram, and our Twitter. To be the first to know about our latest gadget investigations, subscribe to our newsletter.
