There are some additional intrigues this time around, as some insist that Apple is trying to activate the two-sided Galaxy S10 charging on its latest phones just to disable the feature at the end of the process. Apple has unambiguously told us that this is not true, but iFixit is peering anyway.
After opening the device, they discovered a new battery connector that did not duplicate the features of the "main" charging cable seen in previous phones. The phone still worked without a second cable included and could be charged via Lightning but not wirelessly. This may be an unrelated revision of the iPhone 11's boot settings, or it may be something more – we don't know for sure yet.
Thread is still in the process and as usual iFixit is also keeping track of how easy it will be for a self-repairing thinker to do it. Keep an eye out for more photos and final results.
