  1. AirPods Proの分解, AirPods Proの分解: 手順 1、 1の画像 1
    • ”Pro”という名称が与えられると、エクストラの機能が沢山付いてきます。

    • アクティブノイズキャンセレーション、外部音取り込みモード

    • アダプティブイコライゼーション用の内向きのマイクロフォン

    • カスタムデザインApple製 H1ワイヤレスチップ、Bluetooth 5対応

    • IPX4等級 耐汗耐水性能

    • 各AirPod Proの重量は、前モデルより33%増えて5.4 gです。AirPodの中では一番重いモデルです。

    • 充電ケースは明らかに大きくなり、45.6 gあります。

    • より頑丈になるのは必ずしも悪いことではありません。例えば、私たちが行った最新のiPhone分解でも、バッテリー駆動時間が増加したことで、デバイスに若干厚みが加わりました。

  2. AirPods Proの分解: 手順 2、 3の画像 1 AirPods Proの分解: 手順 2、 3の画像 2 AirPods Proの分解: 手順 2、 3の画像 3
    • このAirPods Proも、デンタルフロスのようなケースに入っています。開くと小さな可愛いPodsが覗き見しています。

    • ケースを裏返せば、このモデルの設計と製造場所が分かるストーリーと、ペアリングボタンが1つ付いています。

    • 前モデルでは大変な経験をしたので、X線で装備した友達に、内側の様子を事前に見せてもらいました。(Creative Electon提供)

    • ちょっと待ってくださいーこれはプロフェッショナルなデバイスなので、Creative ElectronもプロフェッショナルなX線で撮影してくれました。この360度で観る素晴らしいビデオをお楽しみください!

    • このAirPodsはHalloween用に、こんな仮装をしているようです。

    • ジェットパック

    • 宇宙飛行士の生命維持システム

    • 分解エンジニアを襲う酷い悪夢

    The single magnet in the whole hinge system is a real life saver. No more of those metal shavings being attracted to the Airpods case! A welcome improvement and thanks for the X-Rays!

    • さあ、分解ショーの始まりです!この ”Pro” ラベルは、どんな違いを分解テーブルで見せてくれるのでしょうか?

    • ”プロフェッショナル”なアクティブノイズキャンセリングと快適な装着感を実現する、交換可能なシリコーン製イヤーチップ

    • ”プロフェッショナル”なポーズをした太くて短足なボディと、似たような小さい充電ケース

    • 圧力を均一に保つための、”プロフェッショナル”級のメッシュグリル

    • ”プロフェッショナル”なボイス録音や通話用にエッジのアングルが外側に向き、小さくなった下側マイクロフォン用グリル。

  4. AirPods Proの分解: 手順 5、 3の画像 1 AirPods Proの分解: 手順 5、 3の画像 2 AirPods Proの分解: 手順 5、 3の画像 3
    • 新しいケースのモデルA 2190、そして”Buds”は左右別々にA 2083A 2084と付番されています。

    • ”一般ゴミではありません”のアイコンが表示されています。ということは、(a) この製品は一般ゴミではありません。もしくは(b)この製品は一般ゴミとして破棄できないということです。

    • ヒント:答えは”b”です、そして恐らく"a"も含まれるでしょう。その正誤は、バッテリーが消耗する数年後、バッテリーの交換ができるかどうかによります。

    • ケース内側の底に、コンタクトがあります。これは充電用のバネ接点です。

    • このProモデルのPodsはアマチュア向けの前モデルよりも、修理、リサイクルが簡単にできるのでしょうか?信じてください、私たちは皆さんと一緒で、その答えを見つけることにエキサイトしています。

  5. AirPods Proの分解: 手順 6、 3の画像 1 AirPods Proの分解: 手順 6、 3の画像 2 AirPods Proの分解: 手順 6、 3の画像 3
    • まず最初に、交換可能なコンポーネントを交換してみましょう!シリコーン製のイヤーチップがパチンと外れ、しっかりと押し込めば、また音がして元通りに装着できます。

    • 一般的に、シリコーン製イヤーチップはイヤーバズの外側周辺上にスライドしてカバー装着します。Appleのデザインは幾つかの素晴らしいエンジニアリングを採用していますが、標準的なシリコーン製チップと互換性がありません。

    • ということは、このモデルではあなたのお気に入りのチップを再利用できません。しかし、イヤーチップが裂けたり紛失した時は、Appleの正規交換用イヤーチップを4ドルで購入できます。

    • iFixitではスタンダードなパーツの方を好みますが、このファンシーなイヤーチップは、通常のイヤーバズのデザインに比べてサウンドにより広がりを持たせて聴けるという利点があります。

    • 柔らかいシリコーンを取り出しました。(ヒート)ガンを準備する時間です。あまり先読みしたくないのですが、恐らく内部に入るために必要な作業を知っています…

    • バイスから閉めた圧力でAirPod上部の周辺の開きます。そして私たちのハルベルトスパッジャーでPodを少しずつ開いていきます。

    • この製品ビデオによると、もっと簡単に開くようですが…。

    Apple's design uses some fancy engineering and (surprise!) isn't compatible

    I know this is just Apple’s usual “Make-Em-Pay-The-Apple-Tax!” strategy.. But I wonder if it’s also because someone else managed to patent a “groove around a fabricated cylinder, and mating circular boss around another fabricated component” (along with 6 or so professional-looking “engineering” diagrams)? If Apple used (“stole”) the same “idea”, they could be sued by some patent troll. I’m guessing they would loose - isn’t that basically a mortise/tenon joint, which has been around forever? But - given our (US, but probably other systems as well) broken patent system, it would probably constitute a not-insignificant legal cost for Apple.

    I was messing around with my AirPods Pro and I took the tip off. The small little black clips that are on the black mesh used to hold the tips got pushed in and I’m not able to reattach the tip. Can you guys try and help?

    • 内部で最初に見つけたのは…接着剤です。(驚きよりも、ちょっとがっかりです)

    • 次に我々の目が捉えたのはーあれ、これはもしや?ボタン式バッテリー?これには本当に驚きました

    • さらに驚いたことは、軸部分と耳内側の部分を繋ぐリボンケーブルに少し余裕を持たせており、取り外しできる小さなZIFコネクタが付いています。

    • ZIFコネクタは少量の接着剤でコーティングされていて、安全にケーブルを取り出すには、極めてデリケートな作業をしなければなりません。それでも作業を続行しますか?ーもちろんです。

    • この分解のある時点で、AirPodsが小さな叫び声をあげました。このAirPodsはお化けではありませんが、よく聞けば小さなうめき声をあげます。我々のビデオチームもこの同モデル分解中に、類似経験をしました。ビデオクルーたちは、この叫び声を分解ビデオに収録しています。だから私たちの幻聴ではありません!

    • この解体中に行なっている作業が、瞬間的に何かが作用して、スピーカードライバーにオーバーローディングしているようです。理性的な感覚を抜きにして、このPodsは取り憑かれています。

    • さて、バッテリーに戻りましょう…

    Sam Goldheart - 返信

    Apple stated that the AirPods Pro contained some sort of pressure device that can control the silicone ear tip, this can adjust the ear tip to fit perfectly into your ear. Possibly, this “awooo“ sound is made by releasing this pressure device? Just asking.

    KillerLab 233 - 返信

    This opening process seems similar to the AirPods 2 teardown. I don’t get how this AirPods Pro is rated IPX4, but the AirPods 2 isn’t. Some sort of gluey magic inside?

    • 私たちと(熱に弱い)バッテリーの間を阻むものは、白いゴム状のアルコール耐性をもつ接着剤です。これを取り出す以外、方法はありません。慎重に手で掘り出します。

    • この小さな爆弾周辺を取り除く作業はまさに、EOP(Explosive Ordnance Paleontology: 重量兵器考古学)です。まあ、いいでしょう。化石発掘調査員という呼び名を作るのも私達だけでしょう。

    • バッテリーは半田付けされたケーブルに繋がれています。そしてバッテリーに手は届きますが、この時点で簡単に交換ができません。

    • ちょっと待ってください。これは何処かで見た覚えがあります。これはGalaxy Budsに搭載されていたものと同じバッテリーではないでしょうか?

    • 両方ともドイツ製リチウムイオンのボタンセル電池で、ボルト数は3.7 Vです。しかし、Galaxy Budsの方が若干大きく、製品ラベルはCP1254。一方で、AirPods ProのラベルはCP 1154と表記されています。

    • 物質的にはCP 1154は200mWhのCP1254と比べると容量が14%少ないです。数学の力によると、このバッテリーパックは最大168mWhと算出します。

    • 分解アップデート:このミステリーなボタンセル電池を点検した後、全ての粘着ステッカーを剥がして、小さなWh表示を発見しました。私たちの算出は大きく外れていません。実際のバッテリー容量は0.16 Whです。

    • これは、AirPods 2に搭載されていた93mWhのシリンダー状バッテリーと比べるとかなりの増量です。そしてProの親戚にあたるPowerBeats Proのバッテリー容量と近い値です。

    • バッテリーを片側にぶら下げたまま、続けて中身を掘り起こします。この透明でプラスチック製の補強材がドライバーを固定しています。しかし私たちが力一杯引っ張ると、画像のように抜け出ました。

    • 次にこのPodの主役とも言える、(比較的)大きいドライバーです。このドライバーが持ち上がれば、耳の内側の音を聴きとるためのマイクロフォンが確認できます。

    • Appleはこのマイクロフォンを使って、その時に聴いているどんなサウンドのレベルをアクティブに調整しています。(HomePodのように)そして、イヤーチップがきちんと装着されているかどうかも判断します。

    • このドライバーはドライバーと呼ばれていますが、実際にこれを動かしているのはボイスコイルです。

    • 原則的には、これらの機能は他のスピーカーと大して変わりません。電流が電磁界をコイル中に発生させることで、スピーカーコーンが上下に動き、素晴らしいサウンドを耳の内側に送り込みます。また”アンチノイズ”機能を使って、外部の雑音を遮断します。

    Which part exactly is the microphone? The square thingy on the mesh mask?

    fireattack - 返信

    Yes. It's a similar part to the ones you find in their Phones, Pads and even in the Watches.

    Dominic Bieri -

    Did you measure the size of the driver or voice coil? Is it 11mm?

    leaf428 - 返信

    Turns out that inward facing mic is to counter body noise - see apple’s website where they say “An inward-facing microphone listens inside your ear for unwanted internal sounds, which your AirPods Pro also counter with anti-noise.”

    I was having an issue where I could hear loud thumping with every step as I walked, as many people have described on forums like macrumors. When I saw that apple article, and then the placement of the inward facing mic on iFixIt, I realized that a small amount of ear wax had made it on to the grill in front of the mic. Wiping it off with a damp cloth made the thumping go away completely.

    What that means is that apple never fixed the issue of thumping/etc caused by the AirPods making a vacuum in your ear with vents. Instead they accepted that it was inevitable, and countered the thumping with anti-sound. Which means that an AirPod with a dead battery would thump when you walk.

    • AirPodの尻尾の付け根に戻ります。この可愛い小さな同軸コネクタと、解いたAppleのカスタム製SiP、そこにH1とその他のチップが搭載されています。

    • この小さなボードは、前モデルで見たものよりもさらに小さくなりました。そしてAppleは、スタンダードなAirPodsに比べてAirPods Proの内側に、沢山のスペースを作り出せたようです。

    • 試してみましたが、このパッケージを分離することはできませんでした。私たちはAppleの言葉から、ここには不思議な魔法ではなく、ただシリコンだけが搭載されていると信じるしかありません。

    • アップデート情報: 素晴らしいiFixitコミュニティのおかげで、幾つかのチップ情報の良い推測ができました。

    • Bosch IMU (慣性計測ユニット)が搭載されている可能性が高く、AppleのSpatial Audio機能を稼働させています。

    • STMicroelectronics の加速度計の可能性が高く、音声検出とノイズキャンセルに対応します。

    Package on the left with the package marking that starts “YY” is a 6-axis IMU from Bosch. Package on the right with the “T” marking is a 3-axis accelerometer from STMicro. According to the tech specs the earbuds have “motion-detecting accelerometer” and “speech-detecting accelerometer.” The 6-axis chip would be used for motion so the 3-axis chip must be for speech detection.

    Trevor Yancey - 返信

    If I understand, this means no compass?

    Gavan Wilhite -

    Most likely no compass. An accelerometer suits their needs better for what would it help the Pods to know they face true north? Would be interesting to know whether they relied on ARM architecture (SW based) or whether what we're seeing here is a truly unique/customized low power chip (HW based). Especially in terms of adding and maintaining functionality.

    Dominic Bieri -

    Thanks Trevor.

    But why have they decided to adopt a 6x IMU instead of a “simple” low power accelerometer? And they have removed the tap/double tap function too… Or the gyro is there for some future firmware upgrade? ;)

    manuel.tagliavini -

    We now know 6 axis IMU is for the “spatial audio” which allows for “dynamic head tracking”, where the audio won’t move with your head! It’s a pity that you can only apply the firmware update with an Apple Device. If you don’t, you’ll need to go to an Apple Store to apply it

    Jomel -

    did you just know that off the top of your head? that's super impressive

    Suchir Kavi - 返信

    No, it’s part of my job to understand what these packages are. I did some quick research.

    Trevor Yancey -

    thanks Trevor, very usefull

    Omegauno1 - 返信

    Now I’m pretty sure the shiny apple logo “part” there is really just a shield. Below you should find more components. Looking at the filtered X-Rays (and overlapping them) I would expect to find more&larger caps, a 12-pin, and a 25-pin package at least.

    See the processed images.

    Dominic Bieri - 返信

    Dominic, you’re right! It’s a shield of some kind. We spent a lot of time trying to get it off with our hot-air rework station, but were ultimately unsuccessful. It’s constructed more like the lid of a package than a normal shield that we usually find on a circuit board. We’re going to keep trying though—we’ll update the teardown if we’re ever successful!

    Taylor Dixon -

    G-sensor is at least being used for in-ear detection. The bud turns on noise cancellation if both IR proximity sensors are triggered, and the stem is facing roughly downward. Once it’s turned on, the g-sensor is not being used for the purpose, so as to not make the buds turn off when you’re hanging upside down.

    • 最後に、この軸内部を下側のキャップから外して分解を始めることにします。

    • キャップの継ぎ目部分をこじ開けると、比較的簡単にキャップが外れます。しかし、この内側に詰まっているものは、開いた出口からどうしても取り出せません。

    • 細かい解体作業を繰り返しましたが、この方法では絶対に先に進めません。そこで超音波カッターに手を伸ばします。

    • ラッキーなことに、Podのアンチノイズ防衛機能は、私たちの超音波攻撃を検知せず、全く攻撃してきません!

    • Podが解体できたので、バイスを取り出して、この硬い殻を割ります。

    • AirPods Proの充電ケースをバイスの両側から大きく変形させて、生じたドアの隙間に足先をスパッジャーを差し込みました。それでも致命的なダメージには繋がらなかったようです。

    • 適度なテコの作用と、丁度良い力の入れ具合によって、隠れた接着剤が乖離して、内部パーツが現れます。

    • …そしてこの中にバッテリーも含まれています。前モデルを取り出した時の方が、作業は難航しました。

    • 全てのパーツは繋がっていて、今のところ、この分解作業は上手くいっています。ただし裏技を知っていればの話です。

    • 上部付近、Pods用充電ポケットのちょうど真ん中にこの小さなシルバーの何かが付いています。これは何のためでしょうか?マイクロフォンのように見えます。

    • "battery"と言いましたか?正しくは、複数形でbatteriesと表記しましょうーバッテリーは2つあります!もしくは2つのセルです。

    • 容量が1.98 WhのProのバッテリーは、アマチュアAirPods2のシングルセル1.52 Whをかなり上回っています。1.03 WhのGalaxy Budケースも同様です。

    • ところでLightningポートは、この新モデルでも変わらずモジュールです。ケースが壊れたら、理論的には交換が可能です。交換用パーツが手に入ればですが。

    The “silver guy” might be a Hall effect sensor or reed switch to detect when the case lid is closed.

    Agree with Jon.

    Also, the x ray showed something in the top lid. Any ideas?

    Ty Booyzen - 返信

    This could be the accelerometer that detects when you double tap the case while wireless charging. If you double tap while charging it will show battery status, even without the pods in.

    Zain Ahmed - 返信

    I’m guessing the “silver guy”is a cage shield covering some devices. Pull it off and see what’s underneath.

    Trevor Yancey - 返信

    Might be a barometer or humidity sensor, for who knows why reason.

    Hi-Hi Bla-Bla - 返信

    Looks like one to me. I’ve been playing around with enough IoT development kits recently to recognize a little metal box with a hole in the lid as some kind of environmental sensor. Why it would be needed in a glorified battery charger is a more interesting question.

    shamino -

    Maybe it stops charging if humidity is detected, similar to the “moisture in charging port” warning that can appear on the phones.

    Dillan -

    It could be a pressure sensor: if the housing is properly sealed (and it looks like that), it could detect any abnormal battery leakage resulting in a change of pressure.

    manuel.tagliavini -

    Does it has same coil(for wireless charging) as airpods 2?

    Cho - 返信

    Apple supposedly said that the AirPods Pro features a function which allows the user to tap the case to light the indicator to see the battery level (either fully charged or charging) (this function is only active when the case is charging wirelessly), this may be the module which enables that function. Probably some sort of pressure sensor to sense the tap

    • 驚くほど率直とも言えるAppleの説明の中に、ProのPodsは修理できないデザインで、製品そのものを交換することしかできないと公認しました。そしてこの点では、前モデルと比べて改善されていません。

    • 私たちがこう言及するなんて信じられませんが、上記の2番目の部分については反対の意見です。このモデルは、修理できる可能性が僅かにしろ見い出せます。

    • もしAppleの説明がなかったら、恐らく私たちは、Podsの耳内部に入れるパーツ(バッテリー+ドライバー)とオリジナルの軸部分(SiP、アンテナ、マイクロフォンと感圧センサー)を交換できるようにAppleは計画していたのであろうとと想定した事でしょう。交換できるパーツは僅かでも、これは意味のあることです!

    • しかしながら、AirPodの組み立て工場ラインに居なければ、現在のところ、分解されたPodを完全に組み立てることはできないでしょう。

Nice teardown!

Is there any way to know the wattage of the airpod pro batteries? It looks bigger than the one on the original airpods, but curiously, they’re rated for the same runtime (5 hours with noise cancellation off).

The driver is bigger, but the sillicone tip would provide a tighter seal so you wouldn’t need to pump up the volume that much. I was hoping for the battery life without noise cancelling to be better than 5 hours.

daniel.rey.lopez - 返信

We estimate it to have ~168 mWh. This is much more than the original AirPods (92 mWh), but closer in line with the other wireless earbuds—The PowerBeats Pro, Galaxy Buds, and Sony WF-1000XM3 all use 200 mWh CP1254 batteries.

Arthur Shi -

Thanks for the reply Arthur! That’s a big battery. I’ll wait for real-life battery tests, Apple may be under-reporting the expected battery life. I’m personally undecided about getting these or the Powerbeats Pro… I wish I didn’t have to compromise either in battery life or in noise cancellation :)

daniel.rey.lopez -

We found the marked rating! The battery is rated at 160 mWh. So, we were slightly off :)

Arthur Shi -

Can we get the size of the drivers please?

Bob - 返信

The drivers measure approximately 11 mm in diameter.

Arthur Shi -

Roughly 11mm, which puts it in line with the Galaxy Buds Pro and other in-ear TWS 'buds.

Kaleb White -

Anything in there making the AirPods Pro locatable using the iPhone 11’s U1 ultra wide band chip?

seidtgeist - 返信

Great question!

Chris -

That’s what I was hoping would be announced, but they haven’t officially announced an improved Find My capability for the new iPhones we know have the U1. I think the chip is supposedly cheap enough to include, but whether it fits in such a small package I don’t know. It’s hard to see from the iPhone 11 breakdown how big the U1 chip is, and whether that could fit into the AirPods, or the Watch for that matter.

Sconnie Fella -

I think an ultra wide band chip would need too much energy and would be too expensive.

A more reasonable choice in my mind would be to use the BLE 5.1 angle of arrival feature to find the direction of the head phones, as a ble module is already on board.

But therefore an antenna array would be necessary in the phone which I don’t think is the case, and I am not sure if manufacturers will do in the future.

strat -

Think you guys may have missed something. Check your x-ray video - is there not something with a sideways “H” shape built into the lid? You didn’t look because there’s no wiring to it - so completely passive?

Frank O -

I take that back. Seems to be a spring loaded mechanism for opening the lid. But that then begs the question - Why doesn’t the “aluminum” hinge itself show in the x-ray?

Frank O -

Where’s the new custom high dynamic range amplifier

marty - 返信

Why does’t the “Pro” AirPods case have a matching stainless steel hinge versus the decidedly less pro aluminum?

Chris - 返信

The ghost sound was likely the gasket that helps equalize pressure, methinks? Reviews said you can hear them blocking your hearing like normal IEMs for a second, and then they “release”, and then you feel unblocked.

We are pretty certain that the driver produced the shrieking sound—the sound was not the result of a mechanical phenomenon. If I were to guess, it might be from feedback by the noise cancellation mics in close proximity to the driver, especially as we were taking the casing apart.

Arthur Shi -

I think they are made to be easier to recycle, but not repair.

David K. - 返信

On Apple’s webpage where the inter mic is explained, it appears that the speaker grills are detachable (and thus washable separately). Can you please confirm?

Jeffrey - 返信

Unfortunately, none of the speaker grilles are detachable/removable. They are glued from within the case.

Arthur Shi -

Can you share any details on the battery? Assuming it is Varta… but what capacity do you find the 1154 to coming in at?

Brian Spatocco - 返信

There are no markings that could allude to what the capacity is, other than a data matrix that’s really hard to read.

I measured the batteries, and compared to the Galaxy Buds’ CP1254 batteries, these CP1154s are 1 mm smaller in diameter (12 mm vs. 11 mm). They have the same thickness—5.4 mm.

If you calculate the volume, the CP1154 has 16% less volume than the CP1254. Considering that these are the same battery chemistries and forms, I’m estimating that they have similar energy densities, and thus would scale with volume.

From those measurements, I would estimate that the CP1154 would have ~168mWh (compared to the Galaxy Buds’ CP1254 having 200mWh).

This is much bigger than the AirPods 2, which has 93mWh.

Arthur Shi -

Thanks Arthur! That number makes a lot of sense to me, too.

It’s curious that they didn’t include any capacity/energy markings on the device considering the fact that other Varta SKUs do tend to have this. For example, CP1254 Varta cell in the WF-1000XM3 (https://hifigo.com/blogs/tws/deep-dive-t...) provides the nominal at .2 Wh (as you noted).

Makes me wonder if this was a unique production run just for Apple.

Brian Spatocco -

Did you find an IMU in the earbuds?

Gavan Wilhite - 返信

A comment in Step 10 seems to point them as Bosch and STMicro IMUs.

Arthur Shi -

Can’t help you on the chips, but the microphones are from Goertek, as they have the “GW” marking.

See page 6 of this confidential datasheet for another mic in the same range. If you can get a high enough picture of the datamatrix code on the microphone, it should contain the part number, but the photos are too low resolution for me to read it myself.

chris - 返信

Thanks for the tip!

Arthur Shi -

Found out that this tool does it with the available resolution:

https://demo.dynamsoft.com/dbr/barcodere...

DATAMATRIX DTV93715PEKL8141N+DC

Unfortunately it doesn’t align with any of their known part numbers.

chris -

For what it’s worth, the battery probably adheres to the following logic in it’s nomenclature:

xxyy, where xx is the diameter in mm, and yy is the height in 1/10th mm (which ist why the 1154 is slightly smaller than the 1254).

Michael - 返信

You are correct! The 1154 has an 11 mm diamter, while the 1254 has a 12mm. They both have 5.4mm thickness, as you predicted.

Arthur Shi -

I am just gonna add this comment real quick cause I got redirected her from a local newspaper. Repairing the air pods, regardless of model, will be far more affordable and practical depending on where you live. In Norway for instance, we have a legally required “warranty” which lasts for five years. The batteries are covered for two years. That means that if the pods fail at any point during those five years, and Apple cannot prove the user is to blame for the fault, they have to either repair it, refund the purchase, or provide a new pair, free of charge. The battery is covered for two years, beyond which point Apple must provide repairs for an affordable price.

In case anyone is wondering, this issue has repeatedly gone through the Norwegian court systems. Apple has lost every single time.

Why would Apple use a cell battery here?

nickkiran - 返信

Perhaps they went with a larger battery so they can limit it to 70-80 percent charging cycles in order to increase lifespan before it croaks, say discharge to 10 or 20 percent, charge to 90 percent so it doesn’t kill the battery as quickly? You’d have to tear one apart at full charge and at empty to measure the voltage to get an idea but its a thought. Since the battery is almost double the capacity, sacrificing 20-30% of that capacity for increased cycles still gives you a larger battery capacity than before. I’d think it would be foolish not to do this, but who knows if they thought that.

The video of X-ray is soooo cool

it helps a lot in understanding the 3D structure

that feels amazing! it really give a sense of “so it’s constructed in this way…”

please do it with iPhones and other stuff next time!!

By the way, if that’s a pressure sensor not a real physical button that mean Apple has created a virtual feeling of clicking of the button :0 I thought it was a button, the click feeling of the antenna feels so real..

Japan Three - 返信

Could…we give future devices like this negative repairability scores? Because trying to repair things like this will take away your time AND break the device.

Ethan Zuo - 返信

Great teardown! Do you have the batteries weight by any chance?

Luis Vollbracht - 返信

Hey Luis, thank you! The battery weighs 1.2 grams.

Taylor Dixon -

Is it still Knowles making the microphones? And there are 3 each?

Nice teardown!

Is it in anyway possible to change the shape of the indent in the case holder to fit a right airpod in the left hole? I ask because I am deaf on one ear and will team up with a friend who is deaf on the left, swap one airpod to get a set of two (right/left - you get the idea). But will it be impossible, possible with, say a bit of drilling/scraping/… or easy to fit two right airpods in one case?

Hans Jensen - 返信

Why don’t your teardown other earbuds ? I guess you just wanna some easy pesos with Apple bashing . Like you guys often seems to do…

will - 返信

We did link to our Galaxy Buds teardown, twice!

Sam Goldheart -

I’ve never heard of anyone having a pair of ear buds repaired.

Being cordless, and because Apple will sell each of the 3 replaceable components separately, repair couldn’t be easier.

I think you guys have completely lost the plot.

Alex Bowden - 返信

A single Pod will cost about 90 USD to replace with Apple. So yes, repair couldn't be easier if you just go and buy a new Pod at the Genius Bar. But it's going to be pricy.

Dominic Bieri - 返信

To be honest the case deserve a score more than 0. The case along should get a score like 4.

The two pods, well … those get scores of 0.

This battery is a German-made VARTA Valta CP1254 high capacity A3 60mah3.7v lithium battery

Deng lei - 返信

They are probably made by VARTA as you guessed. However, they are CP1154, rated for 160 mWh, so ~43 mAh @3.7v.

Arthur Shi -

As per your experience, can we disassemble them safely and fix it into another body (planning to make a Gold Airpod Pro). I can make the Gold body and close it also. But, should be able to dissemble it safely and put things back. You think its possible ?

Yusuf Motiwala - 返信

Does anyone know what sort of flash memory is being used in the Airpods Pro? I know the AirPods 2 had the following memory chip serial number in it 25SL 128A 1820.

Does anyone know the maker or serial number for the flash memory being used in the Airpods Pro?

Do the AirPods Pro or the case itself house liquid contact indicators?

I have been thinking about switching to Android for a while. Get a half decent phone from OnePlus for half the price. I ended up getting the iPhone X 2 years ago because I had the Airpods for 6 months by then and absolutely loved them. With my batteries so crappy on the Airpods, I don’t think I will get a new set, specially considering their latest creation is no better for fixability. I just retired and can’t afford the extra premium for Apple products anymore. Apple is really losing its shine.

Is there any information on the sensor that detects that the user has placed the AirPod in their ear? Is that the silver thing on the left side of the picture for Step 9?

I’ve seen comments that it is an IR-type proximity sensor. Is that true and is there any part number or vendor information on it?

Eric Abbott - 返信

In most of the teardowns I have seen, an estimated cost of components is presented. I may have missed it but I don’t see that here. Anybody seen cost estimate for this product that will provide a glimpse into Apple’s mark up?

The little speaker grille underneath the silicon tip has come loose on my left pod. It seems like the glue that kept it on is not strong enough. Any thoughts on what type of glue to use to get it to stay? Right now the silicon tip and grille stay in my ear when I remove the pod :(

Raffi Vega - 返信

I accidently tore apart my airpod while trying to take off the tip. It now resembles the airpod shown at step 7. Do you have any tips on how to put it back together? When I try to ‘click’ it back in place it won’t align, one or the other side is staying a bit opened. Help!

Apple announced a service program indicating that AirPods Pro manufactured before October 2020 might suffer from ANC issues. People that went through the replacement program say that the mesh on them are now a little more recessed but the ANC is also less efficient. It would be interesting to see a side-by-side comparison between AirPods Pro manufactured prior to October 2020 and a pair manufactured after Nov 2020 to see if there are indeed hardware changes?

What is the little black liner on the inside ( front facing ) part of the case ? …. my dog chewed up the case and it does not charge anymore . i took the case apart but everything looks like it’s still intact with the exception of my dogs tooth piercing the front face of the case and slightly tearing that liner . Can can one give me any suggestions ?

john h - 返信

Just to add, in step 10, the chip on the right with a data matrix on it is a speech recognition sensor from STMicroelectronics that works with the microphones for noise-reduction during calling, while the chip on the left marked MHEK NYH7 is an accelerometer from Bosch that works with the IR sensors for wear detection and also probably used in spatial audio function.

Meng Ziyue - 返信

Thanks for chipping in! I’ve updated the ID step to include your contribution.

Arthur Shi -

Let’s say, theoretically, that my AirPods Pro case’s battery died. Let’s also theorize that an official Apple repair lab examined the case, and returned it with this exact reasoning, mentioning that it cannot be repaired and a new case can be bought (as it is a 15 months old case, it is no longer under the warranty).

How would one get a new pair of battery cells to replace them? Would love to have this as a personal project.

How does the case determine that it is open (thereby enabling bluetooth connectivity)? Is it in the rear hinge? Or is there perhaps a magnet in the front that detects when the lid is closed?
