iPhone 7 Plus teardown reveals bigger Taptic Engine
Apple really didn't leave room for the headphone jack. iFixit has given Apple's latest plus-sized flagship phone the same treatment it gave its older siblings. It's currently in the midst of tearing down an iPhone 7 Plus, taking it apart piece by piece to give us a more complete picture of what's going on inside that rose gold facade. The team already tore down the part where the headphone jack used to be, and it looks like Apple really didn't make room for the 3.5mm port. That corner of the phone also contains the Taptic Engine, which looks much, much bigger than the one inside the 6s Plus. Makes sense, since the Home button now makes the phone vibrate when you push it.
