Richard Dinh, Apple’s senior director of iPhone product design, recently discussed the internal modifications that make repairs easier in the conventional iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus designs with Tim Biggs of The Sydney Morning Herald.

The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus have a removable back glass panel for easier repairs, making them the first models since the iPhone 4S can be opened from both the front and back sides of the device. The change does not apply to the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, which can be opened only from the front.

With the flexibility to access the logic board from either side of the device, Dinh claims that the new structural layout with the aluminum frame in the center “helps to distribute more heat throughout the entire surface more consistently.”

Given the improved repairability, iFixit’s Kyle Wiens claimed last year that the iPhone 14 represented “the most substantial iPhone overhaul” since the iPhone X. He continued that the iPhone has been changed from the inside out to make it easier to fix, adding that the modifications are “such a significant deal that it should have been Apple’s major announcement.”

Additionally, Dinh discussed Apple’s strategy for creating the standard iPhone models, pointing out that the business uses no set formula.

He said it always starts with the client experience, adding that “sometimes we do draw from the Pros because they’re simply great” and “sometimes we go do something different,” even though perhaps our consumers would like to forecast what we’re going to go do next.
