iFixit Tears Down Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2
iFixit has published detailed teardowns of the new Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2, providing a closer look at the internal design and several matching components inside the trio of accessories.
The teardown experts first pried through the Magic Keyboard's adhesive to uncover its logic board, rechargeable 793 mAh lithium-ion battery, Lightning connector cable and honeycomb-shaped spacer layer. iFixit also removed the keycaps to reveal Apple's new scissor mechanism.
The Magic Keyboard logic board contains a Broadcom Bluetooth transceiver, ST Microelectronics microcontroller, NXP charging IC and Texas Instruments battery charger:
The new Magic Keyboard earned a low repairability score of 3 out of 10, with ten being the easiest to repair, due to the excessive use of strong adhesive and difficulty of opening the keyboard without damaging internal components.
