One other part that is greater within the Sequence 6 is the Taptic Engine. This time round, it is also made out of 100 p.c recycled uncommon earth metals and tungsten. In late 2019, Apple mentioned it might begin manufacturing the iPhone’s Taptic Engine from recycled elements. One yr later, it is doing the identical with the Apple Watch.
The teardown additionally highlights the elimination of Power Contact. We knew the characteristic was on its means out when Apple launched the watchOS 7 beta in June, however iFixit’s teardown confirms the part that enabled the gesture is not current within the Apple Watch Sequence 6. From a repairability standpoint, iFixit notes the elimination of Power Contact makes issues simpler.
“We’re joyful to see a fragile, damage-prone half retired, however unhappy to see the ultimate nail within the coffin for Apple’s nifty pressure-sensitive show expertise,” the corporate mentioned. “We’re torn, however we’ll name this a win.”
The top results of all these tweaks is that the Sequence 6 is barely thinner than the Sequence 5. It measures in at 10.4mm thick in comparison with the Sequence 5’s 10.74mm. As for that blood oxygen sensor Apple talked a lot about, iFixit wasn’t really capable of take it aside. “Fused show on high, fused sensor array on the underside. We’re not gonna discover something however damaged items if we bust this aside.”
