Introducción

Hace dos semanas, derribamos la nueva MacBook Pro de 13 "básico para descubrir que era más delgada, más liviana, más rápida y (cara triste) menos reparable que la mayoría de las demás computadoras portátiles de nivel profesional. Hoy, damos la vuelta a nuestras herramientas con su compañero de lanzamiento equipado con Touch Bar. ¿ Nos sorprenderá esta nueva máquina con algunas características amigables para la actualización? ¿O será tan desechable como la caja en la que viene? Solo hay una manera de averiguarlo: ¡es tiempo de desmontaje!

Síguenos en Facebook, Instagram, o Twitter para mantenerse en contacto con los últimos y mejores desmontajes de hardware y noticias de reparación!

Este desmontaje no es una guía de reparación. Para reparar tu MacBook Pro 13" Touch Bar Late 2016, utiliza nuestros manuales de servicio .

  1. La pregunta del millón de dólares actual: ¿Es esta una versión ampliada de la "Edición de escape" de 13 pulgadas o una versión reducida de la unidad Touch Bar de 15 pulgadas? Esto es lo que las especificaciones técnicas nos dicen: Pantalla Retina IPS con retroiluminación LED de 13.3 "con resolución de 2560 × 1600 (227 ppp), gama de colores P3
    • La pregunta del millón de dólares actual: ¿Es esta una versión ampliada de la "Edición de escape" de 13 pulgadas o una versión reducida de la unidad Touch Bar de 15 pulgadas? Esto es lo que las especificaciones técnicas nos dicen:

    "Today's million-dollar question: Is this a scaled-up version of the 13-inch "Escape Edition," or a scaled-down version of the 15-inch Touch Bar unit? Here's what the tech specs tell us:"

    So we'll need the teardown of the 15" to be sure.

  2. Una inspección rudimentaria de la carcasa exterior revela las certificaciones esperadas de la FCC y un nuevo número de modelo: A1706. El Touch Bar es bonito, pero falta ... algo.
    • Una inspección rudimentaria de la carcasa exterior revela las certificaciones esperadas de la FCC y un nuevo número de modelo: A1706.

    • El Touch Bar es bonito, pero falta ... algo.

    • No le diremos a Apple si no lo hará.

    • Estamos ansiosos por agarrar nuestros destornilladores y ponernos a trabajar, pero primero, vamos a sacar el resto de la Retina MacBook Pro de 13 "para algunas comparaciones rápidas ...

  3. Según Apple, las dimensiones de este MacBook Pro coinciden exactamente con las de la máquina "Escape Edition" que derribamos hace un par de semanas. ¿Lo creemos incluso por un segundo? Sí. ¿Extrañas tus teclas de función? Mantén presionada la tecla Función para ver las teclas de función que faltan. Modo camaleón, participa. Una cosa que es notablemente diferente es, por supuesto, la situación del puerto en el lado de estribor. Esta máquina equipada con Touch Bar incluye dos puertos Thunderbolt adicionales, por lo que tiene el doble de lugares para enchufar sus dongles.

    • Una cosa que es notablemente diferente es, por supuesto, la situación del puerto en el lado de estribor. Esta máquina equipada con Touch Bar incluye dos puertos Thunderbolt adicionales, por lo que tiene el doble de lugares para enchufar sus dongles.

    • Al lanzar ambas máquinas a la báscula, encontramos que la versión de la Touch Bar pesa unos 20 gramos menos que su contraparte. Estamos marcando la diferencia hasta la batería más pequeña de este portátil.

    • Finalmente, observamos un par de ventilaciones laterales en la parte inferior de la versión de la Barra táctil, similares a las que hemos visto en la Retina MacBook Pro anterior, pero ausentes del modelo de la tecla de función.

  4. Volando a través de la danza pentalobe-y-ventosa normalmente reservada para iPhones, abrimos la tapa con una maniobra de deslizamiento familiar. ¡Juguemos a "detectar las diferencias"! A la izquierda tenemos el Touch Bar MBP, y a la derecha está el Escape Edition MBP. Características de la barra táctil: una batería más pequeña, dos ventiladores, disipador de calor con dos extremos, sin tarjeta SSD y altavoces inferiores (que en realidad no se alinean con sus rejillas).

    • En el modelo de la barra táctil, parece que solo podemos quitar el panel táctil y la toma de auriculares antes de tocar una barrera de la placa lógica.

    Seems to bad that they put a *smaller* battery into the Touch Bar model. It has a faster processor (2.9 to 2.0 i5), which presumably uses more power. It has a faster memory bus - that might change power usage, and it has two more thunderbolt/USB-C ports (or maybe two thunderbolt/USB-C and two USB-C-only) I don't know whether that would add a bigger power drain unless all four ports are being used.

    Could Apple have simply added half an inch thickness and stuffed in more battery cells without turning it into a "thermal bomb"? (Of course they'd never do that because Apple's thin-ness obsession..)

    jimwitte - Contestar

    Why does Escape Edition MBP has only one fan where as Touch bar MBP has two?

    samprockstar - Contestar

    Escape edition has a TDP of 15W, while the Touch Bar edition has a TDP of 28W. Almost twice the heat, so need two fans during heavy duty tasks.

  5. Parece que el 2016 es el año del conector nuevo, ya que está es la segunda vez que hemos visto el nuevo enfoque al puente de batería. Estos zócalos de bronce son para las terminales positivas y negativas de la batería. Apple también parece que ha incluido un conector que va... ¿a ningún lado?

    • Estos zócalos de bronce son para las terminales positivas y negativas de la batería.

    • Apple también parece que ha incluido un conector que va... ¿a ningún lado?

    • ¿Puede ser que sea un puerto de diagnóstico? Los circuitos y el firmware necesitan ponerse a prueba, aunque hemos visto bastante cantidad de puntos de prueba, que generalmente lo cortan.

    • También encontramos el conector de auriculares modular esta vez sin un colgador de micrófono. Aquí pensamos que esto era cosa del pasado.

    • Cerca vemos un adhesivo indicador de daños por agua, esperando pacientemente el día en que derramas té helado en tu barra táctil y puede cumplir su propósito en la vida volviéndose rosa.

    Does it really have no mic input for headsets? Or did you mean something else?

    Malcolm Hall - Contestar

    Too many lines to be a diagnostic port, look at the shielding as well, this is a high speed interface.

    I'm thinking Apple realized it need a means to access the soldered SSD if the rest of the system died. So this is a jumper block to connect the onboard SSD to either the onboard CPU or externally to another system to access the data on the SSD via the connection. Its also possible it may allow one to add in a daughter board, additional SSD storage.

    Dan - Contestar

    That would be my thought as well Dan, they have to give themselves some way out when you fry your machine.

    Jonathan Larson -

    Add in a daughter board *where*? (Unless they want to go the way of Google's sadly defunct Ara project..)

    jimwitte -

    Dan, diagnostic ports often have high speed interfaces (e.g. JTAG and HSSTP) in order to debug onboard controllers.

    Michel Kakulphimp - Contestar

    Yes, thats true it would be on the faster side, but not so fast as to need the extra shielding. Also look at its location and besides a diagnostic port would have fewer lines. I'm very sure you are looking at a 8 lane PCIe interface given the number of lines (1x8+2x4). That would leave the two 4 lane interfaces are for the Thunderbolt chips.

    Dan -

    So are you saying its 3.5mm jack is just TRS not TRRS?

    Joe Blair - Contestar

    The "diagnostic port" is definitely a "emergency exit" port to access the files from the SSD when the rest of the machine is dead.

    Lukather - Contestar

    Definitely based on.......?

    alex -

    Until someone gets access to the service manual or training we are just guessing here. Common sense and experience can lead us to the most probable function.

    Gaining access to a dead systems SSD is a likely function, the other would be for diagnostics. I'm discounting the diagnostic function as one only needs about 20 lines to setup HSSTP for a low end setup. Remember the MacBook Pro is not that complex a device to need more than the basic setup (this connector is offering 42 pins + 4 grounds as well as a full shield)

    • También podemos informar felizmente que los trackpads de estos modelos respectivos son idénticos y probablemente compatibles entre sí.

    • Sin embargo, el enrutamiento del cable es diferente para adaptarse al diseño modificado de la placa lógica. Por lo tanto, si planeas reemplazar un trackpad roto, asegúrate de mantener el cable flexible original.

    • Por si te lo has perdido, aquí están los circuitos integrados identificados la primera vez:

    • STMicroelectronics STM32F103VB ARM Cortex-M3 MCU

    • Controlador táctil Broadcom BCM5976C1KUFBG

  7. Estamos listos para remover el resto de los periféricos: sería genial echar un vistazo a la batería, los ventiladores, el disipador de calor y los altavoces. Pero, no podemos. La placa lógica simétrica vigila el resto de los componentes, así que usamos un spudger para sacar sus cables conectores y liberarla de su caja.

    • Ahora observemos la placa lógica con forma de bigote para ver los chips que hacen que esta MacBook sea una Pro.

    • Procesador Intel Core i5-6267U con Intel Iris Graphics 550

    • Controlador Thunderbolt 3 Intel JHL6540

    • Memorial flash SanDisk SDRQKBDC4 064G 64 GB NAND (x2 para un total de 128 GB)

    • Samsung K4E6E304EB-EGCEDDR3 DRAM (4 x 2 GB para un 8 GB total)

    • Wi-Fi Módulo Murata/Apple 339S00056

    • R4432ACPE-GD-F

    Why are they using 4x2 GB RAM modules? Is this making any sense? Didn't they just use one?

    Albert Zweistein - Contestar

    That is JEDEC LPDDR3 spec and the spec intel processor supports.

    The LPDDR3 chip supports 32-bits data width and to support 128-bits LPDDR3 data width intel processor supports . It needs 4 four LPDDR3 chips.

    JJ Wu -

    A couple of possible reasons:

    - Wiring for 4 chips would be necessary to support the 1TB SSD option (4 x 256GB)

    - Access is faster when solid state storage is spread over more chips (wider bus).

    Neil Maller - Contestar

    Not sure I follow you here. The RAM interface is independent of the SSD interface (PCIe).

    Dan -

    Intel Core i5-6267U processor only supports LPDDR3 upto 1866Mhz (base on Intel link). If the LPDDR3 in the MacBook Pro has maximum data rate is 2133Mhz. Is the maximum data rate 2133 or 1866 Mhz?

    Nguyen Hung Son - Contestar

    Apple control so much of what they use that it gives them potential to go a long way outside the box.

    Given that they totally control the SSD controller, then there are things that they could do to greatly improve paging performance to fast SSD. And those things could well involve wanting the widest memory path that they can get.

    alex - Contestar

    Could "R4432ACPE-GD-F" be "F4432ACPE-GD-F"? That should be the SSD controller which is the same one in the MBP w/o Touch Bar.

    JJ Wu - Contestar

    which network card is in it?..........

  10. Al dar vuelta la placa lógica, no nos encontramos con una escasez de componentes: Almacenamiento flash SanDisk SDRQKBDC4 64 GB NAND  (como se ve en la SSD extraíble de la Edición Escape )—llevándolo a un total de 256 GB
    • Al dar vuelta la placa lógica, no nos encontramos con una escasez de componentes:

    • Almacenamiento flash SanDisk SDRQKBDC4 64 GB NAND (como se ve en la SSD extraíble de la Edición Escape )—llevándolo a un total de 256 GB

    • Controlador NFC NXP 66V10, que contiene Secure Element 008 y NXP PN549 (como en el iPhone 6s)

    Does the NFC chip mean that the MBP could theoretically be used with Apple Pay? Or is there some other reason they would have included it? (Apple, *futureproofing*? The devices are almost hermetically sealed, so there's probably no possibility of even an "Apple blessed" upgrade option) Chipworks has their docs on it, but they cost many hundreds or thousands of dollars each (do they perhaps have a student discount?)

    jimwitte - Contestar

    It's only for the secure element. If my memory is right, the iPad also has a similar controller but doesn't support NFC.

  12. Otra característica nueva de la MacBook Pro con barra táctil es la adición del Touch ID. Si bien esta es la primera computadora Mac que cuenta con un lector de huellas digitales, la tecnología ha existido desde al menos 2004. Bienvenida a la familia.
    • Otra característica nueva de la MacBook Pro con barra táctil es la adición del Touch ID.

    • Si bien esta es la primera computadora Mac que cuenta con un lector de huellas digitales, la tecnología ha existido desde al menos 2004.

    • Bienvenida a la familia.

    • El hardware que impulsa esta característica ingeniosa cuenta con un botón junto con sensores capacitivos que pueden distinguir los dedos. Bravo por la biometría.

    • Ese botón también funciona como el botón de encendido, por lo que arreglar un botón de encendido puede ser más costoso de lo que era antes.

    • El botón Touch ID está cubierto por un cristal de zafiro, que debería proteger el escáner de huellas digitales de los rasguños.

    Are you seeing any water protection around the Touch ID button and case? This is one part I see needing to be regularly cleaned (just like on the iPhone) to get rid of oils so it actually works.

    plink53 - Contestar

    @plink53 - Looking at the images it doesn't look like any sealant was added where the part meets the body. I would have expected a gasket or sealant caulk traces to be seen, none are. Thats also true with the Touch Bar & Track Pad as well.

    Samsung and Micron/MicronPC/MPC laptops had fingerprint readers and security software using them since the late 1990's. Dunno if Samsung continued to do so after MPC went out of business in 2008, cutting off that channel for selling Samsung's high end laptops in the North American market.

  13. Colgada de cada extremo de la placa lógica, encontramos una pequeña placa USB-C modular. Ahora que nuestro querido conector MagSafese ha retirado, es mucho más probable que un paso descarriado en el cable de alimentación dañe sus puertos, por lo que es alentador ver que el hardware USB-C se puede reemplazar por separado (aunque tendrás que quitar el tablero lógico para llegar a ella). Si bien los dos módulos USB-C son idénticos a nuestros ojos, Apple señala que solo los puertos del lado izquierdo ofrecen un rendimiento Thunderbolt 3 de ancho de banda completo.

    • Con eso, finalmente podemos extraer los ventiladores. Estos sopladores altamente promocionados miden 43 mm de diámetro, un poco menos que el ventilador de 45 mm que encontramos en el MacBook Pro de nivel de entrada (pero sí, obtienes dos de ellos).

    I think it was a big mistake to loose the MagSafe concept for the power cord. I've tripped on my cord a few times thankfully the cord disconnected before the laptop took a spill.

    Could the USB-C hardware-connector spec be made with a magnetic clasp? Or does Microsoft have a patent on doing that for something with more than 5 pins?

    • Albergados cómodamente entre el borde de la MacBook y el teclado, hay dos rejillas de parlantes, conductos cuidadosamente diseñados que canalizan las ondas de sonido de la MacBook Pro directamente a ... Espera.

    • Los altavoces no están ubicados debajo de las rejillas de los altavoces. La rejilla del altavoz ni siquiera pasa por la caja.

    • Estos altavoces probablemente emiten un sonido impresionante a través de las salidas de aire laterales.

    • Las "rejillas" son aparentemente cosméticas, tal vez para unificar la línea de productos. Curiosamente, la edición de la tecla de función también tiene algunos agujeros falsos, aunque diferentes.

    • Actualización de desmontaje: Muy bien, la mayoría de estos agujeros son cosméticos, pero después de sacar los altavoces de agudos en el siguiente paso, está claro que algunos de estos son agujeros pasantes que llevan el sonido fuera del gabinete de la Mac.

    It looks to me like these speakers are simply ported— a common technique used in home theater speakers to achieve bigger sound. Also, the way this is laid out the speakers are further away from the logic board too, which might allow Apple to crank the bass further up, knowing that potentially chip-breaking low-frequency sound waves have more distance to dissipate.

    Slipp D - Contestar

    All those perforations probably shave off quite a few grams of weight compared to a solid slab of aluminium.

    matthiasbartosik - Contestar

    Perhaps - then why didn't they put *more* of them in? Since weight seems to be second only to thin-ness on Apple's list-of-priorities.

    jimwitte -

    "These speakers likely blast their impressive sound through the side air vents."

    Eyes are useful, but for some things Ears can be a better tool?

    Lok - Contestar

    I spill only a drop of water at speaker grill on the left. Is it damaged my macbook?

    Chinnawat Ong-art - Contestar

    If you cover the speaker grilles it does block the sound, your detail is incorrect.

    Anthony Brocco - Contestar

    so the grills only go clear through the case at the bottom as shown ? I dropped only a few drops of liquid on the upper grills beside the delete button and cleaned it right away, is it safe ?

    Peter Labib - Contestar

    Yeah, despite all the whining in the comments, all those speaker holes up there ARE cosmetic. The only ones that are actual, functional holes in the aluminum are way down next to the right arrow key. As long as your spill didn’t get onto the keyboard keys or the power button, you’re perfectly fine—it’s no different than if you got some liquid onto the palm rest or the display lid. Rest easy!

    Hmmm, two-way audio system in a Mac laptop? Interesting.

    hugostonge - Contestar

    It is a two way sound system. If you cover the top "holes" with your hands the high frequency cuts out. However, it's hard to tell if all the holes are drilled or just enough for the tweeter. In any case it sounds great and is LOUD. I suppose the function key model though will sound better.

    • Estamos tan cerca de la Barra Táctil que casi la podemos, bueno, tocar.

    • Apple parece estar apostando por la tecnología de punta, al golpear un tornillo pentalobe P2 sobre el punto de entrada de la barra táctil.

    • Suerte que siempre venimos preparados.

    The power/Touch ID button needs to be replaced at the same time as the logic board, or vice versa as they're paired at the factory presumably. So a power button means you have to transfer ALL the data from one SSD to the next!!

    Does photo 2 here serve as confirmation that the leftmost part of the touch bar is inactive, meaning that a soft escape key cannot be properly located far enough left to be directly above the backquote/tilde key?

    John Pane - Contestar

    But it's actually touchable. If you touch the leftmost part of the touch bar, esc-key will be pressed (and highlighted).

  17. Finalmente, arrancamos la batería de 5 celdas (fuertemente adherida) Bueno, cinco más o menos. Con un voltaje nominal de 11.41 V, los dos pares externos están conectados en pares y juntos tiene la misma capacidad de carga que el par de centro para rendir tres ~3.8 V celdas en serie.
    • Finalmente, arrancamos la batería de 5 celdas (fuertemente adherida)

    • Bueno, cinco más o menos. Con un voltaje nominal de 11.41 V, los dos pares externos están conectados en pares y juntos tiene la misma capacidad de carga que el par de centro para rendir tres ~3.8 V celdas en serie.

    • Será mejor que esperes que tu carrera "Pro" sea corta; Este reemplazo de batería es delirante.

    • La placa de la batería aloja la TI BQ20Z451 (una posible variante de la líneaBQ20Z45-R1, vista en MacBook Pro para siempre)

    • Con una capacidad de 49.2 Wh, esta batería parece un poco frenética en comparación con la 54.5 Wh de la edición de teclas de función, especialmente considerando que está manejando mucha más funcionalidad.

    • Colocamos estas baterías en una balanza: la batería del MacBook Pro equipada con la tecla de función pesaba 235 gramos, mientras que esta batería solo pesa 197 gramos.

    • La disparidad de peso probablemente ayude a justificar una barra táctil más ligera, pero la batería parece tener más vatios-hora de lo que sugiere la disminución de peso.

    Hello this rMBP 13,3" with touch bar , the battery how many mHa ?

    Portable External Battery perspective I'm interested in

    Imre Office - Contestar

    How could the touch bar edition feature a smaller battery but yet about the same batter hour of usage at 10 hours?

    honorousjack - Contestar

    Those cells look tiny. I hope next year's model has a capacity of at least 70 watt hours with two cells in each one.

    balkicityfossils - Contestar

    What about the keyboard? Can it be replaced?

    Jakob Zimmermann - Contestar

    Do you really have to take 18(!) steps in order to remove the battery of a touch bar model? Seems a little exaggerated to me.

    Roderick - Contestar

    This isn't a guide—it's just an overview of the hardware.

    • Aquí está la MacBook Pro 13" de finales de 2016 en toda su gloria de barra táctil.

    • ¿Decepcionado de que no pudimos llegar a la pantalla? Es el mismo procedimiento que encontramos en el desmontaje de la con Tecla de Función de 13": antena, cintas elásticas, todo.

    Nothing about the wifi card?? Is there a wifi card or its also solderd to the board?

    Sos Mac - Contestar

  19. Consideraciones Finales
    • El trackpad se puede quitar sin quitar primero la batería.
    • Los tornillos pentalobe patentados continúan dificultando innecesariamente el trabajo en el dispositivo.
    • El ensamblaje de la batería está completamente, y muy sólidamente, pegado en la caja, lo que complica el reemplazo.
    • El procesador, la memoria RAM y la memoria flash están soldados a la placa lógica.
    • La barra táctil agrega una segunda pantalla difícil de reemplazar al daño.
    • El sensor Touch ID se dobla como el interruptor de alimentación y está emparejado con el chip T1 en la placa lógica. Reparar un interruptor de alimentación roto puede requerir la ayuda de Apple o una nueva placa lógica.

what a mess inside. especially given the spaces around the batteries, and the off position of speakers, looks like the chassis was optimised for the non-touchbar version (much cleaner layout, removable SSD, no gaps), and touchbar addition was a later decision. Maybe initially they envisaged only the 15" would have touchbar.

a similar case of "odd unused chassis space" happened with the first gen 13" retina macbook pro, which had empty space under the trackpad. Was probably a late decision to use small form SSD over 2.5" SSD. this empty space was used up on subsequent updates.

to me the touchbar version has way too many compromises. the biggest issues are: smaller battery, while using a processor with a higher TDP. and non upgradable SSD (arguably the only component that might require future upgrade, unless you want to pay extraordinary money right now).

Kim Zhou - Contestar

How do you do a power rest if the machine hangs? Before you held down the power button for a few seconds. Would that work with a touch ID button?

Maxim - Contestar

It still is a physical button. Just like the iPhones (except iPhone 7).

mamufek -

I would assume that you still do - the Touch ID sensor is still a physical button, so there's no reason it doesn't work like a normal button as before. However, to stop it shutting down the machine with a single click, I'd imagine macOS has some code in it saying "if the power button is pushed while the computer is on, it's probably for Touch ID things, so don't shut down".

WilliamTM -

in fact you have to press it long to act like a power button says the apple support page :P

oowaschbaeroo -

First generation computers tend to lend themselves to some issues. However, given the price bump and the Apple brand I was expecting more, much more. The concept seems nice, the hardware implementation not so much. Laptops are to be mobile, so sacrificing battery life for weight is not a design decision that appeals to me. With Skylake I was expecting the REAL battery life to surpass 12 hours...

Paulo Neves - Contestar

MacBook Pro with SSD RAID 0 inside?

Peter Gamble - Contestar

Not here, sorry ;-{

Dan -

So can you move the touch ID sensor to another mac? Does it still work? Or are we going to have an Error 53 for Mac and a connect to iTunes screens.

Miles Blakesley - Contestar

Of course you can't. It's like the TouchID on iPhones and iPads. It's paired with the T1.

Gianluca Borchia -

probably everything works execpt touchID, hopefully apple learned their lesson

Ethan Chow -

Whoever writes these teardowns, dear sir/ma'am, you deserve a medal.

Lack of repair-ability is understandable and unavoidable in today's world of disposable gadgets. If my $500 laptop craps out, so be it. However, $2000 worth of computer is not disposable. I would never buy another macbook.

jhjh - Contestar

It's not unrepairable. It's just unrepairable by unequipped amateurs, which is where iFixit sell their bits and pieces.

And those same things that make it more difficult to repair, also make it less likely to go wrong in the first place.

Again, not in iFixit's commercial interest to encourage.

alex -

I guess I see things a bit differently than Alex here. True IFIXIT is a business as such they do need to make money, but its more than that. The vision is to not create waste by repurpose or repair. The more Apple goes down this path of non-repairable it kills their own mission of being ecology minded. People don't want to throw away a $2 - 3 K system just to get a bit more memory or storage. They want some expandability! Likewise, being forced to replace major assemblies to deal with a small part failure is also wasteful!

Dan -

Random question - what do you end up doing with the things you tear down after? Do they all go back together again (and end up in full working condition)?

Andrew - Contestar

As you can see they've already ruined a lot of things, so this is not going back together.

Tom Chai -

From the IFIXIT team: "Not to worry—we definitely don't let our teardown devices go to waste. Oftentimes we will use them to create a full set of repair guides. We create some in-house and also send devices through our edu program to teach technical writing. You can learn more about that here. After that, we make sure they find a good home, or dispose of them responsibly."

Wait, no split fin fans in the touchbar 13" either? I thought their website showed the touchbar 13" as having them...?

Somebody should tell the Apple guys at the wheelhouse that an iLaptop is not an iPhone before it is too late and most of us have jumped the iShip before some new Jobs guy has emerged to save it after all the latest course these guys have set.

MiKa - Contestar

If you compare in Step 4 the two versions of the MacBook, you can see the version without the touch has the vent openings for the second fan too.

Noted and the text was corrected clarifying the openings are for the twitter speaker.

Dan -

Does step 17, photo 2 serve as confirmation that the leftmost part of the touch bar is inactive, meaning that a soft escape key cannot be properly located far enough left to be directly above the backquote/tilde key?

John Pane - Contestar

The area is the interface to the ribbon connector that goes to the logic board. I do agree the placement is troubling. I suspect the designer wanted to be symmetrical with the other side as the Touch ID/Power Switch is the same amount of space so the Touch Bar is cropped in on that side. I'm surprised as well they didn't think this through. I would have brought the Touch display all the way to the left edge and used the underside for the connection point. There is no reason it couldn't be a bit asymmetrical.

Dan -

> There is no reason [the Touch Bar] couldn't be a bit asymmetrical.

Except that Jobs liked symmetry..

As long as the battery is glued in and the ssd and ram are not upgradeable, i'm not buying one. I'm glad I bought a mid-2012 non-retina when I did.

darthd - Contestar

You want retina.

Kim Zhou -

Sure I'd love to have a retina display with the benefits of the older case design! Is Apple listening?

Dan -

what a shame! apple think all their users are stupid. they probably are 99% right. Who cares if you cant upgrade the ssd? The next step will be solder the battery too? What else they can invent to suck the idiots money? I fell terrible windows pc are so much worst... for now who cares about upgrade at least the ssd will be in the hunt for the old models. And sandisk? common, this is only to change to samsung ssd next year and announce a twice fast ssd?

Thomas J -

it's crazy apple designed a separate 13 inch function key model instead of just shrinking down the touch bar model, sure it might save money on the long run, but design and testing and manufacturing two completely different 13 inch would mean ........................................................................................people from macbook air department would still keep their jobs.

Dan Fu - Contestar

This is the mate to the 13" Function key model Here is the 15" Touch Bar Teardown. What are you saying here, you want the new MacBook to have the Touch Bar?

Dan -

Am I reading the data sheet for the ram correctly? The Samsung ram was released in 2012, and is rated at ~1066MHz??? Is this somehow run in tandem to yield 2133MHz?

Briefly looking through some of the early Geekbench scores, it seems the new rMBP doesn’t have much of an edge, if any over the predecessor. Upon looking closer, it seems the memory tests are slower on the newer model. This doesn’t add up per Apple’s claim! Is this yet another crippling disappointment?

Brian B - Contestar

I guess the third microphone will become "visible" in the 15" model. In this 13" model it must be switched off (for sure).

weruaga - Contestar

Why da fcuk do you need to open it?!

IT JUST WORKS!

Ok, the Sandisk SSD can break down, that can happen. But everything else is working forever.

Andron MacBeton - Contestar

You do realize that the SanDisk SSD is now soldered onto the logic board, it may be the first to die, but if it dies the entire board is useless and thus you will need a logic board replacement. Lets hope you keep backups because without a removable SSD there's no chance of getting your data recovered.

jesusfrk258 -

It appears you do not grasp the concept of why repair guides are created:

~1 Some people (like me) just LOVE knowing how things work - that's how we become engineers, and are able to repair things and design other things, make informed decisions (which we can confidently pass on to others with less inclination or interest to know this stuff.)

~2 Because repairing your own device teaches you independence and VALUABLE skills which are transferable and profitable, and also enjoyable to learn and practice.

It's also fine to be a consumer who DOESN'T, but it's illogical for you to criticise or chastise those who DO take them apart, kapish?

Matt Foot -

GOLD contacts, not copper; the copper is the underlying substrate that is the PCB trace.

Matt Foot -

With respect, iFixit, leave the puns to us English folks, your attempts are extremely contrived and... well... they don't work and detract from the articles you feel the urge to force them into. PLEASE, just don't try to be funny - we come here to see things stripped down, not for comedy - others do it way better.

Thanks :)

Matt Foot -

Could the extra microphone be there to pick up fan noise in order to subtract it from the desired (External) signal?

turmunder - Contestar

Thank you for teardown.

Ali2 - Contestar

With respect, iFixit, add additional puns. We love your extremely contrived attempts at humor. They simply work, never detracting from the articles. They are as welcome as caviar on toast. Please, be funny! We come here for two things, stripping and comedy. No one else does it better.

Hello,

Does anyone know if these new Macbook pros have 3x3 Wi-Fi antennas like the 2013 models ?

Thank you !

Dan - Contestar

This model appears to have 3 transmit antennas (see image of the back without cover, near right fan). I think this is a 3x3 wifi model. The non-touch bar model is 2x2.

Steven Zhang -

Curious what the shielded port is for. I am skeptical that it is for reading the SSD, since the SSD usually needs communication with the SMC, CPU and requires 3.42v and 3.3v S0 voltages to power it (among other circuits/signals). Unless the reader tool which plugs in independently powers the SSD ICs, I think it will be unlikely.

I think there is a high chance it is just a shielded diagnostic port, to better protect it from liquid damage. On older models (Macbook Air is a good example) if the diagnostic port gets liquid damaged, Apple can no longer use the port to read important voltages. It can also prevent the Macbook from working correctly, which is why a lot of diagnostic ports get removed by 3rd party repair centres.

In time, we will see I guess...

Reece - Contestar

I've had many laptops over the years and at the end of use I always removed the data disk in order to protect my privacy. Now I have security/privacy concerns about the soldered SSD. If the logic board (or the SSD itself) goes wrong, how can you ensure that the data is removed?

Bob K - Contestar

Nah, it's pretty simple. Turn on FileVault encryption (you already have it on don't you?), and then when you remove your userID and recovery key you make the SSD unreadable.

Spinner Monk -

Alternatively, you could remove the logic board and destroy the SSD by smashing the data chips. I'd be a bit of a waste, but it's secure!

Why apple is making it's laptops unrepairable

muhammed dilshad - Contestar

Ives has too much input at Apple. He has developed an anorexic approach to design. He has slimmed down the look of MacOS from a 3D look to a flat bland desktop. Functional and repair sacrifices were made to make the equipment "The thinnest we ever made it" The touch bar is a nice idea but it can only be fixed by replacing the entire top of the computer. I have replaced just the keyboard for a MBP for just $40. It's held in with over 30 very small screws and was a lot of work. Still fixable though. Apple just replaces the whole top. We couldn't be foiled with special screws. Just solder and glue everything in place now. The touch bar is, in effect, part of the upper frame. USB C is great as a multiport but the loss of Magsafe is just wrong. We are back to our laptops flying off the tables again. Oh wait - More broken Macs that have to be replaced! Soldered in drives for the sake of thinness, look how this compulsion worked for Karen Carpenter.

Where is the wifi Chipset for the 802.11 and Bluetooth? why didnt you guys list it for the 15 inch model and you listed it for the 13 inch?

Moe Khan - Contestar

Hey there Moe Khan! In step 8 there is the Murata/Apple Wi-Fi chip. This is likely a combination of both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Unfortunately this is a proprietary chip, so there is no publicly available data sheet (at least as far as I know). This means we can't confirm that this is FOR SURE a Bluetooth chip. We are just "pretty sure". I hope this helps you! (I also responded to your post on the 15" MBP with Touch Bar).

Recently got my screen broken and went black as just the “broken” area displays strands of colors. Went to Apple Store and said that they would reply within the day but never got any feedback from them. Can the Retina Display be repaired without the need of buying another laptop? If it can, how much can it be to repair it? I would appreciate any answers. Thank you.
