The dismantling of the new MacBook Pro didn’t come as many surprises. Other than the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, the new laptops are pretty much the same as their predecessors. The most interesting thing about disassembly is that iFixit used Apple’s guides to repair 2021 MacBook Pro models.
According to experts, the guide contains many safety warnings. It’s also “reasonably detailed and easy to understand”. At one point, Apple advised the user to throw the MacBook screen off the edge of the table and not touch the battery during repairs.
In terms of repairability score, the 2023 MacBook Pro scored 5 out of 10 due to many parts being soldered to the motherboard.
