Apple is still very much in line with the delivery dates of its device launches. Said today April 30 the first orders for AirTags would be delivered, and they did.
And there’s always someone eager to get their hands on a new device to ‘put the screwdriver in’ and find out what’s under the holster. Well, there’s no shortage of time and the first teardown of Apple’s new tracker has already been released. And this time it wasn’t the boys from I fix it
As the company announced on the day of its presentation, the first orders for the new Apple tracker began today to ship worldwide: the AirTags. And if for a few days now videos of the first unpacking for the “connected” Apple who received the first units are running on the net, today the first disassembly has already been published.
Japanese YouTube channel Haruki just posted a video with a 14-minute in-depth analysis of AirTag. We already knew that the tracker opens easily to replace the “coin” type battery ref. 2032. But this video gives us a more complete look at the internal Bluetooth components, the U1 chip and other components, all integrated into a very small disk, the size of a motto
Lots of technology packed into very little space
With the battery cover removed, it seems relatively easy to remove the plastic inner shell to disassemble the AirTag, as long as you have one. tool fine for that.
One of the interesting aspects of the design is how Apple uses the housing coil as a speaker coupled to a small “speaker coil motor” located in the center of the device.
It seems that such a motor placed in the central magnetic field vibrates due to changes in current, and the coil side housing acts as a diaphragm.
The pity is that the comments on the video of Haruki They are in Japanese. But I’m sure the iFixit guys are already at work and we’ll have some new AirTag teardowns, already in English soon. But for now, we can be satisfied with this phenomenal dismantling.
