advertise in WWDC23Hey 15 inch Macbook Air has already undergone a classic disassembly of iFixit. The process consisted of disassembling the device piece by piece and explaining the necessary steps to do so, in addition to commenting on the issue of repairing the device and on the arrangement of the components internally.
In general, the new computer, inside too, is quite similar to its younger brother – which was also taken apart by iFixit. The differences, of course, are concentrated in the larger size of components such as the battery, screen and touchpad, in addition to the speaker, which now has six Amplifierscompared to four for the 13.6 model.
As in the smaller model, the battery — 25 percent larger than the 13.6 — has straps that allow you to pull out the component, though it can only be accessed after several other parts have been removed. This computer board removal process, as usual, has been criticized by iFixit for being unwieldy, and involving a lot of screws and hardware.
The computer’s lack of a fan was also commented on, which is only possible thanks to the M2 chip architecture (and Apple Silicon in general). Despite being a lesser component to break, the repair company said this could cause your MacBook to overheat, as well as shiver and crash.
The note given to the 15.3 MacBook Air followed the pattern of ratings iFixit gave Apple products: out of 10 points, only the computer achieved 3, due to difficulties in repair. It was pointed out that the product could have gained 2 bonus points if Apple had already provided parts and manuals for it.
