Yesterday we reported that the repair smart speakers Apple HomePod will cost you almost the price of a new device. Specialists iFixit disassembled the device, and it has now become clear what this is due to the cost of repairs.
The new product from Apple is almost impossible to disassemble without damaging the individual components. Specialists iFixit had to use a variety of tools, including lotions, scissors and a hacksaw to get to the innards of the column. One of the reasons for the complexity of the disassembly is the large amount of glue, which bonded many elements.
Inside the column is A8 processor, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory. There is a low frequency speaker, separate the speaker to adjust the parameters of the subwoofer, the array of six microphones for the perception of user voice commands, and seven high frequency speakers, which has a function of reducing air pressure to reduce distortion of sound transmission.
Summary iFixit: Apple HomePod device with a very good Assembly, but to disassemble and repair the device is extremely problematic. Rating is 1 out of 10.
