This is because Apple has mastered the art of innovation, and continues to set the standard for what consumers expect from technology products.

On September 8, Apple announced the new iPhone 14, and customers began receiving them on September 16. There are several improvements to the iPhone 14 pro, including a new design, improved cameras, enhanced dynamic island, and more powerful processors.

Phone Opening Method:

Many YouTubers laud Apple for making it easy to open the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus, but the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are difficult to open. The iPhone 14 and 14 Plus are easily accessible from the back, which is good news for third-party repair shops. On the other hand, iPhone 14 Pro versions cannot be opened from the back. The display must be removed to repair the phone, which is risky for most repair shops. Apple will charge $499 for replacing the back glass, or you can use the Refox laser machine to repair it.

However, you can easily and effectively open it with REFOX RS50 Mobile Phone Opener & Clamp Fixture.
