Towards the end iFixit has given the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 a 6 out of 10 in terms of repairability. They explain that while the components are easy to replace the proprietary screws and increased waterproofing can make it difficult to conduct repairs. Furthermore, the glass on the back and front complicates things and could break.
