The new 21.5 inch iMac scores a low point in iFixit’s repairability category as the tech giant is noticed soldering the CPU


As soon as Apple releases its latest model of iMac, the engineers of iFixit takes the PC into their lab and starts to examine different parts of the device, with a view to revealing its strengths and weaknesses.

According to Apple Balla, the engineers find plenty of great features, like: faster processor, enhanced PCIe flash storage and better graphics function. But, suddenly, they notice such an issue which has never been described by the Cupertino company, They find that the CPU of 21.5 inch iMAC has been soldered onto the logic board, which  disables the device from being repaired or replaced.

The engineers describe it as “a silent, but clear, shift to even poorer iMac upgradability.”

It is not a great experience to notice a trend developing day by day where upgradability, repairability and lifespan of a device has been diminishing. By soldering the CPU into the latest 21.5 inch iMac, Apple has clearly shown us that it is not concerned with the “repairability” factor.


However, iFixit gives the new 21.5 inch iMac only 2 out of 10 points due to the major repairability issue.
