MacBook Pro Gets Only 1 Repairability Point from iFixit!

MacBook Pro gets only one repairability point from iFixit

The latest versions of Macbook Pro have been given only 1 out of 10 points in the repairability category, as the iFixit engineers find the devices very tough to fix.

Apple’s both 13 inch and 15 inch models of the new MacBook Pro are clearly seen as the toughest devices to be repaired in the current technological market. 

According to Apple Balla, the main cause of getting a low repairability score is: its parts are soldered onto the logic board, which makes the devices almost unfixable. The battery has also been soldered into the case, which hardens the process of pulling it out. The complexity of the repairability issue gets even worse as the trackpad cable is covered by the battery and the RAM gets soldered onto the motherboard, ultimately being irreplaceable.

iFixit finds that in spite of having a massive storage capacity of 1 TB, provided by PCIe-based new SSDs, the drives are not built in accordance with the standard format of 2.5 inch.

Though there are several repairabilty issues, the MacBook lovers are still excited to grab the latest MacBook Pro.
