iFixit scores iPad Air Low for Fixability

Apple Balla reports that, iFixit could not wait to lay its hands on the new Apple’s tablet iPad Air and take it apart. In their report published on Thursday, iPad Air scored very low on their ‘repairability’ score. It got only 2 points, with 10 being the best. While not good, this score is not as bad as what iFixit gave to the Microsoft’s Surface 2, which, giving it 1 out of 10, they found the most difficult of all tablets to take apart and repair.

iFixit regularly dismantles new tech products to check how difficult they are to repair by an average DIYers. After taking Apple’s iPad Air apart to its individual bits, they found that the tablet’s glass can be easily broken during the dismantling, earning iPad Air such a low score for ’repairability.’

As is the case with all iPads, iPad Air has a front panel that is glued to the rest of the device, making it very difficult to take apart without breaking the glass. In addition, IFixit checked the device’s battery and found that it is extremely difficult to replace, the most difficult of all Apple’s devices.

iFixit used the opportunity while examining the iPad’s repairability to check what other components are built in it. The company found out that iPad Air has an LG display, Elpida SDRAM, Toshiba Flash storage, USI Wi-Fi module and Broadcom Touch Screen controller. The device’s A7 processor is a bit different from the iPhone 5S.

iPad Air’s starts at $499 and it is believed that it will sell well on the launch day and after, but it will give a lot of grief to the DIYers because of its difficult dismantling and repairing.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
