iPad Pro’s Complete Teardown By iFixit, Gets 3 Out Of 10 Reparability Score

iPad Pro still gets better rating than the iPad Air 2

The new Apple iPad Pro just got released in few markets. Everyone is so excited to hear about this new device and people are even flooding to buy it.

The iPad Pro is 12.9 inch big with the hefty price tag starting at $799 for a basic 32GB Wi-Fi model.

For those who live in Europe the price is even worse at €899/£679 for a basic one. The ironies of the price even go further.

But what we really want to say that if we are going to lose such a fat bundle of cash than we really should know what’s inside this giant tablet.

iFixit, like every other time, has this time again taken the responsibility of a complete teardown.

The result is iPad Pro getting 3 out of 10, which is not much shocking but definitely a teeny tiny improvement when it comes to iPad reparability score.

The iPad Pro is held together very tightly with lots of glue on it. But, this makes it very difficult and challenging to replace a display.

The display is not hinged to an edge of the device, but tethered to the very center. The clean adhesive pull tabs along with a pair of 10.3Ah (38.8W) battery packs have been included in the new iPad Pro.

The device also includes self-balanced speakers. The speakers consist of resonance chambers and drivers which are neatly cut inside the back of the iPad.

The 2GB RAM modules have been manufactured by SK Hynix, not to forget iPad Pro features 4Gb of RAM.

iFixit also revealed that there is had a Toshiba 32GB NAND storage chip. The A9X processor is Apple’s very own product.

Most of the controllers are designed by NXP and the gyro is produced by 
an InvenSense MP67B.
