Apple iPad Mini 4 is difficult to repair says iFixit
iFixit has already disassembled the latest iPad Mini to discover some key features of the super-thin tablet. The device is essentially an amalgamation of the iPad Mini 3 and the iPad Air 2 with a few optimizations to incorporate 2 GB of RAM and an 8 MP iSight camera.
We've already published our first impressions of the iPad Mini 4 with preliminary hardware measurements. According to iFixit, the iPad Mini 4 has received a terrible repair score of just 2 out of 10 points due to its fully laminated display and copious amounts of glue that can make both disassembly and reassembly difficult.
Core features of the iPad Mini 4 include its 6.1 mm thickness compared to the 7.5 mm thick iPad Mini 3. Battery capacity has been reduced from a 2-cell 6571 mAh pack inside the previous generation to just a 1-cell 5124 mAh pack. The Apple A8 APL1011 SoC with M8 Motion co-processor, 2 GB LPDDR3 SDRAM from Hynix can be found inside of the tablet. Expect our full review of the tablet in the next few days.
