As usual the guys over at iFixit have got their hands on the new iPad Mini and instantly tore it apart to reveal the components and parts inside of the Mini tablet.

Overall the site gave the iPad Mini a repairability score of 2/10, this was due to a number of reasons, in fact one of the only great parts was the fact that the LCD and glass wasn’t fused together and instead glued together, which I’m not sure if that’s any better, but it does mean they can be replaced independently.

However as the front glass, battery, front camera, back camera and ribbon cables have all be attached with “copious amounts of adhesive” to keep them in place a repair could be extremely difficult, alongside which the Lightning connector has been soldered to the logic board which is a breakage waiting to happen, there’s also some hidden screws which can catch you of guard when tearing down the tablet.
