iPad 2 Repairability Score - 4 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)
● The LCD is really easy to remove once the front panel is gone.
● Only standard Phillips screws were used -- no Pentalobular or Tri-Wing funny-business.
● The front panel is now glued to the rest of the device, greatly increasing the chances of cracking the glass when trying to remove it.
● The battery is very securely stuck down to rear case, and you have to remove the logic board to remove it.
● You can't access the front panel's connector until you remove the LCD.
