Repairability Score: 1 out of 10
● The trackpad can be removed without first removing the battery.
● The processor, RAM, and flash memory are soldered to the logic board. Repairs and upgrades will be impractical at best.
● The top case assembly, which includes the keyboard, battery, and speakers, is glued together—making all those components impractical to replace separately.
● The Touch ID sensor doubles as the power switch, and is paired with the T2 chip on the logic board. Fixing a broken power switch may require help from Apple, or a new logic board.
