iFixit has posted its teardown of the new 11-inch iPad Pro.

The new iPad Pro 11” sports narrower bezels, curvy LCD corners, and cutting edge silicon. This is apparently the iPad Apple dreamed about building from the very beginning, but what we dream about is a device that is easy to repair. Will this iPad fulfill both dreams, or will ours be left in the pipe? There’s only one way to tell—with a teardown!

Highlights:
● 11-inch 2388 × 1668 LCD
● Apple A12X Bionic processor
● Model number: A1980
● Four woofers and four tweeters, for a total of eight speakers
● Logic board is secured with adhesive
● Battery secured by pull tab adhesive strips
● 7812 mAh battery running at 3.77 V, for 29.45 Wh
● Modular USB-C port

Repairability Score: 3 out of 10
● The USB-C port is modular and can be independently replaced.
● The lack of a physical home button eliminates a common failure point and may simplify repairs.
● The battery is secured with both easier-to-remove stretch-release tabs and conventional, non-removable adhesive.
● The LCD and front panel glass are fused together—simplifying the opening procedure, but increasing the cost of repair.
● Gobs of adhesive hold most everything in place, making all repairs more difficult.
