Repairability Score: 2 out of 10
● Non-laminated, separately replaceable cover glass and LCD makes most screen repairs far less expensive.
● The LCD is simple to remove once you separate the cover glass/digitizer.
● As with all iPads, a solid barrier of very strong adhesive hinders all repairs.
● The Lightning port, a common point of failure, is soldered to the logic board.
● More adhesive holds nearly everything else in place. Battery and logic board replacements are particularly obnoxious.
