In general, you need to highlight the following points regarding the maintainability of the tablet Pro iPad:


  • The battery is not glued to the motherboard, which facilitates its removal and replacement.
  • The Smart Connector port is almost impossible to replace. But the lack of moving parts gives hope that it will not fail.
  • The LCD panel and the outer glass are combined into a single unit. This slightly facilitates the process of opening the tablet.
  • However, this arrangement increases the cost of repair in case of need to repair the display and increases the risk of its damage during the opening process.
  • A large amount of glue keeps almost all the components in their places. This significantly complicates the repair process.
