With the increased slimness and compactness, Apple devices are progressively getting more difficult to repair. This was proved by the iFixit crew on the latest 9.7- inch Apple iPad Pro. The tablet was torn apart and the final verdict is what you would almost expect to hear.
Here, the 7,306mAh battery, and the 12 MP camera takes up most of the space inside. As stated by iFixit, there is adhesive everywhere, even opening it up was hard work:
The LCD and front panel glass are fused together. This slightly simplifies the opening procedure.
The fused front panel increases the cost of screen repair, and the risk of damaging the LCD when opening.
Gobs of adhesive hold everything in place making all repairs more difficult.
Its clear to see that Apple ditched ease of repairs for the sake of slimness, elegance and a compact shape. So you’re advised never to try opening up this iPad yourself.
