iPad 3 tear-down review (a look at what’s inside)
If you’re anything like me, then you know and love seeing the inside of electronic devices! (enough so that as a child I got in trouble for taking things apart just to see how they worked)
Well, the lovely M.J. over at iFixIt has done just that: tear-down of the iPad 3 — spilling out its guts for those that want a peek at what’s inside.
Happy New iPad Day! In this video we cover the biggest changes to the new iPad, including the fancy-pants 2048X 1536 Retina Display, A5X system on a chip processor, updated 42.5 watt-hour battery and 5 megapixel HD iSight camera. The real surprise is the uninspiring repairability score of 2 out of 10 (10 being a cinch to repair, and 1 being totally not worth your time). While definitely an upgraded iteration, Apple made zero effort to improve this New iPad’s repairability, which is a huge disappointment to us.
