The iPad Mini, Undressed

The iPad Mini's Battery


Our friends over at iFixit got their hands on the new iPad Mini and, as is their wont, tore it to pieces. They say it's not, surprise surprise, particularly well-suited to home repairs or upgrades, relying on glue, hidden screws, and other tricks rather than treats for the repair-minded. They also found, as expected, that the interior of the thing is basically entirely battery. The teardown's still in progress, but you can follow along here.
