Latest iPad Pro will be very difficult to repair
Some time ago wizards center iFixit has completed the disassembly of the new iPad, and published the results of their work. They said what the new hardware contains a iPad Pro, and how these innovations will help or hinder his service.
What’s new contains your iPad Pro? First of all, it should tell you about what is new version. It is a continuation of the famous line of tablets from Apple, only in a smaller package and with a little more than simple iron. The processor on this tablet installed still the same, a9h, but the amount of memory is halved from 4 to 2 gigabytes. Also, the new tablet has 4 speakers, which are capable of automatically adjusting the sound volume. Another connector is present to connect the keyboard to Smart Keyboard. The camera on the tablet has a 12-megapixel. It is considered one of the best products of Apple.
Employees iFixit first of all noted that the tablet used the screen is very high quality. Although it shines only 40%, which is significantly worse than the Air 2, but it has a special system of sensors, True Tone that allows the screen to adapt much better to the lighting of the environment in which it is located and that provides an opportunity to review the image on the screen at any place, even in bright light.
Actually, the Pro version with a 9.7-inch screen is not very different from its larger, 12.9-inch «brother». Their technical characteristics are very similar. And this is both the advantage and disadvantage of the new model. After that parts and components fit in a smaller enclosure, they had to be glued together, i.e. create one indivisible units, which significantly complicates the process of repair in case of damage or failure of one of these elements. According to the forecasts of a well-known repair shop, some parts and components will be impossible to repair or replace. And that means that the life of the entire tablet and restore its functionality in case of breakage significantly reduced.
The result is a tablet, difficult to maintain, and sometimes can not be repaired. At least for a short period of sales of the device, the optimal solutions in the repair of domestic workshops have not been found.
