The 9.7-inch iPad Pro is the perfect solution for those who wished for the most advanced iPad but in a smaller package. Just how Apple managed to shrink down the premium experience is revealed as iFixit takes a look inside the tablet. Interestingly, this particular iPad from Apple was awarded a mere 2 out of a possible 10 as to how easy it would be to carry out repairs.
The smaller, more compact form factor seemingly increased the difficult to carry out repairs. Notable points include the battery, which is solidly adhered and is not conveniently removable via pull tabs. You'll need to be extra careful should you attempt to take the iPad Pro apart since the fused front panel makes damaging the LCD likely. In fact, adhesive is used pretty much all over the 9.7-inch tablet, making any kind of repair a tedious task.
