iFixit’s teardown of the fourth-generation iPad didn’t uncover any real surprises, as most of the components and the battery are the same as in the third-generation iPad. One possible exception is the LG display, instead of the Samsung display seen in the company’s teardown of the third-generation iPad; however, as Apple uses multiple suppliers, other LCD manufacturers could be found in other third- and fourth-generation iPads.


All new additions to the fourth-generation iPad came as advertised — Lightning connector, front-facing 1.2 MP FaceTime HD camera, and the new A6X processor, notably all without major modifications to the interior of the third-generation model. iFixit gave the latest iPad a repairability score of 2 out of 10, same as the iPad mini.
