On September 10, Apple announced a new iPad with a 10.2-inch display. He, like all other new products presented on this day, fell into the hands of the specialists of the iFixit repair shop, who disassembled it to the last screw and carefully studied the filling.

Having disassembled the new 10.2-inch iPad, the guys from iFixit found an 8227 mAh or 32.9 Wh battery, just like the six-generation 9.7-inch iPad. Also from the 9.7-inch iPad, the new tablet inherited the A10 Fusion processor. But the amount of RAM was increased from 2 to 3 GB. In addition to increased RAM and a larger display, the new iPad inside is almost no different from the sixth generation iPad.
The maintainability of the new 10.2-inch iPad remains as low as its predecessors due to the abundance of glue and a soldered Lightning connector. But replacing a broken display is still possible.
