We want to like the Surface line, but it’s like a bad Tinder match: they look great on the outside but are trouble under the Surface (adhesives), and no matter how hard you try, you’ll never be able to fix or change them (unrepairable and non-upgradable).
iFixit teardown shows that an 10.5″ iPad Pro is essentially a scaled-down version of its 12.9″ predecessor. One move we’re particularly happy with is the retention of the 12.9″ Pro’s danger-free display cable placement. No improvement on the battery front, though: it’s pinned under the logic board, firmly adhered in place, and doesn’t inherit the 12.9″ iPad Pro’s handy removal tabs.
It’s Christmas in June! Our teardown confirms that the new 21.5″ iMac with 4K Display has both removable RAM and a modular CPU. Of course, Apple would say neither is user-replaceable. Accessing and replacing these components isn’t exactly easy, but we’re saying it’s possible.
