2018 iPad iFixit teardown reveals one saving grace

2018 iPad iFixit teardown reveals one saving grace

Apple’s devices have never been easy to open up and repair. They are intentionally designed to discourage tampering, which, sadly, also makes repairs harder and more expensive. Especially since most owners are pushed to only use authorized Apple repair services. The newest iPad, a.k.a. the 2018 iPad or the iPad 6, carries a lot of the previous generation’s design so its iFixit repairability score isn’t exactly surprising.

The new iPad is perfect for this Darkest Timeline

The new iPad is perfect for this Darkest Timeline

This week Apple introduced a new iPad made of old parts, with a couple new features in tow. I believe this was the most ideal piece of hardware Apple could possibly have released in this darkest timeline. I'm speaking of course of the Community-solidified concept of the Darkest Timeline, the reality in which all of the most extremely unbelievable (if not most evil) thing have come to fruition. This is not the worst Apple could have done - it's their best defense against disaster in these dark days through which we're living.
