Apple launched the iPad Pro as its bigger and more powerful addition to its tablet portfolio in September alongside the new generation iPhones. The iPad Pro has been placed as a product that can cater as a tablet and double up as a laptop, when needed. The super sized iPad was essentially the company's take on Microsoft Surface Pro and Samsung Galaxy Note Pro tablets. A couple of months after Apple's iPad Pro got unveiled, the folks at iFixit have given it a tear down treatment. Here is what they revealed after ripping apart the Apple iPad Pro.
iFixit took a peek inside the iPad Pro and confirmed that the iPad Pro is home to 64-bit A9X CPU, and 4GB of RAM, but these internal components have now been shifted from the sides to the centre of iPad.
It also shows that while most of the internal layout of the new iPad has been done kept the same as the iPad Air 2, there are some noticeable changes made inside, which now include a new four-speaker audio setup. These speakers have been placed in each corner of the iPad Pro and have identical designs. These speakers can function differently, as the speakers on top offer higher frequencies while the other two speakers offer lower frequencies. The iPad Pro's speakers are capable of providing 61 percent higher back volume than previous iPads.
While the four-speaker set up will be pumping up the sound, iFixit says that these speakers come at a cost of battery, which could have been increased by 50 percent. The teardown masters have discovered that the iPad Pro is powered by a 10,307mAh battery.
After ripping it apart, iFixit gave the iPad Pro a repairability score of 3 out of 10, considering that they found that the iPad Pro is held together by using a lot of adhesive, which will make innards difficult to be repaired or replaced.
