Are the batteries glued in?

Are the new 2021 14” MacBook Pro’s batteries still glued into the case like with previous models? Or have they improved the battery replacement story, alongside the other “pro” improvements they've made such as re-introducing the HDMI port and SD card slot?

The battery on this model has pull tabs that make it easier to take off the adhesive.

It's still a bit early, I've not seen any clear teardowns on the battery yet.

I'm sure the iFixit team will give us a good detailed teardown soon!
