[title] Final Thoughts
[* black] iPad Mini 5 earns a '''2 out of 10''' on our repairability scale (10 is the easiest to repair):
[* green] A single Phillips driver takes care of all the screws.
[* yellow] Many components are modular and can be replaced independently, but the Lightning port is soldered to the logic board.
[* red] Battery replacement is possible, but still unnecessarily difficult.
[* red] Gobs of adhesive hold many parts and cables in place, complicating all repairs.
[* red] Removing the home button is tough, and will be required for display replacement if you want to keep Touch ID functionality.
