[title] Final Thoughts
[* black] The 7th-Generation iPad earns a '''2 out of 10''' on our repairability scale (10 is the easiest to repair):
[* green] The LCD is easy to remove once you separate the cover glass/digitizer.
[* green] Air-gapped, separately replaceable cover glass and LCD makes many drop damage repairs far less expensive.
[* red] As with all iPads, a solid barrier of very strong adhesive bars the way to any repairs, and makes rework a sticky proposition.
[* red] More adhesive holds nearly everything else in place. Battery replacement is particularly challenging.
[* red] The LCD has foam sticky tape adhering it to the front panel, increasing risk of damage during disassembly.
