Step Lines

+[* black] iPad Mini Retina Display Repairability: ***2 out of 10*** (10 is easiest to repair).
+ [* green] The LCD and glass are not fused together and can be replaced independently.
+ [* green] The battery is not soldered to the logic board or other components.
+ [* yellow] Teeny-tiny screws can be easily misplaced if you're not careful. Don't sneeze too hard while taking them off.
+ [* red] Copious amounts of adhesive hold many components in place—front glass, battery, front camera, back camera, ribbon cables—making repair extremely difficult.
+ [* red] The Lightning connector is soldered to the logic board, so don't bend its pins.
+ [* red] Hidden screws mean you'll need to be very diligent when trying to remove internal components.
