After all that glue, we're treated to some less frustrating fasteners.

Knowing Apple's penchant for goofy screw heads, we brought our whole set of drivers. Thankfully this part of the Mini hasn't changed—we're just dealing with standard Phillips heads here.

Our drivers make short work of those screws and we remove the bracket covering the display and battery connectors ...

... and it brings along a friend! Turns out the battery flex connector is now adhered to that cover bracket, automatically disconnecting the battery when the bracket is removed. Nifty!

Hopefully this will help fixers to not accidentally kill the backlight on their displays.
