The 2nd generation iPad mini was released on October 2, 2013. The biggest upgrade to the iPad was the new Retina display which boasted a 2048x1536 resolution. Some of the hardware used for the iPad mini with Retina Display was also used in the iPhone 5S including the A7 processor and cameras.
The most common repairs for the second generation iPad mini are replacing a cracked front glass screen or a dead battery. iFixit has complete repair kits for an iPad mini 2 screen or iPad mini 2 battery.
The iPad mini 2 front glass panel is held to the aluminum case with strips of adhesive. Once the device is opened, this adhesive will need to be replaced. Our iPad mini 2 repair kits include the needed adhesive.
