We're pleased to see that Apple continues to use the battery from the iPad 5 here—model number A1484 with a 32.9 Wh capacity.

Not only does this make more of the same battery available, but reusing existing manufacturing lines usually means less waste!

We're not as pleased that they also brought over the same repair-impeding adhesive from the iPad 5.

Apple gave us a hopeful glimpse of easy iPad battery removal once before, but we haven't seen anything like it since.

The good news is that you can already get a replacement battery—and if you're a large organization servicing a lot of iPads, you only need to stock one part covering several models. (That is, if you can ever get the original batteries out in the first place.)
