Just six Torx screws and a few cable connectors stand between us and logic board removal—not bad! Certainly nothing our Marlin Screwdriver Set can't handle.

Out it comes! The Air's logic board is not mustachioed like the Pro's, nor is it quite so minuscule as the MacBook's.

So far this is easy, but we'd prefer to see upgradeable components or straightforward battery access—AKA device-life extenders—over board access at this point.

Next we snag the daughterboard, which hosts a (highly endangered) headphone jack and some connectors for the speaker and Touch ID sensor.

Also residing on this board: a Cirrus Logic CS42L83A audio codec.
