Safety first! This battery disconnection is definitely not as foolproof as the bracket in the iPad Mini 5.

To protect yourself and your device, the battery should be disconnected as soon as possible. In this case, the connector is trapped under the logic board, so it needs a little help from a friend.

It feels like the display cables are just too short to easily free the cable bracket, making for a thrilling balancing/unscrewing act.

The dual-celled 30.8 Wh battery is a little bigger than the 30.2 Wh Apple promised, taking after the 10.5" Pro, and a big upgrade from the 27.6 Wh battery in the Air 2.

If only it had also inherited the highly-coveted stretch-release adhesive pull tabs ... sigh.
