iPad Air 2 Repairability Score: 2 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)
The battery is still not soldered to the logic board.
The LCD and front panel glass are now fused together. This slightly simplifies the opening procedure.
The fused front panel also increases the cost of repairing a cracked screen, and increases risk of damage to the LCD when opening.
Just like in previous iPads, the front panel is glued to the rest of the device, greatly increasing the chances of cracking the glass during a repair.
Gobs of adhesive hold everything in place making all repairs more difficult.
