iPad Pro 10.5" Repairability Score: 2 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)
While not soldered in place, the battery is very solidly adhered—no more pull tabs like we saw in the iPad Pro 12.9".
The Smart Connector port is virtually impossible to replace—but incorporates no moving parts and is unlikely to fail.
The LCD and front panel glass are fused together. This slightly simplifies the opening procedure.
The fused front panel increases the cost of screen repair, and the risk of damaging the LCD when opening.
Gobs of adhesive hold everything in place, making all repairs more difficult.
