Right to Repair


Video Overview

This teardown is not a repair guide. To repair your iPad Pro 12.9" 4th Gen, use our service manual.

    Final Thoughts
    • The USB-C port is modular and can be independently replaced.
    • The lack of a physical home button eliminates a common failure point and may simplify repairs.
    • The battery is secured with both easier-to-remove stretch-release tabs and conventional, non-removable adhesive.
    • The LCD and front panel glass are fused together—simplifying the opening procedure, but increasing the cost of repair.
    • Gobs of adhesive hold most everything in place, making all repairs more difficult.
