Video Instructions

Introduction

In this teardown video we uncover the M1 SoC inside the new 12.9” iPad, then explore the new mini-LED-powered XDR display and explain what makes it so different from Apple’s other Liquid Retina iPad displays.

This teardown is not a repair guide. To repair your iPad Pro 12.9" 5th Gen, use our service manual.

I know it’s not the focus of the video, but it’s great to see that the PMIC is cooled via a thermal pad at least. I wonder if the M1 is undervolted to fit the iPad’s power and thermal constraints as well.

Does the new iPads have reinforced sides (mic hole and apple pencil charge window), so they don’t bend as easy as the first gen? In Jerryrigeverything’s new video this iPad passes the bend test.

if you guys can show pictures with all the magnet positions would be awesome, it’s impossible to find the information online

Because all of the full-screen iPads are inter-compatible with the magnetic iPad accessories [Magic Keyboard, Smart Keyboard Folio, Smart Folio, Apple Pencil 2nd generation (heh)], I assume the magnet arrays are identical. Therefore, you can go take a look at the 3rd generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro teardown, or the 1st generation 11-inch iPad Pro teardown as they do contain these X-Ray graphs.

Do you guys know what is the IC Chip and what is the Transceiver in this new iPad Pro model?
