iPad Mini With Retina Display Spills Its Glorious High-Resolution Guts

By Mario Aguilar on at

The new iPad Mini with retina display finally started trickling into stores yesterday, and as usual, the fine folks at iFixit have taken up their multifarious tools of gadget disassembly and seized upon the unsuspecting device. Here's what this baby looks like under the hood.

From the point-of-view of repairs, the good news is that some key, likely to fail components like the LCD, front panel glass and battery are easily replaced. Other parts, like the often finicky lightning connector is straight up soldered to the logic board, which makes springing it loose all but impossible. [iFixit]
