Repair iPad Air 2019: Rating is 2/10

As with the iPad mini 2019 teardown, the repairability of the iPad Air from this year is only rated 2 out of 10. The only positive point is that all screws can be removed with a regular Phillips screwdriver. It is considered neutrally that although many components are modular, for example the Lightning connector is soldered to the logic board. Further measures are negatively classified as unnecessarily complicated.
