The iPad Pro M4 went under the iFixit screwdrivers in its large version with a 13-inch screen. We can thus discover the disassembly of the tablet which shows us the new organization of the components, with a central positioning of the motherboard designed to improve the solidity of the chassis, much thinner on this new generation.

It is always necessary to peel off the screen to access the interior of the iPad, which represents a certain risk during repairs. iFixit is pleased, however, that the two battery modules are now accessible and replaceable without having to remove other components. The battery has a capacity of 38.99 Wh, slightly lower than the old model which reached 40.33 Wh. Another subtlety to be aware of is that the model with 256 GB of storage has an SSD made up of a single chip, suggesting lower speeds than the SSDs of the higher models supposedly made up of two chips.

iFixit also tackles the dismantling, or rather the destruction, of the Apple Pencil Pro which reveals its Taptic Engine at the back of the stylus as well as the new positioning of the magnets allowing the magnetic charging system of the Apple Pencil and the webcam on the same edge of the iPad. As with other Apple Pencil models, no repairs are possible, not even battery replacement.
