We'll give it that. ‣ Just like in previous iPads, the front panel is glued to the rest of the device, greatly increasing the chances of cracking the glass during a repair. ‣ Gobs, gobs, and goblins of adhesive hold everything in place. This is the most difficult battery removal procedure we've seen in an iPad. ‣ The LCD has foam sticky tape adhering it to the front panel, increasing chances of it being shattered during disassembly. ‣ You can't access the front panel's connector until you remove the LCD. v Score breakdown: iPad air
