iFixit Team Performs Teardown of iPad Pro Smart Keyboard

Following the teardown of the Apple Pencil, the iFixit team has just recently performed a teardown of the Smart Keyboard for the long-awaited 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The experts have found out that thanks to using special materials and fabric, the accessory is extremely durable as well as water and stain-resistant. The drawback is that the keyboard can’t be disassembled and repaired without being damaged and made totally unusable. According to iFixit experts, the repairability score is 0 out 10, where 10 is the easiest to repair.

The Smart Keyboard has a model number A1636 and some chips inside to make it work as it should.

Apple's Smart Keyboard is an iPad Pro accessory designed to bring even more functionality to the table(t). But does it bring repairability? With teardown on our minds we decide to find out just how smart this keyboard really is.

Below you can take a look at the additional images showing the disassembled Apple’s Smart Keyboard designed to work with the iPad Pro.

The Smart Keyboard went on sale alongside the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil earlier this month and is currently available for purchase either online, or at physical stores.
