A few days after the “disassembly” of the iPhone 13 Pro, iFixit specialists got to the iPad mini 6. The tablet managed to become the hero of the news agenda because of its “jelly screen”, and iFixit paid special attention to this problem: a large part of the video presented below is devoted to elucidation of the reasons for the effect. There are, in fact, two of them: either the poor quality of the screen itself, or a different (relative to the iPad Air) arrangement of the elements responsible for displaying the image.
Disassembly begins with heating the screen, and here you have to be very careful not to damage the matrix. Next, a pair of display cables and a battery cable are disconnected. However, you won’t be able to remove the battery just like that, it is firmly glued in. And this is one of the reasons for the decrease in the maintainability rating. In general, experts say that Apple seems to deliberately complicate the possibility of repairing its smallest tablet. However, this particular model has one plus: the USB-C connector is modular.
In general, the iPad mini 6 received only 3 points out of 10 for maintainability. If something happens to the tablet, you will have to tinker with it in the repair shop.

Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 Pro has an innovative hidden antenna design. It is equipped with a single-chip Snapdragon 870 system, LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 flash memory, as well as the ability to install a 512 GB memory card.
The built-in 10000 mAh battery has excellent battery life and can last up to two days with heavy use. It also features a 67W ultra-fast charging, rare in tablets, that charges it to 51% in 30 minutes and 100% in 68 minutes.

Helio G80 and 16:10 screen: Honor is working on a new Tab X8 tablet
Honor introduced the Honor Tab X7 last year with an 8-inch IPS display, 5100mAh battery, and MediaTek Helio P22T chipset. This model was produced with both Wi-Fi and LTE. Now there are rumors that a successor to the Tab X7, dubbed the Honor Tab X8, is in the works and the release is coming soon.
The new product is credited with a more powerful MediaTek Helio G80 chipset with ARM Mali-G52 graphics. This processor has 8 cores – 2 powerful M Cortex-A75 clocked at up to 2 GHz and 6 energy efficient ARM Cortex-A55 clocked at up to 1.8 GHz. It is also known that the screen resolution will be 1920 × 1200 pixels, that is, the aspect ratio will be 16:10.
Other specifications of the tablet have not yet been reported, but we can hope that the new product will be significantly better than the Tab X7, which was released in May 2021. It used an 8-inch display with a resolution of 1280 × 800 pixels, a MediaTek Helio P22T processor paired with 3 GB of RAM. He also had 32 GB of permanent memory and a slot for a memory card.
Previously, it was reported which Huawei smartphones and tablets will receive the new version of HarmonyOS.
This is the iPad 10: the upcoming Apple tablet was first shown from all sides
The first renderings of the iPad 10, created on the basis of drawings of the upcoming Apple tablet leaked to the network, have been published on the Web.
If the images are to be believed, the iPad 10 will retain a physical Home button that has a built-in Touch ID fingerprint sensor. The source claims that the iPad 10 has a diagonal of 10.5 inches and is equipped with the Apple A14 single-chip system, which was installed in the iPhone 12 series. The tablet will be equipped with 5G modules, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 6.
In addition, the iPad 10 will run the iPadOS 16 operating system, which supports fast switching between applications.
As reported by AppleInsider, it will be difficult to keep the price of the devices at $329, so Apple may increase the price to $399.
The source adds that iPadOS 16 has been delayed until October, so the tablet will be released in October.
