10.5-inch iPad Pro Teardown

iFixit has published their teardown of the newly released 10.5-inch iPad Pro giving it a Repairability Score of 2 out of 10 (easiest to repair = 10). They also confirmed that the 10-inch model is powered by 4GB RAM (2 Mircron 2GB LPDDR4 chips). This puts the 10.5-inch model on par with the original 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

The 10.5-inch model is slightly bigger than the 9.7-inch model, but at 0.24-inches it is equally as thin. The reduced size of the bezels is what makes the 10-inch model unique.
