Apple iPad mini TeardownWant to know more about what’s really going on inside the iPad mini? You can see it taken apart, down to the very last screw. iFixit has disassembled Apple’s 7.9-inch tablet, giving the world its first look at the device’s every component.

Among the highlights of this tear-down are a confirmation that the iPad mini has stereo speakers, and some questions about the battery capacity — it might be larger than Apple says. There’s also a warning to not break the Lightning port — replacing it will be very expensive.

For a step-by-step version of the process, with pictures and commentary, head over the iFixit website.
