Creative Electron – The X-ray People

iPad Mini Teardown by TruView X-Ray

We first met the iPad in January 2010 when Steve Jobs introduced to the world this hybrid between a phone and a laptop. Fast forward 4 years, over 225 million iPads sold, and a solid 22% market share, the iPad became the standard tablet in the market. For today’s teardown, Jesse let us x-ray his iPad Mini so we can learn more what this Apple powerhouse is made of. Have fun!
