US engineer breaks open iPad to study its insidesMar 17, 11:55 am
Luke Soules works for the website iFixit, which specialises in revealing the innards of Apple products and analysing them.
The- 27-year old became one of the first people to get his hands on the highly sought-after device at the Telstra store in Melbourne, after he travelled to Australia to get his hands on Apple’s latest offering.
“It’s 26 hours sooner than it’s coming out in the US,” News.com.au quoted him as saying.
However, instead of playing with the iPad, he took it to a lab and carried out a “teardown” using heavy-duty suction cups, a heat gun and guitar picks.
Soules revealed the much-talked about 9.7-inch Retina Display was manufactured by Samsung. (ANI)
