TechRestore has posted an HD stop-motion video of an iPad teardown. The video shows the extensive number of components used in the display assembly, as well as the tight assembly of all the components.
TechRestore has been making these videos for many of Apple’s new devices, especially iPhone OS devices. This one starts with the device in the box, and uses 1,675 HD frames of stop-motion animation.
