Smart Keyboard Teardown Repairability Score Is Zero

Smart Keyboard Teardown Repairability Score is Zero.

Smart Keyboard is the first keyboard accessory made by Apple for their new iOS device, iPad Pro. It’s aimed to give a better typing experience on iPad Pro. Moreover, this step gives a clear message to the users that iPad Pro is an iPad with professional capabilities.

Its design is a derivative from a smart cover, which is made to be water and stain-resistant. The structure looks like a Mac Keyboard without a key function on the top.

Today, iFixit did a Smart Keyboard teardown to see the repairability score and the technology inside. These are the interesting things they found:

  • Smart Keyboard definitely breaks the record for the most confusing combination keyboard/case ever. Seriously, this thing has so many sections, Apple even included a handy “guide” on how to fold it correctly.
  • In order to make the Smart Keyboard water and stain-resistant, Apple encapsulated the entire accessory inside some high tech fabric.
  • The brains of the operation is Apple’s latest go-to microcontroller for peripheral input devices: ST Microelectronics STM32F103VB 72 MHz 32-bit RISC ARM Cortex-M3

  • Turns out, these are made of Apple’s mysterious “conductive fabric.” These connect the keyboard to the Smart Connector and allow for a “two‑way flow of power and data.”

iFixit gives the score of repairability for Apple Smart Keyboard, 0 out of 10. While durable, the keyboard is impossible to open without damaging, meaning no internal components can be replaced without destroying the device.
