Why didn't Apple's 10th generation iPad support the second generation Apple Pencil? The international repair team iFixit recently disassembled the 10th generation iPad to find out. According to the teardown, the internal structure of the iPad 10 includes a dual-cell 7,606mah battery, a logic board with A14 Bionic, and more.

The disassembly shows that the iPad 10 should serve the second generation Apple Pencil. The wireless charging coil is occupied by a component that positions the front camera horizontally, so the iPad 10 is only compatible with the first generation Apple Pencil.

The iFixit teardown also revealed that the iPad 10, like the fifth-generation iPad Air and the sixth-generation iPad Mini, comes with a pull-out for the battery, making it easier for repair shops and customers to replace it. The previous iPad 9 had the same design, and the battery was glued in place.

The iFixit team did not approve of Apple soldering the USB-C port to the logic board after the teardown was completed, noting that Apple's self-repair program currently does not provide iPad parts, manuals, or tools, making it more difficult for customers to complete their own repairs.

Apple announced the 10th generation iPad in late October, ITHouse has learned. Key new features include a 10.9-inch display, narrow bezel, flat edges, A14 bionic chip, USB-C port, Touch ID power button, FaceTime camera with landscape positioning, cellular model support for 5G, Wi-Fi 6 and the new two-piece Magic with a row of function keys Keyboard Folio accessory. Prices start at $449, compared with $329 for the ninth-generation iPad.
