    Hello, would anyone be so kind as to answer the following questions.
    Has the logic board in an iPad mini2 W/ Retina display changed mid production? A1490 serial number DLXM36JWFLMK.
    The schematics that I have found for this particular model differ from x-Ray images I have taken. Apple would not give me a conclusive answer, and their company policy is not to open up ipads in general. Any help or guidance on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

    The iPad mini 2 model A1490 is for the iPad mini 2 (Wi-Fi + Cellular) worldwide, if that helps. There were different iPad Mini (Wi-Fi + Cellular) models: A1490 (Worldwide), A1491 (China). There also was the Wi-Fi only A1489 (Wi-Fi). The logic board would be different depending on the model.

    I've seen this website, if you pause the video when he takes out the logic board and compare it to the images I've taken on my device, they don't match.

    Here is what the logic board for the iPad mini 2 (Wi-Fi + Cellular) looks like. Does this look familiar?
