hi friends, got my ipad mini 64gb LTE in Dec. 2012. I absolutely love it and its with me all the time. I recently found out that apple will NOT replace batteries for the ipad, but will replace the whole thing with a refurb. I know the battery will probably last 3 years.. and I'll probably upgrade sooner than that. But it knid of bums me out to have a device I paid so much for which is essentially 'disposable'. Does this bother anyone else? Is there a way to DIY your battery replacement for the mini ;ifixit score: 2/10 I tend to get attached to my gadgets.. I have a lot of old stuff that I've replaced the battery for. I just wanted the option to replace I guess!!! Cheers!
