    I think the repairability score might go up one point. Seems like the display is a little more rigid and the cables are out of the way. But it's still pretty tricky to repair.

    The chip that enables Apple Pay at in-store credit card terminals. I wonder if Apple will enable this in the future. Although it would be pretty awkward to hold an iPad up to a credit card terminal.

    No it didn't. It didn't confirm anything. It told you the part number and that there are 2 of them. Then you can infer that it means 2 GB, but you can't find that part number anywhere to officially confirm these are 1GB each.

    The only thing we go by are the benchmarks that say it is 2GB. Nothing iFixit said confirms it.

    There have been multiple postings from geek bench and other diagnostic apps that have shown 2GB of RAM.

    It doesn't have NFC. It has an NFC controller chip.
