The 2nd generation iPad mini was released on October 2, 2103. The biggest upgrade to the iPad was the new Retina display which boasted a 2048x1536 resolution. This version of the iPad Mini with Retina Display features dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi with MIMO capability, Bluetooth 4.0, and in the US is designed for cellular service on the AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon networks.
The most common repairs for the second generation iPad mini are replacing a cracked front glass screen or a dead battery. iFixit has complete repair kits for an iPad mini 2 screen or iPad mini 2 battery.
The iPad mini 2 front glass panel is held to the aluminum case with strips of adhesive. Once the device is opened, this adhesive will need to be replaced. Our iPad mini 2 repair kits include the needed adhesive.
