Apple’s new 4K iMac is slightly more repairable than its predecessor

The folks over at iFixit have managed to get their hands on (and dismantle) Apple’s new 21.5-inch 4K iMac, and have come to the conclusion that it’s slightly more repairable than its predecessor, thanks to the inclusion a modular CPU and RAM, something the firm hasn’t offered since 2013.

You shouldn’t attempt to repair the new iMac at home

Even though the $1,299 mid-range machine can be taken apart in 14 relatively easy steps, it’s not something you’d want to do at home as there are an abundance of small, unlabeled parts. For this reason, iFixit gave the new iMac a repairability rating of three out of ten, with the higher number being the easiest to repair.
