This step is mostly unnecessary. The only cable that needs to be disconnected and derouted is the bottom antenna cable.
Uh, every one of those iMacs can be repaired. What site are you on again?
What iMac from a decade ago had a “beautiful, modular design”?
The data isn’t striped. As already alluded to, that implies to separate controllers on two separate drives. This is one controller accessing chips on two separate boards. As the previous poster pointed out, this would be no different that putting all the chips on a single board, just less flexible in terms of space. which is at a premium inside this enclosure.
Um, why? How would this be any different than if they had used an overclocked version of a slower chip? The speed is what it is, carefully balanced with other system hardware.
Apple bounces back and forth between more and less modularity with most new architectures. Claiming that there is some obvious trend here is silly and baseless.
Who is making these assessments of difficulty here?!? I’ve seen some guides that are incredibly involved and require delicate cable rerouting, unseating very fragile logic board connectors, and take over an hour, rated as “easy”, while things like this, that are only 5 steps (and realistically only 4) and require nothing more than unfastening a few screws and popping two large, readily accessible connectors, and can be done even by executives with tiny hands while simultaneously watching videos on Breitbart in under five minutes, are labeled as “moderate”. There is no way the difficulty of this thing can reasonable be called “moderate” unless the only things that qualify as “easy” are “Opening the Lid of Your Mac to Use”, and “How to Type Capital Letters on the MacBook Keyboard”!
Seriously, if the goal of this site is to promote people performing their own repairs, calling trivial procedures like this “moderately difficult” only serves to scare a significant number of otherwise willing and able users off.
It seems the digitizer is not held on by any of the screws. So it is not clear why one can not simply remove the digitizer and front glass using heat (or cold) without having to remove the logic board or much of anything else.
The info comment makes no sense. If you have to "re-stick it" then you have already peeled off the lower backing strip. If "it" means the upper portion of the strip, the use of a pronoun instead of naming the part specifically is confusing.
It should be noted that legally, such warranty void stickers are invalid. The Magnusson-Moss Act quite clearly gives users the right to upgrade, fix, and update their machines as they see fit, without voiding any warranty (unless the user, in the act of upgrading itself, breaks something).
