Metals Used In YIS Technology ( iPad Mini 2 )

I will be telling you what elements and Compounds are used in our iPad Mini 2 and what those elements and compounds are used for in the iPad Mini 2 but first what is an element or compound? An element is a substance that is made entirely from one type of atom and A compound is a substance made from two or more elements
that have reacted chemically with each other.

Elements:

Aluminium is used for the outside layer of the iPad Mini 2 that is the part that you put your hand on to lift your iPad up and aluminium is mined in Australia,Brazil, Suriname and Jamaica.

Copper is normally used in the main part of the memory card of the iPad and the memory card is used for storing photos,videos and E.T.C. The largest Copper mine in the world is found in Utah and other major copper mines are found in  Arizona, Michigan, New Mexico and Montana.

Lithium is used in the battery which is useful because without a battery you won’t be able to use the iPad. Lithium is mostly imported from the united states.

Compounds:

Bronze is the thing that helps the display data cable to stay together as one and not break apart. 

Electrical cells are in the battery pack It helps the battery to stay longer and store more.
