For most laptops/tablets you have to pull off the top bezel, remove the keyboard, and it is under the metal heat sink. On rare occasions you can unscrew one of the panels on the bottom and it would be located under a long piece of metal (heat sink) there. This can be a very delicate process and if you have never done it before I would HIGHLY recommend getting a trained professional to assist you.

How do I get this apart so I can change/remove micro chip

Hi there,

I think you would need to check with the manufacturer, and the specifications of your tablet, to see if that is even possible. In many cases like in notebook computers the processor, is going to be soldered to the board. Assuming that it is a removable item, then you would need to find the compatible processors as well as a service or maintenance guide for the specific model of tablet for any assembly instructions.

I post on behalf of HP.

Apple will let you know when updates are available for your device. If you have an older model, iOS 6 will not work with your processor. Work with an older version of the app or update to a newer device.
