iFixit Teared Down Apple’s new iPod Touch
Experts from a teardown firm iFixit
One interesting aspect of the teardown is the headphone jack and Lightning connector assembly, which include a long ribbon cable that is soldered into the logic board.
Other aspects of the iPod touch are relatively standard, with the logic board including the flash storage from Toshiba, A5 system-on-a-chip, and the usual set of chips for handling touchscreen functions, gyroscope, WI-FI, and more.
Overall, iFixit revealed that the new iPod touch is difficult to repair as many components are soldered together and the device is held together with clips and adhesives.
