iPod touch (5th generation) teardown

iPod touch take apart iFixit

When a major Apple product hits stores, you can count on iFixIt to take it apart, and that's just what it did with the new fifth-generation iPod touch. The new iPod touch features the same 4-inch display found in the iPhone 5, and began shipping to customers earlier this week. Here's what's inside:

  • Apple A5 SoC Processor
  • Toshiba THGBX2G8D4JLA01 32 GB NAND flash
  • Apple 3381064 dialog power management IC
  • Murata 339S0171 Wi-Fi module
  • Broadcom BCM 5976 touchscreen controller
  • Apple 33831116
  • STMicroelectronics AGD32229ESGEK low-power, three-axis gyroscope
  • Texas Instruments 27AZ5R1 touchscreen SoC

According to iFixIt, this is one of the hardest iPods to repair. Heck, it's just hard to get inside the thing due to lack of external screws, earning it a repairability score of 3 out of 10 (the iPhone 5 scored a 7 out of 10, for comparison sake.) There are a few other juicy highlight as well, so head on over to iFixIt for the full breakdown. You can pick up the new iPod touch for $299.
