Fourth-Generation iPod Touch Teardown in Progress
The experts at iFixit are at it again, documenting their fourth-generation iPod touch teardown as they proceed carefully through the process. Updates will continue throughout the teardown process, but here are some items of interest so far:
- With no visible screws, all it takes is a heat gun and some prying to open up the new iPod touch.
- Like the iPhone 4, the display and front glass are fused together, complicating repairs but reducing dust infiltration and likely making for improved aesthetics with the screen appearing to be "on" the glass rather than underneath it.
- The battery is 3.44 watt-hours, and soldered to the logic board.
