New iPod Touch iFixit Teardown Reveals Few Changes

The nimble fingers over at iFixit have torn down Apple’s recently announced iPod touch, and things… are mostly the same. Digging into the device’s internals, the website found a logic board that’s pretty much a spitting image of the more premium touch models, with minor adjustments made to account for the lack of a rear camera.

In the 16GB model, iFixit identified the integrated circuits on the logic board, which includes the A5 processor, Wi-Fi module and other parts typical in Apple devices. Just like the device’s outward appearance, the innards are only slightly tweaked and rerouted because of the more available flexibility—the lack of a wrist strap will do that.

The new iPod touch is replacing Apple’s fourth-generation 16GB and 32GB models, which were priced at $199 and $249 respectively. This version runs for $229, and slots next to the Cupertino company’s more premium iPod touch devices, which come with rear- and front-facing cameras, as well as a wrist strap connection.
