iPod Touch 6th Generation Teardown
We thought Apple might finally abandon their OG (original gizmo) money-maker. After more than a year, a truly new iPod Touch 6th Generation has landed on our teardown table.
The good news? It’s definitely more than just a refresh. Apple is bringing the iPod up to snuff with its current generation of iDevices with more features and even slightly improved repairability…hooray removable adhesive strips!
With the adoption of the iPhones’ now-standard peel-to-remove battery adhesive, the iPod Touch landed itself a 4 out of 10 on the repair scale. It’s a small improvement from the previous generation’s 3-point score, but hey…we’ll take it.
