With a heat gun, a Philips screwdriver and a pair of tweezers  the guys over at iFixit decided that they would pull their new model off the iPod Touch apart, revealing  nothing new from previous Apple products.

They did  however find that the device is not one that can easily be repaired, which is mostly due to the use of the single ribbon cable used on the rear facing camera as well as the Lightning connector/headphone jack/microphone ribbon cable which has been soldered to the devices logic board.

They also found the home button on the new iPod Touch to be a much weaker, rubber membrane design, which is sure to cause some problems in the future.

But apart from that, as we mentioned before there’s nothing too shocking in the new design, you can check out the source link below for your own look  at iFixit’s teardown.
