iFixit rates the new iPod touch received a relatively low repairability score of 4/10, (with 10 being the easiest to repair.) They cite the following as factors contributing to the low score:

  • While very difficult, opening the case and replacing components is not impossible.
  • The battery is adhered with pull tabs that should aid in battery replacement.
  • Many components are soldered together, requiring either a very difficult or a very expensive repair if any one part breaks.
  • There are no external screws. Instead, a combo of clips and adhesive makes it difficult to open the case.
  • Ribbon cables connected to the logic board run over the top and connect on the bottom, making it difficult to remove the board or disconnect the cables.
