"We delved inside Apple’s “refreshed” device and found the same components we’d seen in Touches of yesteryear, but with 16 GB of on-board flash memory. So it’s not really that this 16 GB variant gains a camera — instead, it loses half of its 32 GB of storage."
Unlike Apple's new cheaper iMac, the 16GB iPod touch features the same Apple A5 dual-core processor with 512 MB of RAM as the 32GB and 64GB variants.
iPod Touch 5th Generation 16 GB 2014 Repairability score: 3 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair).
● While very difficult, opening the case and replacing components is not impossible.
● The battery is flanked by notches that make prying it out of the rear case fairly easy.
● 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.
