iFixIt has performed its teardown of the 6th generation iPod nano.

The new nano features:
● 1.54-inch multi-touch display
● 240 x 240 pixel resolution
● Built-in Accelerometer
● Stock Nike+ Compatibility
● Rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery with up to 24 hours of music playback
● 8 GB or 16 GB internal storage

iPod Nano 6th Generation Repairability Score: 5 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)

● Good: Once the display is removed, the rest of the disassembly is relatively straightforward.

● Good: The ribbon cable connectors make it easy to disconnect the display and headphone jack from the logic board.

● Neutral: The headphone jack and volume buttons are attached to the same ribbon cable and must be replaced at the same time.

● Bad: Getting the display off of the device requires the use of a heat gun, as there is a lot of adhesive holding it in place.

● Bad: The battery is soldered to the logic board, making replacement of a single component more cumbersome.
