iPad Air 2 tear down reveals A8X processor, 2 GB RAM, smaller battery

Apple's latest iPad Air 2 has been torn down to reveal the slim tablet's internals. With Apple shaving 18 percent of the thickness from last year's iPad Air model, the new Air comes with a smaller battery. Given that the company is still advertising the same 10-hour battery life, Apple has made considerable improvements to the software and other hardware components to make the iPad Air 2 efficient. Along with the slimmer battery, we also see the Apple A8X processor alongside 2 GB of RAM.

iFixit tears down the new 16GB iPod touch

Any time a new Apple product — like the just-updated 16GB iPod touch — gets released, it's a safe bet a tear-down will follow. The tear down will show two things: what new parts Apple has managed to cram inside, and what old parts they've kept along for the ride. Not surprisingly, for the price-reduced iPod touch, we're getting entirely the latter. This is the same iPod touch Apple introduced in 2012 alongside the iPhone 5, just stripped down to 16GB of NAND Flash storage.

As is customary with any new Apple release, the guys over at iFixit have got their hands on an iPad Air and proceeded to do what they do best; take it apart. It's as cool as ever to see what's inside, but the downer is that the Air scores pretty low on the repairability front.
