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.

iFixit takes apart the iPad Air, doesn't score well for repairability

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.

iFixit tears down the new MacBook Pro Retina 13-inch and 15-inch

If you enjoy knowing all about the bits and bobs that go into the technology you purchase, it should come as no surprise to know that iFixIt has already got their constructively deconstructive hands on a pair of new MacBook Pro Retina's  and as such, have already began tearing them down.

The 13-inch is still under way but the 15-inch has been spalyed out in all it's splendid glory and to no one's surprise, there's a lot of technology jammed into that beautiful little chassis. Some favorable highlights as noted by iFixIt about the 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina can be found below.

iFixit tears apart new 16GB iPod touch, finds iPod parts inside

Those teardown fanatics at iFixit have been at it again, this time with the new 16GB iPod touch. Since the new one is virtually identical to the current 5th generation device, you wouldn't expect there to be much in the way of internal differences. And, you'd be right.

iPad 4 gets a teardown, reveals that not much has changed

The iPad 4 has been given the same teardown treatment the iPad mini received by the guys over at iFixIt. In terms of repairability, it earned the same 2 out of 10 score that the 3rd generation iPad received. Other than a new dock connector and a few minor internal differences, much of the iPad 4's design remained unchanged from its predecessor.

The iPad mini gets early teardown

The iPad mini is no exception when it comes to getting torn down just to see how repairable it is compared to its larger siblings. iFixIt managed to get their hands on a unit a little earlier than the rest of us and took to tearing it down. It should come as no surprise that it didn't fare much better than other iPads and only earned a 2 out of 10 repairability score.
