Apple has quietly changed the design of the iPod mini packaging by reducing the size of the original square box by about one third. The new package is shorter from front to back, but remains the same height as the old. The package retains its clam shell design, folding open into two halves. The iPod mini is now on the left while the accessories are on the right. There are no longer any front flaps or instruction manual/CD package obscuring the view of the mini or accessories after opening the two halves. In order to unpack the contents in the new package, you must open the flaps on top of each half, which are marked by icons indicating their contents (headphones, cables, and so on).
