iPod nano 6G teardown finds tiny battery, high-PPI screen

iFixit has posted its teardown of the sixth-generation iPod nano. According to the service, disassembly of the nano is fairly straightforward once the display is removed—a task which requires a heat gun—and looks quite similar to the fourth-generation iPod shuffle once inside. Notably, the nano 6G sports a 105 mAh battery, features a 240×240 display for a pixel density of 220 pixels per inch—second only to the iPhone 4’s and fourth-generation iPod touch’s Retina Displays. Overall, iFixit gave the iPod nano 6G a five out of 10 on the repairability scale, with 10 being the easiest to repair.
