iFixit has released the official tear down of the brand new, recently announced 7th generation iPod nano. The nano looks exactly like its predecessor and features a 1.54-inch multi-touch display, a 240 x 240 pixel resolution, a built-in accelerometer and stock Nike+ package. There are also no screws. To take apart the tiny device, you'll have to take a heat gun to open it up.
In case you didn’t hear, Apple released new iMacs on Tuesday, which can only mean one thing: iFixIt Teardown! Or as the company puts it, they sharpened their suction cups (two of them, in fact) and dove in.
Now that the white iPhone 4 is finally on the streets, it can start to fade from legend into Apple history -- but not until the requisite teardown reveals any final secrets the ivory handset may hold deep inside.
Perennial favorite iFixit has done what we're too scared to do: they've disassembled not one, but two separate brand-new iPads, showing us the precious insides of the iPad 2 3G GSM and the iPad 2 3G CDMA models. If exposed circuitry makes you queasy, stay away; otherwise, the line starts behind us!
There was a great deal of hand-wringing in the tech community after Wednesday’s iPad 2 announcement over just how much memory the refreshed tablet contains in its diminutive frame. While many are speculating, a semiconductor analyst out of Korea claims to know for sure.
What fun is a new gadget from Apple if you can't take it apart right? Well, you don't have to worry about doing that to your new Verizon iPhone as iFixit has taken the liberty of doing that for you. What treasures did they find? Apparently a Qualcomm MDM6600 chip. Why is that important? Oh just the fact that it's dual-mode GSM and CDMA compatible!
The MacBook Air is thin, sleek and sexy, and we're not just talking about its chassis. Inside, there's a ton of metal and wires that make of the beefy innards of this relatively small notebook. iFixit did a tear down of the MacBook Air 11" model, and dissected each and every component contained inside the system. Here's a quick summary of what they discovered.
While some of us are still waiting for the FedEx truck to arrive with our new toy (er… Apple TV), others have been lucky enough to score theirs already, including the cats over at iFixit, who have taken their precision scalpels to the little black box and have the photos to prove it.
If you like seeing Apple products get dissected, then you'll love the 6th generation iPod nano teardown from iFixit. In typical iFixit style, they break out all of the tools in order to crack open the latest Apple device. Not surprisingly, iFixit notes that the insides of the iPod nano is very similar to the insides of the iPod shuffle, which share an almost identical form factor.
Lost amidst the flurry of new product announcements last Wednesday is another new feature for the fourth-generation iPod touch: Vibration, similar to what is offered in the iPhone. Meanwhile, Apple’s own product pages contain icons that shouldn’t be on the new media player.
