“Apple has literally been calling their iPod Touch 6th Generation ‘the best iPod touch yet,'” iFixit reports. “While they are giving their music box some of the iPhone’s newest duds, only [a] teardown will tell if this iPod is up to repairability snuff.”
“This Touch totes a 3.83 V, 3.99 Wh battery with a rating of 1043 mAh, as opposed to the 3.7 V, 3.8 Wh, 1030 mAh rated battery found in the 5th Generation Touch,” iFixit reports. “This logic board is packing: Apple A8 APL1011 SoC + SK Hynix RAM H9CKNNN8KTMRWR-NTH 1 GB LPDDR3 RAM (Same as iPhone 6, but underclocked to 1.10 GHz per core); NXP Semiconductors LPC18B1UK ARM Cortex-M3 Microcontroller (better known as the M8 Motion Coprocessor).”
So, 1GB RAM which is double that of the iPod touch (5th gen.)’s 512MB.

MacDailyNews Take: It’s interesting, yet understandable given the price of the touch, that its 8 MP camera (which matches the 8MP iPhone 6 camera) lacks some of the iPhone 6’s finer features such as the sapphire crystal lens cover and auto image stabilization. The iPod touch’s ƒ/2.4 aperture also falls short of the 6’s ƒ/2.2.
