iPod Touch 4th Generation Repairability: 4 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)
Good: Opening the device is pretty straightforward, as long as you have a heat gun and some iPod Touch opening tools handy.
Good: The headphone jack is not soldered to the logic board, a first for the iPod Touch line.
Bad: The front glass and LCD are permanently fused together, increasing the cost of repairing broken front glass.
Bad: Removing the display completely requires removing the logic board
Bad: Apple soldered the volume button and sleep button cable to the logic board. The previous Touch had a ZIF connector. This makes removing logic board very difficult.
Bad: The battery is still soldered to the logic board, just like previous models.
