Why are there so few parts available for the latest iPod touch?

History

I've been looking and looking, and I can't seem to find a replacement display assembly for the 5th generation iPod touch for less than $80.00. I can find comparable parts for other iPod touch and iPhone models for significantly cheaper. I looked on this website, and they have a grand total of zero parts for this device. Are parts so scarce because it is a relatively new product? When can I expect to find a cheaper replacement screen assembly, if ever?

I am really at a loss here. Is it possible to use an iPhone lcd and digitizer in the newest iPod touch? Can I use a screen from an older model?

If you know of anywhere I can find cheaper parts for the iPod touch 5th gen, please let me know. The existing parts for sale are hard to find and seem very marked up. I've ordered this part (digitizer + front glass + lcd + etc.) for other iProducts and have gotten much better prices. Seriously, what is up?

Only found this replacement display assembly about $90 (maybe from China), it's really hard to find one less than $80.

There are few parts because the repairing of this device is frustratingly hard and economically disastrous. Just get a new one.

You cannot use similar parts, they won't work.

Hey Sophia, thanks for the link. Did you happen to order one from there?
