iPod Shuffle 4th Generation Repairability: 2 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)
Good: The control pad is attached to the logic board via a connector, allowing it to be easily separated.
Good: The lack of a screen eliminates a large weak point of other devices, making the Shuffle more resilient to falls. Just don't flush it down the toilet.
Bad: You essentially have to break it to open it.
Bad: The battery is soldered to the logic board, making replacement that much more difficult.
Bad: Apple keeps shrinking connectors. These super-small cable connectors are increasingly difficult to open without breaking them.
