The New iPod Nano's Got a New Apple Processor

Just a few days after we first saw the new fitness-centric iPod Nano, iFixit has already exposed its guts. Turns out the new Nano didn't just get a UI upgrade—it got some new hardware too.

The product tweaks on the new Nano include an Apple processor and a new SanDisk flash memory to replace the old Toshiba one. In both cases the components don't have notable spec improvements, but they'll probably improve performance a smidge. Much of the other hardware like the 240-by-240 pixel multitouch display has stayed the same. Don't expect any of this to matter more than the nice software update and the price drop, though.
