The flash memory remains with 8GB, and is manufactured by the Japanese company Toshiba. The product does not store any content everything works for streaming , so the 8GB is more than enough to handle the operation of the device, even with the increased resolution of the films available in the iTunes Store, which are now offered in Full HD 1080p.

In addition to the aforementioned changes, the device has a second antenna that, although found, no one knows for sure the real usefulness.
