Apple’s classic iPods are fitted with a front panel known as the faceplate. This panel provides protection for the entire front of the iPod, including a clear rectangular window that shields the LCD screen from damage.
The iPod was introduced in 2001 with a white plastic faceplate, and aside from the limited edition U2 models, all iPod faceplates remained white in color until 2005 with the release of the 5th generation iPod Video, which still featured its iconic white faceplate, but this time with an all new black design as well. Two years later in 2007, the iPod’s plastic faceplate was replaced with a more durable metal composition, and in two color options: silver or black.
Replacement of the iPod’s faceplate is a desirable option if you are dissatisfied with the color of the device. You may also want to replace the faceplate for cosmetic reasons, such as the removal of scratches, pry marks, or unsightly wear. Whatever the reason, we have lots of options for you to choose from.
In addition to Apple’s stock colors, we now offer a variety of exciting new choices for the 5th, 6th and 7th generation models, including: blue, gold, green, purple, red, yellow, and clear!
Replacing the faceplate is an inexpensive way to restore the front cover of your iPod, making it look brand new again, while also dramatically increasing the resale value of the device.
