What is the lifespan of an iPod touch now, and I just want to know how long it would last if I was listening to music with the screen off?

Hi Mr. Sy,
 
Well that will depend on how abusive you are to the device. IPod touch is typically a really durable gadget. I read someone in the article that Apple declared after 400 discharge and charge cycles, the battery will merely be eighty percent of the original. It is only five percent of one cycle, if you use up only five percent of the battery before charging it.
 
It would be probably be about one to two years before it simply holds 80% of the original battery would be. Theoretically I you are really kind and nice to it I would say it would last for about three to five years. So that is pretty much up to you.

Well, the average lifespan of your iPod touch depends on how you use it and the settings you selected for it. There are times iPods fail normally because of a hardware problem which is unpredictable and can happen any time. But generally, if you use your iPod properly and of course with care, definitely it will last many years but as always, with the exception of the battery.

The average lifespan of the battery depends on its cycle count. A cycle count is equivalent to charge and discharge. A Li-Ion battery, for example, has an average cycle of around 700 to 800 cycles which normally lasts about two to three years. All rechargeable batteries have a limited lifespan. If you noticed that your iPod needs to be charged more and more frequently, this could mean that it can no longer hold sufficient charge.

According to Apple, a properly maintained iPod battery is designed to hold up to 80 percent (80%) of its original capacity at 400 complete charge cycles. If you wish your iPod to be serviced, please refer to Apple Service Answer Center – iPod.
