ARE THE iPod 5 and 6 the same size?

So yes, cases should fit. They're exactly thesamesize. I think the only difference is that I don't recallseeingthe 'apple loop' mentioned for the 6, but I may havejustmissed it. So there may be a hole in your 5th gen casesthatthere's no need to be for the 6th gencases.
