    The back of my iPod is starting to get rusty. It does have a case. I do not really know what type my iPod is, I just know its an old one.. I just need help figuring out why its rusty!

    Because it's metal, any moisture that gets between the case and the iPod is just going to sit and oxidize on the iPod.

    If you live close to saltwater that might also be a contributor to the rust. Just being around the salt spray, humidity, and general environment in coastal areas can tarnish.

    Your iPod is getting rusty becuase it is a metal and moisture will affect the metal of the iPod.
