Four years later, Apple today announced a new iPod touch with headline features being a faster A10 Fusion chip and a new 256GB storage option.
The iPod touch was last refreshed in 2015 and did not support features like ARKit or Group FaceTime as the A8 processor was not powerful enough.
The Apple-designed A10 Fusion chip brings improved performance in games, and for the first time on iPod, immersive augmented reality (AR) experiences across gaming, education, web browsing, and Group FaceTime, making it easy to chat with family members, friends or colleagues simultaneously.
The specs include a 4-inch Retina display, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.2-megapixel front camera, same as in the previous generation of the device.
The iPod touch comes in three storage variants — 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB, available in six colours — space grey, white, gold, blue, pink and (PRODUCT)RED.
However, the new iPod touch comes in a new 256GB capacity, giving plenty of space to download music for offline listening through Apple Music or the iTunes Store.
The new iPod touch models are available to order starting today from apple.com and in the Apple Store app in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the UAE, UK and US.
