The iPod Touch is coming back better and cheaper than ever
The latest iPod Touch is a blend of old-school Apple goodness and some of the more modern tech found in more recent iPhones
The iPod will make a big use of ‘Apple Arcade’ the upcoming gaming subscription service from Apple
The ‘Touch’ is on sale starting at just $199, and considering you can trick your friends into thinking it’s an expensive iPhone, that’s a good deal
The iPod Touch has just got its first major revamp in four years, the new models are faster and more affordable than ever.
Apple announced this Tuesday that the iPod Touch is back, now with the same A10-Fusion chip found in iPhone 7s. The new iPod will have a focus on gaming and AR to go along with the launch of ‘Apple Arcade’.
Launching in autumn this year, ‘Apple Arcade’ is a gaming subscription service where subscribers get 100 new and exclusive games every month for a flat fee. The games will be made by studios such as Sega, Disney, Annapurna Interactive, and Boss. This new iPod is a clever choice for those who enjoy mobile gaming but don’t want to slow down their iPhones with a load of apps, considering the new iPod is twice as fast and has three times better graphics than the previous model, it all seems too good to be true.
The iPod Touch is a bit retro you could say, it uses the new elusive 3.5mm headphone jack and a tiny four-inch screen. Though it does have a lighting connector, an 8MP camera, iOS 12 and Siri.
The new model comes in space grey, white, gold, pink, blue or red. For $199, you can get it with 32GB. Upgrade to 128GB for $299 and 256GB for $399.
