Apple on May 28, 2019 introduced its first latest iPod model in 4 years, highlighting music and games as it continued to make a significance of serving up digital content.
This is a surprising move from Apple as the tech-giant’s iPod touch hasn’t been updated since 2015.
The new updated iPod touch comes with an A10 Fusion system-on-a-chip. Additionally, it looks pretty much like the old iPod touch with a four-inch display, a classic home button and various color options.
The new-generation iPod touch is essentially an iPhone without the phone calls developed for music and game lovers. It is available in more than two dozen countries at Apple’s online shop starting at $199.
“We’re making the most affordable iOS device even better with performance that is twice as fast as before, Group FaceTime and augmented reality,” said Apple VP of Product Marketing Greg Joswiak. He added, “The ultra-thin and lightweight design of iPod touch has always made it ideal for enjoying games, music and so much more wherever you go.”
The iPod touch advanced from the original iPod digital music player first launched by Apple in 2001.
The iPod touch has become popular with people, particularly parents of internet-coveting children, who wanted mobile devices for getting online without the cost of telecommunications services.
