Cupertino based technology giant Apple has done something that nobody was expecting it to. The company has refreshed its iPod Touch after almost four years. The new iPod Touch is powered by Apple’s A10 Fusion chip, which is the same processor that is found in iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and even the 2018 iPad. The technology giant has also introduced a 256GB variant of its iPod Touch with the new refreshed version.
We should mention that iPod Touch was refreshed last in July 2015, and its last version was launched along with iPod shuffle and iPod nano. The previous version of iPod Touch was powered by the Apple A8 chip, which is also present in the iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. According to the company, the new version’s CPU works twice as fast as the predecessor’s and offers three times better graphics.
iPod Touch price in India
The iPod Touch is available in three storage variants in India – 32GB variant, 128GB model and 256GB version. While the base model costs Rs 18,900, the 128GB storage model is priced at Rs 28,900, and the most high-end version bears a price tag of Rs 38,900. We should mention that the prices of the 32GB and 128GB storage variants in India have gone up by Rs 1,900 and Rs 3,600 respectively.
The newly launched iPod Touch comes in six colour options — Space Grey, White, Gold, Blue, Pink, and (PRODUCT)RED. It will be available for purchase in India starting early next month, however, as of now, no clear date has been specified.
iPod Touch features
The new iPod Touch comes with support for Group FaceTime video calls and ARKit, which are both features that were not present on its predecessor, so it’s not surprising to see that Apple is highlighting these so much. We should point out that the iPod Touch features a 4-inch display, which is the same size as the iPhone SE.
As we mentioned earlier, the refreshed iPod Touch comes with Apple’s A10 Fusion chip. Apart from this, most other specifications and features of the device remain the same as its predecessor. The iPod Touch comes with a 1.2MP front-facing camera and an 8MP rear camera.
The refreshed version of the iPod Touch is 6.1mm thin and at 88 grams, it is the lightest ever iOS device yet. The battery life of the iPod Touch is said to be up to 40 hours for music playback and up to 8 hours for video playback.
