Apple today launched the successor to the 6th-gen iPod Touch introduced in July 2015. With the 2019 iPod Touch, the company is bringing several new software features to iPod Touch lineup. On the design front, the new iPod Touch looks exactly the same as its predecessor. However, it now comes several color options including Space Gray, Gold, Silver, Pink, Blue, and (Product) RED. On the front, we will be looking at the same 4-inch Retina display with 1136 by 640 pixels resolution. We can clearly notice the thick bezels all around the display.
There is also a physical home button beneath the display. Under the hood, the 2019 iPod Touch packs Apple A10 Fusion chip. It is the same processor which also powers the Apple iPhone 7 launched in 2016. While it’s not the latest Apple chip, the company says it will offer 2x better performance than its predecessor. With the Apple A10 Fusion chip, the latest iPod Touch supports Group FaceTime and AR Experiences. It might also help in driving more subscriptions for the upcoming ‘Apple Arcade’ gaming service.
In the camera department, there is an 8MP camera on the rear with f/2.4 aperture and 1.2MP FaceTime HD Camera on the front with f/2.2 aperture. To all those users who are missing the 3.5mm audio jack on their newer iPhones, it is present on the new iPod Touch. The 32GB and 128GB storage variants of the new iPod Touch will be costing Rs 18,900 (USD 199 in the US) and Rs 28,900 (USD 299 in the US) respectively. This time, the company newly introduced the 256GB storage option which costs Rs 38,900 (USD 399 in the US). As of now, there is no mention of the availability date for the India market.
