Apple releases new iPod touch with A10 Fusion chip and 256 GB storage option
Apple has released a new iPod touch, featuring an A10 Fusion chip and 256 GB storage option.
Released quietly today within an update to Apple.com, the refresh is the first time Apple has updated the iPod touch in nearly four years.
Asides from the internal upgrades, the new iPod touch doesn’t feature any major changes. The device retains the same physical design of the previous generations, including a 4-inch Retina display, a home button without Touch ID, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a Lightning connector, and a single speaker and microphone.
The iPod touch starts at $199 (US) for the 32GB model, $299 (US) for the 128GB model and $399 (US) for the 256GB model. Six colors are available, including space gray, white, gold, blue, pink, and (PRODUCT)RED.
“We’re making the most affordable iOS device even better with performance that is twice as fast as before, Group FaceTime and augmented reality starting at just $199,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of Product Marketing. “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.”
Customers can order the device now on Apple.com or via the Apple Store app.
Apple will most likely stop providing software updates to the previous generation 2015-2018 iPod touch later this year when iOS 13 is publicly available.
