Apple just announced its latest addition to the I-Pod range, it is the 7th generation I-Pod touch, although it looks a lot like its predecessor, the 6th generation I-Pod touch and comes in the same colours, it is a totally different device inside. It comes with a better faster processing system, improved graphical capabilities and a better display. Apple has also added features like Face time and other apps which work using Augmented reality which will make the overall experience way better than the previous versions.
Everything you need to know
Apple’s newest addition to the I-Pod range is powered by the A-10 fusion system which is almost twice as fast as the previous A-8 system featured by the i-Pod 6 touch. Also the storage capabilities have been improved to 256 Gb of internal storage which is a huge step ahead from the 128 Gb storage offered by the I-Pod 6.
Sorry to disappoint everyone who was hoping for a bigger screen, sadly the new I-Pod 7 does not have a bigger screen, but on the bright side it does sport a better, high resolution display which has a better pixel ratio than the previous one had. Also the frame rate capabilities have been greatly improved which calls for a smooth and seamless viewing experience that has never been seen before on an I-Pod. The seventh-generation iPod touch features the same four-inch Retina display of the previous model.
The new and improved A-10 processing chip offer a higher graphic performance than the previous model. It is said that the graphic performance is up to three times faster than all models till now and is perfect for all games available on the apple’s app store. All in all there is no question that the newest addition to the I-Pod franchise will be a flagship model based on its processing and graphical capabilities, the only thing left to see is the price at which the device will be released, the price will dictate the reach this device gets in the community.
Sadly the developers have decided to not change anything with the camerathe seventh-generation iPod touch is a mix of old and new, and the camera is decidedly part of the “old” contingent. It’s still an 8MP camera with an f/2.4 aperture. It does support iOS 12’s auto HDR feature.
When can I get the new iPod touch?
You can order the new iPod touch right now from Apple.com or through the Apple Store app on your iPhone or iPad. It should be expected in Apple Stores later this week.
