Talk about a blast from the past.May 28, 2019
In a world where streaming giants such as Spotify and Apple Music are dominating the game, Apple is determined not to let us forget where we came from. Long gone are the days of Limewire and scouring the internet for album art you could upload onto your iPod.
Now, Apple has revived our nostalgia with the announcement of its first iPod Touch since 2015.
Check out all the details on the latest product upgrade below!
The seventh generation iPod Touch will have an A10 Fusion Chip (same as an iPhone 7) and will run “twice as fast” as the previous model, according to Apple.
The recently unveiled Touch is said to have an additional storage option of 256GB for $399.
Aside from the updated Fusion Chip and increased storage option, the rest of the iPod Touch will remain unchanged. This means it will continue to boast a 4-inch display, home button, camera and more.
While the chip parallels only to that of the iPhone 7, it will allow for more features. This includes Group Facetime, which was previously unavailable on the Touch.
The seventh generation Touch is now available for purchase via the company’s website. It starts at $199 for the 32GB model, $299 for the 128GB model and $399 for the recently announced 256GB option.
The first iPod Touch made its debut in 2007, changing the game for music listeners everywhere. In 2014, Apple announced the retirement of the iPod Classic as the streaming game took over the industry.
