Apple Announces iPod Touch 6th Generation


Earlier today, Apple took everyone by surprise and announced the new 6th generation iPod Touch. They also unveiled new colors for the iPod Shuffle and iPod Nano, but the internal components of both of those devices stayed the same. The new iPod Touch also comes in a variety of different colors, but more importantly, Apple has decided to upgrade the internal components of the iPod Touch. It is now basically equivalent to the iPhone 6 in terms of power.

The last time the iPod Touch was revamped was nearly 3 years ago, so as you can already tell, many Apple fanatics were already anticipating this news. The iPod Touch 6th generation has improved a lot over the iPod Touch 5th generation. Some of the biggest changes would have to be the new 64-bit A8 processor, which is a huge improvement over the now-outdated A5 processor that powered the 5th generation iPod Touch. The new revamp also comes with a 8 megapixel rear facing camera compared to the 5 megapixel camera we saw in the 5th generation iPod Touch. Other changes include the integration of the M chip, which is basically the motion tracking chip used for fitness apps and a stronger WiFi receiver. The size of the screen is still 4 inches, and the overall design and look of the iPod generally remained the same.

The iPod Touch 6th generation will be available to purchase starting today. The base model with cost you $199 with 16GB of storage space. Three other models are also available: the 32GB edition coming in at $249, 64GB edition for $299 and finally, the 128GB edition, which is only available through the Apple Store, coming in at $399. The new iPod will also come in the following colors: space gray, silver, pink, gold, blue, and much like the 5th generation iPod Touch, an exclusive red color only available through the Apple Store.
