Apple is still not done with iPods and new reports are claiming that the new generation of iPod touch is underway and it could implement newer technology than the previous models. iPods have been the most fascinating and popular product among the younger audience and it seems like the company will target them with these new iPods.
There could also be a few changes with hardware on board for charging, similar to iPhones with USB-C connectivity which previously used to be lightning ports. The current set of iPod touch has the older A8 processor, an 8MP camera, and 4-inch display. Apple would likely boost these specification with the A12 Bionic Chip and Face ID in the 7th Gen iPod Touch and give something special for the iPod fans who have been waiting for an upgraded version from the past 4 years.
The iPod Touch comes with a wide display just like the iPhones and includes most of the features such as WiFi connectivity and long lasting battery, only that you cannot make phone calls as there is no cellular connectivity. The device is essentially for music listeners and offers a few more things to do like watching videos, playing games and using other Apps that can run over WiFi.
Gizmodo explains how Apple is looking to gain more traction with the iPod Touch:
According to Apple supply chain watchers Macotakara, the current iPod Touch (which was last overhauled in 2015) could see a revamp as Apple looks to funnel more people into things like Apple Music and iTunes in order to help boost revenue from the company’s “Services” division.
