The new 7th-generation iPod touch this 2019 may not be under everyone's expectations, but Apple seems to be all that determined to resuscitate its almost long-forgotten product lineups. This notion is very much evident in the Philippines as the company's local arm has just let us glimpsed on how its variants will cost at the time of their official launch.
As per Apple's local website, the iPod touch 2019 carries a price tag of PHP 14,990 for its base 32GB variant. The 128GB edition, on the other hand, is set to be priced at PHP 21,490 while the top-tiered 256GB will retail for PHP 27,990. Apple is yet to reveal the availability of these devices.
iPod touch 2019 Features
The latest generation iPod touch, despite of its being released years after its predecessor was launched, didn't get much of that makeover it certainly deserves. But don't let that spoil your anticipation as the device receives a CPU spec-bump, right alongside the doubling of its RAM offering – both of which are vital if you want to thrive in today's mobile needs.
The new iPod touch 2019 is now equipped with a more powerful A10 Fusion processor. This is the same chipset that powers the iPhone 7. As it is, this new hardware upgrade allows its users to enjoy Augmented Reality (AR) apps, besides the sought-after Group FaceTime capability; the latter is noted to be the first for the series.
The iPod touch 2019 also gets a new 256GB flash storage tier, which is another first for the iPod series. Ultimately, this offering bests the 160GB variant which was offered on the iPod classic years ago.
The rest of the iPod touch 2019's specifications remain essentially the same. It still features a 4-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 1,136 x 640 pixels and larger-than-life bezels on top and bottom. A home button, which is surprisingly not toting around a Touch ID feature, also made a comeback.
In the camera department, the iPod touch 2019 boasts of an 8MP main camera module and a 1.2MP front-facing snapper for your selfie needs.
The re-emergence of the latest generation iPod touch may seem to escape logic for most Apple fans globally, but with the Apple Arcade subscription service's launch becoming more imminent by the day, we won't be surprised if Apple would finally re-introduce this age-old product line as its new handheld gaming series.
