Apple has released a brand new version of the iPod touch. The new iPod touch has a number of significant inner improvements, while the appearance has remained virtually the same. The iPod touch 7th generation can now be ordered immediately in the online Apple Store from € 229. What’s new in this 7th generation, also called the iPod touch 2019?
The iPod touch of the 7th generation is the successor of the 2015 model, of which in 2017 only a modified version with more storage appeared. The new seventh generation iPod touch is especially faster and offers more storage. There have been rumors for some time that Apple was planning to release a small update for the iPod touch, and now this update is available.
The design of the iPod touch 7th generation has remained unchanged from the previous model. It is still a thin and compact media player with a 4-inch screen. The model also has just a home button, without Touch ID. The back is made of aluminum, just like the previous model. The finish is therefore identical with the 2015 model.

The iPod touch seventh generation has a 64-bit A10 Fusion chip. This is the same chip as in the iPad 2018 and in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. This fast chip is suitable for most new applications, such as ARKit. It is not the very latest chip, but that allows Apple to keep the price lower. This A10 chip is more than enough for users of an iPod touch. In addition, there is also an M10 processor with which all movements are registered. With the new chip you can also use FaceTime groups.
The camera remained unchanged. The outer camera still has an 8-megapixel lens with an aperture of ƒ/2.4. The inner camera also retains the same 1.2-megapixel lens with ƒ/2.2 aperture. The new model also has Bluetooth 4.1, just like the previous model. The iPod touch naturally works together with the AirPods and similar AirPods alternatives. You can also choose from 32 GB, 128 GB and the new 256 GB storage for the use of apps, music and more.
In terms of colors, Apple has taken everything from the cupboard. The iPod touch 7th generation is available in space gray, gold, silver, blue, pink and red. Those are the same colors as the previous model.
