Mid July Apple has quietly launched the iPod touch 6th generation. I am a great fan of the Apple’s iPod touch for numerous reasons: cheapest iOS device, light, powerful and occasionally when you feel like taking a break from phone calls and messages from work yet you still want to have the iPhone experience – iPod touch is the answer! I have an iPod touch since 2011 and this 6th generation iPod touch (after nearly 4 years of waiting) is one of the best and most powerful iPod touch yet!
#1: A8 Chip
iPod touch features Apple designed A8 chip built on 64-bit architecture. This is the same chip used in iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. In other word, this iPod touch is 10x faster than iPod touch 5 and definitely faster than iPhone 5c and iPhone 5S. A8 chip has great battery life that gives you up t0 40 hours of music and 8 hours of video playback.
#2: 8MP iSight Camera
iPod touch 6 features an improved 8MP iSight camera that can be found in iPhone 5c, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air 2. I am glad Apple has listened to customer feedback and improved the camera on the iPod touch. I love carrying an iPod touch for short holiday. It is light and easy to carry around. With the 8MP iSight camera, I cannot wait to shoot lots of beautiful photos on my next holiday. The new iSight camera comes with new features such as 120-fps slow motion video, burst mode, time lapse video and high resolution camera.
Even the front facing camera has been improved too! The new improved FaceTime HD camera allows you to take better selfie and of course when you are having a FaceTime call with your loved ones, everything seem sharper and clearer suddenly, especially on the beautiful 4 inch retina display.
#3: Improved Wireless
The new iPod touch 6 includes the latest wireless technology. When you are connected to a WiFi network, you can make FaceTime calls, send messages, post photos, and download your favourite games and music. With new support for 802.11ac, you will experience up to three times faster WiFi than with 802.11n. iPod touch also supports Bluetooth 4.1 technology, so you can connect a pair of headphones for listening to your favourite tunes, or a game controller for racking up a new high score.
