Let’s take a detailed look at what’s inside.
Apple iPod Touch 6th Gen boasts an elegant and streamlined designed. At just 6.1mm thick, iPod Touch slides into your pocket without splitting at the seams. The clean, clutter-free and ergonomic design weighs only 88g. It is so feather-light, you wouldn’t even feel it’s there. Enjoy your running, jogging and workout routine without your music player weighing you down. The 4-inches touchscreen has a finger-print resistant coating which is again a plus when you’re using it during exertive activities or handing it over to the kids. The luxurious back has a smooth aluminium finish and houses a slightly-risen camera at the top-left corner. The volume key, on/off button, headphone jack and built-in speakers all occupy their customary spots. The only quandary about the design is, that it’s made to look like a phone and most people would want it as an additional device. Now, who wants to handle and take care of two phones at a time? Again, it narrows down to the user’s personal choice.
Since it’s a media player, the biggest and most noteworthy feature of the Apple iPod Touch is the storage. With a storage capacity of up to 256GB, the Touch has ample room for all your music. You can stream 60 million songs with your Apple Music subscription and download as many as you like. It is fitted with the powerful A8 Fusion Chip for smoother processing, just like iPhone 6. While the A8 processor facilitates faster graphics performance whether you’re playing games, browsing the web or streaming high-definition videos, the M8 motion co-processor gives accurate fitness tracking.
Although primarily a music player, it still is one of its many feats. In addition to Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi, Siri, Maps, AirPlay and Safari Internet browser, the Touch houses multiple applications including iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Apple Music and more. Not to forget iMessage and FaceTime. The battery life is also incredibly impressive with a charge lasting up to 40 hours of music playback and 8 hours of video playing.
The 8-megapixel rear camera is a real treat for the snappers. You can take photos when you’re on the move with the fast autofocus mode that allows you to take the shot quickly. The photos are crisp, the details are sharp, colours are bold and even the far-off writings are readable. It also comes with 120fps slow-mo recording mode, time lapse, panorama and burst features. The wide array of filters are fun to apply effects on photos. The front FaceTime HD camera is 1.2MP and might not be as impressive but it does claim to detect face faster and more accurately now.
Screen & Sound
The 4-inches Retina display boasts 1136 x 640 resolution and 326ppi. Expect vibrant, popping colours and faster, fluid motion. While having fun with more than a 100 games in Apple Arcade, the Touch’s screen offers you an immersive experience. Apple iPod Touch also supports AR games for you to have fun with virtual monsters and battles with your friends. The sound quality is also crisp and enjoyable, as long as you use the Apple EarPods because the built-in speakers are not as great and the sound may be shrill.
Considering all its fun features, it’s safe to say that Apple iPod Touch would be a fairly impressive accessory to have. Providing seamless access to multiple apps and the web, it is so much more than a mere MP3 Player. With its stylish build, fast processing and huge storage capacity, it is the best player out there.
