The Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation is expected to bring back the glory days of the iPod market whose heyday happened almost three years ago, when it is officially launched in September 2015 along with the latest iPhone from the American tech giant.
While the iPod Touch 5th Generation was not as impressive as its predecessors, considering that it had very little improvements, it still captured the fancy of music lovers when it was launched in 2012 since it was the time when interest on the MP3 media player and app were at its high.
The iPod Touch somewhat lost its luster when the new and larger iPhones started coming in featuring the capabilities of the music player, without the thinness and the weight. Since then, the iPod has played second fiddle to the iPhone.
Apparently, Apple is no longer content on seeing the iPod Touch 6th Generation playing second fiddle to the iPhones so it is making sure that when the latest iteration of its media player comes out, it shall be fully-loaded with features and state-of-the-art technology, notes Venture Capital Post.
More groundbreaking features
In addition to its water-resistant and Siri features, Apple is said to be putting a lot of firsts on the music device to ensure that it will have a captured market once it’s released this coming September
Accordingly, the iPod Touch 6th Generation shall feature Apple’s mobile payment system, the Apple Pay. The device shall be powered by an A9 microprocessor, which is way better than the chipset currently being used in the manufacture of the iPhone 6. The processor is said to be better and faster although at this point in time, the A9 microprocessor has yet to officially come out from production
The iPod Touch 6th Generation shall come out in two display size variants – a 4.7-inch screen size version and a 5.5-inch display size and both versions will apparently feature Retina display which means excellent resolutions.
Finally, the iPod Touch 6th Generation is reportedly coming out of the box with the iOS 9 already on it. Reports have it that the latest Apple mobile operating system is now on its final beta-testings and it is likely that it will be rolling out any time before September, giving the iPod Touch 6th Generation the perfect prelude.
The Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation shall come in six different colors including silver, pink, red, blue, space grey, and yellow. It will have 1GB of RAM but can be upgraded to as much as 128GB through a microSD card.
The Apple iPod Touch 6 will reportedly have a longer battery life, improved security features that include Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and shall sport an 8-megapixel iSight camera which shall also be waterproof just like the Apple Watch. It shall also be compatible with the iWatch.
The iPod Touch 6th Generation would have a retail price of anywhere from $250 to $300, depending on the variant. Apple has yet to confirm all these supposedly groundbreaking features, specifications, and price for the music device though.
