According to forecasts earlier this year, Apple has confirmed the launch of a new iPod touch, which has not happened since 2015. The device looks the same as the previous generation, featuring a four-inch screen, wide frame and a physical "home" button.
According to Apple, the new A10 Fusion processor will deliver up to twice as fast performance and graphics up to three times better than its predecessor. However, the main novelty is access, for the first time on an iPod, to the augmented reality experience.
In addition to the new chip, the new device presents for the first time a model of 256 GB, which will cost 469 euros. Also available on Apple's website are a 128GB version for 359 euros and a 32GB version with a price of 249 euros.
Greg Joswiak, Apple's vice president, believes that "the ultra-thin and lightweight design of iPod touch has always made it the ideal device to enjoy games, music and more wherever you go," adding that the company has made its equipment " with the most affordable price even better. "
Fall is the launch of the Apple Arcade gaming service, which will allow iPod touch users to access more than 100 innovative games without restrictions – online or offline, with no ads and no in-app purchases.
