Apple is working on a new iPod Touch, the latest in the brand’s line of multimedia players with a touch screen for easy operation and an iOS interface for app support. The new iPod will be the 8th generation product in the iPod Touch line following the iPod Touch 7th gen that was launched in May 2019. The iPod Touch 7th Gen is still available to purchase starting at Rs 18,900 for the base model.
The new report comes from MacRumors contributor Steve Moser, revealing new details about the device. Moser’s reported that the new device will be redesigned to look like the iPhone 12, which means squared edges and a variety of colour options. The renders also show the upcoming iPod touch could feature a single-camera setup similar to past releases.
While we’re playing the guessing game, perhaps we can expect the new iPod touch to feature 64GB of storage as its base option and an A14 Bionic chip, which was introduced with the iPhone 12 series. We would anticipate Apple to use older specs to keep the cost of the new iPod touch down; the current model is available for $199, which gets you 32GB of storage and an A10 Fusion chip. With the news of Apple Music getting lossless audio support, and iPod Touch with a 3.5mm headphone jack, paired with a good DAC (digital-to-analogue converter) could give a superb listening experience.
