It has been several years since Apple gave the iPod Touch a makeover. In 2019 the company plans to release the iPod Touch 7, and it includes some great features that previous generations of the music player did not have, according to Redmond Pie.

iPod Touch 7 Price

The iPod Touch 7 will come in several varieties, and the price is indicative of its storage size. The 32GB model will weigh in at a cool $199, making it the cheapest model available. The 128GB model is going to retail at just $299, in spite of having 4 times the storage space of the smaller version. The largest variant is the 256GB model, which is priced at $399. While these prices may seem a bit steep for music and audio book storage, keep in mind that even the smallest model is capable of holding thousands of your favorite songs. Listening to 32GB of music would take you around 400 hours.

Specs and Features

The iPod Touch 7 will be a compact device that measures 4.86 inches tall by 2.31 inches wide. It is also fairly slim, measuring just less than 1/4 of an inch thick. Roughly the size of a small smartphone, it will fit neatly into a pocket or purse. Don’t let its size fool you though, it is packed with features. The device will have a 4 inch retina display with multi touch IPS technology. The display packs a sharp 1136×640 resolution with 336ppi density. Oh, and did we mention that it will also play video files, giving you the ability to grab your favorite shows or movies and watch them in high definition on the go?

The iPod Touch 7 will be powered by the A10 Fusion chip, giving it plenty of processing power to display video and play music files, as well as store photos from the awesome camera setup. The 8MP camera features autofocus, a five element lens, hybrid IR filter, and backside illumination. Add in the auto image stabilization, HDR for photos, exposure control, Panorama settings, and a burst mode, and you have a powerful little device.

With the ability to connect to Wi-Fi and stream audio and video you no longer have to be content with storing your shows and song locally. The iPod Touch 7 will allow you to stream directly from the Internet so you can keep up with your favorite shows. Thanks to Siri being integrated into iOS12 with the device you can control it with your voice, making it even more versatile and easy to use.

Hardware

The iPod Touch 7 will have only 4 buttons – power button, volume up and down, and home. Everything else will be controlled through the retina display screen, making it easy to choose what you want to do with the device. It will support a 3.5mm headphone jack and has a built in microphone and speaker as well. It will contain lithium-ion battery that provides up to 40 hours of audio playback time and 8 hours of video playback time. It will also have a gyro system to keep the screen oriented in the right position as you rotate the device. All in all, this device is pretty incredible for its size and price range.
