Ipod new generation

Ipod new generation DEFAULT


Apple took us all by surprise when it announced the iPod touch 7, the first upgrade to its portable music and video player since 2015. 

With “enhancements to power, capability, and communication”, the updated iPod touch is fully geared towards gaming, with the release coming just in time for the launch of Apple's new gaming service, Apple Arcade

But is the new iPod still a worthy music player like its predecessor? We spent a bit of time getting to grips with the touch to find out. 

[Update: Apparently, there's a new iPod model on the way this year. That's according to MacRumors contributor @SteveMoser and tipster @AppleLe257 on Twitter, although they're keen to label this as a 'rumor' rather than a 'leak' – so it sounds like it's something that's been heard in passing from inside sources, rather than something there is hard evidence for.

There are a couple of reasons we're inclined to believe it: number one, Apple's recent announcement of a lossless upgrade for Apple Music, and number two, it's the 20th anniversary of the original iPod this year.]

Price and availability

The new iPod touch (7th generation) is available to buy now, with the price varying depending on how much storage you opt for.

At the bottom of the scale is the 32GB model, which costs $199 / £199 / AU$299 / AED 849, with the price rising to $299 / £299 / AU$499 / AED 1,269 for the 128GB model.

The most expensive option is the  $399 / £399 / AU$599 / AED 1,689 256GB model, which is the version we tested for this review.


In terms of design, the new iPod touch looks identical to its predecessor, with a four-inch display and a sleek, lightweight build. We tested the blue version, but the music and video player is also available in space gray, white, gold, pink, and red.

At the bottom of the iPod touch you’ll find the home button; annoyingly, however, it doesn’t feature Apple’s Touch ID technology, which was introduced way back in 2013 with the iPhone 5S

This means you have to remember a six-digit passcode to unlock the iPod, which might not be ideal for younger users who could struggle to remember a passcode – although parents who want to limit children’s usage of their device might find this useful.

As with pre-iPhone X iPhone models, the on/off button is situated on the top of the iPod, while you’ll find the volume buttons on the left-hand side of the display. There are also front- and rear-facing cameras – more on those later. 

The bottom edge of the iPod touch houses a built-in speaker, Lightning port, and, puzzlingly, a 3.5mm headphone jack – Apple stopped including headphone jacks on its smartphones a long time ago in favor of its own multi-purpose Lightning port, with the last jack-friendly models, the iPhone 6S and iPhone SE, being discontinued in 2018.

We’ve speculated as to why Apple would include a headphone jack on the new iPod, with possible explanations ranging from the superior audio quality provided by wired headphones to the theory that Apple is trying to appeal to children who may find wireless headphones fiddly and annoying to use. 

Reunited with the 3.5mm headphone jack, we’re reminded of how convenient it is to use if you have regular wired headphones to hand – which you will do, as the iPod touch comes with a pair of Apple’s infamous EarPods, as well as a Lightning cable for charging. 

That said, we realized that we hadn’t really missed the headphone jack as much as we thought we would. True wireless earbuds,Bluetooth earbuds, and wireless headphones are getting better all the time, and there are plenty of Lightning-enabled cans on the market if you still prefer a wired connection. 

At just 88g, the new iPod touch feels incredibly light, while its 4-inch display means it’s easy to hold it and navigate the touchscreen with one hand, making it accessible for kids as well as adults. 

While the display isn’t the most advanced we’ve seen from Apple (it’s the same resolution as 2013’s iPhone 5, in fact), we found the 326ppi LED Retina display bright, clear, and attractive. 

The 1136 x 640 pixel display is definitely a step down from the color-accurate OLED display utilized by the iPhone X, but it’s worth remembering that the cheapest new iPod touch model is only a fifth of the price of Apple’s latest smartphone.

Whether you think that’s a fair trade-off largely depends on how much you care about screen resolution – Steve Jobs originally gave the Retina Display its name due to the fact it's meant to be so high-res that it's actually more than the human eye can cope with. Take from that what you will. 

Operating system

The new iPod touch runs iOS 12, Apple’s latest operating system, which brings with it group FaceTime for up to 32 users, Screen Time, and 70 new emojis compared to the previous version, iOS 11. 

This isn’t unique to the new iPod touch however, as the 6th-gen model also supports iOS 12. iOS 12.3.1 is the latest stable version of the mobile operating system that’s available to iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad users alike. 

The 7th-gen iPod touch therefore comes with pretty much all the apps you’d expect to find on one of the latest iPhones, except for Phone of course – essentially, it can do everything an iPhone can, except for making calls or accessing the internet over a mobile network; you can, for example use messaging apps such as WhatsApp or iMessenger over Wi-Fi. 

Battery life

Apple says the battery life of the iPod touch (7th generation) is up to 40 hours, and is good for up to eight hours of video playback. 

Moderate use over a few days, including music playback and casual gaming, didn’t deplete the battery too drastically, although playing demanding games like PUBG (Player Unknown Battlegrounds), and streaming video at full brightness, predictably drained the battery faster than using more basic apps.

Sound performance

We decided to test the iPod 7’s audio performance using the Apple EarPods that are included in the box, and we were pleasantly surprised by how well they handled our music.

Streaming via Apple Music, we listened to Dutch Uncles’ Oh Yeah. We were impressed by the new iPod touch’s lively and detailed rendering of the track, with tight bass notes and precise percussive hits.

Cat Rider by Little Dragon had a similarly precise feel, with swirling, smoky synths accentuated by snappy trap beats and subby bass lines. Vocals sounded smooth and clear, from the crystalline high notes right down to the wavering lows. 

Having reached its 7th generation, the iPod touch finally supports the Hi-Res Audio codec FLAC, as well as Apple Lossless, giving you more options than ever when it comes to accessing audiophile-quality music.

Using a Hi-Res Audio playback app for iOS called Vox, we listened to Mozart’s Requiem in D Minor. The strings had a warm and natural quality, while soprano vocal duets soared sweetly above the mix without ever sounding harsh. 

There’s hardly any point in listening to Hi-Res Audio with Apple’s EarPods, however; they just can’t do the music justice. So we donned a set of Master and Dynamic MW65 Active Noise-Canceling headphones to listen to Foals’ Spanish Sahara, and we were struck by how accurate the gently strummed guitar and soft vocals sounded. 

The headphones you use with the iPod touch will have a huge impact on how good your music sounds; a pair of audiophile over-ear headphones will always outperform the cheap in-ears you bought from the gas station. 

That’s not to say the EarPods sound terrible; for casual listening they’re convenient, easy to use, and won’t break the bank if you need to replace them in the future. They’re popular for a reason. 

We also tested out the inbuilt speaker at the bottom of the iPod touch, and it packs quite a punch despite its size. It won’t do for listening to your Hi-Res music, but if just want a little background music for your gaming sessions and can’t be bothered to dig your headphones out, it works just fine.


With Apple’s A10 Fusion chip built in, the new iPod touch is optimized for gaming, including what Apple calls, "immersive augmented reality (AR) experiences".

The release of the new iPod touch has also come just in time for the launch of the company's new gaming service, Apple Arcade, (Apple says it’s coming “this fall” so between September and November), meaning that gaming is truly at its heart.

To put the iPod touch’s AR capabilities to the test, we downloaded AR Dragon from the App Store. The game prompts you to hatch an egg, from which emerges a cute baby dragon that can interact with the real world through the magic of AR.

As you look ‘through’ your screen via the Camera app, you can see your dragon interacting with the objects in your surroundings. We found the game loaded quickly; something that will appeal to impatient younger users who want to see their dragon in action as fast as possible. 

We also tested the 7th-gen iPod touch on something more simple: Whale Trail from ustwo Games is a colorful endless flyer, and it looked fantastic on the iPod touch’s backlit LED display, and we didn’t experience any latency issues.

However, to really put the iPod touch through its paces we had to give it something a little more complex to process. 

Enter PUBG. A faithful port of the PC battle royale phenomenon, the mobile version of PUBG is known for demanding a lot from the devices it’s played on in terms of processor speeds, GPU (graphics processing unit) performance, and RAM capacity.

According to Ars Technica, the A10 Fusion chip’s built-in GPU delivers “about 56% the performance of the A12”, the chip that’s used in the latest iPhones, but we didn’t experience any latency issues while playing this rather complex game, and we found the graphics ran smoothly, with the iPod touch’s bright and sharp display handling the realistic military-style graphics of PUBG just as well as the colorful, cartoonish graphics of Whale Trail.

Plus, with double the RAM of its predecessor (2GB to be exact), the 7th-gen iPod touch has a lot more memory to run the increasingly complex titles available to mobile gamers. 


One of the applications that comes built-in is the Camera app. The camera hardware itself is exactly the same as its predecessor’s: on the front of the iPod touch is a 1.2MP FaceTime HD camera, while the rear sports a more advanced 8MP camera that supports autofocus, auto image stabilization and a f/2.4 aperture.

Modern luxuries like 4K video recording and Portrait Mode are nowhere to be found on the iPod touch, which does feel like a step backwards.

In fact, compared to even our relatively old iPhone SE, the camera is disappointing – photos just aren’t as sharp or detailed, and the hardware hasn’t improved over the previous iPod touch.

Is the iPod touch 7 okay to use for FaceTime or taking basic snaps? Sure. Will you win any photography competitions using it? Probably not. 

Final verdict

Overall, we were impressed by the iPod touch (7th generation). For the number of apps you get with iOS 12, it feels like good value for money – especially when you compare it to the cost of an iPhone.

In terms of design, we like the fact that Apple has stuck to the 4-inch display of old, while the inclusion of the 3.5mm jack will be a welcome addition for anyone who loathes Apple’s Lightning port. Older isn’t always better though, as proven by the dated camera and the lack of Touch or Face ID. 

Playing music on the iPod touch is seamless, and it generally sounds great, with the new support for FLAC likely to appeal to audiophiles.

Unlike with its predecessors, however, Apple has emphasized the gaming capabilities of the new iPod touch over its music playback capabilities – and it handles games superbly. Whether we were playing simple side-scrollers or complex battle royale games, we didn’t experience any latency issues, and the A10 Fusion chip means AR titles work equally well. 

This will put Apple in good stead when it comes to releasing Apple Arcade, its upcoming games streaming service – after all, the iPod touch will be the cheapest way to get access to it for those who don’t already have an iPhone. 

Which brings us to the question of who’s going to buy the 7th-gen iPod touch. Who, after all, would want what is essentially an iPhone that can’t make calls? Well, without the capacity for mobile data, parents don’t have to worry about kids downloading games over a mobile network and gobbling up expensive data plans with a few swipes, and limiting Wi-Fi access is much easier.

Plus, for parents concerned about exposing their kids to the potential hazards of the online world, the iPod touch could represent an attractive middle ground between regular ‘dumb’ phones and a fully connected iPhone. 

With access to social media apps and messaging services like Apple’s iMessage and WhatsApp, you won’t exactly be cut off from the world if you use the new iPod touch as your primary device. Of course, you won’t be contactable away from a Wi-Fi network, but in today’s constantly connected age many are likely to feel that’s no bad thing.

List of iOS devices

The iPod Touch (stylized and marketed as iPod touch) is a line of iOS-based mobile devices designed and marketed by Apple Inc. with a touchscreen-controlleduser interface. As with other iPod models, it can be used as a music player and a handheld gaming device, but it can also be used as a digital camera, a web browser and for messaging.[7] It is similar in design to the iPhone, but it connects to the Internet only through Wi-Fi and does not use cellular network data, and so is not a smartphone.

The iPod Touch was introduced in 2007; some 100 million iPod Touch units were sold by May 2013.[2] The current iPod Touch, released on May 28, 2019, is the seventh-generation model.

iPod Touch models are sold by storage space and color; all models of the same generation typically offer identical features, performance, and operating system upgrades. An exception was the fifth generation, in which the low-end (16 GB)[a] model was initially sold without a rear-facing camera and in a single color.[8]

The iPod Touch has been the only product in Apple's iPod product line since the discontinuation of the iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle on July 27, 2017, after which Apple revised the storage and pricing for the iPod Touch with 32 and 128 GB of storage.[9]



Main article: iOS

The iPod Touch runs Apple's Unix-based iOS operating system used on the iPhone, and includes bundled software to browse the Internet, view maps, send and receive email, view media. Users type on a virtual keyboard displayed on the screen. Apple operates online stores, allowing users to buy and directly download music, videos and third-party software. From launch, the iPod Touch was described by journalists as an "iPhone without the phone",[10] and each iPod Touch model to date has been introduced with the same release of iOS as the contemporary iPhone model.

In June 2011, iOS 5, the fifth major release of iOS software, was announced at Apple's WWDC 2011, which added notification, messaging and reminder features.[11] Apple limited some features, most notably the voice control system Siri, to the iPhone.[12]iOS 6, which was released on September 19, 2012 for the fourth and fifth generation iPod Touch models, contains 200 new features including Passbook, Facebook integration and Apple Maps. The fifth generation iPod Touch gained the ability to take panoramic photos, a feature shared with the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5.[13]

On June 8, 2015, it was announced at the WWDC that the iPod Touch fifth generation would support iOS 9, along with other A5 Chip devices. This makes the iPod Touch fifth generation the first iPod Touch to support four major versions of iOS.

Early iOS updates prior to iOS 4 have been paid for owners of supported iPod Touch models. Apple received criticism for this decision and for excluding certain features from the iPod Touch software that the iPhone included.[14][15] Apple's position was that they could add features for free to the iPhone because the revenue from it is accounted for on a subscription basis under accounting rules, rather than as a one time payment (as iPhones were often sold with a carrier contract).[16] At WWDC in June 2010, as of iOS 4, Steve Jobs announced that Apple had "found a way" to make subsequent OS upgrades available free to iPod Touch owners.

Setup and synchronization[edit]

iPod Touch units running iOS 4 or earlier require a Mac or PC to be set up for the first time. Downloading apps or media from the iTunes Store and App Store does not require a computer, though media not purchased through the iTunes Store still has to be added through a computer.

New iPods bought after October 12, 2011 have iOS 5.0 or later preloaded, and can be set up wirelessly,[17] without the need of a PC or Mac.

Purchasing content[edit]

To purchase content on the iPod Touch, the user must create an Apple ID or have an existing account. With this account one may download music and videos from the iTunes Store, apps from the App Store, or books from the Apple Books Store. An Apple ID account created without a credit card can be used to get free content, and gift cards can be used to pay for apps instead of using a credit card.

Third-party applications[edit]

The only official way to obtain third-party applications for the iPod Touch is through Apple's App Store, which is a branch of iTunes Store. The App Store application, available in all versions of iOS from 2.0 onwards, allows users to browse and download applications from a single online repository (hosted by Apple) with the iTunes Store.

Sideloading apps outside the App Store is done through the Xcode application, and is intended for developers and enterprises, though tools for sideloading outside of Xcode exist, and are mainly used for applications not allowed in the App Store.

Design and hardware[edit]

The iPod Touch is generally similar to the iPhone models prior to the iPhone X (excluding the second generation iPhone SE). Compared to a same-generation iPhone, an iPod Touch is thinner, lighter and less expensive, while lacking some hardware and software features. Steve Jobs once referred to the iPod Touch as "training wheels for the iPhone".[18]

All iPod Touch models lack biometric authentication, 3D Touch, NFC, GPS, an earpiece speaker and a noise-cancelling microphone. Depending on the generation, the iPod Touch may have a smaller or otherwise inferior display and camera(s). Newer models (5th, 6th, and 7th generation) lack the ambient light sensor that makes automatic brightness available. The first generation iPod Touch lacks a built-in speaker, and the first, second, and third generation iPod Touch lack a microphone, a camera, and a flash. Starting with the 4th generation iPod Touch, a camera and microphone were added, and starting with the 5th generation iPod Touch, an LED flash was added.

The iPod Touch has no cellular modem, and therefore cannot directly make phone calls on the public switched telephone network. However, it can make VoIP calls such as FaceTime, and send iMessages to other iPhones, Macs, iPads, and iPod Touch models with an Apple ID. The 5th generation iPod Touch and later can forward and receive standard phone calls through a separate iPhone (a feature introduced in iOS 8), with the Wi-Fi Calling feature. The two devices must be linked to the same Apple ID, and the iPhone's carrier must support this feature.[19]


Main articles: Dock connector § Apple 30-pin dock connector, and Lightning (connector)

Apple Lightning connector

The iPod Touch can communicate with a computer through Wi-Fi or USB using a cable and a dock connector.

iPod models released before 2012 feature a 30-pin dock connector (known colloquially as the iPod dock connector), which carried analog signals.

The fifth, sixth, and seventh generations of the iPod Touch feature a new digital dock connector, called Lightning, which was introduced alongside the iPhone 5, fourth generation iPad and first generation iPad Mini, and the seventh generation iPod Nano models. This new connector is smaller than the previous one allowing for a slimmer form factor, and is reversible. Various accessories are available to connect the Apple Lightning connector to the older 30-pin dock connector or USB,[20] although not all old accessories will work, because the Lightning connector cannot handle analog signals.[21]

User-made modifications[edit]

See also: iOS jailbreaking

Like all of Apple's iOS devices, the iPod Touch is a tightly controlled or closed platform. Communication between apps is limited and controlled, and Apple is the only authorized software vendor for firmware and applications. Hackers have attempted to "jailbreak" all iOS devices to enable forbidden or unsupported features, such as multitasking in iOS versions before 4.0, themes for the home screen, and enabling the battery-percentage indicator (limited to the iPhone prior to the seventh generation iPod Touch). Jailbreaks for the iPod Touch first surfaced a month after the original model was released in September 2007, when hackers released JailbreakMe 1.0 (also called "AppSnapp") to jailbreak iPhone OS 1.1.1.[22][23] This allowed users to install third-party programs on their devices before Apple permitted this with iPhone OS 2.

Apple's warranty statement implies that an iPod Touch after jailbreaking or other modification made by unofficial means is not covered by Apple's warranty. Jailbreaking is a violation of the terms and conditions for using iOS. While the jailbreaking process can normally be undone by performing a restore through iTunes,[24] there is a risk of rendering the device unusable.

4th and 6th generation iPod touches

As of April 2021[update], there have been seven models of iPod Touch devices produced.

  • 1st generation (2007–2008) Supported until June 2010 (iPhone OS 3.1.3)
  • 2nd generation (2008–2010) Supported until March 2011 (iOS 4.2.1)
  • 3rd generation (2009–2010) Supported until September 2012 (iOS 5.1.1)
  • 4th generation (2010–2013) Supported until February 2014 (iOS 6.1.6)
  • 5th generation (2012–2015) Supported until September 2016 (iOS 9.3.5)
  • 6th generation (2015–2019) Partial support only (iOS 12.5.5)
  • 7th generation (2019–present) Fully supported (iOS 15.0.2)


Upon launch in 2007 the first generation iPod Touch received mostly good reviews for its display, its full Web browser, and YouTube support. However it was also criticized for being a "stripped down" iPhone, for lacking external volume buttons, and for having a lower-quality display.[25][26][27]

Notable competing products as of 2009 included Creative's ZEN X-Fi2, Sony's Walkman X Series, and Microsoft's Zune HD;[28][29] and as of 2011, the Samsung Galaxy Player[30] and Sony Walkman Z Series.

Later models received a more lukewarm reception, with reviewers questioning whether an iPod Touch made sense as a product in a time where smartphones had become more affordable.[31]

New iPod Touch 2021 tipped for fall launch — here's your first look

The iPod Touch hasn’t been touched by Apple since 2019. But that could be about to change. According to MacRumors writer Steve Moser, we may not be waiting too long for a stylish refresh.

“This fall Apple is planning to release the next version of the iPod Touch,” Moser tweeted, citing a rumor heard from Twitter user @AppleLe257. He included a number of renders created by @Apple_Tomorrow, which we’ve included here.

As you can see, the pictures show a device that looks remarkably like the iPhone 12 with square edges and Face ID for unlocking. That would be a welcome change, given the current iPod Touch design has remained pretty much unchanged from the fifth-generation 2012 version, which looked a lot like the iPhone 5. And while that means it has a home button for navigation, there was no Touch ID built in, so an upgrade to Face ID would be hugely welcome.

It’s interesting to speculate whether an upgrade to current iPhone design would see other Apple modernizations being introduced to a new iPod Touch. The most recent model, for example, still has a 4-inch screen, which is a relic by modern standards – even Apple’s iPhone 12 mini packs a 5.4-inch display. The iPod Touch has kept the 3.5mm headphone jack, which makes sense for a device that’s dedicated to music and video consumption, but Apple’s phones haven’t had that connectivity since the iPhone 6s and original iPhone SE. 

Of course, even if a new iPod Touch appears with iPhone 12 looks, that doesn’t mean it will have iPhone 12 internals. The last iPod Touch used the Apple A10 Fusion chip, which was already showing its age, having debuted three years earlier with the iPhone 7. Bluntly, if Apple is looking to replicate the current iPod Touch’s $199 starting price this time around, then there’s no way it will include the iPhone 12’s A14 processor.

It’s important to note that even Moser himself calls this a “rumor” rather than a bona fide leak. “Please note that this information has not been independently verified and should be treated as a rumor, not a leak,” he wrote in a follow-up tweet. But, as Moser notes, some credence is given by Apple’s addition of the words “iPod Touch” to the Apple Music PR text last November.   

We will have to wait and see. Apple’s recent moves in the audio space – from introducing the $549 AirPods Max headphones, to adding lossless audio to Apple Music at no extra charge – point to a company that’s serious about music. Surely giving the original dedicated portable music player a 2021 makeover would be the biggest statement of intent yet.

New generation ipod

I was emptying for almost half an hour, there was already a sea of shit under me, but I felt such relief that my nipples. Squeezed strongly, and my pussy was completely wet. I stroked my gradually shrinking belly with one hand, and rubbed my clitoris with the other, Orgasm after orgasm, and sweet relief was what I felt. Exhausted with pleasure, I went to the shower, washed myself well and went to bed.

iPod touch 8th Gen - 2021 RELEASE?

Suddenly, Danila quickly walked up to me and sat astride me. "Suck!" he said in an almost commanding tone. - Leave me alone, I waved it off.

Now discussing:

The key to the house lay near the terraces under a stone. Entering the house, putting the bags without disassembling, we rushed to a friend's arms, I piled Nyashka on the sofa, lay down on her, kissed her passionately and crumpled. Her breasts through her clothes. Sunny day, music on headphones, the sound of a tram track.
