Apple iPod Touch (2019): A10 Fusion chip

With the A10 Fusion chip, the Apple iPod Touch 2019 has the same processor as the iPhone 7 (Plus) and iPad (2018). But how do I notice that in practice? The graphic display on the Apple iPod Touch (2019) is up to 3x faster than its predecessor, making the iPod Touch more suitable for gaming than ever before. I even us it to explore the world of Augmented Reality. Additionally, I can have large group conversations on FaceTime for the first time without any problems.

Apple iPod Touch 6: A8 processor

We also find the A8 chip of the Apple iPod Touch 6 in the iPhone 6. That gives me enough power to listen to music, watch videos, and install apps. I can also use the Apple iPod Touch 6 to play games, though larger games aren't as fluent on my screen. They also need more time to start than on the Apple iPod Touch (2019). And due to the less powerful processor, I can't use the Apple iPod Touch 6 for Augmented Reality games either.

Apple iPod Touch (2019): 32GB, 128GB, 256GB

The Apple iPod Touch (2019) is the first to come with a 256GB storage capacity. This means I have more than enough space to download all my apps. I can also download all my music, so I can also listen to my favorite tunes offline when I'm on the subway. The other 2 options are 32GB and 128GB.

Apple iPod Touch 6: 16GB, 32GB, 128GB

Like the new iPod Touch (2019), the Apple iPod Touch 6 comes in 3 storage capacities. They are a bit lower, though: 16GB, 32GB, and 128GB. I choose an Apple iPod Touch 6 with a lower storage capacity if I don't want to use any large apps or files and if I'm used to often cleaning up my device.

In many respects, the Apple iPod Touch (2019) has remained similar to the Apple iPod Touch 6. I see the following similarities:

  • 1.2-megapixel front camera and 8-megapixel rear camera.
  • Both devices have a 4-inch Retina screen.
  • The same aluminum casing with dimensions 12.34cm x 5.86cm x 0.61cm and an 88-gram weight.
  • The available colors Space Gray, Silver, Gold, Pink, Blue, and Red.
  • Both Apple iPod devices have a Lightning port and a 3.5mm port.

Conclusion

The Apple iPod Touch (2019) is taking the biggest leap with its processor. With this A10 Fusion chip, the Apple iPod Touch (2019) can run graphics that are up to 3x faster. As a result, large apps and games load faster, and I can even use Augmented Reality. The Apple iPod Touch 6 has an option for a 16GB version, which the Apple iPod Touch (2019) lacks. The 2019 version does let me pick a 256GB storage. Other than that, the 2 models are even in terms of camera, screen, and design.
