Apple has finally announced the long awaited refresh for its iPod range today, the previous versions of the iPod shuffle, iPod Nano and the iPod touch were last refreshed in 2012 with the iPod Touch getting a fully fledged retina display of 4 inches and a new sleek iPhone like anodized aluminum back, the Chip inside the iPod was a Apple A5 – a chip that was old at the time of launch. Flash forward to 2015, we have Apple bumping the minimum specs of every ios device to 64bit technology. The iPod, which ran a dual core cortex A9 processor is out of date at the moment so it is a logical step to increase power on the 2015 refresh we have today. Say hello to the iPod touch 5th/6th generation. The iPod has now recieved a welcome refresh in the form of a Apple A8 Soc – a chip from the iPhone 6/6+, although we expected Apple to add a Apple A7, this is quite a surprise indeed, the rest of the specs are mostly the same, but the rear camera is now bumped to 8mp. The display in the iPod remains unchanged, the same 4″ display is present and so is the fancy loop and anodized she’ll which is now available in a dark blue, champagne gold and hot pink,and last and not least Apple has added a 128GB option replacing the storage missed by the hard disk based ipod classic

And as usual, Apple has quietly added new color options to the already aging Apple ipod shuffle and ipod Nano which are two devices that don’t require the latest and greatest hardware to run on, with no cosmetic changes apart from the addition of hot pink, champagne gold and deep blue, the duo are still kept at their usual $49 – $149 price.
