Apple Launches New iPods With Refreshed Internals

       Well it seems like just yesterday Apple gave a refresh to one of it's handheld device that was aging up & quite on the verge of being crumbled, as rumours were flowing around. It almost took three years for Apple to give a refresh to their iPod Lineup all from iPod touch to iPod Nano & shuffle. What's new? Let's find out.

iPod Nano & iPod shuffle :

      Well hardware department here didn't quite got an upgrade, but Colours certainly did got a refresh. Both of these iPod Nano & Shuffle are now available in dark blue, hot pink and gold, to the already available silver, black, and red options. This shows that Apple is not really interested in these anymore.
       That's it !   Really, Apple ?

iPod Touch :

       Well People looked upon iPod as an affordable offering to the already available iPhone. That similar experience with not alot of great features through iOS, is how iPod touch can be distinguished from IPhone. Well this category became quite popular as a handheld gaming device in earlier days. Since Airplay could come in very handy.

iPod touch did got few improvements :
  • It now has a 64 bit Apple's own A8 chip inside coupled with the M8 motion co-processor to track your activity data just like iPhone does.
  • A new 8MP iSight primary camera 
  • iPod touch comes preloaded with iOS 8. 
  • While all other features are same, sadly. That also goes for the design.

     "iPod touch gives customers around the world access to Apple Music, the App Store and iOS, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, starting at just $199,” says Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of iPhone, iPod and iOS Product Marketing
         It's really strange that iPod line-up was kept so silent for a long period of time and only internals got a bump, designwise it's still the same. This is a part where Apple can really try things out & excel iPod touch as the companies like Samsung do with their S6 edge smartphone(Edge is the gimmick). Well even if Apple brings in something crazy with iPod touch they've nothing to loose, as those things can be elevated & modified in the perfect iPhone of it's kind.
       The new iPod touch starts at $199 for 16GB, $249 for 32GB and $299 for 64GB, while the entire iPod family in all its five new colors is available starting today. For the first time, iPod touch is available in a 128GB configuration for $399.

      Hey Apple please stop saying in your keynote's that, this is the best iPhone Yet, Well last one came out a year ago ?
