Apple announces its first new iPod in four years
If you were a fan of the iPod Touch, you’re going to love the new iPod! This is Apple’s first iPod in four years.
Although the iPod may seem outdated to some, its smaller size and cheaper price help Apple attract a different market.
At the iPod’s peak in 2008, Apple sold more than 55 million units. Apple stopped releasing its iPod sales numbers in 2013, after it sold fewer than 20 million of the music players. They’re no longer prominently listed on Apple’s website or showcased in Apple Stores.
The new iPod Touch gets a huge hardware upgrade, it will be twice as fast as before and will allow for group Facetime calls.
The iPod touch is also getting a new 256 GB storage option to address the customers who want to save A LOT of music. That’s by far the biggest storage capacity Apple has ever put in an iPod.
The new iPod touch starts at $199 for the 32 GB and goes up to $399 for the 256 GB. It comes in space gray, white, gold, blue, pink, and red, and is available for online order in 27 countries starting Tuesday.
It will be interesting to see how they sell!
