Apple launch new iPod Touch a week ahead of the WWDC 2019 keynote

Apple announced a new generation of the iPod Touch. This announcement comes just ahead of the annual Apple Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) next week.

iPod Touch runs the A10 Fusion chip, which enables augmented reality (AR) experience on AR apps, and also improves significantly on the performance and graphics capabilities. This is the same A10 fusion chip that was in the iPhone 7 line-up.

The latest iPod runs on iOS 12 out of the box. The dedicated music device is a 4-inch Retina Display, which of course can turn into a gaming platform once Apple announce their gaming platform Arcade.

The new iPod Touch are now available in stores in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the UAE, UK and US.

It will be available in three storage option, 32GB, 128GB and 256GB. The pricing of the new iPod Touch starts at INR₹ 18,900 for the 32GB version, INR₹ 28,900 for the 128GB version and INR₹ 38,900 for the 256GB version.

However the question remains how relevant is the iPod Touch if you already own an iPhone or an iPad either way you would use bluetooth speakers or bluetooth earphones to play the soundtrack.
