Apple introduced a new iPhone Touch model on Tuesday morning. The new device offers the A10 Fusion chip, which will improve performance in games, augmented reality, Group FaceTime, and more. The new iPod touch is available to order on apple.com and in the Apple Store App starting today and in stores later this week.
“We’re making the most affordable iOS device even better with performance that is twice as fast as before, Group FaceTime and augmented reality starting at just $199,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of Product Marketing. “The ultra-thin and lightweight design of iPod touch has always made it ideal for enjoying games, music and so much more wherever you go.”
Buyers can outfit the new model with up to 256GB of storage, allowing them to play games or media and enjoy the performance boost over the previous model. Apple is launching Apple Arcade this fall, a game subscription service with over 100 new and exclusive games with no ads or additional purchases, and the ability to download games for offline play. You can also take advantage of the thousands of free games that are available on Apple App Store.
Apple stated that the new iPod touch starts at $199 for the 32GB model, $299 for the 128GB model and $399 for the 256GB model. The 2019 iPod touch is available in six finishes; space gray, white, gold, blue, pink and the popular (PRODUCT)RED edition.
The new models are already available 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 the US.
