Apple has updated its ipods and they were launched today. Apple sure kept this quiet. I didn’t know about this until I read my Twitter TL. They have some new colors and even added a 128 gb ipod. Really? I already own the ipod Classic which has 160 gb and I love it but they discontinued it. I use to own a 32 gb ipod touch but I ran out of room. That’s why I bought the ipod classic.
Apple quietly launched some new iPods on Wednesday, introducing a few new colors and giving its dedicated music player a technical overhaul. In a press release, the company said that the new music players have an A8 chip that makes them six times faster than their predecessor, an 8 MP camera and the company’s fitness-tracking M8 chip.
The new iPod starts at $199 and comes in several colors, including some new ones — gold, silver, space grey, blue, pink and red, which are also now available for the iPod nano and iPod shuffle. And, for real music lovers, Apple’s offering a new 128 GB iPod touch for $329.
Overall, it’s a solid update. Any iPod touch fan out there should be happy with it — especially since it’s been three years since the last major update.
“But,” I can hear you say, “who cares about the iPod anymore?”
Who cares? Some of us do care. Not everyone wants to listen to their music on their phone. I like to keep my music separate from my phone. I like the small size of my ipod classic. My phone is the Galaxy Note 3 and it’s much larger than my ipod. When I go walking my ipod is the perfect size instead of carrying my big phone.
