Apple iPod Touch 2015 16GB, space gray

 

It's a welcome update that keeps the Touch competitive with the current generation of iPhone and iPad hardware -- this new Touch will play the latest games and be able to utilize the latest apps that were too taxing on the older hardware, and the new...

The 2015 Apple iPod Touch offers great performance and an impressive camera in a tiny package.

The 4-inch display is far too small, and the battery life is middling. And it's largely redundant if you already have a smartphone or tablet.

The updated iPod Touch remains a great portable media player and overall entertainment device, but its small screen feels like a throwback to an earlier era.

Apple iPod touch (2015)

 

The Apple iPod touch is the best media player there is if you don't want a cellular connection.

Fast processor. Excellent app selection. Well-built.

Mediocre battery life. Not an audiophile music player.

Comparisons and Conclusions Apple seems to have very thought-through life cycles for its handheld products. Year one is premium; year two, midrange; year three, budget; year four, supported but not sold; and year five, for God's sake will you buy a new...

iPod Touch 6th Generation

 

Just when you thought it might be over for the iPod Touch since there hasn't been a refresh in 3 years and phones seem to be replacing pocket media players... BOOM: Apple surprises us with the 6th generation iPod Touch. Though it might look the same on...

All the goodness of iOS in your pocket without a cellular contract. Great for gaming and Apple Music

Now that most folks own smartphones, the iPod Touch might seem atavistic

Thinking of upgrading from a 5th generation iPod Touch? Do it! The 6th gen model is over 2x faster and the 8MP camera is much better than the outgoing 5MP. You'll get 1080p video recording, slow motion, time lapse, panorama and generally sharper and...

Review: Apple iPod touch (6th generation)

 

It's almost surprising that Apple bothered to update the iPod touch in 2015. With most people already having a smartphone in their pockets, what place does a Wi-Fi only smartphone have in today's marketplace? Let's try to answer that, as Gizmag reviews...

We could jump into a long list of technical feature breakdowns (and we will cover some of that), but that one question remains: what the hell does one do with an iPod touch in a smartphone-saturated world?

Apple iPod touch review: the sixth gen shows there's life in the old dog yet

 

Since its launch in 2007, the iPod Touch – Apple's “iPhone without a phone” – has sold over 100 million units, but in recent years it's been forced to watch from the sidelines as the flashier iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch have hogged the limelight.

Speedy operation ; Abundant features ; Long battery life

Pathetic built-in speaker ; No high-res support

In today’s smartphone-dominated portables market, one thing’s for sure – if you do hanker after an MP3 player, the impressive new iPod Touch makes your choice a no-brainer. Much more than an MP3 player, the sixth-gen Touch is really a powerful pocket...

Apple iPod Touch (6th gen) 128GB review

 

The iPod Touch returns with a few tweaks in tow, but is there still life in the old portable music player?

Gorgeous screen ; Bright, punchy picture ; Clear, direct and upbeat sound ; Speedy operation ; Sharp camera ; Practical design

Screen may be too small for some

A tempting alternative to the iPhone for those that don’t need cellular coverage

The 6th generation iPod Touch is the latest version of Apple's touchscreen-equipped MP3 player. It looks identical to its predecessor, but internally it's significantly more advanced than the 2012 model. Apple promises better performance at lower power...
