The iPod touch isn’t dead!
The 2019 iPod touch now features an A10 processor (the previous one had A8) and goes up to 256 GB of storage (up from 128). That’s it! That’s all there is to add to the “What’s New” section if one was to create it for the iPod touch 2019.
It still features a 4″ display with big ugly bezels on the front, it still boasts a boring 8MP camera from the yesteryears, and is even available in the same set of vibrant colors as it has always been. The A10 processor is as old as the iPhone 7 series, but you do get the added benefit of Group FaceTime and ARKit support now.
I’m actually quite surprised Apple chose to update the little guy at all, but from what I’ve read so far, this makes for the perfect entry-level iOS device for kids and retail, especially considering the upcoming launch of Apple Arcade at the end of this year.

I’m not sure this makes for a great “entry-level iOS device for kids” in India though.
