Apple has launched 2019 iPod touch 7th generation with A10 Fusion processor, immersive augmented reality (AR) experiences, Group FaceTime and more. This update comes after iPod touch 6th generation in July 2015.

The new Apple iPod touch is powered by Apple’s A10 Fusion chip, and it is the same one found on the iPhone 7 that was launched in 2016. This new iPod touch comes in three storage variants namely 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB. While the A10 Fusion chip might be old, it is capable of handling new features which were previously unavailable on the iPod touch.
