User Reviews 3 I find the iPod Touch 6th generation to be a confusing device in 2016. While performance is smooth and fast thanks to the A8 chip, especially for gaming, I question who the target audience is. As an iPhone owner, I have no use for it.

Apple has refreshed its iPod Touch, upgrading the portable media player’s internal hardware to match the iPhone 6. 

The new 6th generation iPod Touch delivers a fast, fluid experience thanks to the A8 chip, the same processor used in the iPhone 6.

The A8 chip makes the iPod Touch very snappy when launching and switching between apps. 

It also enables console-quality graphics, allowing users to play the latest 3D games from the App Store. 

The iPod Touch runs on iOS 8.4, giving it access to the entire library of over 1 million iOS apps.

For entertainment, the iPod Touch has a bright 4-inch Retina display with an 1136 x 640 resolution at 326 pixels per inch. 

The screen shows photos, videos, books and more in sharp detail. 

Audio plays loudly and clearly through the built-in speaker or headphone jack.

The iPod Touch features refreshed 8MP rear and 1.2MP front cameras. Users can shoot photos and HD videos, capture selfies, and make FaceTime video calls. 

While image quality doesn’t match the iPhone 6, the new cameras are a notable upgrade.

Despite the enhancements, Apple’s portable player retains its thin, lightweight design at just 6.1mm thick and 88 grams

The anodized aluminum body, available in six color choices, fits easily in a pocket. Battery life is rated at 8 hours of video or 40 hours of audio playback.

The iPod Touch caters to both first-time iOS users as well as iPhone owners wanting a dedicated device for music, videos, apps and games. 

It lacks cellular connectivity found in iPhones, but provides full access to Apple services like iCloud, iTunes and App Store.

While powerful and feature-rich, questions remain whether the iPod Touch can maintain relevance in an era where smartphones have become ubiquitous. 

But for the price, Apple has successfully upgraded its portable media player to almost match the iPhone 6, its top-selling phone. 

For non-iPhone owners wanting iOS apps and entertainment in an ultraportable device, the new iPod Touch hits the mark.
