So, we hear that some Apple fans and tech enthusiasts were slightly let down by the iPhone5 announcement. Peeps, all hope is not lost! Don’t forget that Apple also announced the renewed/refreshed music players we all love – namely, the iPod Touch.
Announced after the iPhone5 at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, the iPod Touch went through a major update, something not everyone expected. Still one of the world’s favourite music players, the iPod Touch now runs on Apple’s dual-core A5 processor. Yay for running applications and playing games on the iPod Touch!
It also comes with a new 5-megapixel camera that uses some of the same stuff (read: technology) that the iPhone 5 uses. It’s capable of recording videos at 1080p (read: high-definition aka HD). Yay for awesome picture-taking and video recording!
But here’s what we think is the best part – the iPod touch (which looks like the new iPhone5) will be made available in multiple colours:
And each iPod Touch comes with a matching camera loop. Yay for rainbow colours!
Also, each iPod touch comes with Apple’s redesigned earphones, the EarPods. Hundreds of ears were scanned in the research process to create the perfect fit for the EarPods so that they can rest in your ears. The headphones have sound ports built into the stem and the sides, for deeper and richer bass tones. Yay for awesome new headphones!
Apple says it 3D-scanned hundreds of ears to create the perfect fit for the EarPods so that they rest in your ears, but don’t create a seal like traditional headphones.
Priced at USD299 for the 32GB version and $399 for the 64GB version, the iPod Touch is expected to arrive in stores in the US by October this year. Yup. We know what we want for Christmas. Just saying!
