Apple today introduced the new iPod touch with improvements in power, capability and communication. The new iPod Touch can now let users experience immersive augmented reality (AR) and Group FaceTime, making it easy to chat with family members, friends or colleagues simultaneously.
The iPod touch comes in a new 256GB capacity, giving plenty of space to download music for offline listening through Apple Music or the iTunes Store. With Apple Music, subscribers can access a catalogue of over 50 million songs, thousands of playlists, Beats 1 Radio and daily editorial selections from the world’s best music experts. Subscribers can also create their own playlists, watch music videos, listen to exclusive Beats 1 shows from their favourite artists on demand and share music with their friends.
According to Apple, the games on the iPod Touch can run up to three times faster and smoother. Later this year, gamers can look forward to Apple Arcade, a game subscription service with over 100 new and exclusive games with no ads or additional purchases, and the ability to download games for offline play.
AR is more engaging and immersive in the new iPod Touch with the new capabilities of shared AR, persistent AR, which is tied to a specific location, and image detection, making it possible for the new iPod touch to magically bring to life 3D objects like toys and sculptures.
The new iPod touch starts at Rs 18,900 for the 32GB model, Rs 28,900 for the 128GB model and Rs 38,900 for the 256GB model. The iPod touch is available in six finishes; space grey, white, gold, blue, pink and (PRODUCT)RED.
