Apple’s music player gets a hardware overhaul
In this day and age, is there still a place for the venerable iPod? Apple seems to think so, as it just overhauled the iPod Touch’s hardware substantially, adding quite a bit of grunt under the hood for better performance.
The new, revamped iPod now sports a 64-bit A8 processor for better gaming and performance, as well as the M8 motion co-processor to keep track of users’ physical activity, and a new 8-megapixel rear camera. Apple did not say what clock speeds the new processors were running at, but TechCrunch found that the new processors were chugging along at 1.1GHz, which is slower than the iPhone 6’s 1.39GHz.
Along with the iPod, Apple also introduced new color options for the iPod Nano and Shuffle. They can now be had in dark blue, hot pink and gold.
The new iPod Touch is priced in the PH at Php 12,590 for the 16GB model, Php 15,590 for the 32GB model, Php 18,590 for the 64GB model and Php 24,990 for the 128GB model.
