Four years after the 6th gen iPod Touch, Apple launches the 7th gen iPod Touch during the end of May. Two months later Apple has finally rolled out the 7th gen iPod Touch to Malaysia. If you have been planning to get one, you should buy it from the online Apple Store or from the Authorised Apple Reseller such as Switch and Machines.

7th gen iPod Touch Specifications
Apple’s 7th gen iPod Touch is powered by the A10 Fusion chip which is slightly older than the current A12 Bionic chip. The new iPod Touch also supports augmented reality (AR) and Group FaceTime which requires higher processing power. We believe the A10 Fusion chip should handle it. This is the same processor where the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus uses.
On the front of the iPod Touch is the 4″ Retina Display with a front-facing FaceTime HD camera 1.2MP. Apple retains the physical Home button for the new iPod Touch. We can expect the 8th gen iPod Touch could be similar to the current iPhone X design. If you are expecting for Touch ID on this new iPod Touch, you might need to wait for a longer time for Apple to include this feature on the next generation iPod Touch. The back comes with an 8MP camera and below it has the 3.55mm audio jack.
The new iPod Touch comes in six colors which are Pink, Silver, Space Gray, Gold, Blue, and Red. The Red is the same limited edition color where every purchase of Red color will be contributed to the Global Fund to fight AIDS.
Moreover, after full charge, you can use the iPod Touch for up to 40 hours of music playback. The iPod Touch also will be supporting Apple’s upcoming iOS 13 which will be available on September.
