    We go hands-on with the Apple iPod touch 7th generation. How does it stack up to the previous 6th generation iPod touch? Should you buy it over a similar sized device like the iPhone SE?

    What do you think about the new iPod touch 7? Is an A10 Fusion + 2GB of RAM and 256GB of storage enough of an upgrade?

      Thanks Apple. For those of us that need music in a dedicated device for being using in the car that can be filled (downloaded for off line playing) with songs on the go through Apple Music, this is heaven. I don’t want to have fiscally downloaded music in my phone for offline music, my phone is for streaming. iPod is for having your music (big collections with some tracks never found in streaming services) every where you go.

    I will miss the wrist strap port from the iPod Touch 5th gen (my current iPod Touch) and btw I CAN'T get and iPhone SE because my mum doesn't let me get a mobile phone until I'm 12 (This is ridiculous, im 11 turning 12 in a week and my mum will not let me have the iPhone 5s my grandpa had since he upgraded to a Samsung Galaxy A20s)

    Apple needs to quit with these types of ipods. I'd kill to have a music only ipod that has the HD sound that other DAP's have. Doesn't need a camera or games or other useless crap.

    there are people who care about quality of the camera and a12 or a10 blah blah but I'm just someone who wants to use insta and imessage. I really don't understand why a small device with a lesser camera is soo bad. And cmon, its literally 200 bucks, like, do you really expect the f***ing iPhone 100,000? Personally, I think it's pretty good for its price.

    The only thing you forgot to show was how to use the iPod for its intended use, listening to music. How about an Apple Music demo or how to sync a device with iTunes?
