Apple iPod Touch 2015 Review

Apple’s sixth generation iPod touch for 2015. After three years Apple has finally released a brand new Apple iPod touch in 2015, and this Apple iPod touch is so slim. Coming in at a millimeter thinner than the already modern Apple iPhone 6 the Apple iPod touch 2015 seems to be as good as ever.
Design wise its basically unchanged which implies it appears lot looks a smaller Apple iPhone 6 from the protruding camera lens to the port layout. so this time Apple quietly launches the Apple iPod Touch 2015 version which has new hardware and new colours . (Blue , Sliver , Pink, Red , Space Grey & Gold)

Apple iPod Touch 2015: Design And Display

From a visible design standpoint, every thing else is pretty much similar to the 5th generation Apple iPod touch. It still rocks the identical 4 inch display of the Apple iPod touch 5g, and it additionally has the identical form factor and chamfered edges of the outgoing model. Apple has basically taken the power of the Apple iPhone 6 and shoehorned it into the svelte body of a 5th generation Apple iPod touch.

It is hard not to be at the least just a little bit disappointed that the size was not bumped as much as match the Apple iPhone 6’s 4.7 inch display screen, however I am sure that Apple has its reasonings for sticking with the same 4 inch form factor of the outgoing model.

Apple iPod Touch 2015: Hardware

A lot of the hardware design is similar to the 5th-generation Apple iPod Touch it replaces: you are getting a 4 inch, 1,136 x 640-pixel resolution display screen (the Apple iPhone 6 sits at 1,334 x 750 pixels), and a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch — that is similar to the Apple iPhone 6. The rest of the hardware has been introduced up to speed with the Apple iPhone 6: Apple’s 64-bit A8 chip is joined by the M8 motion coprocessor, which handles movement tracking.

Apple iPod Touch 2015: Camera

Apple kicked the touch’s camera up from 5 MP to 8 MP, however the increase in quality is not uniform. The brand new iPod is a lot better at focusing flash images and at eking out pictures in very low-light contexts, both with its 8 MP main camera and its 1 MP front camera. However in good light, the extra megapixels can seem compromised by noise or artifacting. Sure, you’ve more data, however it is not as attractive as, say, the Apple iPhone 6’s  8 MP shots.

Apple iPod Touch 2015: Battery

Amping up the processor whereas essentially keeping about the identical size battery because the last generation (1,043 mAh as in contrast with 1,030 mAh) means a lack of battery life, though. Our battery rundown test is brutal: we stream a full-screen YouTube video over Wi-Fi with the brightness and volume turned all the way up. In that test, we received about Four hours to Four hours, 15 minutes of battery life with the new Apple iPod, as compared with about 4, 45 minutes with the earlier unit. Apple guarantees eight hours of video playback, however that is locally stored video, and with the display screen brightness set to about half.
