Re: Latest iPod touch does anyone have it

The iPhone 7 will be support for a few years yet so that doesn’t worry me in the slightest.
I have an iPhone 8 as it is and did think about getting an iPhone 7 at the time I bought the 8.
The iPhone 7 as far as I know uses the A10 chip as does the latest iPod touch and that’s only 2 generations of chip behind the latest Apple iPhone X which uses the A 12 as does the current iPad mini model.
I’m looking at the Tech Specs sheet here and a Fingerprint reader isn’t mentioned so I’m going to have to go back in time and type my Password every time I wish to unlock the device <smile>
The iPod touch doesn’t support Apple Pay either but then again I suppose it can’t given that it doesn’t have a fingerprint reader.

I thought about it but the chip is only the equivalent of iPhone 7 and it could be obsolete in a year. The thing that really put me off though was that it doesn't use a finger-print sensor. The thought of entering a very long string every time I wanted to use my password manager really did it!

Very good to consider if you stil have a good mike for it such as zoom IQ6. I might do it later on, as my IPhone is now dying.

Does anyone on list have the latest Apple iPod touch?
I’m thinking of buying one to compliment the other IOS devices I have here.
I like the idea of having a small device - something smaller than the
iPad mini - about the size of an iPhone but not being an iPhone.
I did have an iPod touch 2nd Generation all them years ago and I was
extremely fond of that machine.
The speaker wasn’t that great - still better than that of the Victor
Reader Stream though - and the device just got so slow over the years
so I eventually gave it away to a teenaged Blue-Eyed Groovy who
appreciates it to this day.
So with the latest generation I would imagine the quality of the
speaker is better though probably not as good as say an iPhone 8 or X,
so long as the quality is better than it was as I remember it.
Apple have a model with 256GB storage which is the model I’m considering.
The latest generation runs the A10 processor.
