iPod touch 7th Gen Unboxing/Review – Who Should Buy It?

by birtanpublished on October 4, 2020

Hey guys what is going on this is AI Apple geek I'm here to help you understand your everyday tech one video at a time and today we're gonna be taking a look at the brand new iPod Touch 7th generation I want to talk about what's new what has changed and most importantly why it even exists in 2019 let's get started now first things first let's go ahead and take a look at the device itself the unboxing experience is pretty much exactly the same as the previous two generations the fifth and sixth generation iPod Touch this is rocking the same 4-inch Retina display as found on those generations as

Well fun fact they used to tell you how to get the iPod out of the plastic casing on the back of the plastic casing and just like the previous generation iPod touches we have a QuickStart guide a lightning cable and surprise surprise a pair of headphones with the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack let's get this out of the way and continue with the review now I just got to say before we dive into any of these specs I'm very happy to see Apple refresh the iPod Touch lineup obviou this is probably gonna be the last ipod touch we ever see

Now as for the design is pretty much exactly the same as the iPod Touch 6th generation we still have the same iPhone 6 cameras 8 megapixels on the back 1.2 on the front we also have the black bar for the Wi-Fi antenna as well as the same basic design on the bottom the Lightning port the speaker grille and of course the headphone jack this is the only current iOS device that Apple sells that has the old square home button the only way to know for sure if this is the seventh gen is to go into settings general about and look at it there because there is no physical difference

Between this and the previous generation and I forgot how hard it was the type on a 4-inch display this is this is really hard right now this device is rocking the 810 fusion processor the same one found in the iPhone 7 at 1.6 2 gigahertz with 2 gigabytes of memory by the way this is the first iPod to ever have 2 gigabytes of RAM alright so I'm gonna go ahead and run the Geekbench test and see what kind of numbers we get at the and all right so it looks like the Geekbench s has finished and we have a single core score of 27 24 with a

Multi-core score of 40 709 now if you saw my chip contest video you know that those numbers should not be right I mean the iPhone 7s 810 fusion should be hitting a higher number which as you guys can see here is 35 67 and sixty 78 respectively which means that just like the previous generation iPod Touch the processor is under clocked they probably had to do this to accommodate the battery and these small casing but still just know that you're not getting iPhone 7 performance it's actually closer to the iPhone 6s and the iPhone se I might actually make a speed test video

About that now the cameras on this thing are okay unless less than okay like I said they're rocking the iPhone 6 cameras very poor picture quality especially the front camera they're really only good for FaceTime so I just got to say it that's bad and because the design has stayed the same it suffers from the same little tiny speaker that the previous generations did as well which I think it makes up for with the headphone jack don't you think all right let's talk about who this iPod is for because in a day and age of smartphones being everywhere and it obviously being

Able to play music the question stands who in the world would want to buy an iPod Touch now there are three main demographics that I can think of right now to whom this iPod Touch is primarily directed at the first one being somebody who doesn't want to invest heavily into an iOS ecosystem for example you're an Android user who wants to try out iOS without dumping a ton of money into an iPhone or an iPad this is the cheapest way and easiest way to get into the system you'll have access to a world of services including iCloud the upcoming

Apple Arcade News plus TV Plus which makes it perfect for kids as well because they can also contact you via iMessage and FaceTime when I bought my first iPod touch I think it was the fourth generation back in the day I was so excited it was my first ever touchscreen device I was just freakin blown and I believe this device can still be that for many kids out there now the second demographic that I see this being very useful to is special use cases for example if you wanted a device just for music this is probably the best

Way you can still be connected to Wi-Fi and do a whole bunch of things and just store music on your iPod if you don't use streaming services or you have built an actual music library over the years you might not want all that music on your phone because it would take up too much storage this is a great place to dump it this iPod Touch now supports up to 256 gigabytes of storage which is a lot more expensive I wouldn't really recommend that because that's kind of getting into the territory of some older iPhones and other smartphones but it's definitely possible if you really need

It and the last demographic would be those of you who want to test out stuff like jailbreaks or programs or apps maybe you're a developer who doesn't want to break their primary device their main phone or tablet you need a scratch device to test something out this is a great device to do so you have all the great software that Apple has developed for iOS like homekit Sirikit a art kit which by the way this iPod does now support AR or perhaps your business professional wanting to use this as part of your business as a tool maybe for

Your employees to run a company app this is a really cheap and easy way to do that now as for everybody else I really would not recommend buying this iPod at all because let's be honest it's really just gonna sit in your drawer like this one will probably sit in mind with my other iPod if you're looking for the latest and greatest I would definitely look elsewhere objectively speaking it's not a bad device but it's certainly nothing to lose your pants over if you're in one of those three demographics just know that this iPod will last you for a while to

Eight inch it will last you at least iOS 13 14 15 so you won't have to worry about buying another one any time soon all right well I hope you enjoyed this video if you did please consider subscribing to the channel and if you do subscribe I will see you guys in the next one peace
