With the release of i OS 5, Apple introduced over-the-air (OTA) updates, which allows users to download i OS software updates (just incremental changes) without plugging their i OS device to the computer.
Camera tech hasn't been updated, so the new is still using an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera, both of which are pretty far behind current camera technology in more modern Apple devices.
For those who prefer wired headphones, there is a headphone jack.
The smallest i Phones (7 and 8) have 4.7-inch displays, so the new is a good bit smaller and comparable to an i Phone 5s or SE.
Coming to a 4-inch from a larger i Phone is quite an adjustment because most of us are no longer used to using a device with such a small display.
It's tiny and it's made from a lightweight aluminum, which is nice if you need something you can just tuck in a pocket.
The A10 Fusion chip is a good bit faster than the A8 chip that was in the 6th-generation , but it's worth noting that it's underclocked in this new model compared to other A10 devices.For those of us who spent our later high school years pretending we had fancy smartphones when in fact we were just scamming our friends with i Messages sent via an i Pod touch and a good Wifi connection, it's eleventh grade all over again.Apple announced Tuesday that it is dragging the i Pod touch out of 2015 (when it was last updated) with a new A10-Fusion chip—the same one Apple puts into its i Phone 7s, which are still powerful phones despite their age—and an increased emphasis on gaming and augmented reality. In its release, Apple made sure to highlight its upcoming gaming subscription service, Apple Arcade, which will be available in the fall.As for the question of who the is for, it's not entirely clear.This is probably a good starter device for a younger child that needs access to games, Face Time, i Message, and other features, but there are also potential business applications, as this is an affordable device for something like mobile checkout.
