Would you buy a new iPod?

Sometimes, it can be easy to forget that in 2021, there is an iPod touch still available to buy. Apple actually launched the thing in early 2019, so it's not even that old! But with so many newer devices out there in the wild, especially the iPhone, no one could blame anyone for forgetting about the iPod.

Review: the new iPod touch vs. the previous model

Out of the blue, Apple delivered a seventh-generation iPod touch media player earlier this week, a repackaged version of the 2015 predecessor sporting an updated processor and double the flash storage rather than a thorough revamp with an edge-to-edge display, Face ID and so forth. The refreshed device still has a lot going for it so we thought we'd review the new iPod touch for iDB readers who might be in the market for an affordable iOS gadget.
