There were lots of pouts when Apple silently launched its 7th-generation iPod Touch in May. It's been 4 years since the 6th generation iPod Touch, users seem to be Apple will never launch an ipod again. But the iPod Touch Gen 7 still appears to prove Apple still knows how to surprise others and please many of its customers.
Why am I expecting a device like iPod Touch gen 7? As well as the goal to write the article, simply serve the most basic needs of music listening. Before Apple removed the 3.5mm Jack on iPhone 7. I often listen to music on iPhone because of its convenience. However, since the time of iPhone 7, although using a lot of music players from hi-end to popular, there is something that cannot make me happy to be very hard to say.
The cause of this is due to the movement of technology. If I had a hard time collecting and buying music and then copying it into a music player a few years ago, now I only use Stream music services. In total, I used 4 services: Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal and Qobuz, each service has different strengths and weaknesses, and so I can't let go of anyone but even though I spend my stuff every month. nearly million dong. I'm sure it's not just me but a lot of music enthusiasts out there who are changing the habit of listening to music and this is becoming more and more proven through the outstanding development of music services. .
However, if it is just music streaming, iPhone can still handle everything perfectly. The problem here is the 3.5mm port. I have a lot of good headphones and I really want to experience a new album, my favorite song with my favorite headphones and of course via the 3.5mm port and so the iPhone is now can't meet.
The current music player has a top notch configuration, but in terms of software, it is hard for companies to make it sound good, bringing a smooth and smooth feeling like the one used on smartphones. But personally, the stupid lag lag music browsing is easy to drop mood. It is this that inspires me to find the most basic solution to serve this music and I start to struggle.
I have an iPod Touch 4, it still works perfectly, but over time, the old iOS 6 could not be compatible with new applications anymore. Even Apple Music ae cannot use and this option seems to fail.
I even thought of buying an iPhone SE, and an iPhone 6s to use. However, at the time I was hesitating to choose 1 in 2 because these devices were all old, there was no warranty and machine build status, Apple released iPod Touch gen 7. So I made one and always right away to stop that ponderous chain of days back and forth.
Apple does nothing but upgrade the device's processor from the A8 chip to A10 and improve the device's memory capacity to 256Gb. We will have a light-weight music player, a 4-inch screen with a Home button that I forgot it nearly 2 years ago. However, the iPod Touch still has very basic and good things that make me extremely happy.
The first is its compact size. My high-end music players are all big and heavy. There are children up to half a kilo and that's one of the many reasons why I don't want to go anywhere. However, when I held the iPod Touch in my hand, I was extremely excited because of its light weight, superior finish and compact size. I can leave her neatly in my pocket without thinking and I can put it in my headset box.
The second is speed. I used to think that it was not the A11 or A12, Apple was miserable and as many said that Apple solved the inventory of some abc chips and many other reasons for their support. Until I experienced it, even though the 2-year-old A10 chip wasn't Apple's most powerful chip today, however, when equipped on a small device like an iPod with a 4-inch screen. All operations can be said extremely smoothly, quickly no less than when I manipulate the iPhone Xs Max at all. And this is the point that makes me most satisfied because as mentioned above, once you have experienced the delicious part with smooth speed then the feeling of stunned or broken interface will make you very upset. Accompanied by the new iPod is iOS12, I am also very eager to wait to upgrade to iOS13 because Apple Music on iOS13 is much more.
In terms of music, iPod Touch is, of course, not the best music player. At 2019, Apple still did nothing to bring the Hi-res experience to users. What I have here is a machine with 16bit / 44kHz decoding capability. Although I use 2 Hi-res music streaming services, Tidal and Qobuz, it is not important, just with good CD quality is enough for me to enjoy.
I bought the 32Gb version – the cheapest version for $ 200. With me that is enough for my very basic music listening needs. Many people will complain that it won't be enough with ae's music store, there is no memory card, but for me personally, I only use it with music streaming services, I think that's more than enough to just have a connection The wifi has music and 32Gb is enough for me to download nearly a hundred albums to listen offline .
Battery is a problem that many brothers complain to previous generation iPods and it is clear that Apple has not improved anything in this version. However it is when you compare to iPhone and do other things like playing games or Facebook surfing the web. If you simply listen to music, I assure you that iPod is one of the second best battery players today. According to Apple, it is 40 hours for listening to music. However, because I listen to streaming, the battery life falls more than 20 hours. It's too good for me to listen to music all day or if I listen to it for a few hours, I have to recharge it all week.
About the sound of the new Apple iPod Touch, because I don't have gene 6, I don't know how to compare. However, the overall sound background is clean, not boiling in the background even though I plugged Khan – a highly sensitive in-ear to enjoy. The new iPod Touch has an easy-to-hear sound quality, a bit warm and easy to hear. Power is strong enough to pull any in-ear and other fullsize kids. I plugged in and only opened about 25% of the volume was audible.
In short, I am completely satisfied with what iPod Touch has to offer. Ae can choose to compare to buy yourself an old iPhone. However, when I hold an iPhone, I will be distracted away from other things like Facebook, Instagram, etc. so I want a basic music player: compact, fast, sound quality. Good and iPod Touch gen 7 completely meets this. Sometimes we ask for too many things in one device, but if you think about the most basic value, you'll see that iPod Touch gen 7 is totally worth it.
