Apple iPod Touch 7th Generation Review and Features

The seventh generation iPod Touch (marketed as the iPod touch, colloquially known as the iPod touch (2019) or iPod touch 7) is a mobile device designed and marketed by Apple Inc. with a touchscreen-based user interface. It is the successor to the iPod Touch (6th generation), the first major update to the line since 2015.

It was released on May 28, 2019, and discontinued on May 10, 2022. It was the final product released and sold in Apple’s iPod product line.

The seventh-generation iPod touch was introduced on May 28, 2019, running iOS 12.3. It can play music, movies, television shows, audiobooks, and podcasts and sort its media library by songs, artists, albums, videos, playlists, genres, composers, podcasts, audiobooks, and compilations.

Scrolling is achieved by swiping a finger across the screen. Headset controls can pause, play, skip, and repeat tracks. However, the EarPods that come with the seventh-generation iPod touch do not include a remote or microphone. The seventh-generation iPod touch supports iOS 13 through iOS 15.

The Apple A10 system-on-chip in the seventh-generation iPod touch enables more advanced features than its predecessors. This includes ARKit applications and the Group FaceTime functionality.

The seventh-generation iPod touch features the Apple A10 processor and M10 motion coprocessor. This is the same processor used in the iPhone 7 and the sixth-generation iPad. However, it is underclocked to 1.64 GHz from 2.34 GHz, making the iPod Touch weaker than the other devices with the same chip.

The seventh-generation iPod touch features the same front and rear camera systems as the sixth-generation device. This includes an 8 MP rear-facing camera, capable of recording video in 1080p resolution at 30 fps and slow-motion video in 720p at 120 fps.

The camera also supports different features, including burst photos, HDR photos, and panoramic photos. The front-facing camera is a FaceTime HD camera capable of taking photos at 1.2 MP and recording video in 720p at 30 fps.

This camera also features auto HDR for video recordings and burst photo capabilities. This is the only iPod to come in a 256 GB storage option—the highest capacity ever offered on an iPod, surpassing the 160 GB capacity of the sixth-generation iPod Classic, which was discontinued in 2014.

This was also the only iPod Touch model to natively be able to view the battery percentage without jailbreaking or third-party applications.

Video Review

Did You Know?

Despite being the co-founder, Jobs was in a bit of a power struggle with CEO John Sculley in the 80s, which eventually led to his resignation from Apple. Jobs went on to take on more successful projects, including NeXT computers and Pixar. He rejoined Apple in 1996 after Apple bought NeXT, and much of the tech used in NeXT made its way to apple products, and finally evolved into the Mac OS X.
