Apple's new music player runs on the company's A10 Fusion chip, the same processor that powers the iPhone 7, making it powerful enough to run augmented reality applications. The iPod touch has a 4-inch 1, by resolution screen with pixels per inch, meaning its display is the same size and resolution as the one found on the iPhone SE from and the iPhone 5. Despite running on an Apple processor that's now a couple of years old, the iPod touch was still able to run graphics-heavy games with ease in my experience.
I didn't notice any stutters or lag when playing games like "Dead Trigger 2" or "Shadowgun Legends. It will also support iOS 13, the new iPhone software Apple is launching this fall that came out in beta on Monday. If you're an avid iPhone user that owns any model newer than an iPhone 5 or iPhone SE, using the iPod touch is going to take some getting used to, simply because the screen is particularly tiny compared to that of modern smartphones.
I often found myself struggling to type without making mistakes, since they keyboard felt small and cramped compared to the phone I'm accustomed to using on a daily basis. Because the iPod isn't meant to replace your iPhone, it makes sense that it wouldn't have all of the same features and benefits found on Apple's smartphones, like the company's facial recognition technology or a high-resolution camera. But even with this in mind, I was a little disappointed to find that there was no Touch ID fingerprint sensor in the home button, regardless of the fact that I only unlock my iPod about a fraction of the number of times I open my iPhone each day.
Inconveniences aside, my iPod holds a lot of personal information, since I restored it from my iPhone's backup, and I wish it was protected by both my fingerprint and a passcode.
But given its smaller, less-sharp screen and lower resolution camera, I unsurprisingly found that the iPod is still best used as a dedicated music player. What did surprise me, however, was how the iPod made it much easier to filter out distractions compared to using my smartphone. Because there's no cellular version of the iPod, I couldn't obsessively check my email, Facebook, or work chatroom while listening to music unless I had a Wi-Fi connection, which usually isn't the case during my daily subway commute.
The iPod touch in may not seem as relevant as it once was, but that doesn't mean there isn't a place for it. It feels like a first step toward an iPhone for children that may be too young for their own smartphone, considering it's significantly less expensive than an iPhone or an iPad and doesn't require a data plan. And that's especially critical now that the company is focusing on expanding its services business with new gaming and TV offerings this fall, giving potential customers a less-expensive path into Apple's ecosystem.
Or perhaps Apple's iconic music player is just too beloved for the company to let it die, regardless of whether or not it still fits into our lives.

The new iPod touch is a nostalgic nod to the past, but it could be important to Apple's future. Lisa Eadicicco , Business Insider.
