In my review of the iPod Touch 2019, my colleague Patrick Holland very clearly explains why, despite their attractiveness to certain users, most will want to miss iPod Touch. And although I can fully understand and agree with many of his points, I finally see it differently.
I was a stubborn supporter of iOS, and in particular thefor nearly 11 years since I bought iPhone 3G in 2008. There are two simple reasons: I like the interface and its evolution, and the choice of game and app in the App Store has never disappointed me.
This is really. I have an iPhone XS Max and I absolutely do not need the iPod Touch, but I'm excited about those of you who are doing it. And there are three reasons why the iPod Touch is close to $ 200.
Later this year, Apple will releasea subscription service where you pay a monthly fee to play iOS games made by some of the best game developers in the world. The most exciting for me are Annapurna Interactive, the creators of Donut County, and Mistwalker, headed by the creator of Final Fantasy Hironobu Sakaguchi. You will sign up for the service and then download any Apple Arcade game you wish at no additional cost.
The best thing about this service for owners of iPod Touch, which has no cellular connection, only Wi-Fi, is that any game can be played offline. This means you can play your games according to your heart even if you are on the train or on the back of a car car.
The subscription will cost the same for individuals or a family of six and will be compatible with iPad, iPhone and Apple TV. I was not so excited about the iOS iOS 7 update. That's when Apple introduced a "flat" look of app icons. With iOS 13 this iswhich is my most awesome.
Honestly, what attracted my attention was simply the fact that dark mode would be a purposefully designed feature – not just– it just looks cool on screens.
Also, iOS 13 will also bringand editing options, as well as . Logging allows users to access apps and sites on their iPod Touch using AppleID instead of their email address that Apple says will prevent them from being tracked online and mercilessly targeted by ads.
AR gets more real
iPod touch will work with. This includes the iOS application that allows you to actually measure things in the real world by giving you a truly flexible digital ruler. With Pokemon Go or the upcoming and long awaited Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, is something that happens . And although I was not initially excited about it, the more useful applications I find, like Measure, the more I turn into a believer.
To be sure, you will need ato take advantage of some of the highest AR applications, but to simply measure and find Pokemon, the new iPod Touch can did it.
Bonus: He has a headphone jack. You can use a Bluetooth headset or plug your cable phones into this 3.5mm jack on the bottom edge, just like we did during the day.
You either like it or not, so I will not say more about it.
Or not. I mean, Touch is not for everyone. But it is cheap enough and offers enough up-to-date opportunities as well as some intelligent strategic future solutions to make it worth the money if you decide to take a step.
