Amidst all the hype regarding the next iteration of the iPhone – purported iPhone 6S and the overwhelming response from fans regarding Apple’s venture into the music streaming service with Apple Music, the company made a rather, low key announcement of the Apple iPod – the product which was assumed almost dead for many years now. Apple has stated that the new range of iPods a up-to-date with today’s technology and include many new features capabilities.
The 6th generation iPod is here, but do you really care?
Today, when your smartphone paired with a high speed internet holds the key access to almost everything, including a wide range of music from all over the world, will consumers be keen to purchase a separate audio device all over again?
We take a look a few pointers on how, Apple’s revamped iPod from grave makes almost no sense to a consumer:
1. Apple doesn’t care, why should you?
In terms of a few prominent specifications, the new iPod comes with an 8MP camera along with an A8 processor but these do not seem enough to match the power of the new iPhones. To think, if Apple was revamping one of its most famous devices and giving it a shiny comeback in the 21st century, it should have left no stone unturned.

Also, what’s most fancy about the device is the way it has been designed and given colour. But for the new iPod, Apple has adopted a pretty basic standard colour scheme (silver, space gray) which honestly, does not seem very appealing to the eye. They have added a mere two simple colour variants – bright blue and pink. The Cult Of Mac referred to the new iPod update as ‘extremely half-baked’.
