Reasons To Buy an iPhone 6S Instead Of iPhone 8 or iPhone X

iPhone 6S is one of the mobile phones the longest lived especially among Apple’s products. Apple usually offers only the previous model iPhone when it announces a new model; however, in this case something seems to change. From 6S to iPhone 8 and iPhone X, all models are now available on Apple’s official website. But, now comes up a question: Which model to buy? This time we will be more on side of iPhone 6S.

Here’s why you should consider buying the iPhone 6S instead of the iPhone 8 or iPhone X.

The price of iPhone 6S

It should go without saying that Apple’s older iPhones are going to be cheaper than its new ones.

Here’s what the new iPhones cost:

iPhone 8 with 64 GB of storage: $700.

iPhone 8 Plus with 64 GB of storage: $800.

iPhone X with 64 GB of storage: $1,000.

However, Apple is still selling the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus for significantly less than the new iPhones:

iPhone 6S with 32 GB of storage: $450.

iPhone 6S Plus with 32 GB of storage: $550.

Excellent Design

iPhone 6S has an excellent design – and you’ll find comfort in knowing that the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus look nearly identical to the new iPhone 8 models. Both the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 8 have the same size of bezels around the display and same overall shape, and their screens are the same size and same resolution.

Apple added improvements to the iPhone 8’s and iPhone X’s screens, including TrueTone, which adjusts the overall color temperature to match the lighting in your surrounding, and a wide color gamut for richer colors.

At the same time, the screen on the iPhone 6S is still excellent. The screen on that phone has the same sharpness and resolution as the new iPhone 8, and it reproduces colors just fine for browsing the web, using apps, watching videos, looking at photos, and playing games.

Have you heard of Apple’s Next Smartphone: iPhone 9

September means Apple’s yearly Keynote, unveiling of every feature and bringing all those marvelous designs finally to our attention. We can’t stop waiting for this moment of reveal like parents locking their eyes to the ultrasound screen. We wonder how our baby will look like in the next generation release, or how smart it could get. And we finally have been informed and are ready to get excited for the next year’s Keynote.

However, there’s already been speculations on next generation iPhone 9 (the name naturally remains unclear) just after the release of the 8th generation and iPhone X. We have to wait a whole year to know if these news are totally true, but we love hints and rumours about every Apple product, and talking won’t cost a penny to Apple’s big fan family.

Each iPhone Has A Unique Design

Alongside the delicious technological innovations, every iPhone outstands in the market with their unique design. So while iPhone 8 and X now got even better, we can expect ‘too much’ of the next generation product.

First of all, there’s an expectation about Super Retina Display, the feature Apple introduced this year in iPhone X, will also be built in the regular series which will take the screen experience marvelously beyond for each group of users. If Apple’s gonna use the same frameless style of iPhone X for their iPhone 9, it means the consecutive screen design having started with iPhone 6 will come to an end as well.

It’s also said that Apple is considering choosing Full Active LCD Panels by Japan Display over OLED screens as the cost value significantly differs which convinces Apple more easily. Moreover, the next generation iPhone could come in 3 different sizes: 5,28, 5,85 and 6,46 inches. But the 5.3-inch model is said to have been cancelled so we’re left with only two screen sizes but the biggest ones so far.

One way to be sure is of course waiting for the year 2018! We hope refinement in battery life and stronger performance as well but that’s usually realised in every generation. Last but not least, Face ID along with already featured Touch ID could be mind blowing.

Analysis Reveals that Apple Does Not Slow Down Older iPhones on purpose

For a while, it has been said that Apple encourages its customers to buy new Apple devices by releasing software updates. To test if the speculation is much or less close to reality, Futuremark, a benchmarking company has collected data since 2016 from seven different iPhone models and three different versions of iOS. 100.000 results were collected during the process, in which each of the three versions were uploaded to and tested on each of the seven versions of iPhone devices. As explained in the following, the outcome of the analysis is not really consistent with the speculation.

iPhone 5S, the oldest one with iOS 11

The first set of data collected from iPhone 5S, which is the oldest iPhone that can run iOS 11. iPhone 5S is also known for being the first iPhone model that has a A7 as CPU and 64 bit chip. It is observed that, iPhone 5S has improved in terms of GPU after the software updates, although the opposite would be the expected observation.

On the other hand, regarding CPU, the device has reflected some decrease in performance. Additionally, performance of the devices do not really show a significant difference when İos9 and İos11 are compared. Other iPhones, iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, and iPhone 7, are seem to have had some decrease in performance as they are being updated, but again, not a significant amount.

At the end of the evaluation, Futuremark officially said that their test results show that there is no relation between the speculation and the reality, moreover the performances of iPhones were not going downwards that much as they are being updated.

Additionally, it is necessary to know that test environment can be different than the Daily life usage. It is arguable that we do not have any information if user’s real time experience was considered during tests.

iPhone 8 Plus Has A Huge Battery Problem! What Will Apple Do Now?

Last year we have witnessed that Samsung suffered a lot from the explosion of Galaxy Note 7 due to a battery problem. This incident, which is one of Samsung’s biggest bottlenecks, is now Apple’s. A problem with the iPhone 8 Plus causes the battery to swell and the back of the phone to come out.

Anthony Wu bought a new iPhone 8 Plus in Toronto, Canada on Sunday. But then, had to return the device until Monday because is a defective battery that swells on the iPhone and creates pressure on the back cover. At least five separate reports of the new 5.5in iPhone 8 Plus smartphones have shown deformed phones, swelled batteries and screens being detached from the aluminum bodies of the devices.

Apple looks for solution

An Apple spokesperson said the company was looking into the issues. Some of the devices were reportedly collected by mobile phone operator partners for investigation. With millions of iPhones coming off the production line overseas, and thereby millions of lithium-ion batteries being manufactured, it’s common in the industry for there to be a very low percentage of defective units.

As we’ve mentioned before, Apple has a team of engineers who are uniquely tasked with monitoring problems that arise from some of the first batch of iPhones off the production line. That being the case, it stands to reason that some of the impacted iPhone models are already back at Apple headquarters being examined by engineers.

Are iOS 11 and iPhone 8 failure?

Apple has released two updates to iOS 11 since it was first made available on September 19. The first update, iOS 11.0.1, went some way to fixing the battery problems. The analysis showed a 65 per cent improvement in the update, with a battery decay time of 159 minutes, as opposed to 96 minutes.

The iPhone 8 Plus might have some fancy camera tricks up its sleeve, but is it really worth buying its bulky frame ahead of its sleeker rivals or the potential of the iPhone X?

Is iPhone A Good Choice For You and Which iPhone To Buy?

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus finally took their place in stores. However the audience waiting for the new iPhone to change the phone is facing a serious dilemma because there is an iPhone X on the horizon and it is not far away.

Which iPhone is a good choice for you? Is the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus the classic sequel or is it iPhone X, which is introduced as the future of smart phones and offers more than a standard improvement? This dilemma is Apple’s problem as well as the new iPhone users.

How does Apple manage this dilemma?

Some of the users wait 1-2 years to replace their current iPhone with the latest iPhone version. But there is also another group of users that do not hesitate to wait for 2-3 years until the device’s battery life runs out.

Apple taught iPhone users to expect for a “new and familiar” blend of upgrades. Many people say that they will buy the familiar iPhone 8, despite what the iPhone X will offer. We will see if Apple’s iPhone X will make more than complicating the iPhone product line. But no one doubts that iPhone 8 will have a huge sales success.

iPhone X or iPhone 8

Many tech-savvy people expect the iPhone 8, but they plan to buy an iPhone X as soon as possible as many features on the iPhone 8 Plus are also available on the iPhone X despite the smaller size. If your hands are small for using the iPhone 8 Plus, the iPhone X is just for you.

Some of us want the iPhone X, and some of us are looking to continue on the road with the familiar and new iPhone 8. In either case, Apple is winning. That’s why Apple’s decision to announce three new phones at once will be good for Apple. It’s obvious that Apple will occupy the scene for smart phones this fall.

Will iOS 11 speed up iPhones?

Apple released iOS 11.1 beta 1 with minor improvements and performance improvements shortly after iOS 11.01 update. How did this update affect the performance of iPhones?

Apple released iOS 11 a week after the fall event. This update, which includes many innovations, brought along the mistakes. For this reason, the company that is using iOS 11.01 started testing iOS 11.1, which is expected to be a more stable version. Test videos showing the performance of the new iOS release on the first public beta of the iPhone models have been released.

Battery life of iPhones with iOS 11

Users who have not had a major battery performance problem in iOS 11 betting have begun to report that they are experiencing serious problems with the final version. On some devices it has been seen that the usage time for iOS 10.3.3 has decreased by half. Focusing on this issue, Apple wants to stop the complaints from users with the first major update of iOS 11.

The internet is congested with conflicting tips and tricks to maximize daily battery life, so it’s a little messy trying to figure out what’s what, especially now that there’s iOS 11 with the possibility of new battery-draining features to fix.

What if battery problem bothers you?

If you just updated your iPhone to iOS 11, give it a few days to fully reindex and cache everything before you start freaking out. Things should normalize after a day or two, or even less time, so just give it a little time. If you cannot really get rid of the problem until Apple offers a useful one, there some other options you can do.

We’re all annoyed whenever an app requests notifications. But what’s more annoying is that these notifications are taking away valuable battery life. Go to Settings –> Notifications to browse all of your apps and see which have notifications enabled. When you find one you’d like to turn off, simply tap on it, then toggle off Allow Notifications to disable notifications.

Price Comparison: A Guide To Buy iPhone

Which is the best iPhone for you? iPhone SE, iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus… Or should you buy the new iPhone X (or iPhone 8 or iPhone 7s, iPhone 7SE) that have started to be introduced in the fall of 2017 instead of buying the iPhone now? We will help you to make the right decision in our iPhone purchasing guide.

Apple just announced new iPhone X in September. There were various rumors about the name of this iPhone: and it came up as iPhone X (iPhone Ten). You can find various articles about the other 2017 iPhone on our site: iPhone 8

We will make a quick comparison as soon as possible considering that the long scripts will fit you.

Smartphone Models of iPhone

On September 7, 2016, Apple introduced iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The iPhone SE, the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus are still in the market and continue to sell intensively. Apple official store does not sell iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 5s models. But it is still possible to buy these models from shopping sites.

What should we pay attention to when comparing iPhone models?

In comparison we had to set some criteria such as:

  • Price
  • Colour options
  • Screen size
  • Performance
  • Capacity
  • Camera quality
  • Battery / Battery capacity

The prices of latest models in USA:

iPhone 8 64 GB: $ 699.00

iPhone 8 256 GB: $ 849.00

iPhone 8 Plus 64 GB: $ 799.00

iPhone 8 Plus 256 GB: $ 949.00

iPhone X 64 GB: $ 999.00

iPhone X 256 GB: $ 1149.00

Capacity selection depends on your usage habits. If you regularly back up, 64 GB capacity will not be a problem. Considering older models of 16 GB, 64 GB is pretty huge capacity. It is possible to say that it is sufficient value unless you store a lot of video.

It is also important to know how long your charge will survive. But there is not a single answer to this question, unfortunately. Each application consumes energy differently and every person has different usage habits.

Tim Cook Thinks The Price For iPhone X Is Not Very High

With a price tag of $999, the iPhone X is the most expensive iPhone we have ever seen. So, how does Apple’s CEO Tim Cook interpret this high price? For the iPhone X, which is the most expensive iPhone ever produced, Tim Cook has commented on the price! According to Tim Cook, the price is quite normal.

iPhone X from Tim Cook’s Perspective

Tim Cook was the guest on ABC News in the US and answered the question via Twitter about the price of iPhone X: Isn’t the $999 iPhone X a little pricey for a lot of people? According to Tim Cook:

“Most people are now paying for phones over long periods of time. And so very few people will pay the price tag of the phone initially. Also most people actually trade in their current phone, and so that reduces the price further, and some carriers even throw in subsidies and discounts.”

tim cook iphone x price

Apparently, according to Tim Cook, the price of the iPhone X is not particularly expensive when it comes to specially designed campaigns and technology.

The price for the future of smartphones

In addition to the base $999 iPhone X, Apple is selling a 256GB version for $1,149. That makes the iPhone X the most expensive smartphone Apple has ever sold. As opposed to the analysis of many people, Apple obviously thinks that the iPhone X deserves the price as it is the “future” of smartphones.

Tim Cooks says, “When we look at it, the iPhone in particular has become so essential in our daily lives, people want it to do more and more, so we’ve built more and more technology in to be able to do it.”

At the end of the day, in case when the majority finds the iPhone X is overpriced, this approach will be reflected in underwhelming sales.

Apple Watch Series 3 With Built-in Cellular, Powerful Enhancements

Although everybody have been talking about iPhone X lately, Apple announced also other amendments in their products and Apple Watch Series 3 is one of them.

Apple today announced that they added built-in cellular to the world’s number one watch,namely Watch Series 3. Disregarding where you are, Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular allows you to stay connected, make calls, receive texts and more. For all these features, you will not even need an iPhone nearby.

Advanced Technology in Apple Watch

The latest generation of Apple Watch is not only attractive by the trendy design but also has an attraction with its advanced technology. Watch users can make cellular calls directly with Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) and, when paired with AirPods, enjoy a seamless and fully wireless experience. Considering wireless charging (hopefully) of iPhones, it seems company works hard on wires – to get rid of them!

Apple also pioneered an industry-first antenna design that uses the display itself as both a transmitting and receiving element for LTE and UMTS, while introducing a built-in eSIM that is over one-hundredth the size of a traditional SIM card, making over-the-air activation possible without compromising space.

Listen to your favorite playlist on watch

watchOS 4 offers a redesigned Music app and new Radio app to enable users listen to their favorite playlists whenever and wherever they want. The brand knows how to attract their customers. The redesigned Music app experience automatically syncs playlists like New Music Mix and Favorites Mix, along with the user’s most listened to music. Later this fall, Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) will stream music, giving users access to any song from Apple Music, straight from the wrist.

Thousands Of Applications Will Not Work On iOS 11!

While the date to release Apple’s new iOS 11 is approaching, most of the hundreds of thousands of incompatible apps have been removed from the App Store. So why are these applications incompatible with iOS 11?

Apple unveiled iOS 11 in June of 2017 during its Worldwide Developer Conference, releasing the first developer beta the same day. As Apple announced their users with iOS 10.3, iOS 11 officially gives up support for 32-bit applications. Any 32-bit app will not be launched and older iPhones and iPads with 32-bit CPUs cannot update to iOS 11 at all.

Apple describes its latest mobile OS as:

iOS 11 sets a new standard for what is already the world’s most advanced mobile operating system. It makes iPhone better than before. It makes iPad more capable than ever. And now it opens up both to amazing possibilities for augmented reality in games and apps. With iOS 11, iPhone and iPad are the most powerful, personal, and intelligent devices they’ve ever been.

Apple continues to remove incompatible applications from the App Store, as the 7th beta version was released in the past days along with the preparations for the upcoming release of iOS 11. Let’s take a look at the steps Apple is now taking in the process of finalizing 32-bit application support.

ios 11 - applications

 

Many apps, not compatible with iOS 11!

According to Oliver Yeh, founder of the analyst firm Sensor Tower, 187,000 apps on the App Store have 32-bit apps, which make up about 8% of all iPhone apps. Since June, most of the 32-bit apps in the App Store are being removed, only users with app link can access them.

If you do not have a 64-bit version of an app you use often, you should not update your phone to iOS 11 or expect the developer to post a new version. However, it is important to remember that Apple will eventually remove 32-bit applications completely from the App Store.

For the Mac, Apple told developers that macOS High Sierra would be the last version of its desktop operating system to support 32-bit apps ‘without compromises’.

The iPhone 8 Will Recognize Your Face Instantly and Here Is How

The face recognition technology, which is supposed to take the place of the Touch ID fingerprint recognition on iPhone 8, will be seriously quick and efficient. The face recognition technology of the Apple iPhone 8 smartphones has been suggested to work seriously fast. Looking at the statement made by Samsung about the OLED screens produced for the iPhone 8, the face recognition measurement will be done at a millionth of a second.

How will Phone 8 face recognition technology work?

According to the recent information, the Touch ID fingerprint identification technology will be abandoned on the iPhone 8 model, and will be switched to face recognition technology to authorize unlocking and Apple Pay. For user satisfaction Apple must offer this technology in a way that works flawlessly.

iPhone 8 Face Recognition
iPhone 8 Face Recognition

This new face recognition scanner with 3D sensors will detect the face of the user in depth and will do it for as little as a million of a second. On the other hand, the source of this information is not given. This facial recognition system is not thought to have been produced by Samsung, but it is likely that the company has knowledge of the entire screen assembly.

The Wall Street Journal says the system will use infrared and work on it in both dark and low light conditions. Depth sensing technology, often referred to as structured light, sprinkles thousands of tiny infra-red dots to one’s face or any other target. By reading the distortions in this point area, the camera obtains super consistent depth of knowledge. These infrared points are said to be a system that allows only the smartphone camera to see, not the people, and allows the phone to be opened even in the dark.

Price comparison for iPhone 8

We will inform you considering the price comparison of iPhone 8 as soon as the information is shared officially. This face recognition technology may be a factor to increase the prices for iPhone 8.

Is There A Chance For The $1,000 iPhone 8 To Be Sold?

According to rumors, the iPhone 8 is expected to be around $1000. Will the device, which will be the most expensive iPhone produced to date, be bought by consumers?

The iPhone 8 will officially be introduced next month. Until today, it is expected that the phone will be between $ 1000 and $ 1200 as known from the leaked data. So the question of “will customers-to-be be attracted enough to pay this price for iPhone 8?” arises. Let’s have a look at the results of a survey.

The phone may be of low interest

According to survey results conducted by Barclays, only 11% of respondents said they would get an iPhone worth a thousand dollars. Many of the respondents want a cash price of around $582 or a plan to pay $48 for 12 month.

iphone-8-price

Of course, we have to consider that the results of this survey do not reflect. But the high price tag will be an important point for consumers in every way. In the meantime, there are some situations for investors not to worry for the time being. For example, the iPhone 7s models, which are expected to be introduced along with the iPhone 8 models, can achieve a successful sales figure.

Finally, the “iPhone Upgrade” program, which Apple carries out to upgrade consumers to the new iPhone, can lead to successful sales of the product despite the high price tag.

The definitive iPhone 8 features

The frameless iPhone 8 design with the images shared by Benjamin Geskin for the first time in April was confirmed by HomePod software. According to the feature details revealed through the HomePod software, the Face ID feature will work so well that it can quickly perform facial recognition even when the device is on the table (without affecting viewpoint).

Troughton-Smith confirmed that the status bar on iPhone 8 would look like it looks.

HomePod software also revealed the camera details of the iPhone 8. Accordingly, both the front and back of the iPhone 8 will shoot 60 FPS 4K videos. Apple has made an important camera development with iPhone 7 Plus. With the iPhone 8, we can say that Apple is playing the summit considering the camera.

Feature of Facial Recognition in iPhone 8 Goes Beyond The Expectation

iPhone 8 has already become very popular thanks to the rumors before the launch of the new device. New information has been released about the innovations that will be introduced with the iPhone 8. How much is iPhone 8? What are the best features of iPhone 8? This time Apple seems to have worked hard for the iPhone 8 in terms of facial recognition features. The features that Apple will offer along with iPhone 8 continue to evolve as the HomePod firmware’s codes are reviewed. The last detail is about the iPhone 8 facial recognition features.

Powerful facial recognition

Developer Guilherme Rambo shared on the Twitter account what the iPhone 8 can do with face detection. Accordingly, iPhone 8 will be able to provide authorization for Apple Pay payments with face identification. Moreover, it is possible to record more than one face, such as in Touch ID Technology, and to access third party applications with this new layer of security.

Considering the Pearl code name that Apple uses for facial recognition in iPhone 8, the string “numerofAppsUsingPearl” in a line of code references indicates that third-party applications will also be able to access the facial recognition function, and that can take place of passwords. In this sense, the facial recognition was formed with the expectation that the Touch ID could take its place completely. In addition, it is foreseen that both front and rear cameras may have the face recognition feature.

The price of iPhone 8

From the Apple HomePod firmware software to the present, the iPhone 8 design, infrared-based face detection features, split status bar, touch screen wake-up and new SmartCamera functions and much more. One another thing that matters about the phone is the price of iPhone 8. So, how much will iPhone 8 be priced. As far as we know, it will be priced between $850 and $1,200 in the US.

Now Apple has yet to confirm any of these. So we can say that these are just assumptions. How exactly it will be implemented remains to be seen, but hopefully Apple will have something official for us soon.

iPhone 7 Is Apparently The Most Popular Model

Apple is always attracting so many people all over the world with iPhones, iPads, MacBooks and so on. Now, let’s talk about iPhone models. According to a recent study, iPhone 7 is the most popular model of Apple users. What does the study tells us more?

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus accounted for 81% of all U.S. iPhone sales during the three-month period ending July 1, with a reference to Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP). Individually, the iPhone 7 accounted for 47% of total Apple smartphone sales while the iPhone 7 Plus accounted for 34%.

These numbers are quite better than older iPhone models. The CIRP data indicates that during the same quarter in 2016, when was iPhone 6S was the latest model, 34% of iPhones sold were older models. In this latest quarter, just 19% of iPhone sales were legacy versions. This is huge!

“With lengthening upgrade cycles and a growing percentage of owners with the most recently released models, continued platform switching will be important to the success of the next iPhones,” CIRP partner and co-founder Josh Lowitz said.

iPhone 7’s best features making the phone chosen by Apple users are mostly, design, power, display, storage, battery life, camera and so on.

iOS 10.3.3 Is Available Now: What is New?

Apple completed the testing process for iOS 10.3.3, bringing the final version to users. So what does iOS 10.3.3 offer to iPhone and iPad users? Apple had released the very first beta update for iOS 10.3.3, right after iOS 10.3.2, which it released in May.

The brand offered six beta forms in about two months, and at last they are done with the testing procedure and iOS 10.3.3 is now available for iPhone and iPad users. The new iOS version, which comes with an update of about 140 MB, offers minor enhancements compared to iOS 10.3.2. It apparently focuses on overall error correction and security updates as opposed to new features. The only innovation coming with this version is three wallpapers that are special to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

iPhone and iPad users can install iOS 10.3.3 by following Settings> General> Software Update, or using iTunes.


Should You Upgrade To iOS 10.3.3?

Apple iOS 10.3.3 might be little however it is vital. The security fixes are important and it has no major new bugs, at any rate none which have so far ended up being more than segregated occurrences.

The flipside is iOS 10.3.3 releases rather excessively numerous bugs, particularly on the off chance that it is (not surprisingly) the last arrival of iOS 10. iPhone 5, iPad 4 and sixth era iPod touch clients will be baffled to be left with these forever.


What is Next?

By and by I have a sneaking doubt Apple may even now push out iOS 10.3.4, however there is right now no indication of it in beta testing and discharges typically cover.

All discussion now will concentrate on iOS 11. With a vigorously upgraded iPhone 8 propelling close by it, iOS 11 changes both how iPads work and is required to convey an all new Function Area for iPhones – whether all models get the last mentioned, be that as it may, will be worth viewing.

Does Apple Re-Offer Nostalgic iPod Mini On Online Store?

Apple made a surprise for their long-term users with reappearance of nostalgic iPod on Apple’s website in Singapore. iPod minis, that Apple stopped producing 12 years ago, were available to ship in 2 or 3 weeks. There was no upgrade, the device was as it was released in February 2005 – with color alternatives of blue, green, pink and silver and storage alternatives of 4GB and 6 GB. This is second-generation models of iPod born in 2005, nothing younger.

iPod minis’ life was a pretty short one, lasting until the appearance of iPod nano in September 2005. And, in the same way, its second appearance lasted very short (like a few hours this time), too.

What is the real news about iPod?

Actually, iPod mini felt like an illusion, on the other hand removal of iPod nano and iPod shuffle from the official website and online store around the world is a real thing. For now, it appears the iPod nano and iPod shuffle are still available to purchase at many Apple Stores and other resellers, but that likely won’t be the case for too much longer. From now on, iPod touch continues its way on its own with two different storage alternatives of 32GB and 128 GB and color alternatives of space gray, blue, gold, pink and silver.

The last update for iPod nano was in 2012 and iPod shuffle in 2010, while iPod touch was updated in July 2016 with an A8 chip and an 8-megapixel rear camera.

A8 chip, 8MP iSight camera, 5 stunning colors.

Here is how Apple mentions iPod touch in the official website:

To enhance your music experience even more, Apple Music is available on your iPod touch, right in the Music app.


Whether you like fast-paced action, amazingly detailed strategy games, or beautifully intricate puzzles, iPod touch offers the ultimate mobile gaming experience.


This desktop-class chip features GPU performance up to 10 times faster than the previous-generation iPod touch — so the graphics in your favorite games are more responsive and look more vivid than ever before — and CPU performance is up to six times faster. And you get the same great battery life, with up to 40 hours of music and 8 hours of video playback

Research Reveals: Windows Users Seem To Switch To Mac Soon

According to the research of U.S. computer owners, 21% of Windows laptop users are planning to switch to Mac soon, while just 2% of Mac owners say that they will use Windows.

In the next 6 – 24 months, many Windows users seem to buy a Mac. We can categorize these people as those with their high income brackets (around $150k plus), those with lower earnings in their teens and twenties with a possibility of increasing income. These detail are not surprising considering Apple’s modern and cool products.

A comparison: Mac vs Windows

The question of “should I prefer Mac or Windows?” lasts for many years across the world. Both sides have many advantages and disadvantages.

Mac has offered various innovative designs such as MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro etc since the first design of iMac in 1998. What remains the same with Apple products is the simple and cool design. On the other hand, Windows was not known to be a “nice-looking” technology until recent past. Now, there are ultra-slim and simple-designed devices for Windows as manufacturers have realized that people do not like wild and wacky devices.

One of the best things about Windows devices at the moment is that they offer such variety to users: gaming rigs, ultra slim models, devices that converts to and from a tablet and PC. These options makes Window attractive for a wide range of users, while Mac has a more limited audience. But the truth is that Macs come equipped with nearly everything you need for normal, consumer-level computing.

For years OS X and Windows have been over the same ground for long years. But since Windows 8 Microsoft has been taking its platform into new realms, incorporating touch and speech as significant factors.

So we can conclude as Mac to be a more compact and user friendly device while Windows is for multi purpose. You are the one to choose.
