September 1, 2010: Apple announces its fourth-generation iPod touch, a version of the portable music player which closes the gap between the iPod touch and the iPhone.
Along with being thinner than ever, the fourth-gen iPod touch’s main innovations include a redesigned form factor, Retina display, FaceTime calling via WiFi, HD video recording, and the same A4 chip found in the iPhone at the time.
iOS 10 is no small upgrade. It’s actually the biggest we’ve seen since the massive redesign that came with iOS 7 almost three years ago. But is it exciting enough?
Despite all the new features and improvements, iOS 10 doesn’t exactly bring anything groundbreaking. It’s not going to change the way you use your iPhone or your iPad, and it still doesn’t deliver some of the things fans have been calling for.
So, is iOS 10 enough to boost iPhone demand?
Join us in this week’s Friday Night Fight as we battle it out over Apple’s latest iOS upgrade.
You’re probably itching to get your hands on the new iOS 10 beta, but if you’re not a registered developer, that’s not easy. But it’s not impossible. Here’s how fans are downloading and installing iOS 10 months early!
Don’t you just hate having to pack a whole bunch of different cables when you go traveling? Here’s a tiny little adapter that can help by making your Nintendo 3DS compatible with Lightning, allowing you to charge it with your iPhone’s cable.
Nick Wellings listens to music on his iPhone, preferring not to disturb any one of his 108 iPods.
He figures his collection would hold 231,000 songs, but only one has ever been touched or seen the light of day. They remain factory sealed in their boxes.
The iPod’s status as an icon was brief but seismic, a sleek and at times colorful trigger of upheaval to the music industry in the middle of the century’s first decade. Soon the iPhone with a media player, that grew more powerful with each generation, relegated the iPod to junk drawers, closets and boxes, next to that cassette-tape-playing Sony Walkman.
The iPhone 7 is set to be a whole 1mm thinner than the iPhone 6s, according to a new report — making it the same 6.1mm thickness as the fifth-generation iPod touch.
Considering that the first generation iPhone was 11.6mm thick, this means that Apple will have successfully shaved off almost half the thickness of its slimline iPhone over the course of the handset’s lifecycle, should this rumor turn out to be true. That’s a pretty amazing statistic!
