It’s one thing for Apple to announce a new iPhone. We expect a new one each year. It was a whole other scenario when, this past May, Apple decided to release an updated version of the iPod Touch. Sure, it was the product’s first update in about four years and came with a processor that put it on par with the iPhone 7 — but it still left more than a few people wondering just who would buy an iPod Touch, as opposed to an iPhone or an iPad (or virtually anything else). But then, another conversation started, one that included parents and business owners who were excited about a new iPod Touch. Despite over 900 million people around the world using iPhones, there are plenty of parents who want a device without cell service to give to their child, and journalists who use the iPod Touch to record audio and as a second screen that isn’t another cellphone.

As smartphone owners, we live in the age of apps where there’s truly an app for any scenario you can think of. That also means most of us have more apps we can keep track of.
