Amazon this week has introduced the first major discount on Apple's latest iPod touch. You can get the 32GB iPod touch in Silver for $179.00, down from $199.00. At $20 off, this is the lowest price we've seen for the new iPod touch, and it beats the current $199.00 price tag found at other major Apple resellers like Best Buy and B&H Photo.

After several years of waiting, Apple updated the iPod touch in May 2019 with an A10 Fusion chip that offers improved gameplay, support for Group FaceTime, and augmented reality abilities. Otherwise, the new iPod touch looks the same as its predecessor, with an aluminum shell, 4-inch display, and body that features a Home button but no Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

Prices start at $199 for 32GB of storage, then increase to $299 for 128GB, and $399 for 256GB, the last of which is a new storage tier for the 2019 models. There are currently no sales on the larger storage capacities that can be found online.

Head to Amazon before the iPod touch deal expires, and then visit our own Deals Roundup to stay updated on all of the newest Apple-related bargains.

Well, it might not make calls but it still has a headphone jack. Might be worth picking up at this price.

The 5th gen is still being sold by Apple’s refurbished section at a much lower price. It has better case design with the loop and more beautiful colors, but only supports to iOS 9. :confused:

I can’t see any reason to buy an iPod touch. It’d be interesting to know who uses such devices. Maybe kids?

It's still the cheapest way to get iOS, and yes, a perfect device for kids, especially with the advent of Apple Arcade. I know some people buy them for dedicated reasons too, like as a music portal or universal remote.

I’ve read that they are popular with some companies. Same thing with iPad Minis.

They are used a lot in retail as scanning devices, I’ve also seen them being used to scan tickets at concerts and sporting events. I’m guessing it didn’t get a redesign to to keep it compatible with such devices.

Kids? Plenty of adults use the iPod touch, I I see them in the gym all the time (5 days a week), they’re lightweight and small enough where they’re not obtrusive like larger smart phones are today. They are popular with a younger demographic, because they’re cheaper and they don’t require a cellular plan. But the seventh iPod with the A10 Fusion is quick and responsive, at least that’s the model I’m using.

I still use my iPod touch, it is perfect for media consumption and playing music at parties without having to hand my cellphone. It is smaller and I carry it to the gym. It also somehow allows me to have all the content without draining my iPhone’s battery.

I've got one I use as a remote for Homekit devices and such. It makes guest access a bit more comfortable.

They're pretty capable devices, the only real limitation is the display.

My 6th gen... iOS 11 destroyed the battery INSTANTLY day 1 of the update. Apple charged me $100 for a replacement battery that again swelled and destroyed the screen after 8 months.

I loved it but I'm done.

Not to mention that $400 is twice as much as I'd ever pay for the 256Gig version
