While my Classic is still ticking away with no problems whatsoever, I know that it's going to die someday. I am considering on putting the 128GB iPod Touch on my long-term shopping list to replace my Classic with when that day comes. Would that be a worthwhile investment? I know that iPod modding is definitely a thing, and there are tons of modding-related posts where people have swapped out their hard drives with SSDs or SD card readers. However, modding isn't really for me, hence this possibility. My music library is around 100GB, so I'm confident it'll fit the Touch. The Touch also won't be used for anything else BUT music. I don't mind having no access to Apple Music because I don't have a subscription anyway. Off the top of my head as to benefits and drawbacks based on my experience with a 4G iPod Touch and a number of iPhones: Benefits: - More versatility with headphones - Bluetooth, Lightning (Lightning headphones or DACs/amps), regular headphones - Non-obsolete (yet) or wireless connection for syncing with iTunes - Choice of third-party music player app (Cesium comes to mind) Drawbacks: - Touchscreen ==> no more blind swiping or pressing other than volume control - Shorter battery life per full charge Anything else I'm not taking into consideration? Or should I say "screw this" and look at non-Apple alternatives?
