Apple is releasing its first iPod in 4 years

NEW YORK (CNN) — Apple is releasing its first new iPod in four years.

The 2019 edition of the iPod touch runs on the Apple-designed A10 Fusion chip, which the company says makes the iPod run twice as fast as before.

The latest iPod touch can also support group FaceTime calls and augmented reality, and will support the upcoming game subscription service “Apple Arcade.”

Apple says the device costs as low as $199.

It’s available to order on the Apple store and apple.com, and will start appearing in stores later this week.

Back in 2008, apple sold more than 55 million iPods.

But the tech giant stopped releasing iPod sales figures in 2013, and the device is no longer prominently featured on the company’s website and Apple stores.

Yet, the iPod remains popular to those seeking an inexpensive alternative to iPhones or iPads.
