I love my new iPod touch. It’s light and travels well. Grant it, I love my phone but when you need to keep in touch via wifi and have your play lists plus stream music, it’s perfect. As for BH photo, you couldn’t ask for a better place to shop. I’ve been shopping with them for over 30 years. They are ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Great deal

A Good Music Machine

Yes, I know you can do music with an iphone/streaming etc. But after many years I've got a HUGE library of songs and playlists and I'm basically a prisoner to Apple iTunes when it comes to music. I limped along with a nano deleting songs to accommodate new ones. The ipod Touch is indeed pricy. But I'm not a streamer and prefer to own my music. This ipod Touch fits my Boomer music needs with bluetooth connections &and it's portability.

It's a small computer

I'm fascinated by my iPod Touch - a computer that easily fits in the hand. Just the right size for a digital companion. New A10 chip works pretty well. Works well for reading Kindle books, listening to podcasts and books, and of course listening to music. Many apps that work with the iPhone and iPad work on the iPod also.

I'm looking for a device that isn't a smartphone, but will play music and send photos to an Instax printer. I think a Samsung device will, but will this?
Asked by: William
As long as your printer has an app on the iOS store yes this will work.

I have a 2012 iMac w Mohave 10.14.6 and iTunes 12.9.5.5. Can I sync this iPod Touch using iTunes app tied to the iMac. Or, does the Touch require stuff moved into Apple Music?
