I agree with this as well. It's a great way to get people into the Apple ecosystem, who are otherwise using a Samsung phone. What surprises me the most about the timing of this update is that they didn't wait until the 6S was released, and then released a 4.7" iPod Touch, which I'm sure gamers would love. The 4.7" screen is a long way from cannibalizing sales from the iPad mini. The 5.5" screen might create a dilemma, but it's still more portable for those for whom that's...
 I don't see any reason why the iPod Touch can't be paired to an Watch, or use Pay for that matter. The iPhone 5 can pair to an Watch, yet, it neither possess a Touch ID, nor an NFC chip. From what I've been able to discern, it's the A5 chip in the 4S and iPod Touch that limits them from it. Likewise, there's no reason not to offer it on the iPad platform, and eventually the Mac -- including Pay to allow online purchases through those devices, even if they can't make...
No, the shuffle is still a valuable item for many people, as a tiny portable device they can wear while working out, or running, etc. without having to strap a phone on their arm, or otherwise lug it around, or just get away from it for an hour. The nano is the way to offer additional storage. I see the Watch eventually replacing the nano at a similar price point, assuming Apple's continues to offer last years model at a reduced price the way they do with the iPhone. But...
I agree. But I guess Apple didn't want to introduce an option on the iPod Touch before they offered it on the iPhone. I doubt we'll see 256GB on the 6S now, but maybe the 7. 
What does that have to do with anything? There are iPads which aren't always connected with Touch ID. I have a 5S which does not have Pay and I don't know how I lived without Touch ID before it. So much so, that every time I pick up my iPad 3G, I press the home button and leave my finger there waiting for it to unlock, until I realize I have to enter my 4-digit code. It's frustrating enough that I'm contemplating upgrading to a new iPad with Touch ID even though my iPad...
You underestimate the importance of that convenience.I have a 5S which does not have Pay and I don't know how I lived without Touch ID before it. So much so, that every time I pick up my iPad 3G, I press the home button and leave my finger there waiting for it to unlock, until I realize I have to enter my 4-digit code. It's frustrating enough that I'm contemplating upgrading to a new iPad with Touch ID even though my iPad 3G is still perfectly functional and does...
Taylor Swift is a co-owner of Big Machine. Her voice is the same as the labels.
Presumably the iPod Touch could address the market the iPod Classic abandoned last year. If Apple offered a 256GB model, that would address the 160GB storage capacity while leaving more than enough for the OS, and apps. I bet the thing would more than make up for the added expense for that group of users alone. 
It took me a minute, but I don't completely disagree with you.In some respects it is like the old Microsoft case, while not being free, it's still at a reduced cost over what the competition can offer. If Apple charges $10 and Spotify charges $13 to make up the fees Apple imposes then they're still operating at a loss/disadvantage to compete with Apple, free or not. And the whole thing is a lot like the Microsoft Surface, which allows MS to bundle their own software at no...
The shuffle still serves an important market for Apple, it's both an entry product for iTunes, and a mobile music player for all manner of activities. I see the Watch eventually replacing it as the prices come down. On the other hand, as a hard-wired product it doesn't serve Apple's push for streaming music services. It's also the last Apple mobile product that doesn't use a lightning connector. I'd like to see Apple add a Bluetooth radio for wireless transfer from the...
