The folks behind the YouTube channel EverythingApplePro have posted a new video showing a full comparison of the new iPod Touch 6th generation vs the 5th generation.
The video showcases the difference in speed, camera, battery life, and more. From a design standpoint, there are no major differences between the iPod Touch 6G and 5G. The most notable design change is the removal of the rear wrist strap holder.
As expected the 6th generation iPod Touch packs significant performance improvements over the 5th generation. Apps launch and close faster, animations are a lot smoother, and the overall responsiveness of the operating system is a lot better.
The iPod Touch 5th generation gets a single-core Geekbench score of 217 and a multi-core score of 416. In comparison, the 6th generation iPod Touch gets a single-core Geekbench score of 1387 and a multi-core score of 2452. This definitely shows the advancement in hardware when you wait three years to upgrade the device.
Here is the full video comparison of the 6th generation iPod Touch vs the 5th generation iPod Touch:
YouTuber Jonathan Morrison of TLD also posed a video comparison between the 5th and 6th generation iPod Touch.
Apple’s new iPod Touch, which features an A8 chip and 8 Megapixel iSight camera, starts at $199 and comes in brand new colours that match the colour scheme of the iPhone and iPad.
