Updating ipod touch
So if the update isn't showing up for you directly on your device and you just can't wait any longer to update, follow along to update the old fashioned way using i Tunes.
You'll need to make sure your device is capable of running i OS 6.
Apple hasn’t actively marketed i Pods in years, but the i Pod touch has served since 2007 as “training wheels for the i Phone” — a more affordable option with comparable storage but lower-end components and no cellular capabilities.
After Apple discontinued the i Pod shuffle and i Pod nano in 2017, the nearly four-year-old i Pod touch became the company’s only pocketable i Phone alternative, offering kids and budget-conscious adults a Wi-Fi-only computer capable of playing games, music, and videos, as well as running apps.
-- and you'll want to make sure you update in order to take advantage of all the new features i OS 6 has to offer.
While you can update over the air if you're already on i OS 5, you can also update via i Tunes.
It also keeps the same antiquated 4-inch screen and is stuck with an outdated Bluetooth 4.1 chip.
It does offer some support, however, for Apple’s pass-focused Wallet app.
Apple similarly bumped the i Pod’s processor up to a level below its top performers.
It will be in stores and shipping to customers by the end of this week.
