Be warned that this device is very slow, there is a horrible overall lag that gets very annoying.


What do people use the iPod touch for any more?
I use iPod touch for music at gatherings so that I don't have to handle my cellphone or computer to anyone or having to constantly disconnect to allow someone else to connect and play their music.

I also prefer using the iPod touch for workouts and to play music in my car.

It is also the device I hand to my little nephews and nieces when I visit, they would bug you until you let them play with it.

It's a perfect small iOS device for kids who aren't ready for a cell phone. Think 9-12 year olds. IMO, if they can treat that device well (i.e. not loose it, not drop it, not visit sites they shouldn't) then we can discuss cell phones. :)

If I go for a hike, and want to listen to music, I'd much rather have my iPod touch with me than my rather large iPhone 11 Pro Max.

If you want something for younger kids or just want a small, lightweight music player to take on runs, walks and other activities this is perfect. As phones get larger the iPod Touch seems really small.

But why spend $275 for an iPod Touch when you can get a used iPhone 7 off Swappa for under $200 with the same A10 processor, 128GB storage, and have a larger screen? Just don't activate it.

Bonus: spare iPhone in case of emergency
