Apple has officially made the announcement of a brand new iPod, the first to be released in four years.

According to NME, this new version of the famed music device will release in the form of the seventh generation iPod Touch. This new version is reported to run twice as fast as its previous model, through the power of a new, A10 Fusion chip. The official Apple website delves into the features of this chip, explaining its impact. “The A10 Fusion chip brings up to twice the performance and three times better graphics to the new iPod touch2 — while still delivering great battery life. It powers augmented reality games and apps. And it makes everything you do feel faster and more fluid.”

Two years ago, Apple limited its iPod offerings, by discontinuing the iPod Shuffle and Nano models. The original iPod debuted in 2001, being one of the top ways for consumers to carry hundreds of songs in their pockets. The iPod Shuffle and Nano then followed a few years later in 2005, remaining on the market for over 10 years.
