Having just picked up Apple’s latest iPod touch (6th gen.) earlier today, I decided to run a few benchmarks to compare it to my iPhone 6. I’m aware its A8 chip is slightly under clocked when compared to the iPhone 6, but I’m still hugely impressed by the results.
Worth noting, both devices were running the public release build of iOS 8.4 during the benchmark tests, so it’s a more-than-fair comparison. :)
I’ve only owned it for a few hours, but I’m impressed with the iPod touch. It’s no secret I’ve loved the iPod touch ever since the second generation model was my first iOS device, and I continue to find ample use for it in my life - which more than justifies the $349AU (32GB model) price tag.
