There’s always a place in my heart for the iPod.

If you prefer your iTunes library to be phonecall-free, today’s news from Apple should be music to your ears.

The iPod Touch is finally being refreshed, with the company’s A10 Fusion chip now powering the media playing powerhouse.

The last time Apple released an updated iPod Touch was four years ago, when it was based on the iPhone 5’s A8 chip.

  • With the upgrade to the A10 chip, the iPod Touch can support Group FaceTime calls and ARKit applications (yes, that means AR stuff like Pokemon Go)
  • Storage also gets a boost, with options up to 256GB
  • Battery life is still rated at 40 hours for music playback and up to eight hours for video playback
  • Pretty much everything else is the same as the 2015 model
  • Pricing is based on the storage options, with the 32GB option being $199, the 128GB is $299, and the 256GB version will be $399
  • You can get the new iPod Touch in six colors: Space Gray, Gold, Silver, Pink, Blue and (PRODUCT) Red

If that sounds good (and you live in one of the countries below), you can grab one from Apple.com starting today, or in-store at Apple retailers later this week.

  • Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the UAE, UK, and U.S.
