I recently purchased a second iPhone for work, and it made me wonder - would you purchase a cellular iPod touch if Apple made one? You can contact people by WhatsApp, Skype, iMessage, FaceTime, Facebook etc. Given that phone plans that include calls and text messages are typically more expensive than data-only plans with a comparable amount of data, I feel like such a device could work for some people.
Of course, this topic begs the question, “Would Apple create such a device?” Until recently, Apple looked like it was abandoning the iPod Touch, but a recent rumour suggests that an updated device may be coming out. The size difference between the iPhone XS Max (6.5”) and the iPad Mini (7.9”) is a mere 1.4”, but I don’t fancy using a cellular iPad Mini in place of my iPhone.
