People often refer to the Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation as an Apple iPhone without the phone. In actuality when you look at the specs, it shares some of the hardware and features of an iPhone 6. Yes, it’s smaller in size but the processor is the same and so is the camera. It doesn’t have some features like a fingerprint sensor and of course, the cell phone part. But if it isn’t a cell phone you are looking for, the Apple iPod Touch 6th generation is a real deal.
When it comes to mounting an Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation, it’s important to know the dimensions of these devices. The Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation is larger than any Touch model announced to date. The Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation is 4.86 inches tall by 2.31 inches wide by .24 inches deep. These are important measurements to keep in mind when selecting your mount. For those that have purchased a universal mount to hold a phone or an old iPod Touch, hopefully it opens wide enough to hold your new Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation without a problem. Most universal mounts offer options to upgrade your cradle to a larger one. From experience, I suspect you will be able to reuse your existing universal mount for an Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation.
I often suggest using a case or skin to protect devices and on the Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation it’s up to you. These aren’t terribly expensive so you will need to figure out if you feel comfortable leaving it exposed. Personally, I always opt for a well made case.
There are a lot of companies that offer some excellent mounting solutions that fit the Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation real well.
As for recommendations, I have used and really like the Arkon MegaGrip Suction Cup Windshield and Dash Mount for universal car use. This line is inexpensive and proven. You can use it reliably on your car dash or windshield and it fits your Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation with or without a case. The mount features a vacuum locked suction assembly attached to a pivoting arm. The cradle opens and closes at a push of a button and expands up to 3.4 inches so it will fit your device even with a case. The phone can swivel into any orientation. The mount also comes with an adhesive disk that you can stick to the dash to turn the mount into a console mount. The suction assembly can adhere to the adhesive disk just like it would on a windshield. I have used these for a long time and can vouch for the ease of use and durability. Might be the best phone mount you can get for the price.
As an alternative, the very formidable Arkon Megagrip Car Cup Holder Mount includes the same cradle as the previous mount. This is a nice alternative to traditional windshield mounting. The cup holder base expands to fit almost all cup holders except the folding ones that I see in some roadsters. There is an included flexible gooseneck stem that will allow you to tilt the mount to a convenient angle.
If you are looking to use your Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation on a motorcycle, consider the RAM X-Grip line. These are heavy duty mounts that are mostly constructed of metal. The mount has gone through some rigorous shake tests and holds up well on a motorcycle. We wrote about X-Grips extensively on this site and you can view that article here. The mount that you would use for this device is the RAM Handlebar Mount with Universal X-Grip Holder. This is a metal mount with an expandable cradle that opens to 3.25 inches and it comes with a lifetime warranty.
