It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the iPod. Any of the iPods. However today Apple has finally announced a refresh to the iPod Touch. This new iPod brings a huge upgrade to the processing power within the iPod Touch packing the latest A8 processor. That will bring a lot more power compared to the previous A5 SoC. This new model also upgrades the camera from 5MP to 8MP. Wi-Fi has also been improved to be faster.
As far as the display goes, it’s still the same 4″ inch 1136×640 display as previous versions. Unfortunately, we don’t get Touch ID on this model as we’ve been seeing on Apple’s other products.
Last but not least, this new iPod Touch brings a couple of new color options. The new iPod Touch will be available in Space Grey, Silver, Gold, Dark Blue, and Hot Pink. These color options are also coming to the iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle with no hardware upgrades.
Pricing for the new iPod Touch starts at $199 for the base 16GB model and goes up to $399 for the 128GB model. The new updates to the iPod lineup are available starting today from the Apple Store and in stores soon.
