The iPod Touch line has finally been refreshed today which brings new color options gold, and upgraded hardware. On Apple’s website, the headline for the new sixth-generation iPod reads, “the best iPod touch yet.” The new iPod includes an A8 processor, an 8-megapixel iSight camera, making it nearly on-par with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Alongside the A8, this is the first iPod to include a motion coprocessor. In this case, the M8 motion coprocessor. The new camera is capable of shooting 1080p video at 60fps, or 720p slo-mo video at 240fps. Unfortunately design wise the iPods remain the same, meaning the new iPod touch still has a 4-inch retina display. The new iPod Touch also ships with iOS 8.4 and has access to Apple Music.
As shown above, the new iPod touch comes in 4 storage capacities: 16GB/32/64/128, all at $199, $249, $299 and $399 respectively. This makes the 32GB model relatively cheap, making the upgrade only $50. It’s also the first iPod touch available in a 128GB storage capacity.
The iPod nano and iPod shuffle also gets minor cosmetic changes. Coming in blue, pink and gold. The full iPod lineup now is available in six colors: space gray, silver, gold, pink, blue and product red.
