Just when you thought they went extinct:
CUPERTINO, California — July 15, 2015 — Apple® today introduced the best iPod touch® yet and unveiled a new lineup of colors for all iPod® models, including space gray, silver, gold, pink and blue. The ultra-portable iPod touch features a new 8 megapixel iSight® camera for beautiful photos, an improved FaceTime® HD camera for even better selfies, the Apple-designed A8 chip with 10 times faster graphics performance for a more immersive gaming experience, and even better fitness tracking with the M8 motion coprocessor
We own an iPod touch 5th gen that I picked up refurb for about $150 and it’s really fabulous. One of my favorite iOS purchases ever, and currently my primary development unit for iOS 9.
The new iPods with teen-friendly case colors (think metallic rather than iPhone 5C colored, plus the now-standard gold/silver/black) start from $199 at the Apple Store.
Both the nano and the shuffle also appear to include new finishes.
