Cupertino, Calif. — Sales of iPods might be falling at double-digit rates, but that isn’t preventing Apple from launching an updated iPod Touch that comes with faster processor, improved camera, faster Wi-Fi, new choice of colors and a new memory capacity of 128GB.
The new iPod Touch starts at $199 for the 16GB model, $249 for 32GB, $299 for 64GB, and $399 for 128GB. They’re available now through the Apple Online Store, Apple’s retail stores, and select authorized retailers.
The new colors, also available for all iPod models, are Space Gray, silver, gold, pink and blue.
The new Touches features 4-inch Retina display, iSight camera with 8 megapixels instead of 5 megapixels, an improved FaceTime HD camera for selfies, the iPhone 6’s Apple-designed 64-bit A8 chip with 10 times faster graphics performance, and improved fitness tracking via the new M8 motion coprocessor.
With the stepped-up iSight and FaceTime HD cameras, iPod Touch owners for the first time access such new features as Slo-Mo and burst modes. The Touch comes with iOS 8.4 and preloaded Apple Music streaming service.
