Reports of the iPod's demise have been greatly exaggerated. Apple took the wraps off an updated iPod touch this morning. The new version gets the same A8 CPU as the iPhone 6, and its rear camera gets a bump to eight megapixels. The previously camera-free 16GB model gets this shooter, as well. Those who still carry huge music libraries will also pleased to find an Apple Store-exclusive 128GB storage tier.
This new model isn't quite an iPhone minus the phone: the rear camera features a slightly slower f/2.4 aperture versus the iPhone 6's f/2.2 optics, and the Touch ID fingerprint sensor remains absent. Still, for those who don't want to bother with a cellular plan, this new Touch could be a compelling option.
Prices start at $199 for the 16GB model. 32GB and 64GB models are also available for $249 and $299, respectively, while the aforementioned 128GB model is $399. Buyers get their choice of space gray, blue, pink, gold, and silver finishes.
