More colors, more storage, and more Apple Music for newly refreshed iPod Touch

more colors storage and apple music for newly refreshed ipod touch new
Rejoice, music fans! At long last, Apple updated its iPod lineup with a brand-new iPod Touch and new color options for its whole collection of music players.

The sixth-generation iPod Touch has a 4-inch screen with a 1,136 x 640 pixel resolution, and it’s powered by the much faster 64-bit A8 chip and M8 motion coprocessor. Apple claims the graphics performance is ten-times faster than the previous-generation iPod Touch, so you can even play games on this one with no problem, if you want.

The new iPod Touch is essentially a mini iPhone with its 8-megapixel rear-facing iSight camera, FaceTime HD front-facing shooter, iOS 8.4, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, and Bluetooth 4.1.  As expected, it’s got Apple Music and Beats 1 pre-installed, so those who’ve yet to try Apple’s music-streaming service will be sucked right in from the get-go. Apple Music costs $10 a month after the three-month free trial, or $15 a month for a family plan for as many as six people.

Just like we saw in an earlier leak from the iTunes 12.2 release, the iPod Touch comes in several new colors, including blue, pink, silver, space gray, gold, and red. Apple sells 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB models in its online store for $200, $250, and $300 respectively. BestBuy, Wal-Mart, and other authorized Apple resellers will get the iPod Touch soon. Apple also added a massive 128GB model to the mix for $400. However, the 128GB and (PRODUCT) Red models will be sold exclusively at Apple.

Previous rumors hinted the iPod Shuffle and iPod Nano might get a refresh, too, but Apple only updated the colors, not the specs for its less high-tech music players. As such, the prices remain the same on Apple’s website for both devices. The iPod Nano cost $150 and iPod Shuffle cost $50 from the Apple Store. All the new iPods are available now in the online store and its physical Apple Stores.
