iPod Touch updated with iSight camera, more colour choices

iPod Touch

Apple updates its entry-level iPod Touch with a camera and more colour options, for £159

Apple has refreshed its entry-level iPod Touch, adding a camera and new colour options to bring it in line with the rest of the iPod Touch range, and to celebrate has reduced the price of every iPod Touch model currently on sale through Apple stores and the official Apple website.

Previously, the entry-level 16GB model lacked the 5-megapixel iSight camera and colour choices of the more expensive 32GB and 64GB iPod Touch; it could only be bought in space grey and had no rear-facing camera at all, just a FaceTime HD front-facing webcam. Apple has now updated the 16GB model with these missing features, adding the iSight rear camera (which is capable of Full HD 1080p video recording), making it available in the same colours as the rest of the range, and adding a wrist loop for the first time. It will also arrive at a lower price: £159.

As before, the new model has a 4in Retina display, is powered by Apple’s A5 processor, runs iOS 7 and ships with a pair of Apple Earpod in-ear headphones. Apple has also pledged to continue supporting the current range of iPod Touch models with iOS 8 when it launches later this year – users will be able to download the software update for free over Wi-Fi.

The new, refreshed 16GB iPod Touch is launching in North America today, and will be arriving in UK Apple stores in the coming days. It will be available in pink, yellow, silver, blue or space grey for £159. The existing 32GB and 64GB models also get a price cut: the 32GB model will be reduced to £199, while the 64GB model will cost £249.
