Apple updates lowest end iPod touch, trims prices


By

Thursday Apple announced it's replacing the 16 GB iPod touch to match the rest of the iPod touch lineup. The 16 GB version was essentially the previous generation model selling for $199. Now the 16 GB is the same generation as the 32 GB and 64 GB. This means the 16 GB now comes in the full range of colors as the rest of the line and also features an 5 MP iSight camera and A5 CPU. Apple has said that the iPod touch will run iOS 8, although some features may be missing. The old 16 GB model may not fall under that statement, and now it should.

Apple also lowered pricing on the other models. The 32 GB now sells for $249 and the 64 GB is $299.
