iPod touch get its first major upgrade in three years

Apple today announced the first major upgrade to the iPod touch in three years; a new portable media player sharing many of the iPhone 6's internals. 

The new iPod touch maintains the previous model's 4-inch Retina display, but has been refreshed with the iPhone 6's A8 processor and M8 motion compressor, and an eight megapixel rear-facing camera. It is available in a choice of space grey, silver, gold, pink, blue or red, with storage options up to 128GB.

The new iPod touch ships with iOS 8, can access the App Store, and utilise Apple Music when connected to a wireless network. An upgrade to iOS 9 will be made available later this year.

The 16GB model retails for AUD$279, the 32GB model retails for AUD$349, the 64GB model retails for AUD$419, and the 128GB model retails for AUD$579. All four are available from today.

Apple also refreshed its iPod nano and iPod shuffle lines with a new range of colours (the same options found on the new iPod touch), but the devices are otherwise unchanged.

A 2GB iPod shuffle retails for AUD$75, while a 16GB iPod Nano retails for AUD$219. Both are available from today.
