[edit] iPod touch

The updated iPod Touch looks much like the new iPhone 5 (iPhone SE) with its 4-inch screen. It comes in at 6mm thin and 88 grams, the thinnest and lightest iPod touch yet. There's a 5-megapixel camera with backside illumination, a hybrid IR filter, five-element lens, f/2.4 aperture, auto-focus, LED flash, and a sapphire crystal lens cover. Panorama is also included. It will run the A5 processor, the first time the device has included a dual-core chip. Apple said the upgrade will double the performance and increase graphics performance by 7x. Apple promised 40 hours of music playback in the new iPod touch, and eight hours of video playback.

The iPod touch will come in pink, yellow, blue, white and silver, black, and slate. It will be available in stores starting in October 2012. The 32GB model will be $299 while the 64GB version will be $399. The existing black and white fourth-generation iPod touch will still be available: $199 for the 16GB and $249 for the 32GB.
