News: Apple Introduces Low-Cost iPod touch

Posted on May 30, 2013

In a surprising move, Apple’s first bit of redesigned hardware for the year wasn’t an iPad, Mac, or iPhone, but the lowly iPod touch. Gone is the less-expensive previous generation model, and in its place is a 16GB $229 model that is very similar to the other current generation models, except without a rear camera or loop attachment.

The new model is only available in one color combination—black (well, a black glass bezel with silver aluminum around back). Other than that, it appears to be very much like the rest of the iPod touch family, and also means one less device with a 30-pin Dock Connector (the remaining models include the iPhone 4 and 4S).

Additionally, Jim Dalrymple reports that Apple has sold more than 100 million iPod touches since its introduction in 2007.
