New iPod Touch 5 Priced $229 Launched Silently by Apple

Recently, Apple launched the new edition of iPod touch. It is the fifth generation iPod Touch. Apple has launched a 16GB version of iPod touch 5 and is available for purchase for $229. The device is available in two colors, black and silver. You can grab the new iPod touch 5 from the Apple store on the internet and also from Apple’s retail outlets.


The iPod touch 5 has a refreshing new look compared to the predecessor models. It even comes with new features. Good thing about the iPod touch is that it is available in a wide range of colors. For those who are eagerly waiting for the next gen iPhone to release, this can be good news as many rumors have claimed that the next gen iPhone would be available in different colors.

The iPod touch 16GB version does not offer many features. It is only available in silver color and lacks some features. The major setback on the 16GB variant is that the makers have decided to do away with camera from this model. The iPod touch features a 4-inch Retina display that supports 1136 x 640 pixels resolution. The 32GB model can be availed for $299.

Apple is still continuing the sales of the fourth generation iPod touch. The 16GB model is priced at $199 and 32GB model is priced at $249. The iPod Touch 5 32GB model comes with 5MP camera and LED flash. It even allows users to record 1080p HD videos. It is not to reduce the cost of iPod Touch (16GB model), Apple has decided do with camera.

By the way, iPod touch was not designed for taking photos. The sole purpose for making iPod touch is to listen to music. The other features of the iPod touch include A5 CPU, iOS 6 and ear-pods. In 2012, Apple had launched the Lightning Connector, the iPod Touch 5 supports it.

Even the pricing of the iPod touch is quite disappointing. Experts feel that iPod touch 5 16GB edition is priced highly at $229 because a better model of 32GB that comes with 5MP camera and different colors is available for $299. Experts feel that the 16GB model of iPod touch is overpriced as it comes without camera and is available in only one color.

The other features available on the 32GB and 16GB variants include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and 1.2MP front-facing camera which allows you to do video-chat through the FaceTime app. Another feature that is lacking on both the variants of iPod touch 5 is that they come without 3G and 4G connectivity. May be it is the reason why the iPod touch is called ‘iPhone without the Phone’. Like predecessor models, you cannot make calls from the device.

You can install your favorite apps from the iTunes Store. The iPod touch 5 comes preloaded with Spotify music app. The new iPod touch is quite sleek and slim and resembles iPhone. The release of the iPod touch 5 was quite a silent affair.
