Apple has also updated the image sensor processor and added burst and slo-mo modes. The front-facing camera hasn’t had a resolution bump but it does not feature burst mode for swifter selfie capture.
The Touch also has cinematic video stabilization now, which should make it a lot better at capturing videos on the move.
There’s also the 64-bit A8 chip under the hood for better graphics and gaming.
Exercise fans will be pleased to find the ‘M8’ chip, which tracks fitness data, steps and elevation in the current generation of iPhones, has made its way to the Touch.
One other spec change is that the device now supports the faster AC Wi-Fi standard.
The new iPod Touch is available in 16GB ($199), 64GB ($299) and 128GB ($399) models, in space gray, silver, gold, pink, red, and blue
