The September 2012 iPod touch revision gave us six different colours to choose from. Where before there was just black or white, this fifth generation iPod touch gave us black, grey, pink, mustardy-green and blue, and also an Apple Store-exclusive (PRODUCT)RED – the latest refresh swapped the black for space grey.
It also features a stunning four-inch Retina display, a five-megapixel iSight camera with 1080p HD video, Apple’s dual-core A5 processor, the intelligent assistant Siri, and a Lightning port to replace the old 30-pin dock connector. At just 6.1mm thick, it’s the slimmest iPod touch ever made. It looks great too, being built from ultra-light anodised aluminium. A new panorama feature lets you capture gorgeous panoramic photos by simply moving the camera across a scene.
In June 2014, Apple upgraded the 16GB version of the iPod touch, adding the rear-facing camera and range of colours, as well as dropping the price on the higher-capacity models.
