16GB iPod Touch 5th Generation

The 16GB iPod Touch Gets New Hardware, More Retina

The supersvelte fifth-generation iPod Touch, which Apple announced in September 2012, is now available in a smaller size: 16GB ($229). Previously, the latest iteration of the iPod Touch was only available in 32GB and 64GB versions, while Apple continued to sell the fourth-generation 16GB iPod.

The fourth generation has now been discontinued, and the 16GB iPod Touch gets an iPhone 5-like upgrade on all fronts: more resolution, more screen space, less weight, better front-facing camera, and Siri, Apple's sassy voice-enabled digital assistant.

Unlike its other fifth-generation brethren, however, the new 16GB iPod Touch is not available in a large swath of colors and can only be purchased in black or silver. The new iPod Touch also excludes the 5 MP rear-facing camera and the collapsible "loop" hook but maintains all of the fifth-generation iPod's other specs:

  • 4-inch 1136 x 630 Retina display
  • FaceTime 1.2MP photos and HD video (720p) at 30 fps
  • 3.1 oz.
  • Apple A5 dual core chip
  • 512 MB RAM

Now that Apple's touchscreen media player is more affordable (16GB is $229 vs. the 32GB at $299), will you be picking up the iPhone without a phone?
