Apple’s iPod touch line has been split between 4th generation and 5th generation models with the introduction of the 5th generation of the device.
In late 2012, Apple released the 5th generation iPod touch with an all-new design that is thinner and lighter than the 4th generation device. It also carries the same 4-inch screen as the iPhone 5, a Lightning connector, and faster processing with the A5 chip. It also now has Apple’s Siri voice assistant and a much improved camera system (5 megapixels on the back, and FaceTime HD on the front).
The fourth-generation iPod touch was released in black in 2010, but in May of this year Apple silently discontinued the fourth-gen iPod touch and replaced it with a 16GB model with the same design as the 5th gen. The 16GB model, however, doesn’t include a rear facing camera or camera loop feature.
The 5th gen model comes in a black and slate model, and models that include a white front and a silver, pink, blue, yellow, or red back. (The 16GB model is black and silver only).
