    Models are available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities through the Apple Online Store starting today for $199, $249 and $299 respectively, while a new larger 128GB model was introduced for $399.

    Apple also updated the iPod shuffle and iPod nano with a matching lineup of colors, but no other hardware or storage capacity changes to the devices were made. iPod nano and iPod shuffle maintain their prices of $149 and $49, respectively.

    Sure glad for your clarification that the iPod is a media player. I had no idea. :D

    As you saw, I also provided specimens of the colors in question, just in case there was any doubt. :D

    Benchmarks show that the CPU in iPod Touch 6 is a tad bit under-clocked at 1.10GHz per core compared to the iPhone 6’s A8 chip clocked at 1.39GHz per core. Geekbench 3 gave scores of 1,379 on the single-core test, and 2,440 on the multi-core test which is a huge stride from the A5 CPU-wielding iPod Touch 5.

    Even though it’s slightly slower than iPhone 6, the iPod Touch 6 is still six times faster than the previous-generation iPod Touch 5. It also features 1GB of RAM akin to the iPhone 6 / 6 Plus compared to 512MB found in the last-generation model.

    The newest iPod Touches get pitted against previous-generation models in a video.

    The difference in speed is staggering.
