Apple today announced the launch of a new 16 GB fifth-generation model to its iPod lineup. This revelation is bestowed without a rear camera and is available for a price for $229. This disclosure is only available with a black front and silver back and thus it replaces the specified fourth-generation iPod touch. That model was the generally used model that was existent during the time of new models late last year. This revelation is now available in the Apple’s online store and it should be made available across the company’s retail stores starting from tomorrow.
Just last year we have seen the redesigned fifth-generation iPod touch that surfaced up last September comprising the same 4-inch display that was existent on the iPhone and juxtaposed with several other functionalities and improvements. However owing to the new hardware pushing the particularized entry-level price to $299 for a 32 GB model, several efforts and incremental provisions were made by Apple to incorporate the fourth-generation models at cheaper $199 (16 GB) and $249 (32 GB) prices.
Therefore along these lines, Apple has incorporated a procedural impact on curtailing costs emphasizing on both natural component cost declines and through reduction of a plethora of features. Thus this proves beneficial over the course of time that the stripped-down fifth-generation model pricing is almost brought similar to the previously offered for the fourth-generation models. Along with the deprivation of the rear camera, the new-fangled entry-level iPod touch also misses out on Apple’s “Loop” wrist strap that was previously announced with the fifth-generation models last year.
