The 16GB model features a 4-inch Retina display, dual-core A5 processor and front-facing FaceTime HD camera. It has the same 6.1mm-thick case as the 5th generation variant, but no longer has a rear-facing camera. It appears the older iPod has been discontinued.
Apple is selling the 16GB iPod touch model for $229. It’s available in only a black and silver design and will ship within 24 hours, according to Apple.
