Apple has quietly updated its lineup of iPods for the first time since October of 2012, introducing new versions of the iPod Touch, iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle. While both the Nano and Shuffle have received the addition of some brand new colors, the changes to the iPod Touch go a bit further than just cosmetics as the new specs basically make it an iPhone 6 without calling and Touch ID capabilities. Now available in gold, silver, space grey, blue, pink and Product (RED) varieties, the device sees the inclusion of an A8 chip — an improvement over the old A5 — as well as the addition of an 8MP iSight camera. Like the iPhone 6, the iPod Touch also now includes a M8 coprocessor for fitness tracking. Perhaps best of all: there’s a 128 GB option for $400 USD — a storage capacity previously unavailable for the iPod following the death of the iPod Classic.

Apple’s refreshed iPods are now available in stores and online.
