Apple releases new iPod touch sans iSight, discontinues fourth-gen model

Apple discontinues fourth-gen iPod touch, replaces it with new model that lacks iSight camera

| Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones News | Posted: May 30, 2013 10:32 pm

Apple has discontinued their fourth-generation iPod touch model. The company has replaced the aging device with a new 16GB iPod touch that is available for just $229. The new iPod touch comes without an iSight camera, which seemingly is a big omission. The device is also available in fewer colors than the new fifth-gen models.

It features the larger Retina display currently used on the fifth-gen iPod touch. It's powered by a dual-core A5 processor and comes with just 16GB of internal storage. It's only available in black and silver. It's price is $30 higher than the older generation iPod touch and likely comes as Apple prepares to launch iOS 7 at WWDC next month.

 

We still feel that the lack of an iSight camera--or any rear-facing camera for that matter--is a big deal and a deal breaker.
