Apple has introduced a new model of its iPod touch. The new iPod touch comes in a 16 GB capacity and lacks the rear iSight camera of other iPod touches with Retina displays. This new model of iPod touch does still feature the front facing FaceTime camera. With the introduction of this new low-cost iPod touch it appears Apple has discontinued the old fourth generation 3.5-inch screen iPod touches.

Besides lacking the rear iSight camera, the new low-cost iPod touch with Retina display only comes in black or silver colors. Its siblings that have a rear iSight camera and come and 32 GB or 64 GB capacities are available in multiple colors. The new low-cost iPod touch does contain the same A5 chip and comes with the same Apple Earbuds as its higher-priced siblings, however.

The new 16 GB iPod touch without the rear iSight camera is US$229.
