Apple has a new iPod, and it can track your motion just like the iPhone can

Apple just unveiled a new iPod Touch that has a faster processor, better camera, and new color choices. It's available to buy today starting at $199.

The new iPod is a lot more like the iPhone — it has an 8-megapixel camera like the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and it runs on Apple's A8 processor.

This means it comes with the same motion co-processor Apple introduced in the iPhone 5S for tracking your movement. It also has a 4-inch Retina display, like Apple's previous iPod Touch.

The camera is a step up from that of the previous generation iPod Touch, which comes with a 5-megapixel camera. That's equivalent to the camera in the iPhone 4, which was introduced in 2010.

The new iPod Touch will be priced at $199 for the 16GB version, $249 for the 32GB version, and $299 for 64GB. Apple is also adding a new 128GB option for $399, which is a first for the iPod line.

All iPod models, including the new Touch and currently available Shuffle and Nano models, will come in new color choices such as space gray, silver, gold, pink, and blue. Until this point, Apple offered its iPods in yellow, light blue, light pink, and light and dark gray.
