Fresh off the release of its new music-streaming service, Apple has unveiled a new iPod.

The latest model of the iPod touch, which hit the Apple Store on Wednesday, features a more powerful camera, faster graphics, and a better motion sensor. Apple also revealed new gold, dark blue and bright pink colors for its entire iPod line.


This comes on the heels of the launch of Apple Music, the company's answer to Spotify, which lets people stream an unlimited amount of music for $9.99 per month.

Owners of the new iPod touch can stream the service over their Wi-Fi connection. If they want to play games, they can take advantage of the device's A8 chip, the same one used by the iPhone 6. Apple says it delivers 10 times faster graphics performance than the previous iPod touch model.

The gadget also includes an 8-megapixel iSight camera, an improved FaceTime HD camera, and a M8 motion coprocessor for better fitness tracking.

The iPod nano and iPod shuffle did not see any improvements beyond the new colors. The 16 GB version of the new iPod touch will sell for $199.
