Apple Confirms iPod touch Sales Milestone

Apple confirmed a staggering sales milestone on Thursday.

According to the Cupertino, California-based tech giant, the iPod touch has now sold more than 100 million units globally.

News of the achievement for Apple’s iPod touch, which was first introduced to consumers in 2007, comes on the same day that Apple is touting its latest iPod touch refresh.

Apple has made available a freshly revamped low-end model of the 16GB device for $229.

The 4-inch Retina display and dual-core A5 chip are there, although the rear-facing iSight camera and loop are not.

“Whether listening to music or using apps from the App Store, the iPod touch bridges the gap between the iPhone and other iPod models,” says Jim Dalrymple of The Loop. “The iPod touch is also a great portable gaming machine. The new model released today will further the device‚Äôs penetration into that market, in my opinion.”
