And so it appears that Apple’s fifth-generation iPod Touch has begun shipping, which isn’t all that surprising given that earlier today Apple posted a User Guide for its latest and greatest iPod to iBooks.
When Apple first unveiled their new iPod Touch and iPod Nano models at its special event back in September, the company remained mum on release details, merely mentioning that they would launch sometime in October.
And now MacRumors is reporting that both products have begun shipping with some stores in Japan already carrying the products in stock. Sporting a dual core A5 processor, the iPod Touch is blazin’, with initial benchmarking reports finding that it’s up to speed with the iPhone 4S.
Notably, the new Apple EarPods that come with the iPod Touch lack the integrated controls and microphone that come with the EarPods on the iPhone 5. One can, however, use the iPhone 5 EarPods on the iPod Touch and use the microphone.
