Recall that this is an inexpensive version of the iPod touch 5, released in 2013 – a year after the older brothers. Unlike the 32GB and 64GB versions, the 16GB iPod touch 5 was only available in one silver color and lost its rear camera.
In the summer of 2015, Apple introduced the sixth-generation iPod touch. The seventh-generation debuted only in 2019, after which the player never received a continuation in the form of new models.
Being on the Obsolete Product List means the device is no longer supported by Apple or its service providers.
