Apple Introduces New 'Space Gray' Colors for iPod Touch, Nano, and Shuffle

Apple today debuted a new "Space Gray" color for the iPhone 5s and has made the color available for the iPod touch, nano, and shuffle as well. In addition to their standard colors, each of these devices can be purchased in Space Gray, which replaces the existing black color.

No pricing changes have been implemented, which means the 32GB iPod touch is $299, the 16GB iPod nano is $149, and the 2GB iPod shuffle is $49.

The small color update for existing iPod products indicates that Apple does not plan to further upgrade the devices with a spec bump in the near future. All of the newly-colored devices can be found on Appleā€™s Online Store and will be available at brick and mortar locations beginning on September 20.

Dear Apple/Bono,

Please make a "Product (RED)" option in some other color besides the same old fugly red, like maybe even a dark (15%) red (almost black/anything but red, pink, or purple) that I would actually want to buy to support a good charity. I like the idea of supporting a charity but loath the color red.

Please!!


You could just donate money to your charity of choice, rather than buying an expensive new device to do it.

Those new color names feels like something from Android world. I always liked how Apple didn't use stupid names like "Blue Arctic", "Purple Mirage", "Red Aurora", "Space Gray" and instead it was Blue, Purple, Red, Gray.

They're doing wrong every single thing now. Apple feels like a Samsung clone.

BMW has been using "Space Gray" since MY2007. I suspect that is who Apple is copying, not Samsung.

I like the slate, it gives(gave) the phone a sweet premium feel to it. =(

I wished that color made it to the macs.

Since the only update seems to be the color, can we change the Buyer's guide back to either Neutral or Don't Buy? This doesn't qualify as an update, simply a color change.

Why in the world would a company remove the most basic standard electronic color that matches the front of the device for a lighter tone of that color. Their design team got lost out there somewhere, I'll just wait for them to return at some point in time when they can make sense again.
