Apple has officially announced the new iPhone 5C and the iPhone 5S. While the former is decidedly more colorful with its five color options, the latter, which is Apple's new flagship handset, comes in three more subdued colors. These are silver, gold, and a replacement for the previous black color option for the iPhone 5 called "space gray," which, as it turns out, has also been added to the color choices for some iPod models. As reported by 9to5Mac, the iPod nano, the iPod shuffle, and the 32GB and 64GB versions of the iPod touch can now also be ordered in a new space gray color. Note that the 16GB version of the iPod touch is not available in space gray. Introduced late last May, the cheaper 16GB iPod touch remains available in just one color combination, black and silver. Like the 32GB and 64GB models, the 16GB iPod touch has a 4-inch Retina display, a dual-core A5 chip, Lightning connectivity, and a FaceTime HD camera. But unlike its higher-capacity siblings, it comes without an iSight rear camera and it ships without a lanyard or loop attachment. Note, too, that the new iPhone 5C is not available in space gray. Rather, it comes in a range of fun colors, namely, blue, green, red, yellow, and white.
