When you see iPod touch for the first time, you won’t believe your eyes. But when you hold it in your hand — that’s when you get how unbelievable it is. It weighs next to nothing, yet it’s no lightweight: It still does all the gaming, surfing, messaging, and everything else you love, more powerfully than ever.Learn more about the design of iPod touch
Apple designers and engineers tested 124 different prototypes of the EarPods on over 600 people to create Apple EarPods. The result? A really comfortable fit and incredible sound.
iPod touch has a 4-inch Retina display, so all your fun has a beautiful canvas. Your hairpin car-racing turns, your dance party playlist, your favorite celeb gossip site — everything is sharp, vivid, and lifelike. And the display is a perfect widescreen fit for your HD movies and TV shows because you can watch them all without letterboxing.
The Retina display is tall but not wide. That means everything you do on iPod touch can be a one-handed operation, and your thumb has room to roam. The display is advanced, with finger-friendly Multi-Touch technology built into the glass instead of beneath it. So less gets between you and your games, music, messages — whatever you love to see and do.
Some moments are just begging for a photo. Your best friend’s bizarro look-alike spotted on the street. An entire wall of graffiti art. A surreal-looking sunset. The iSight camera on iPod touch packs 5 megapixels — seven times more than the previous generation — and takes such great shots, you can ditch your point-and-shoot camera for good.1 And the surface of the iSight camera is made from sapphire crystal, whose hardness is second only to diamond when it comes to transparent materials. So the surface of the lens is more resistant to scratches.
Advanced optics, tap to focus, an LED flash, and face detection help you get the shot every time. The iSight camera shoots 1080p HD video, and the front-facing FaceTime HD camera makes FaceTime video calls. You can also use the front camera for taking self-portraits or recording 720p HD video. And you can edit, crop, and enhance your photos right from iPod touch using the Photos app. For more editing options, try iPhoto oriMovie, available in the App Store.
Use the panorama feature to grab a sweeping shot of your favorite city skyline, your graduating class in the bleachers, or your dachshund stretched out at naptime. Just tap the button, move the camera over the scene, and iPod touch seamlessly creates the perfect wide shot.
It’s the most powerful iPod touch ever. That’s because the dual-core A5 chip provides up to twice the processing power and up to seven times faster graphics than the previous generation. So games are incredibly responsive and realistic. Your samurai swordplay is sharper than ever, your zombie-dodging ultrasmooth. And because the A5 chip isn’t a power hog, you get great battery life: up to 40 hours of music or 8 hours of video on a single charge.2 So you can keep on swinging, slicing, and racing. And listening, watching, and browsing.
Every iPod is all about music. But iPod touch is about music and then some. It lets you tote around your entire music and video library for an instant fix of entertainment wherever you are.
Music and iTunes
The latest song you have on endless repeat. The indie track your friend recommended. That classic rock album your parents loved — and, it turns out, you love too. Your music library is yours alone, and your iPod touch is where it all plays. And with every kind of music on iTunes just a tap away, you can find the perfect song for whatever mood — or room or car — you’re in.
Movies and TV shows never looked better on iPod touch. Videos play in true widescreen on the 4-inch Retina display. Colors positively pop thanks to 44 percent greater saturation. And if you’re in the mood for that movie your friends can’t stop raving about, head to the iTunes Store, where you can download it right to iPod touch.
When you download your favorite music, apps, movies, TV shows, and books from the iTunes Store to iPod touch, iCloud makes all that content accessible on all your other devices — iPhone, iPad, Mac, or PC — so you never have to connect cables or manually sync to transfer your content.3 It’s easy like that.
Good design takes into account environmental impact. That’s why nearly every Apple product is made from highly recyclable materials like aluminum, and why we refuse to use harmful toxins.
Every iPod touch is free of toxic materials like brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). In fact, Apple has one of the strictest BFR-free and PVC-free standards in the industry. We even disassemble products and test all the components in our Cupertino lab to make sure our suppliers meet our environmental standards.
Fast dual-core performance and sharp graphics make iPod touch the hands-down, thumbs-up, most popular portable gaming device in the world. The App Store features more than 800,000 apps — including over 100,000 games — many of which are free.4 Boredom, you just got served.
This is where gamers become friends. And friends become foes. Game Center is your social gaming hub, where you create a profile, invite other gamers on your next mission, and claim top-of-the-leaderboards bragging rights. Start a challenge with a random player around the world or with your buddy down the block. Let the schooling begin.
