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.
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.
The iPod touch loop comes color-matched to your iPod touch, or you can buy other colors separately. It’s a fun way to keep your iPod touch safe at hand.
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 iPod touch screen is tall, but not wide, so you have complete one-handed control
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 or iMovie available in the App Store.
Dual Core A5 Chip
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
Siri on iPod Touch
Siri will wake you up, open your apps, give you movie and restaurant picks, answer your most random questions, and remind you to do stuff. In a nice way. All you have to do is ask
With AirPlay, you can wirelessly stream whatever’s on your iPod touch to your HDTV via Apple TV.7Say you have some friends over and want a little more real estate to show them something that’s on your iPod touch — a video of you punking a friend or an epic scene from your favorite movie. Tap the AirPlay icon from the app you’re in — such as Photos, Music, Videos, or Safari — and everything on your small screen plays on your big screen. You can also stream music to any AirPlay-enabled speakers or AirPort Express-connected speakers, so your sounds sound even bigger.
And AirPlay Mirroring lets you share exactly what’s happening on your iPod touch screen at any given moment with everyone in the room — on your HDTV via Apple TV. Show a new site you discovered. Stream games live as you’re playing, and give your alien butt-kicking skills the full display they deserve
Bluetooth.Wireless is more
With Bluetooth built into iPod touch, pairing with Bluetooth-enabled headphones and speakers is a cinch. And if your car has a Bluetooth-enabled sound system, you can play your tunes to it right from iPod touch. So you never have to miss a beat
The thinnest, lightest iPod touch ever wouldn’t have been possible without completely redesigning the connector you charge it with. The connector is called Lightning. It’s small and smart, and with an adapter (sold separately), it’ll work with the stuff you already have.
