You can never have too much fun.

The iSight camera lets you take your best shots. Facebook integration gives you plenty to post about. And, of course, there are endless games to play and endless music to listen to. All on the thinnest, lightest iPod touch ever.

4-inch Retina display. Big fun.

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 favourite celeb gossip site — everything is sharp, vivid and lifelike. And the display is a perfect widescreen fit for your HD films because you can watch them all without letterboxing.

One-handed use

The iPod touch screen is tall, but not wide, so you have complete one-handed control.

iSight camera. Smile. It’s the best camera ever on an iPod touch.

The 5-megapixel iSight camera on iPod touch takes such great shots, you can ditch your point-and-shoot camera for good. Advanced optics, tap to focus, an LED flash and face detection help you get the perfect shot. Capture whole landscapes with the panorama feature. Shoot 1080p HD video. Or use the front-facing FaceTime HD camera to make video calls. You can even edit, crop and enhance your photos from iPod touch using the Photos app.

With iOS 7, taking photos with iPod touch gets even better. Now there’s a square format option. And there’s a set of built-in filters that let you create unique effects. Shoot with a selected filter, or add it later. You can even remove the filter effect after you’ve taken the shot. For more editing options, try iPhoto or iMovie, available in the App Store.

Panorama

Use the panorama feature to grab a sweeping shot of your favourite city skyline, an end-of-year school photo 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.

Dual-core A5 chip. Power meets play.

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 ultra-smooth. 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.

Music and video. Up your entertainment quotient.

Every iPod is all about music. But iPod touch is about music and then some. It lets you take your music and video library with you for an instant fix.

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.

Video

Films never looked better on iPod touch. Videos play in true widescreen on the 4-inch Retina display. Colours positively pop thanks to 44 per cent greater saturation. And if you’re in the mood for that film your friends can’t stop raving about, head to the iTunes Store, where you can download it straight to iPod touch.

iCloud

When you download your favourite music, apps, films 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.

Games and apps. Get ready for the big game.

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 one million apps — including over 260,000 games and entertainment apps — many of which are free.4 Boredom, you just got trounced.

Game Center

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 round the world or with your mate round the corner. Let the domination begin.

More from the App Store

Say you want to learn how to speak your name in Russian. Or find out who sings that great song you’re hearing at the record shop. Or get that photo filter that makes your pics look super vintage-y. Chances are, if you can think of it, you can find it in the App Store. And even if you can’t think of it, you can probably find it in the App Store.

Built-in apps. Fully stocked fun.

It’s not just about what’s out there. It’s also about what’s in here. iPod touch comes loaded with iOS 7 and an ever-expanding collection of powerful built-in apps. Send unlimited texts with iMessage over Wi‑Fi. See your friend’s every expression with a FaceTime video call.5 Check your email with Mail, and browse the web with Safari. And iOS 7 adds Control Centre, AirDrop and more.

AirPlay. From one widescreen to another.

With AirPlay, you can wirelessly stream whatever’s on your iPod touch to your HDTV via Apple TV.6 Say you have some friends over and want a little more screen to show them something that’s on your iPod touch — a video of your band’s latest gig or an epic scene from your favourite film. 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 from iPod touch. So you never have to miss a beat.

Lightning connector. Small. Smart. Durable. Reversible.

The thinnest, lightest iPod touch ever wouldn’t have been possible without completely redesigning the connector you charge it with. The Lightning connector is small and smart, and with the Lightning to 30-pin Adapter (sold separately), your new iPod touch will work with the stuff you already have.
