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.
The iPod touch loop comes colour-matched to your iPod touch, or you can buy other colours 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 favourite celeb gossip site — everything is sharp, vivid and lifelike. And the display is a perfect widescreen fit for your HD movies because you can watch them all without letterboxing.
The iPod touch screen is tall, but not wide, so you have complete one-handed control.
The 5-megapixel iSight camera on iPod touch takes such great shots, you can ditch your point-and-shoot camera for good.1 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 right there on iPod touch using the Photos app.
With iOS 7, taking photos with iPod touch gets even better. There’s a new 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.
Use the panorama feature to grab a sweeping shot of your favourite city skyline, your entire grade on the last day of school 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, and 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 eight 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 bring 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.
Movies never looked better on iPod touch. Videos play in true widescreen on the 4-inch Retina display. Colours positively glow thanks to 44 per cent 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 straight to iPod touch.
When you download your favourite music, apps, movies 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.
