iPod touch—New Design
The new iPod touch weighs next to nothing, but it’s no lightweight: it still does all the gaming, surfing, messaging, and everything else, more powerfully than ever.
The iPod touch loop comes colour-matched to your iPod touch, or you can buy other colours separately. It’s a fun new way to keep your iPod touch safe at hand.
4-Inch Retina Display
iPod touch now has a bigger 4-inch Retina display, so all your fun takes on a bigger size — everything is sharp, vivid, and lifelike.
The new iPod touch screen gets taller, but not wider, so you still have complete one-handed control.
New iSight Camera
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. 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 camera gets a boost for better FaceTime calls.
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. And because the A5 chip isn’t a power hog, you get the same great battery life: up to 40 hours of music or 8 hours of video.
Music, Video and Games
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. 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. Fast dual-core performance and sharp graphics make iPod one of the most popular portable gaming device in the world.
New Apple EarPods
Introducing Apple EarPods. They fit comfortably and stay put through all kinds of activity, from your impromptu dancing to your hard-core workout. And the audio quality of Apple EarPods is top end, rivaling other high-end headphones.
Siri Comes to 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. All you have to do is ask.
The New Lightning Connector
The thinnest, lightest iPod touch ever wouldn’t have been possible without making some big changes. Including completely redesigning the connector you charge it with. The new connector is called Lightning. It’s smaller and smarter, and with an adapter (sold separately), it’ll still work with the stuff you already have.
