Brilliant new design.
There's thin and light. Then there's thin and light on a whole new level. iPod touch now has a superthin aluminum body that feels barely in your hand or pocket. It comes in colors so fun, it's impossible to choose just one (but you'll have to). With brand new Apple EarPods, iPod touch sounds as good as it looks. And the iPod touch loop makes it all even more un-put-downable.
It's the thinnest, lightest iPod touch ever.
For the first time, iPod touch is made from the same kind of anodized aluminum used in the MacBook line. And it's made the same way too: By machining the enclosure from a single piece of aluminum. The first thing you'll notice about iPod touch is its barely-there weight. Then its supersmooth finish. Then all those Apple details - like the highly polished beveled edges. And iPod touch is made from one of the strongest grades of aluminum there is. Which means that it not only looks and feels incredible, it's tough enough to tag along on more than a few crazy nights out.
iPod touch doesn't just come in color. It's practically made of color.
There's a reason these iPod touch colors are so incredibly rich and vibrant. It's because they're bonded right to the aluminum - not just painted on the surface. So you see saturated color that still lets the luster of the metal shine through. Which gives you a material that shows off the color, and a color that shows off the material.
One hand still rules the screen.
The new Retina display got taller but not wider. That means everything you do on iPod touch can remain a one-handed operation, and your thumb gets more room to roam. The display is also more 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.
Keep fun close at hand.
The iPod touch loop is a colorful new way to keep your iPod touch at the ready. That's perfect for when you want to shoot from a hard-to-reach camera angle. Flip iPod touch up to type a quick iMessage. Or just sport it when you're pocketless. The loop also keeps your iPod touch safe, so you don't have to worry about a slip, fumble, drop, or overzealous robot dance.
The loop is easy to attach and detach.
Just push the button on the back, slide the loop over it, give the loop a little tug, and you're good to go. The design is so streamlined, you won't even notice the button until you need it.
4-inch Retina display
iPod touch now has a bigger, 4-inch Retina display, so all your fun takes on a bigger size. Your hairpin car-racing turns, your dance party playlist, your favorite celeb gossip site - everything is sharp, vivid, and lifelike. And the new display is a perfect widescreen fit for your HD movies and TV shows because now you can watch them all without letterboxing.
New iSight camera
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 Ã¢â‚¬â€ 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. 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 the same great battery life: up to 40 hours of music or 8 hours of video on a single charge. So you can keep on swinging, slicing, and racing. And listening, watching, and browsing.
