A8 chip, 8MP iSight camera, 5 stunning colors
iPod touch is the perfect way to carry your music collection in your pocket. With the iTunes Store — the world’s largest music catalog — you can load up your iPod touch with your favorite songs. And thanks to iCloud, everything you purchase through the iTunes Store is automatically available on all your devices for free. To enhance your music experience even more, Apple Music is available on your iPod touch, right in the Music app.
A powerful A8 chip. A stunning Retina display. An incredibly portable design. Whether you like fast-paced action, amazingly detailed strategy games, or beautifully intricate puzzles, iPod touch offers the ultimate mobile gaming experience.
iPod touch features an Apple-designed A8 chip built on 64-bit architecture. This desktop-class chip features GPU performance up to 10 times faster than the previous-generation iPod touch — so the graphics in your favorite games are more responsive and look more vivid than ever before — and CPU performance is up to six times faster. And you get the same great battery life, with up to 40 hours of music and 8 hours of video playback
To get the greatest graphics performance out of the A8 chip and iOS 8, we created Metal — a new technology that allows developers to design highly immersive console-style games. Metal is optimized to let the CPU and GPU work together to deliver detailed graphics and complex visual effects. So every imaginary world feels more realistic.
The M8 motion coprocessor continually measures physical motion from advanced sensors, including a gyroscope and accelerometer. Offloading this work from the A8 chip to the M8 improves power efficiency. The M8 also provides accurate fitness tracking information, such as steps and distance, right to the Health app.
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 friends’ photos — everything is sharp, vivid, and lifelike. And the display is a perfect widescreen fit for your HD movies and TV shows.
iPod touch features a new 8-megapixel iSight camera and an improved FaceTime HD camera, so you can take some of the most stunning photos and videos you’ve ever captured. These new cameras come with features like slo-mo and burst mode, as well as better noise reduction and improved face detection. And with iCloud Photo Library, you can easily access, edit, and share your photos on all your devices.
Slow down life’s fastest moments. The slo-mo feature lets you shoot HD video at 120 fps in 720p. You can even record and then select the portion you want to slow down.
Burst mode helps you take great self and group portraits by continuously capturing 10 photos per second. iPod touch analyzes every shot in real time, comparing sharpness and clarity and even detecting when someone’s eyes are closed. Then iPod touch suggests individual photos or a sequence of photos that you might like best.
iOS 8 is packed with features to get the most out of your iPod touch. Now you can add your voice and video to text messages, quickly make amazing edits to your photos, and keep track of your health. Typing is also easier thanks to predictive text capability. And developers have deeper access and more tools to create even more amazing apps
iPod touch comes with iOS 8 and a 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. Post a photo directly to Facebook or Twitter. Or browse your favorite sites with Safari.
Send free messages over Wi-Fi to anyone on an iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Take a photo or video and send it without leaving Messages. Share locations and links. Name your group chats, and mute or leave the conversation whenever you like
Connect through social networking apps that help you keep up with the people you care about. And with Game Center, you can see your friends’ high scores, achievements, and challenge them to one of the thousands of games available on the App Store
Instagram gives you a simple way to capture and share the world’s moments. Transform your everyday photos and videos with filters and share them with your family and friends
Now up to six family members can share purchases from iTunes, iBooks, and the App Store without sharing accounts. So you can give your favorite people access to all your favorite things. Family Sharing makes it easy for family members to share photo albums, calendars, and even their location. You can even create Apple IDs for children under 13 years old so they can participate, too. Parents can require children to ask permission before making purchases, as well as limit which websites can be accessed in Safari
iPod touch includes the latest in wireless technologies. When you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network, you can make FaceTime calls, send messages, post photos, and download your favorite games and music. And with new support for 802.11ac, you’ll experience up to 3x faster Wi-Fi speeds than with 802.11n. iPod touch also supports Bluetooth 4.1 technology, so you can connect a pair of headphones for listening to your favorite tunes or a game controller for racking up a new high score
Whether it’s a great pair of headphones, a Bluetooth-controlled race car, or a protective case that doubles as a fashion statement, there’s an accessory that complements iPod touch perfectly
