DUAL-CORE A5 CHIP
Its the most powerful iPod touch ever. Thats 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 isnt 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.
LARGER RETINA DISPLAY
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.
The iPod touch loop is a colorful new way to keep your iPod touch at the ready. Thats 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 youre pocketless. The loop also keeps your iPod touch safe, so you dont have to worry about a slip, fumble, drop, or overzealous robot dance. Just push the button on the back, slide the loop over it, give the loop a little tug, and youre good to go. The design is so streamlined, you wont even notice the button until you need it.
Creating one-earbud-fits-all headphones is a challenge. Thats because everyones ears are different. So when Apple engineers were designing the new EarPods, they didnt start with the speaker, they started with the ear. Unlike traditional circular earbuds, the design of the Apple EarPods is based on the geometry of the ear. Which makes them more comfortable for more people than any other earbud-style headphones.
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. 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.
Use the panorama feature on iPod touch to grab a sweeping shot of your favorite city skyline, your graduating class in the bleachers, 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.
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. In a nice way. All you have to do is ask.
With AirPlay, you can wirelessly stream whatevers on your iPod touch to your HDTV via Apple TV.6
THINNEST LIGHTEST IPOD EVER
For the first time, iPod touch is made from the same kind of anodized aluminum used in the MacBook line. And its 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, its tough enough to tag along on more than a few crazynightsout. Fun was built into every millimeter of the new thinner, lighter iPod touch. It does more than ever, more powerfully than ever, from playing games to playing music to just playing around. And everything looks tremendous on the 4-inch Retina disp
