Details & Highlights
The more advanced we made it, the funner it got.
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 display.

It's the thinnest, lightest iPod touch ever.
- 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 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.
When you download your favorite music, apps, movies, TV shows, 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.2 It's easy like that.
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. Big fun.
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.
The new iPod touch screen gets taller, but not wider, so you still have complete one-handed control.
New iSight camera. Smile. It's the best camera ever on an iPod touch.
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 - 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.
Dual-core A5 chip. Power meets play.
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.1 So you can keep on swinging, slicing, and racing. And listening, watching, and browsing.
Music and video. It's not only rock and roll. And we like it.
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.
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.
