Apple iPod touch 5th generation, 32GB, Blue

Product information

The iPod Touch boasts a brilliant new design. The first thing you’ll notice about iPod touch is its barely-there weight. Then its super-smooth finish. Then all those Apple details — such as the highly polished bevelled edges. The iPod touch is made from one of the strongest grades of aluminium there is and now it comes in a variety of fun colours.

The 4-inch Retina display means more of everything you love. From music to messages and websites to gaming, your fingers will have more room to manoeuvre. The new iPod Touch screen is taller but not wider so you still have complete one-handed control.

The new iSight camera takes great pictures thanks to five megapixel quality. It also features advanced optics, tap to focus, an LED flash and face detection to help you get the shot every time. The iSight camera even shoots 1080p HD video. Use the panorama feature to grab a sweeping shot of your favourite city skyline. Just tap the button, move the camera over the scene and the iPod touch seamlessly creates the perfect wide shot.

All-new Apple accessories that come included with your iPod Touch are the Apple EarPods and The Loop. The Re-designed Apple EarPods were tested on over 600 people to create the new shape. Unlike traditional circular earbuds, the design of the Apple EarPods is based on the geometry of the ear, making them more comfortable and stable during wear. The iPod Touch loop is a fun new way to keep your device safe at hand and it comes colour-matched to your iPod Touch.

Power meets play with the Dual-core A5 chip. It's the most powerful iPod Touch ever. The 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. Yet you get the same great battery life: up to 40 hours of music or 8 hours of video on a single charge.

The iPod Touch comes pre-loaded with great built-in apps. Send unlimited texts with iMessage over Wi-Fi. See your friend’s every expression with a FaceTime video call. Check your email with Mail, and browse the web with Safari. And iOS 6 adds new features with Siri, Facebook integration, Maps, Passbook and more.

With AirPlay, you can wirelessly stream whatever’s on your iPod touch to your HDTV via Apple TV. Or send music wirelessly to compatible docks using the integrated Bluetooth connection.

A big new change is the Lightning to USB cable. For charging and connecting to your PC the new connection is smaller and smarter. With an adapter (sold separately) it will work with existing Apple products.

A gift for my lovely Dad Great service as always at John Lewis. Love this store very much 09 December 2014
Smashing Xmas Present It hasnt been used yet as its a xmas present for my 13 year old, the main reason I bought this from John Lewis was the free 2 year guarantee, it was the same price in Argos & Tesco but theirs only came with a 1 year guarantee 19 November 2013

Apple iPod 5th Generation is great I previously had an iPod 3rd generation and the new 5th generation is even better. I have taken some great photos with it and face timed on it. Added to that the new style earphones fit perfectly now, I had problems getting the old style to stay in place. A great product I would recommend to everyone. 12 January 2013
Prompt delivery Everything I would expect. Goods arrived nicely before xmas in time for present giving 11 January 2013
Brilliant product, great service Used click and collect which was fantastic. Picked up from my local Waitrose the day after ordering it, couldn't have been easier or safer. As for the iPod- it was bought as a gift and was very well received. The blue is a great colour. 09 January 2013
