Apple iPod touch (5th Generation)

Product information

Ultra-slim, ultra-light and easy to use, Apple's 5th generation iPod touch is the ideal portable device for music, movies, games and more. Running on iOS, iPod touch is packed full of features and includes a brilliant design, gorgeous Retina display and integrated cameras. It's also available in a variety of colours and capacities, so you can easily find the iPod that best suits you.

Beautiful design
More advanced than ever and more fun than ever. iPod touch is made from aluminium, rendering it smooth to touch and light to carry, as well as tough enough to take the occasional bump. Even the charging port has been designed to ensure portability, with the small and smart lightning connector allowing for the slimmer design. iPod touch has been designed with the environment in mind, with its composition consisting of highly recyclable materials and free of toxic ones. And it still looks great, with the fun, vibrant colour options ensuring iPod touch really stands out.

Retina display
The stunning 4-inch Retina display is a perfect fit for whatever you want to do- from browsing the internet and creating playlists to watching widescreen movies and playing games. It's tall but slim, making it perfect for one handed use and includes finger-friendly multi-touch technology to ensure accuracy and responsiveness. The Retina display is bright and vibrant, and packs in 326 pixels per inch, allowing it to show more details and delivering crisp, clear images.

iSight and FaceTime HD Cameras
Capture high quality photos with the 5 megapixel iSight camera. iSight makes use of advanced optics combined with an LED flash, tap to focus and face detection to deliver the perfect shot. You can even use it to take incredible panoramic shots or record 1080p Full HD video. Plus, the front-facing FaceTime HD camera is ideal for making video calls and taking selfies, while editing your photos is easy in the Photos app.

Dual-core chip
iPod touch is powered by a dual-core A5 chip, providing incredible processing power and fast graphics for all of your games and apps. The A5 is also remarkably power-efficient, allowing for up to 40 hours of music playback or 8 hours of video on a single charge.

Music and video
iPod touch and iTunes are here to keep you entertained. With up to 64GB of room available to store your music and videos, you can make sure you'll always have something to grab your attention. Plug in the included earpods for some private listening or share your favourite tunes with friends over the built-in loudspeaker. You can even wirelessly stream music to compatible speakers through Bluetooth or AirPlay. And if you're running out of things to watch, the iTunes Store is ready with plenty of songs and videos for you to download straight to your iPod.

Games and apps
The App Store is host to over a million apps and games, many of which are free to download. You iPod touch will also come with a variety of pre-installed apps, from iMessage and FaceTime for communicating with friends and family to Safari for browsing the web and Maps to help you plot your journeys.

With Siri, your iPod touch can help you plan your life and answer your questions. Siri can wake you up, give you film and restaurant picks, give you reminders and answer almost any question you can think of. Requires internet access.

With the Apple EarPods and the iPod touch loop, you iPod touch is ready to go. The EarPods have been tested on over 600 people to create the new one-size-fits-all 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, all while delivering excellent sound quality.
