More power to play with
iPod touch uses an Apple-designed A8 chip to deliver desktop-class performance. It's up to 10 times faster than the previous generation iPod touch, making games more responsive with fantastic graphics. Apps and navigation are also smoother than ever, while the M8 motion coprocessor takes care of gathering data from the iPod's sensors, freeing up the A8 to handle more demanding tasks, while motion tracking is more accurate than ever.
iSight and FaceTime HD Cameras
Photos and video quality has been enhanced on the iPod touch. The 8-megapixel iSight camera can capture slow motion and time lapse videos, as well photos as fast as 10 per second and high resolution panoramas. The FaceTime HD camera has been similarly enhanced, with High Dynamic Range (HDR) and exposure controls helping you get better looking photos, while improved face detection ensures that your selfies are in focus.
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.
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.
