The Apple iPod touch 16GB with 4.0” retina display provides you with 16GB of storage for all of your games, photos, music, and videos. The Apple iPods are all about music and the iPod touch lets you carry round your entire music and video library for an instant fix of entertainment wherever you are. The new iSight 5MP camera enables you to capture dynamic panoramic landscapes and allows you to focus with one simple touch on the screen. Built-in to the iPod touch is an LED flash, face detection, 1080p HD video recording, and a few of the basic editing tools, such as crop and enhance. Inside the iPod touch is a dual-core A5 chip which provides up to twice the processing power and up to seven times faster graphics than the previous generation.
Apple iPod touch 16GB
Brilliant new design
When you see the new iPod touch for the first time, you won’t believe your eyes. But when you hold it in your hand — that’s when you get how unbelievable it is. It weighs next to nothing, yet it’s no lightweight: it still does all the gaming, surfing, messaging and everything else you love, more powerfully than ever.
4" Retina display
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 favourite celeb gossip site — everything is sharp, vivid and lifelike. And the new display is a perfect widescreen fit for your HD films and TV programmes because now you can watch them all without letterboxing.
New iSight camera
Some moments are just begging for a photo. Your best friend’s spooky lookalike spotted on the street. An entire wall of graffiti art. A surreal-looking sunset. The iSight camera on iPod touch packs five megapixels — seven times more than the previous generation — and takes such great shots, you can ditch your point-and-shoot camera for good. And the surface of the iSight camera is made from sapphire crystal, whose hardness is second only to diamond when it comes to transparent materials. So the surface of the lens is more resistant to scratches.
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 directly on iPod touch with the iPhoto app, available in the App Store.
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.
Dual-core A5 chip
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 ultra-smooth. 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 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.
Films and TV programmes never looked better on iPod touch. Videos play in true widescreen on the 4-inch Retina display. Colours positively pop thanks to 44 per cent greater saturation. And if you’re in the mood for that film your friends can’t stop raving about, head to the iTunes Store, where you can download it straight to iPod touch.
When you download your favourite music, apps, films, TV programmes 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.
All-new Apple EarPods
Introducing Apple EarPods. They look unlike anything you’ve seen, and sound unlike anything you’ve heard. They fit comfortably and stay put through all kinds of activity, from your impromptu dancing to your hard-core workout. And the audio quality of Apple EarPods is so incredible, they rival high-end headphones that cost hundreds of pounds more.
Games and apps
Fast dual-core performance and sharp graphics make iPod touch the hands-down, thumbs-up, most popular portable gaming device in the world. The App Store features 700,000 apps — including over 100,000 games — many of which are free.3 Boredom, you just got trounced.
