iPod Touch 16GB 5th Generation - Black and Silver
About this item
Fun was built into every millimeter of the thinnest, lightest 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.
iPod touch features a 6-mm ultrathin design and brilliant, 4-inch Retina display. The front-facing FaceTime HD camera lets you make video calls, record HD video, and capture self-portraits. Discover music, movies, and more from the iTunes Store, or browse apps and games from the App Store. And with iOS 6—the world’s most advanced mobile operating system—you get Siri, iMessage, Facebook integration, Game Center, and more.
It’s the thinnest, lightest iPod touch ever.
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 nights out.
Keep fun close at hand.
The iPod touch loop is a colorful 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.
When you see 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-inch Retina display. Big fun.
iPod touch has a 4-inch Retina display, so all your fun has a beautiful canvas. Your hairpin car-racing turns, your dance party playlist, your favorite celeb gossip site — everything is sharp, vivid, and lifelike. And the display is a perfect widescreen fit for your HD movies and TV shows because you can watch them all without letterboxing.
One hand rules the screen
The Retina display is tall but not wide. That means everything you do on iPod touch can be a one-handed operation, and your thumb has room to roam. The display is advanced, with finger-friendly Mulit-touch technology built into the glass instead of beneath it. So less gets between you and y our games, music, messages – whatever you love to see and do.
FaceTime camera. Smile.
The front-facing FaceTime HD camera lets you make video calls, record HD video, and capture self-portraits.
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 great battery life: up to 40 hours of music or 8 hours of video on a single charge.2 So you can keep on swinging, slicing, and racing. And listening, watching, and browsing.
Music and video. Up your entertainment quotient.
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.
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.3 It’s easy like that.
Games ad apps. Get ready for the big games.
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 more than 800,000 apps — including over 100,000 games — many of which are free.4 Boredom, you just got served.
This is where gamers become friends. And friends become foes. Game Center is your social gaming hub, where you create a profile, invite other gamers on your next mission, and claim top-of-the-leaderboards bragging rights. Start a challenge with a random player around the world or with your buddy down the block. Let the schooling begin.
More from the App Store
Say you want to learn how to speak your name in Russian. Or find out who sings that great song you’re hearing in the store. Or get that photo filter that makes your pics look super vintage-y. Chances are, if you can think of it, you can find it in the App Store. And even if you can’t think of it, you can probably find it in the App Store.
Built-in apps. Fully stocked fun.
It’s not just about what’s out there. It’s also about what’s in here. iPod touch comes loaded with lots of powerful built-in apps. Send unlimited texts with iMessage over Wi-Fi. See your friend’s every expression with a FaceTime video call.5 Check your email with Mail, and browse the web with Safari. And iOS 6 adds Siri, Facebook integration, Maps, Passbook, and more.
Sharing and staying connected. Know what’s up. The minute is goes down.
iPod touch makes it easier and quicker than ever to stay in touch, with Facebook and Twitter integration, FaceTime, iMessage, and more.
With deep Facebook and Twitter integration, iPod touch lets you be even more social with your social network. Post photos instantly to Facebook from the Photos app, see your friends’ birthdays in Calendar and Contacts, even Like apps and songs — and see what your friends Like. You can also tweet pics and videos directly from whatever app you’re in. Before you head out the door, Siri can tell you whether you need your jacket, what time the movie starts, and which pizza place has the best Yelp reviews.
Siri on iPod touch. It’s all the fun you could ask for.
Siri will wake you up, open your apps, give you movie and restaurant picks, answer your most random questions, and remind you to do stuff. In a nice way. All you have to do is ask.
AirPlay. From one widescreen to another.
With AirPlay, you can wirelessly stream whatever’s on your iPod touch to your HDTV via Apple TV.7 Say you have some friends over and want a little more real estate to show them something that’s on your iPod touch — a video of you punking a friend or an epic scene from your favorite movie. Tap the AirPlay icon from the app you’re in — such as Photos, Music, Videos, or Safari — and everything on your small screen plays on your big screen. You can also stream music to any AirPlay-enabled speakers or AirPort Express-connected speakers, so your sounds sound even bigger.
And AirPlay Mirroring lets you share exactly what’s happening on your iPod touch screen at any given moment with everyone in the room — on your HDTV via Apple TV. Show a new site you discovered. Stream games live as you’re playing, and give your alien butt-kicking skills the full display they deserve.
Bluetooth. Wireless is more.
With Bluetooth built into iPod touch, pairing with Bluetooth-enabled headphones and speakers is a cinch. And if your car has a Bluetooth-enabled sound system, you can play your tunes to it right from iPod touch. So you never have to miss a beat.
Designed with the Environment in Mind.
Good design takes into account environmental impact. That’s why nearly every Apple product is made from highly recyclable materials like aluminum, and why we refuse to use harmful toxins.
Every iPod touch is free of toxic materials like brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). In fact, Apple has one of the strictest BFR-free and PVC-free standards in the industry. We even disassemble products and test all the components in our Cupertino lab to make sure our suppliers meet our environmental standards.
