Share good times with friends over FaceTime. Shoot scenes in HD. Or play games on the highest-resolution iPod screen ever. In fact, iPod touch has so much technology, you'll forget it's an iPod.
At a glance:
- FaceTime. Look who's talking. FaceTime brings video calling to iPod touch. So now you can see your friends and talk to them.
- Retina display. Truly visionary. With remarkable 960-by-640 resolution, everything you see and do on iPod touch looks even more incredible.
- HD video recording. From HD to OMG. iPod touch lets you record, edit, and share stunning HD video. And because it's always with you, you'll never miss a great video op.
- Even better gaming. One giant leap for funkind. The A4 processor helps give you even more amazing gaming. And Game Center lets you play against friends anywhere in the world.
FaceTime on iPod touch lets you hang out, catch up, and goof off with friends in an entirely new way.
With just a tap, you can see what your friends are up to - literally. Witness a prank in action. Or watch your friend on the other side of the country crack up at your stories from last night - new iPod touch to new iPod touch or iPhone 4 over Wi-Fi. And all you need to get started is an Apple ID and an email account. You can choose an email account you already have or, if you prefer, set up a new one. You'll never see fun the same way again.
Two cameras, two views.
You can never have, or see, too much fun. That's why iPod touch has two cameras: One on the front, which focuses on you. And one on the back, which focuses on what's in front of you. FaceTime lets you switch between them at any time during a video call. Just tap a button. So if you're people-watching at a coffee shop and you spot someone entertaining (or famous), your friend gets to see, too.
The Retina display on iPod touch brings out the awesome in anything on it.
That's because it's the highest-resolution iPod screen ever, with four times the pixel count of previous iPod models. In fact, there are so many pixels, the human eye can't distinguish individual ones.Which makes graphics and images stunningly sharp, and text amazingly crisp.
Just like the printed page.
"You should have seen it!" is a thing of the past. Because with iPod touch, you'll always have a great HD video camera with you. Say you're at a party and you see someone popping and locking. You're ready to capture the moment in all its glory. In high-definition 720p video. You can record video in low-light settings, thanks to the advanced backside illumination sensor.
You can even edit and create your ownmini blockbuster right on iPod touch using the new iMovie app - with Apple-designed themes, titles, and transitions. It's available on the App Store for $4.99. iMovie lets you make polished movies right on iPod touch.
It's time to make a game plan.
The new Game Center app on iPod touch lets you add more players to your gaming network. Invite friends to join. Then totally dominate them.
Take a look at how your score ranks against your friends and other players of each game. Compare game achievements with your friends.
Put together a select group of friends to play with. Or choose to automatically go up against people you don't know in a multiplayer game. So get in the game. And get your friends in it, too.
With iPod touch, you don't just play your music. You hear it, and see it, in entirely different ways. Let Genius search your library and automatically create a mix just for you. Or give Genius playlist a go, and Genius will use a song you really love to find other tracks from your library that go great with it. You can also view album art in Cover Flow. Or shake to shuffle for a fresh take on your music library.
Your favorite movies and TV shows are now playing on a subway train or plane near you. Because you can buy movies and TV shows, or just rent them, right on iPod touch.
Shop the iTunes Store and choose from thousands of must-see titles to fill your iPod touch. Then watch them on the amazing 3.5-inch color widescreen Retina display.
Advanced engineering at play
Pioneering technology built into iPod touch is how you're able to flick, tap, and pinch. It's what makes a racing game feel so real. It's why you're able to see a friend crack up at your jokes from across the globe. And it's the reason iPod touch is the most incredible iPod you'll ever own.
Looks can be amazing.
iPod touch has an all-new design that makes it the thinnest, lightest, most amazing iPod touch ever.
Holding one is all the proof you need. With its curved design, iPod touch is now a mere 7.2 millimeters thin. Its engineered glass front and stainless steel back feel sleek and smooth in your hand. Turn it on, and you're instantly blown away by the brilliant Retina display. iPod touch is the perfect combination of stunning design and revolutionary technology - brilliant from the outside in.
Retina display. A blast from the future.
There are lots of reasons you won't want to take your eyes off the new iPod touch. The 960-by-640 backlit LCD display, for one.
It packs 326 pixels per inch, making it the highest-resolution iPod screen ever.
To achieve this, Apple engineers developed pixels so small - a mere 78 micrometers across - that the human eye can't distinguish individual pixels.
Even though you can't see them, you'll definitely notice the difference. Text is remarkably sharp and graphics are incredibly vivid.
Apple A4 processor. More power to you.
The Apple A4 chip is behind, or rather underneath, all the fun you can have on iPod touch.
Apple engineers designed the A4 chip to be a remarkably powerful yet remarkably power-efficient mobile processor. With it, iPod touch can easily perform complex jobs such as multitasking, editing video, and placing FaceTime calls. All while maximizing battery life. And fun.
Gyro + Accelerometer. Smooth moves.
iPod touch just learned some new moves. It now includes a built-in three-axis gyroscope.
When paired with the accelerometer, the gyro makes iPod touch capable of advanced motion sensing such as user acceleration, full 3D attitude, and rotation rate.
Translation: More motion gestures and greater precision for an even better gaming experience.
Two Cameras. Double the fun.
iPod touch captures video with two built-in cameras.
It shoots amazing HD 720p video from the back camera. And with its advanced backside illumination sensor, it captures beautiful footage even in low-light settings.
All while the built-in microphone records conversations, music, or any audio at the same time. And on the front of iPod touch, the built-in camera is perfect for making FaceTime calls and shooting self-portraits.
It's surprising how much fun can fit into something so small.
Multi-Touch. Control at your fingertips.
When you put your finger on iPod touch, how does it just start doing what you want it to do? It's a chain reaction, really. The Multi-Touch display layers a protective shield over a capacitive panel that senses your touch using electrical fields. It then transmits that information to the Retina display below it.
So you can glide through albums with Cover Flow, flick through photos and enlarge them with a pinch, zoom in and out on a section of a web page, and control game elements precisely.
iOS 4. The world's most advanced mobile operating system.
With its easy-to-use interface, amazing features, and rock-solid stability, iOS - Apple's mobile operating system - is the foundation of iPod touch. And even as others try to catch up, the technologies and features built into iOS 4 keep it years ahead of the competition.
Elegant and intuitive interface. You were born to use it.
The first time you pick up an iPod touch, you know how to use it. That's because the revolutionary Multi-Touch interface in iOS was designed for the most natural pointing device ever: your finger.
