Some things are just better explained face-to-face. Even when you’re miles apart. On the front of iPod touch is a built-in camera perfect for making FaceTime video calls.1 Your smile, your laugh, your gasps, your “sad panda” face, even what’s in front of you. Your friend sees it all, live and in full effect.
HD video recording
iPod touch features a second camera on the back, which lets you shoot amazing 720p HD video. 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.
There are lots of reasons you won’t want to take your eyes off 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 they make. Text is remarkably sharp and graphics are incredibly vivid.
Your music, photos, and video — a.k.a. all the great stuff on your iPod touch — can stream wirelessly to an HDTV and speakers. A feature called AirPlay makes it happen. It works with AirPlay-enabled speakers or Apple TV on a Wi-Fi network.2 Just tap the AirPlay icon on iPod touch and blast some tracks, crack up over photos, or have a YouTube-a-thon. Big time.
Music + iTunes
When iPod came on the scene years ago, it was all about music. iPod touch is the evolution of that first iPod, but one thing remains the same: It’s still about music. With up to 64GB of storage capacity,3 iPod touch lets you keep thousands of songs with you all the time. And when your favorite artist drops an album, or you’re feeling like it’s time for some new music, the iTunes Store is just a tap away.
Games + Apps
It’s hard to be bored when you have instant access to over 500,000 apps. Available in almost every category, they’re just a tap away at the App Store. And when it comes to games and entertainment titles — over 100,000 and counting — no other platform comes close to iPod touch. Which probably explains why it’s the world’s most popular portable gaming device.
iOS - The world’s most advanced mobile operating system.
Running the show on every iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad is iOS. It lets you browse, read, and see everything just by touching the screen. It also includes all the fun, powerful, and innovative built-in apps you use every day, many times a day. And the latest version, iOS 5, is packed with over 200 exciting new features that will make you say, “Best. iPod. Ever.”
Thanks to iCloud, your iPod touch has an even tighter bond with your Mac or PC (and your iPhone or iPad). iCloud stores your music, apps, games, latest photos, and more and makes them accessible on your other devices. And it keeps your email, contacts, and calendars up to date across them, too. It’s all automatic. There’s no syncing required, no management required, no anything required. iCloud does the work for you.4
