More power to play with.
A powerful A8 chip. A stunning Retina display. An incredibly portable design. Whether you like fast-paced action, amazingly detailed strategy games, or beautifully intricate puzzles, iPod touch offers the ultimate mobile gaming experience.
A8 chip. Satisfy your need for speed.
iPod touch features an Apple-designed A8 chip built on 64-bit architecture. This desktop-class chip features GPU performance up to 10 times faster than the previous-generation iPod touch — so the graphics in your favorite games are more responsive and look more vivid than ever before — and CPU performance is up to six times faster. And you get the same great battery life, with up to 40 hours of music and 8 hours of video playback.
To get the greatest graphics performance out of the A8 chip, we created Metal — a new technology that allows developers to design highly immersive console-style games. Metal is optimized to let the CPU and GPU work together to deliver detailed graphics and complex visual effects. So every imaginary world feels more realistic.
M8 Motion Coprocessor
The M8 motion coprocessor continually measures physical motion from advanced sensors, including a gyroscope and accelerometer. Offloading this work from the A8 chip to the M8 improves power efficiency. The M8 also provides accurate fitness tracking information, such as steps and distance, right to the Health app.
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 friends’ photos — everything is sharp, vivid, and lifelike. And the display is a perfect widescreen fit for your HD movies and TV shows.
You’ve got a great eye.
See what you can do with even better cameras.
iPod touch features a new 8- megapixel iSight camera and an improved FaceTime HD camera, so you can take some of the most stunning photos and videos you’ve ever captured. These new cameras come with features like slo-mo and burst mode, as well as better noise reduction and improved face detection. And with iCloud Photo Library, you can easily access, edit, and share your photos on all your devices.
Fun for the whole family.
Now up to six family members can share purchases from iTunes, iBooks, and the App Store without sharing accounts. So you can give your favorite people access to all your favorite things. Family Sharing makes it easy for family members to share photo albums, calendars, and even their location. You can even create Apple IDs for children under 13 years old so they can participate, too. Parents can require children to ask permission before making purchases, as well as limit which websites can be accessed in Safari.
iPod touch includes the latest in wireless technologies. When you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network, you can make FaceTime calls, send messages, post photos, and download your favorite games and music. And with new support for 802.11ac, you’ll experience up to 3x faster Wi-Fi speeds than with 802.11n. iPod touch also supports Bluetooth 4.1 technology, so you can connect a pair of headphones for listening to your favorite tunes or a game controller for racking up a new high score.
