We added all our most advanced features to iPod touch. Just for the fun of it. 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, youll forget its an iPod.
Pioneering technology built into iPod touch is how youre able to flick, tap, and pinch. Its what makes a racing game feel so real. Its why youre able to see a friend crack up at your jokes from across the globe. And its the reason iPod touch is the most incredible iPod youll ever own.
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.
There are lots of reasons you wont 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 cant distinguish individual pixels. Even though you cant see them, youll definitely notice the difference. Text is remarkably sharp and graphics are incredibly vivid.
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.
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.
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. Its surprising how much fun can fit into something so small.
When you put your finger on iPod touch, how does it just start doing what you want it to do? Its 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.
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. Youll never see fun the same way again.
You can never have, or see, too much fun. Thats why iPod touch has two cameras: One on the front, which focuses on you. And one on the back, which focuses on whats in front of you. FaceTime lets you switch between them at any time during a video call. Just tap a button. So if youre 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. Thats because its 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 cant 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, youll always have a great HD video camera with you. Say youre at a party and you see someone popping and locking. Youre 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 own mini blockbuster right on iPod touch using the new iMovie app with Apple-designed themes, titles, and transitions.
Its 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 dont know in a multiplayer game. So get in the game. And get your friends in it, too.
With iPod touch, you dont 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.
