A8 chip, 8MP iSight camera, 5 stunning colors.
Your music. Wherever you go.
iPod touch is the perfect way to carry your music collection in your pocket. With the iTunes Store — the world’s largest music catalog — you can load up your iPod touch with your favorite songs. And thanks to iCloud, everything you purchase through the iTunes Store is automatically available on all your devices for free. To enhance your music experience even more, Apple Music is available on your iPod touch, right in the Music app.
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 and iOS 8, 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.
Slow down life’s fastest moments. The slo-mo feature lets you shoot HD video at 120 fps in 720p. You can even record and then select the portion you want to slow down.
FaceTime HD Camera
Burst mode helps you take great self and group portraits by continuously capturing 10 photos per second. iPod touch analyzes every shot in real time, comparing sharpness and clarity and even detecting when someone’s eyes are closed. Then iPod touch suggests individual photos or a sequence of photos that you might like best.

1. 1GB = 1 billion bytes; actual formatted capacity less.
2. Weight varies by configuration and manufacturing process.
3. For iPod touch with Maps, the Maps application provides your approximate location using information based on your proximity to known Wi-Fi networks (when on and available). The more accurate the available information, the smaller the circle identifying your position on the map. The feature is not available in all areas. Known Wi-Fi networks are predominantly in urban areas. In order to provide your location, data is collected in a form that does not personally identify you. If you do not want such data collected, do not enable the feature. Not enabling the feature will not impact the functionality of your iPod touch.
4. Siri may not be available in all languages or in all areas, and features may vary by area. Internet access required.
5. Testing conducted by Apple in June 2015 using preproduction iPod touch hardware and software. The playlist consisted of 358 unique audio tracks purchased from the iTunes Store (256-Kbps AAC encoding); video content was purchased from the iTunes Store app on iPod touch. All settings were default except: Wi-Fi was associated with a network; the Wi-Fi feature Ask to Join Networks and Auto-Brightness were turned off. Battery tests are conducted with specific iPod units; actual results may vary. Battery life and number of charge cycles vary by use and settings.
