When you see the new iPod touch for the first time, you won't believe your eyes. But when you hold it in your hand - that's when you get how unbelievable it is. It weighs next to nothing, yet it's no lightweight: It still does all the gaming, surfing, messaging, and everything else you love, more powerfully than ever.
All-new Apple EarPods
Apple designers and engineers tested 124 different prototypes of the EarPods on over 600 people to create the all-new Apple EarPods. The result? A really comfortable fit and incredible sound.
The iPodtouch loop comes color-matched to your iPod touch, or you can buy other colors separately. It's a fun new way to keep your iPodtouch safe at hand.
iPod touch now has a bigger, 4-inch Retina display, so all your fun takes on a bigger size. Your hairpin car-racing turns, your dance party playlist, your favorite celeb gossip site - everything is sharp, vivid, and lifelike. And the new display is a perfect widescreen fit for your HD movies and TV shows because now you can watch them all without letterboxing.
The new iPodtouch screen gets taller, but not wider, so you still have complete one-handed control.
Some moments are just begging for a photo. Your best friend's bizarro look-alike spotted on the street. An entire wall of graffiti art. A surreal-looking sunset. The iSight camera on iPod touch packs 5 megapixels - seven times more than the previous generation - and takes such great shots, you can ditch your point-and-shoot camera for good.
Advanced optics, tap to focus, an LED flash, and face detection help you get the shot every time. The iSight camera shoots 1080p HD video, and the front camera gets a boost for better FaceTime calls. And you can edit, crop, and enhance your photos right from iPod touch using the Photos app. For more editing options, try iPhoto or iMovie, available in the App Store.

So games are incredibly responsive and realistic. Your samurai swordplay is sharper than ever, your zombie-dodging ultrasmooth. And because the A5 chip isn't a power hog, you get the same great battery life: up to 40 hours of music or 8 hours of video on a single charge.1 Soyou can keep on swinging, slicing, and racing. And listening, watching, andbrowsing.
Every iPod is all about music. But iPod touch is about music and then some. It lets you tote around your entire music and video library for an instant fix of entertainment wherever you are.
Music and iTunes
The latest song you have on endless repeat. The indie track your friend recommended. That classic rock album your parents loved - and, it turns out, you love too. Your music library is yours alone, and your iPod touch is where it all plays. And with every kind of music on iTunes just a tap away, you can find the perfect song for whatever mood - or room or car - you're in.
Movies and TV shows never looked better on iPod touch. Videos play in true widescreen on the 4-inch Retina display. Colors positively pop thanks to 44 percent greater saturation.

When you download your favorite music, apps, movies, TV shows, and books from the iTunes Store to iPod touch, iCloud makes all that content accessible on all your other devices - iPhone, iPad, Mac, or PC - so you never have to connect cables or manually sync to transfer your content. It's easy like that.
Introducing Apple EarPods. They look unlike anything you've seen, and sound unlike anything you've heard.

It can be nerve-wracking not knowing if your text was read or even received. Happily, Messages lets you know if your text went through.
