iPod touch takes fun to the next level. It now comes in two colors: black and white.
It includes iOS 5, which gives you over 200 exciting new features. And with iCloud, whatever's on your iPod touch is automatically on your other devices, too.
Free Text Messaging
Now you can send text messages from iPod touch to any other iOS 5 device over Wi-Fi. Text a little. Text a lot. Text as much as your thumbs can handle. It's unlimited. And it's free.
Unlimited texts means no detail spared.
You and your best friend text each other all the time. Even when she's sitting right next to you. With the Messages app on iPod touch, you can text any iOS 5 device using iMessage. It's free and unlimited. You can even send photos, videos, locations, and contacts. Everything happens over Wi-Fi. Your messages are securely encrypted. And if you have more than one iOS device, iMessage keeps the conversation going across all of them.
Just between you and me. And them.
Text one-on-one or send one for all. Group messages let you keep multiple friends in the loop. Give your study group a heads-up about where you're sitting in the library, tell the family you're running late, or plan a meet-up with your blogging circle. Just add multiple recipients in the To field and let the chatter begin.
Get the message?
It can be nerve-racking not knowing if your text was read or even received. Happily, that's a nonissue with iMessage. It lets you know if your text went through. And if your friend has read receipts enabled, you'll see that your message was read. No matter how heavy or light the conversation is, you'll always know when your friend is in the middle of a reply because iMessage shows you. That's comforting for all you impatient types.
Your answer to "No way. Prove it."
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. 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.
Video calling on iPod touch means your friends can see what you're up to, when you're up to it. With a tap, you can call someone on an iPhone, iPad 2, iPod touch, or Mac over Wi-Fi.* And come face-to-face with even more fun.
Tap for a more instant, instant message.
Take "LOL" to the next level and actually see friends laughing. Or bring "XOXO" to life when you blow someone a kiss from miles away. FaceTime on iPod touch makes it possible. FaceTime works right out of the box... just enter your Apple ID and email address. Or create a new email account just for FaceTime. Using FaceTime is as easy as it gets. Say you want to start a video call with your best friend over Wi-Fi. Just tap the FaceTime app and find her entry to start the call. An invitation pops up on her screen asking if she wants to join you. When she accepts, FaceTime begins. It's all perfectly seamless. And it works in both portrait and landscape. See how much fun you can have.
Two cameras make either side its fun side.
iPod touch has two built-in cameras, one on the front above the display and one on the back. The front camera has been tuned for FaceTime. It has just the right field of view and focal length to focus on your face at arm's length. So it always presents you in the best possible light. Which is especially handy when you're talking to someone who's more than just a friend.
The back camera. See and share.
So your friend is sick with a cold and can't make it to the concert. You can share the encore with a FaceTime call. As the band takes the stage and starts playing one of her all-time favorite songs, just tap a button. And before the lead singer can belt out his first note, iPod touch switches to the back camera and to the sure-to-be-legendary performance. Another tap switches to the front camera and to you. Simple, fast, and fun.
HD Camera recording
Director's chair not included.
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.
The next great Internet meme could be yours. iPod touch and its HD video camera go with you everywhere, so you can capture every "What the-?" moment that comes your way.
Trim a little off the ends. Or the middle.
No need to wait until you're back at your computer to edit video. With basic editing built into iPod touch, you can get right down to business. Just drag to select start and end points on a filmstrip. Keep only the parts of the video you want, and turn it into something you and your friends will watch again and again.
Special guest star: iMovie.
You're on an epic road trip, and you want to create a video postcard of everything you've seen and done. Just use the iMovie app... pick it up on the App Store for just $4.99. Built for Multi-Touch, iMovie lets you combine and edit video clips, give them that extra something with dynamic themes, add music and photos, and share your finished movies with the world.
This is so going on YouTube.
Maybe you're in the middle of texting a friend or browsing the web when you look up and suddenly see something that words just can't describe. Launch the camera and record on the fly. Then upload your HD movie directly to YouTube. Or select some video from the Camera Roll and attach it to a new email message, ready to send. Posting to your Facebook page or blog is also just a tap away.
Two cameras. Countless photo ops.
A really cool piece of graffiti art. A cupcake too cute to eat. Your cat camouflaged by stuffed animals. If you want to take a quick photo to post on Twitter, either camera on iPod touch can also capture stills. Use grid lines, pinch-to-zoom gestures, and single-tap exposure lock to compose the perfect shot. Then tap to tweet at will.
Major eye candy.
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.
From the small screen to the big screen.
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. 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
Original soundtrack by you.
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, 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
What iPod touch was made for.
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.
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." Here are a few of our favorite new features in iOS 5:
You're about to beat the final boss. Now's not the time for an alert to get in the way. And it won't, thanks to Notification Center.
Get ready to rumble. Game Center lets you play against friends and people you don't know. And it recommends new games and new opponents.
Game Center lets friends, and soon-to-be-friends, in on all the action. Invite someone to join, then get a game going. Or choose to go up against people you don't know from anywhere around the world in a multiplayer game. It's your world. Everyone else is just playing in it.
Beat them at your own game.
Game Center lets you expand your social gaming network. Exponentially. All anyone needs to play is an iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad.* Just tap the Game Center icon on your Home screen and sign in with your Apple ID. Create an alias and add a profile pic that will be visible to friends and the gaming community. You can also assign several email addresses to Game Center, making it easy for more friends to find you. Get recommendations and download any games you see by tapping links in Game Center. And you're good to go. Once you sign in to Game Center, you're always connected. Until you decide to sign out.
Friends. Soon to be opponents.
Bring your friends along for the ride. Or match. Or mission. Once you're signed in to Game Center, you can invite someone by sending a friend request using a nickname or email address. Or have Game Center suggest some new friends based on the games you play and the opponents you've already met. Your friends show up in a separate Friends list in Game Center. Tap friends' names, and you can see which games they've been playing. You can also check out pending friend requests.
Leader of the pack. Or not.
Who's top dog? The leaderboards will tell you. See how your score ranks against your friends, as well as all players of each game. You can also compare game achievements with your friends. Look for leaderboards and achievements in the Game Center app and in each game app. Let the smack talk begin.
Meet your match.
Feeling like a little multiplayer mayhem? Game Center can help with that. Auto-match will find your friends if they happen to be looking for an auto-match, too. Otherwise, it will set you up with a soon-to-be-friend from anywhere around the world. You can also choose to invite friends and have auto-match fill the number of players needed for a game.
Twitter users rejoice. iOS 5 adds Twitter capabilities to Safari, Photos, Camera, YouTube, and Maps, so you can tweet directly from them.
Forget much? Reminders can fix that for you. Create lists of things to do or remember, set a deadline, and Reminders sends you an alert.
Web articles minus the ads. What bliss. Tap the Reader button in Safari and ads disappear. Add article links to Reading List and read them later.
Photo Stream in iCloud stores all your latest photos and pushes them wirelessly to your other devices. So every pic is everywhere.
You can activate and set up your iPod touch wirelessly, right out of the box. Without the need for a Mac or PC.
A magazine rack that's just for you. That's the idea behind Newsstand. Find all your publications here and even subscribe to new ones.
Your content. On all your devices.
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.
Print everything wirelessly.
Whether it's tickets to a movie or a photo of you and your girlfriend, you can print it right from iPod touch over Wi-Fi. There's no software to download and install, and no cables to connect. With a few taps, you can go from viewing something on iPod touch to holding a printed copy.
Fun from the get-go.
iPod touch gives you serious game. But there are so many other things you can do with it that are just as entertaining. Make a FaceTime call to your best friend. Shoot HD video of your favorite band. Take and post plenty of planking photos. Check out your go-to celebrity gossip blogs. All this and you can check email, watch a movie, listen to music, and more. Impressed? That's just how iPod touch rolls.
