The 16GB iPod touch (Yellow) (5th Generation) from Apple has now reached its 5th generation, offering an incredible iPod touch as a music player, video camera, pocket computer and portable gaming device all in a single sleek anodized aluminum finish with exceptional battery life.

The iPod The touch has front and rear cameras for taking photos and videos, as well as having live video chats over Wi-Fi with FaceTime.

The touch also connects to the App Store and iTunes, offers multitasking, allows you to connect to the Internet, check email, and much more.

Please note that some models may come with iOS 6. You will be able to upgrade to iOS 7 for free via the Software Update option in Settings.

Design

Anodized Aluminum
This iPod touch features an anodized aluminum unibody design, similar to the Apple's MacBook line. It's only 0.24" (6.1mm) thin and weighs just 3.1 ounces (88 grams). Aside from the ultraportable design, the anodized aluminum unibody features a supersmooth finish highlighted by its polished beveled edges.
A Wide Variety of Colors
This iPod touch now comes in a variety of colors. You can choose from black, white, pink, yellow and blue. However, don't be fooled. The colors are not just painted on the surface, but they've been anodized right into the aluminum body. What you get is a saturated color that still lets the luster of the metal shine through.
4" Retina Display
The screen of this iPod touch didn't get any wider, just taller. This means you can still operate the iPod touch with just one hand and your thumb gets extra room to navigate through iOS. The display also got more advanced, with finger-friendly, gestured-enabled Multi-Touch technology built right into the glass instead of beneath it. The 4" Retina display has an in-plane switching (IPS) panel that is capable of producing a native resolution of 1136 x 640 at 326 pixels per inch (ppi), an 800:1 contrast ratio, and a 500cd/m² max brightness. The screen also has a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating.
iPod touch Loop
The iPod touch loop is a colorful way to keep your iPod touch securely attached to your wrist. You can use it to shoot from a hard-to-reach camera angle, flip your iPod touch up for a quick iMessage or just carry it around pocketless. The loop also keeps your iPod touch safe from a slip, fumble or drop because it's securely connected to your wrist. Please note that the iPod touch loop is sold separately.
Apple EarPods
While the older Apple earbuds have gotten a lot of criticism for not fitting well and having poor sound quality, Apple has reinvented them into the Apple EarPods. The Apple EarPods were designed to fit the ear, not the other way around. It has a front vent, a rear vent, a bass vent and a primary acoustic outlet to provide deeper bass and better audio all around while staying stable in your ears.
Eco-Friendly
Good design doesn't only mean making a stylish product, but also taking into account the environmental impact. That's why the iPod touch from Apple is made from highly recyclable materials, such as aluminum. Also, every iPod touch is free of toxic materials, such as brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC).

Music

Cover Flow
Turn the iPod touch into landscape mode to reveal Cover Flow. In Cover Flow, you can glide through your music by album art with the flick of your finger. The taller 4" Retina display also gives you more space to maneuver.
Genius Playlists and Mixes
Genius finds complementary songs of your favorite songs and puts them in a Genius playlist for your convenience. You can also let Genius automatically search your library to find songs that go great together and make mixes for you.
iTunes and iCloud
Buy and download new music on your iPod touch over Wi-Fi with the iTunes app. If you have your iPod touch linked to your iCloud account, it will automatically push your just purchased songs to all your other Apple devices, such as your iPad, iPhone, Mac and even PC computers.
Bluetooth and Airplay
Pair your iPod touch to Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as a pair of headphones. You can also stream music from your iPod touch to AirPlay-enabled speakers over Wi-Fi to your home entertainment system via Apple TV or any speaker connected to an AirPort Express.

Camera

Rear iSight Camera
This iPod touch has a rear iSight camera, which has tap to focus, an LED flash and face detection. With the 5-megapixel iSight camera, you'll be taking pictures with seven times the amount of pixels of the previous iPod touch as well as recording video in 1080p, complete with video stabilization.
Front FaceTime HD Camera
This iPod touch also has a front 1.2-megapixel FaceTime HD camera, capable of recording video in 720p. You can also access FaceTime to chat with friends and family in crystal clear HD quality, using the front FaceTime HD camera.
Panorama
With the Panorama function, you'll be able to point, shoot and move the camera across the scene for up to 240 degrees. The gyroscope, A5 chip and sophisticated software work together to create a single seamless shot.
In-App Editing
Crop, rotate, enhance and remove red-eye directly from your iPod touch. You can also edit video as well. Just drag to select start and end points on the filmstrip. For more photo and video editing options, iPhoto and iMovie are available in the Apple App Store (sold separately).
Shared Photo Stream
With Shared Photo Streams in iCloud, you can share your favorite photos with friends and family at a press of a button. You can also post to Facebook or attach it to a tweet right from the Camera app.

      I purchased the 16GB ipod touch to do iOS development work and was pleased that the product mostly met my expected quality level for apple's products. My one complaint may be that it felt slightly lighter and flimsier then I would hope from apple - but not to an unacceptable degree. I'd recommend this product to someone who wanted to use apps and games available through the app store but didn't want an iphone.

      Bought this iPod for my 10 year old daughter thinking that I would get her the latest iPod. I figured this was better than the 4th generation iPod touch since it had 8 more gb of disk space. Once I received it, I realized that it only has a camera in the front of the iPod. There is no camera in the back so it is very hard for her to take pictures of things other than herself. I recommend buying the 4th generation 8gb iPod unless you want to shell out the money for the 5th generation 32gb iPod.

        Comments about 16GB iPod touch (White & Silver) (5th Generation):

        I upgraded this from my 4th generation iPod touch. It was stuck on iOS 6 and couldn't load any 3rd party apps.

        The iPod I had before was 32GB but I don't mind switching down to 16. At this price, you can't complain.

        It's fast. It's beautiful. And it's running iOS 8.

        My school has its own app for scheduling each period and I finally can use the iOS 8 version. I'm so happy.

            For an additional $ you can get one *with* a 5 MP...so if you actually want one without the camera, this is for you.

              I love the iPod for work and for working out, but now I use it in the car with Bluetooth. Nice to see that the iPod is now basically a iPad-mini mini. It does all of the things that an iPad does basically, including, but not limited to Facetime. The only thing I would like to see changed on the new version is similar to what was wrong with old versions. The playlist function and organization of the music is inferior to Amazon's format. It is too difficult to find music sometimes and to add music to a playlist if not going alphabetically. I don't have an answer to this problem, just noting it. Overall, great product.

                      We bought this product to help play Pandora on a bluetooth speaker downstairs in our new home. The additional options to be able to check your email without having to go upstairs to the desktop is nice, however, the small print and constant need to enlarge images/text is a bit annoying.

                            I like that it doesn't have so many GB that I would most likely NEVER use in my lifetime. The only reason I give it 4 stars is I just wish they had the camera in the back like the 32GB ones, and the different colors. But otherwise, I don't need more than this iPod.

                            I use this iPod daily and it's really just an overall great device. I was initially a little put off by it because it's so thin and light, but it's actually very comfortable to hold. The touch screen is very fast and responsive, like every other Apple device I've owned. The screen is very clear and vibrant. The battery life is fantastic.

                            I am a little disappointed it didn't come with a wall charger (just the USB charging cable) but I think that's the standard with most MP3 players. It also kind of sucks that there is no camera on the back like with previous models, but not a deal breaker by any means. Great product!

                                Got this for my Dad who wanted an MP3 player. Spotify was a better fit for him than downloading songs individually so we went with the iPod. Now he has Spotify's awesome library, can facebook and even text from the iPod. Great buy, though I might recommend upgrading to the 32 gig as you get a camera in that model.

                                  I purchased this for my kids as a gift for their exceptional grades.
                                  This is a great item, the only issue is that it only has the front camera (which faces you), would love the back camera but that comes with the 64GB version.
                                  Overall my kids love it.

                                      This ipod has only one camera and its forward facing so great for selfies and face time, not so great for general picture taking.
