The 16GB iPod touch (White & Silver) (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 touch offers a powerful A5 processor. The iPod touch also features the stunning Retina display with a Multi-Touch interface found on the iPhone 5.

The iPod touch has front and rear cameras for taking photos and videos, as well as having live video chats over Wi-Fi with FaceTime. The internal accelerometer and 3-axis gyroscope provide more motion gestures and terrific precision for an amazing gaming experience, which can be combined with the Game Center feature of iOS to play against your friends. 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 7. You will be able to upgrade to iOS 8 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.

Built-in Apps

Siri
This iPod touch has Siri, which lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings, place FaceTime calls and more.
Game Center

iMessage

App Store
With over 700,000 apps to choose from, you'll be able to find the app for just about anything. The good news is that most apps are also free, but for premium apps, you'll have to pay a fee.

      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 (Blue) (5th Generation):

        Thinner than iPhone 5 and yet still retains the same 4-inch retina display. A big improvement over the last model and with many new enhancements and newer technology in this model. many of the features such as camera, wifi, and battery life has been improved.Well worth the price considering the improvements. Now uses lighting cables which are smaller and easier to use. Cable fits in any way you put it in. No more guessing which is up or down.I am a bit dissapointed in the camera quality as we are now accustomed to expect HDR quality like we now have on our current smartphones. Also, wall charger is not included. Only the USB lightning cable. Otherwise, its a fantastic product.

        It has been great for reminders and notes about various bible studies. The e-sword app has been a great aid for daily devotions. I also am planning on traveling to Europe this year, and keeping my flight and reservation info is made simple with with apps that are available for free. I also downloaded some language apps and wow the help that this will offer just amplifies my visions and interests. I am glad i decided to get this. It has a sleek design, the space gray color is nice, the camera is great, and the audio is really nice as well.

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

                  I bought one of these a few months ago to replace my old iPod touch 32GB 4th generation. I have a separate non-smartphone and use this to do all the smartphone business. It's totally worth the money.

                  Compared to the 4th generation, it's a lot lighter. The screen is taller and thinner too, which I really like. It's a clean new look that goes along with iOS 7 and up.

                  As for downgrading the storage space, it's not that noticeable. 16GB is all you really need for average use.

                      Our family has a number of iPod Touches of different generations and find them both fun and useful. I don't use a cell phone and do use this for voice over the internet, etc. My main gripe is that the older OS slow down way too fast and I suspect it's planned obsolescence---but I'm no techie so I don't really know about that.

                                            Pros:
                                            -It was new in box
                                            - It is one of the skinniest apple products
                                            - B&H had the cheapest price I could find for this item

                                            Cons:
                                            - Doesn't pair up well with modern apple mobile device speeds
                                            - A little slow on iOS 8

                                            I purchased a new I touch a couple of weeks ago and I'm really happy with the piece so far.
                                            Besides for that, it was a great pleasure ordering from B&H. They have the best service in town.
