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.

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
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

    Bought this for my daughter's birthday and I must say...it was a hit!! She absolutely loved it and hasn't put it down since!! Love the iPhone 5 size screen, how thin it is, the battery life, heck...everything about it is great!! Got her the 32gb because she takes a lot of pictures and videos. Now my 6 year old son tells me he wants one too...looks like I'll be buying another in a few years LOL! Thanks B&H!!

    Texting only works when you have wifi at home or in another location where unsecured wifi is available unless the location plans to give you a code to use. Was planning on having my daughter text me from school for rides home after sports practices but found out they don't have unsecured or open wifi. Plus apple said I would need to have an apple product to receive the text messages. Didn't realize all this when purchasing it. Plus you need the exact shipping boxes in order to return it to the company so that it looks new to return it. You have up to 30 days to return it but it need to look exactly the same way it came in which means all the boxes need to be saved. Which I guess I didn't realize when I opened it. Apple says they can't do much about it since I bought it through a third party vendor.

                                10/10, the best ipod touch ever!!!!
                                Lighter, slimmer, taller and ten times faster than the ipod touch 4
                                I recommend everyone to get this ipod!!!!

                                    Texting only works when you have wifi at home or in another location where unsecured wifi is available unless the location plans to give you a code to use. Was planning on having my daughter text me from school for rides home after sports practices but found out they don't have unsecured or open wifi. Plus apple said I would need to have an apple product to receive the text messages. Didn't realize all this when purchasing it. Plus you need the exact shipping boxes in order to return it to the company so that it looks new to return it. You have up to 30 days to return it but it need to look exactly the same way it came in which means all the boxes need to be saved. Which I guess I didn't realize when I opened it. Apple says they can't do much about it since I bought it through a third party vendor.

                                      First and foremost this thing sounds awesome when run through a car stereo. I use it primarily during my daily commute. Sleek, lightweight and solid are the best descriptors.

                                              The iPod Touch arrived in good condition and on time. Also, it was cheaper than the standard Apple price, which is hard to find. And with free shipping and no tax, I actually saved a substantial amount vs buying at the [*]. Definitely a positive experience.
