The 32GB iPod touch (Black & Slate) (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.

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
Throw down a challenge, go head to head with your friends or make new friends (or foes) from all around the world. Check leaderboards for scores and achievements and share your results on Facebook
iMessage
Send unlimited text messages over Wi-Fi to another iOS or Mac device. It's free and you can even send photos, videos, locations and contacts. You can even have Siri send a message for you
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
FaceTime
Video chat with friends and family using the front 1.2-megapixel FaceTime HD camera. You can FaceTime with anyone on an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or a Mac computer over Wi-Fi

    The iPod Touch 5th generation has come a long way since the launch of the first generation iPod a few years go. There are several features that I love about this new Touch. My quick impressions so far after having used it for just under a week.

    FORM FACTOR - The Touch is thinner than iPhone 5 though still has the same 4-inch retina display. The overall experience is significantly better using this device compared to the Touch 4. I was pretty happy with my Touch 4, but now looking at it after playing with the Touch 5, it just seems small! The 5 is thinner and lighter than even the iPhone 5. Very slick.

    BODY - The back is anodized aluminum finish in amazing colors. The matte finish makes it less scratch-prone (at least so far it seems that way) compared to the steel-backed Touch 4. The body is slightly more rectangular and less curved than the 4, making it easier to use the side volume buttons. I honestly don't think a case is necessary for this device given its beautiful colors and fairly scratch-resistant body, but that again would be entirely a personal decision. Some folks are prone to dropping devices in which case a case is a must. My 2 cents - a transparent case would probably be best which at least allows the beauty of the device to come through. Putting on a thick black case on this would be doing it severe injustice!

    CAMERA - The camera is in my opinion one of the best features of the Touch. The Touch has a 5MP camera, which I think is the same as the iPhone though I could be wrong on this. It gives 1080p recording in this slick device, makes me think back of the loaded camcorders we carried and converted tapes to DVDs, and that wasn't so long ago! The camera, same as the iPhone camera, gives the panoramic option which lets you capture a pretty wide angle shot. I tried this feature only in the house, but due to different lighting in the different areas that I was shooting, the picture didn't come out so well. I'm sure if taken with correct lighting or outdoors, the panoramic pictures would be spectacular. I wonder if the camera is meant to be the main feature of the Touch that Apple wants to push, given that they included a hand strap with the touch, just like most cameras come with.

    A5 PROCESSOR - The difference in speed because of the A5 processor is quite noticeable, for the better. It makes the device much faster - for apps, loading videos, etc. For the few apps that I use often, the speed is remarkable.

    EARBUDS - I don't use the Apple earphones because they have been uncomfortable for me personally. I tried the new earbuds and these fit much better. Sound quality maybe just about the same, at least I didn't notice any significant difference. I'm happy using my Bose or Sony headphones with the Touch. The speaker on the iPod is decent for light listening or watching videos. It's really not meant to give surround sound, but the speakers do their job fine.

    CONNECTOR - The lightning connector is probably better for charging speeds and data transfer (I guess), but the only good thing that I find about this is that the cable can be inserted either way into the Touch. Unlike the previous 30-pin connector that could only be inserted one way up. One thing to note - and this might have just been me but I did see some reviews earlier to this effect - the USB end of the adapter is probably the same as all USBs. But, for some reason, when I plugged it in to my car charger, it got stuck in it. I struggled for a good 5 minutes to get it out. I had no problems with my 30-pin connector cable with this charger. I later read reviews for the car charger and other folks had mentioned the same thing. Not sure what the issue was, maybe just a few isolated events. But for now I am not using any non-Apple approved charger, even if it is just a USB charger. Another problem I have faced is that when I connect the iPod to the USB jack in my car, there are times when the sound comes through the iPod instead of the car speakers. The iPod is connected and shows "Accessory Connected". I then have to unlplug the device and plug it back in, and then it works fine. This has happened 2-3 times over the past few days. I'm not sure if this has to do with the lightning cable or the car's USB port.

    SOFTWARE - It runs on iOS6 and the speed is amazing. Note that it doesn't have Google Maps which I sorely miss, but that's an issue more with iOS6 rather than the ouch itself. Hopefully Apple's maps will get better :) It has built-in Siri but I don't use Siri myself so can't comment on that.

    It's hard to compare this with the iPhone because this is not a phone, though you can download Skype or Vonage Mobile and use these apps to turn the Touch into a makeshift phone. I guess it could be compared to other tablets which do pretty much the same thing as the Touch for the most part. A lot of the tablets are cheaper in price, though have less storage capacity and can't be used so efficiently as a camera, or an MP3 player while working out.

    All in all I am very impressed and pleased with the Touch 5 so far. Whether to buy or upgrade to this device is entirely a personal decision depending on what you're looking for.

    I don't know how to rate this item. It does what it's advertised to do, but when I bought it I wasn't sure how useful it would be and Apple only provides a brief return period.

    For me, its usefulness depends mostly on how many places I go and places I eat that have wi-fi. So far it looks like about half, making it less useful than I'd hoped. Also, making the device useful depends on finding applications that will let it do things you need. I'm still working on this and, unless I get rid of it, will probably be searching for months.

    The built-in mail app has several weaknessess. It's a loooog time between mail checks when it's in sleep mode. It imported all the mail from one of my mailboxes (thousands of messages) and they have to be deleted one at a time. There is no way to do a mass delete. There's no convenient way to import contact addresses.

    The browser works fine.

    I haven't figured out how to make my apps that depend on maps (apps with maps, hmmm) to use google maps as the Apple maps leave something to be desired.

    There's more, but hopfully you get the idea.

          Comments about Apple 32GB iPod touch (Black & Slate) (5th Generation):

          I upgraded from the iPod Touch 4th Gen mainly because it had only 8 GB of storage (only about 6 GB is available for apps, music and video). I only needed 16 GB but chose the 32 GB version (only about 28 GB is available for apps, music and video) because of the rear camera. I was able to upgrade to iOS 7.04. The screen is larger, the cameras are sharper and the processor is faster. The Wi-Fi seems to be faster and the Bluetooth more responsive.

          The device, while a bit thicker than the 4G model, is still difficult to hold. A good protective case is highly recommended.

              Comments about Apple 32GB iPod touch (Black & Slate) (5th Generation):

              I mostly use this to listen to audio books. I copied my audio books from my CD's to mp3's. It is not easy to transfer the audio books onto the ipod from a CD. It is a very steep learning curve. All of the CD's get labeled "Unknown Album" in the ipod instead of what I named them such as "Disc 1." It can be very frustrating to create a playlist for the books.

              I have successfully listened to several audio books so far. I did lose my place in the books a couple of times when the ipod did not remember where I stopped. Most of the time it does remember where I stop the books.

              The camere is very nice. I also like the ability to have Internet access.

                        I use my iPod touch combined with a "free" freedompop photon, google voice number, and talkatone app as a phone. It would be completely free but I decided to fork over $3.50/mo for data rollover in case I want to have a video party with my touch down the road hah! I have to be kind of frugal with the data since I only get a gig free per month but that's fine by me if I can have what amounts to an iPhone with no bill... The telecoms can go to hell!

                        Ios7 is awesome, the unit is pretty zippy with it installed... Love the 5mp camera since I will use it with scanner app to get rid of my paper file cabinet and have a tagged, searchable index of everything in Evernote...

                        Used like this, not to mention having an amazing library of rare book PDFs in my pocket, it's a steal, literally!

                        Get one and subvert the system!

                              I bought the iPod 5 just to upgrade thinking its nothing special but this device is so much faster than the 4. Other than the panorama camera option and bigger screen there is nothing crazy different. I do love that they finally put a flash on the back

                                I broke my Itouch 4th generation so I decided to get the 5th generation. The screen is much clearer than the previous itouches, and it's definitely lighter. My itouch is my source of audio and entertainment; I use it every day. I would recommend this itouch out of all the other itouches.

                                  As a previous iPhone user, getting used to the iPod Touch was easy. It's pretty much an iPhone, except the Touch isn't a phone (so you're not charged monthly), is thinner, and comes with a wrist strap. With wifi and the right apps though, mimicking a phone is also easy. I don't know if I trust carrying it on the wrist strap because it seems flimsy, but I'm also one to be extra cautious with expensive things. I bought a screen protector to prevent scratches and a case that has a silicone layer on the inside and a plastic layer on the outside to insulate it in case I drop it.

                                  Everything (the device, packaging, etc.) was exactly as described by B&H and looked like it came straight from Apple. Highly recommend (access to all the apps in the app store is its best perk) and couldn't be happier!

                                    I love this product. I needed a camera that had flash and took decent quality photos so I can get pictures for the school yearbook. This fills the bill because it is light and easy to pack. I love that it has so much space too. I don't have to worry about running out of space on this. It seems to work a lot better than my old 8gb ipod too. It plays video really well. I can take videos with good quality as well. I'm very happy with it.

                                              Having owned many older iPods, it is very impressive how much better the 5th generation is over older models. The screen is amazing and the feel in the hand is very nice,

                                              I am loving my new iPod Touch. I wish I didn't have to recharge it so often. I don't know if I'm really using it that much or if the apps I loaded are resource heavy. I'm having so much fun with it and I haven't even loaded music yet and I've had it almost a month. All I need is a hotspot and I'll never need a data plan for my phone.

                                                I upgraded from the 4th gen and am loving it. The IPS display has much better viewing angles and black levels. The 4 inch screen shows more and watching 16:9 videos takes up the whole screen, but it makes one-handed use more difficult because you have to adjust your grip to reach the corners sometimes. The speed is much faster and I can switch between apps quicker because it has double the ram of last generation. The feeling of it is perfect in the hand and so light. It actually takes good photos now, both the front and back cameras were improved greatly. What I'd like to see in the future is even better camera quality, GPS and a mute switch.

                                                  I like that we can justdrop it in a pocket and have it ready. Takes great photos -even in low light.
