A powerful A8 chip. A stunning Retina display. An incredibly portable design. Whether you like fast-paced action, amazingly detailed strategy games, or beautifully intricate puzzles, iPod touch offers the ultimate mobile gaming experience.
iPod touch features an Apple-designed A8 chip built on 64-bit architecture. This desktop-class chip features GPU performance up to 10 times faster than the previous-generation iPod touch — so the graphics in your favorite games are more responsive and look more vivid than ever before — and CPU performance is up to six times faster. And you get the same great battery life, with up to 40 hours of music and 8 hours of video playback.1
To get the greatest graphics performance out of the A8 chip, we created Metal — a new technology that allows developers to design highly immersive console-style games. Metal is optimized to let the CPU and GPU work together to deliver detailed graphics and complex visual effects. So every imaginary world feels more realistic.
M8 Motion Coprocessor
The M8 motion coprocessor continually measures physical motion from advanced sensors, including a gyroscope and accelerometer. Offloading this work from the A8 chip to the M8 improves power efficiency. The M8 also provides accurate fitness tracking information, such as steps and distance, right to the Health app.
4-inch Retina display. Big fun.
iPod touch has a 4-inch Retina display, so all your fun has a beautiful canvas. Your hairpin car-racing turns, your dance party playlist, your friends’ photos — everything is sharp, vivid, and lifelike. And the display is a perfect widescreen fit for your HD movies and TV shows.
You’ve got a great eye.
See what you can do with even better cameras.
iPod touch features a new 8-megapixel iSight camera and an improved FaceTime HD camera, so you can take some of the most stunning photos and videos you’ve ever captured. These new cameras come with features like slo-mo and burst mode, as well as better noise reduction and improved face detection. And with iCloud Photo Library, you can easily access, edit, and share your photos on all your devices.
Slow down life’s fastest moments. The slo-mo feature lets you shoot HD video at 120 fps in 720p. You can even record and then select the portion you want to slow down.
Burst mode captures 10 photos per second and can be triggered simply by holding down the camera button. As you shoot, your iPod touch analyzes every shot in real time. Then it suggests the photos you might like best.
Now you can create remarkable time‑lapse videos and iOS does all the work. Just set up your iPod touch, select Time‑lapse mode, and tap Record. You’ll have an amazing movie, whether you record for 30 minutes or 30 hours.
Pano mode now lets you take higher‑resolution panoramic photos at up to 43MP. And dynamic auto exposure adjusts as you shoot to capture your most epic shots with incredible clarity.
