iPod Touch Review
The latest iteration of Apple's iPod Touch features a super low-profile aluminum body, making it not only durable but thin and sleek. In that regard, it embraces Apple's design aesthetic that emphasizes both form and function. It's also available in five colors, which adds a personal touch to a device that used to come in exactly one color.
When it comes to audio quality, the iPod Touch excels. Included in the box are Apple's all-new, redesigned EarPod headphones, which improves greatly on the fit and performance of Apple's ubiquitous earbuds of old.
Of course, there's more to the iPod touch than what you hear; it's also about what you see. The new iPod Touch features a bright and bold 4-inch retina display. The cover art of your favorite albums will never look better than it does on the iPod Touch, and the text will remain crisp and highly readable while you browse the web.
Music is only the beginning. The iPod Touch shares a great deal of its functionality with Apple's flagship product, the iPhone. Many apps these days are designed to be compatible with both devices, meaning the iPod Touch is also a highly capable gaming device and productivity tool. Users can keep track of their calendars and shopping list, or kill some time with the latest games.
In addition, the iPod Touch has a 5-megapixel iSight Camera, making it capable of taking beautiful photographs or shooting high-definition video. Focusing on the subject is as easy as tapping the screen, while the built-in LED flash provides excellent performance in darker surroundings.
The iPod Touch also ships with Apple's latest mobile operating system: iOS 7. As users have come to expect, it's a great fusion of hardware and software. iOS 7 makes using the iPod Touch a great deal easier than it's been in the past, with easy access to frequently used features made accessible via Control Center. As always, iCloud functionality is built in from the ground up, meaning that all of your personal data is kept in sync across all of your Apple devices, all for free.
