Apple iPod Touch A1574 Details
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 M8 motion-sensing coprocessor makes for an improved 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.
The Apple-designed A8 processor is built on 64-bit architecture and features GPU performance up to 10 times faster than the previous generation. The CPU performs up to six times faster than the previous-generation iPod touch.
M8 Motion Coprocessor
The M8 motion coprocessor continually measures physical motion from advanced sensors, including a gyroscope and accelerometer. This frees up valuable processing resources for the A8 chip. The M8 also provides accurate fitness tracking information, such as steps and distance, directly to the Health app.
The Metal API allows developers to design highly immersive console-style games. Metal is optimised to let the CPU and GPU work together to deliver detailed graphics and complex visual effects.
This iPod Touch features an anodised aluminum unibody design, similar to Apple's MacBook line. It's only 6.1mm thick and weighs just 88 grams. Aside from the ultraportable design, the anodised aluminum unibody features a supersmooth finish highlighted by its polished beveled edges.
4" Retina Display
The 4" multi-touch 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.
The iPod touch is made from recyclable materials, such as aluminum. Also, every iPod touch is free of toxic materials, such as brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
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.
iTunes and iCloud
Buy and download new music on your iPod touch over 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac 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 Windows computer.
Bluetooth and Airplay
Bluetooth 4.1 lets you pair your iPod touch to Bluetooth-enabled devices like headphones and speakers. 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 to any speaker connected to an AirPort Express.
