It’s the 4th Generation Touch But all Grown Up

Now that the 4th generation iPod touch has been quietly discontinued (sneaky!) every kid wants to get their hands on the new upgrade – the Apple iPod Touch 5th Generation. This however, is not the iPod that those kids want – no this is the iPod that YOU want. This is the newer, lighter and slimmer 16GB model that Apple brought out in May 2013 and have since upgraded to mirror the 32 and 64GB but with a much more reasonable price tag.

A Change of Heart from Apple

When Apple first brought out the iPod Touch 16GB they did away with the pastel colours and the rear camera but thanks to a few uncomplimentary reviews, they had a change of heart (not that they wanted to advertise this). So you can now get the iPod Touch in a range of bright colours to match your seemingly bright personalities. You can also take full advantage of both the rear and front camera (using a 5 megapixel iSight camera) for all those selfies of you showing off that bright personality – in fact the 16GB iPod Touch has all the features of the more expensive 5th generation iPods so there really is no compromise.

“Refreshed” mid 2014, the latest 5th Generation Apple iPod Touch 16GB now comes with a 5MP iSight Camera.

However there is a good reason why the iPod Touch 16GB will still appeal more to the older generation and that is the budget price and the manageable memory. Who wants to store thousands of photos and play on countless apps? It has double the memory of the 4th generation which is plenty for those of us who use it mainly for music, a few select apps and the odd photo.

Regardless of the two cameras, the 5th generation iPod is still a darn sight slimmer than the 4th generation but with a wider screen which makes navigation easier. And it also comes with iOS 8 which gives you more power, easier navigation and you can take advantage of regular updates.

 

Why Not Just Splash Out on the 32GB iPod?

Why not indeed? But then if you were perfectly happy with your 4th Generation Touch and merely want an upgrade then this really does look and feel like a smarter, better model.

The screen is noticeably larger (with a 4 inch Retina display) and the iPod has some great features that were previously reserved only for 32GB models, such as the dual-core A5 processor and Apple’s Lightning Connector – which does mean that you’ll need an adaptor if you were previously using the 30-pin port. It’s also compatible with that rather annoying disembodied voice named Siri – but this is optional.

The higher resolution works wonders on those games and apps, making a noticeable difference and the battery does last considerably longer. If you are upgrading from the 4th Generation then you won’t be left disappointed.

Both the 32GB and 64GB come with a colour matched ‘iPod Touch Loop’ which wraps around your wrist to keep your iPod safe & in place on the go.

Great for the Budget Conscious

Of course the main reason most buyers opt for the 16GB iPod Touch is that it is much cheaper than the 32GB iPod but is the memory compromise just too much to handle? That all depends on what you intend using it for. If you want to shoot lots of videos to upload to your simpering friends on YouTube and you spend most of the day exercising only your fingers to play countless storage and intelligence sucking apps then you don’t want to even look at the 16GB model – so go away.

If however, you want a slim, fully portable iPod which looks the business, plays all your favourite songs, has a reasonable memory for those ‘can’t-live-without-them’ apps and decent battery life then you’ll be more than happy with the cheap and cheerful 16GB iPod Touch.

Get Off Kids – This One’s Mine!

The bottom line is – don’t get this for an ungrateful teen who will be a social leper at school with their lowly 16GB iPod. Get this more grown-up version for you or your parents, or grandparents. It does the job well, it looks good, it’s cheaper and it’s a definite improvement on the 4th Generation model. What more do you want?

  • At 12.3cm x 5.9cm x 0.6cm and just 88 grams, this media player is super portable.
  • Slim, light and compact, the iPod Touch packs a mighty punch with its Dual-Core A5 chip – double the processor speed of previous generations.
    Available in five different colours online (grey, silver, blue, yellow and pink) you can pick a style to suit your personality. Red is also available if you buy at an Apple Store.
  • Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi‑Fi (802.11n 2.4GHz and 5GHz) and the built-in Nike+ app combine to make your iPod the ultimate workout tool.
  • While its 4 inch widescreen retina display (1136×640-pixel resolution at 326 pixels per inch) with Multi‑Touch IPS technology make it the must have handheld entertainment system for watching films on the go…
  • The colours really pop too, with 44 per cent greater saturation compared to previous iPod Touch models.
  • Selfie junkies fear not, the 16GB iPod Touch now has a 5MP iSight camera on the back and 1.2MP FaceTime camera on the front. While Instagram addicts can make use of the Five-element lens, LED flash, panorama mode and face detection to create some instamagic.
  • Oh and Viners don’t fret, there’s also HD video recording (1080p) up to 30 frames per second with audio using the rear camera and HD video (720p) up to 30 frames per second with the front camera complete with video stabilisation and tap to control exposure – fo’ reals.
  • And with iOS 8 taking photos and editing video is a breeze with iMovie (available free on the iPod Touch) and the new and improved Photo app (now organises every picture you take into smart albums).
  • Not forgetting Siri, your digital virtual assistant.
  • And Airplay – stream your iPod Touch content (games, movies, photos) onto HDTV via Apple TV (2nd and 3rd Gen); share exactly what’s on your iPod Touch 5’s screen with mirroring mode; turn your iPod Touch (5th Gen) into a controller for an exhilarating gaming experience like no other.
  • AirDrop, CarPlay, Control Centre, Family Sharing, iCloud Drive, Multitasking, Notification Centre, QuickType keyboard and Spotlight Search are also available on iOS 8.
  • Of course none of this would be possible without the Built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which boasts Up to 40 hours music and 8 hours video playback (when fully charged).
  • The iPod Touch (5th Gen) charges quick too – just 2 hours for 80%, 4 hours for a full charge – boom.

What’s in the Box…

  • iPod Touch
  • Apple EarPods
  • Lightning to USB Cable

(the iPod loop is sold separately for the 16GB model)
