iPod touch review (2010)


At Apple's last event, Steve Jobs called the iPod touch the company's "most popular iPod," and it's easy to understand why. In just a few short years,

Retina Display ; Front- and back-facing cameras ; New A4 CPU

Back camera quality is low ; Needs a GPS chip ; Screen is lacking IPS technology

Apple iPod Touch third generation review


Now in its third year, Apple's iPod Touch has evolved so many features and uses beyond media playback that we're not really sure what to call it anymore. Some flock to the Touch for its first-class mobile Web browser and e-mail support, while others...

The third generation of Apple's iPod Touch is still the king of the hill when it comes to portable, Wi-Fi-wielding media players. New additions such as Voice Control, graphics enhancements, improved accessibility, higher capacity, and a faster...

The video cameras found on the iPhone 3GS and iPod Nano remain conspicuously absent. The lack of refinements to its audio quality, hardware design, and video playback leave us feeling just a little uninspired.

Though the updates are subtle, the third-generation iPod Touch leaves its competitors in the dust.

Apple iPod touch (2010)


Now that the iPod touch is in its fourth generation, Apple finds itself at interesting crossroads. The company simply doesn't have any competition right now in the high-end portable media player market. iTunes remains as popular as ever, and there is...

Apple iPod Touch 32 GB


The year 2007 came, I remember it was in January and Steve Jobs had one last thing to present at the annual MacWorld Expo. I can't remember exactly, but I think I saw the 4 main icons that are always in the iPhone Dock individually displayed and...

Simple interface, easy to navigate and customize (to a certain degree) ; Tight integration with iTunes for syncing and management of music and applications ; Ability to browse the Internet seamlessly and check email using Wi-Fi ; Search capabilities...

No built in camera ; Error messages and diagnosing issues with the device can leave you clueless ; Syncing photos through Adobe Photoshop Album stinks; Apple needs to provide support for Windows Live Photo Gallery ; Too much dig down menus ; Ear buds...

The iPod Touch regardless of its minor flaws is a lovely device to use; the only major drawback for me though, there is no built in camera. A device like this is begging for one, but then again, I can understand Apple not wanting to cannibalize their...

Apple iPod Touch - £249


The new Apple iPod Touch is incredibly slick and capable of doing some remarkable things, but is it really hi-fi? asks Ed Selley

Incredibly flexible, improved sound quality via headphone socket

Bottom mounted headphone socket annoying

An excellent sonic performer with huge flexibility and superb ergonomics

Apple iPod touch review (5th gen, late-2012)


It seems like a long time since demand for the iPod wasovertaken by the iPhone, but there's still a place forwhat is largely the same device, sans phone and highprice.

Lightest, slimmest iPod Touch yet, excellent screen, improvedcamera, great range of apps

Less affordable entry point than previous iPod touch

It's a shame the cheaper versions have gone, but despite itsconsiderable price tag, the latest iPod touch still offersgood value for money, with a terrific screen, excellentsyncing possibilities through iTunes and an unsurpassed rangeof available apps.

Very easy to use for oldies


I bought this for downloading my music for car hotel rooms etc,although not being of the tech age was concerned wether it would defeat me.However I found it remarkably easy to navigate and use.A first rate piece of equipment.
