What's new

More ways to play

iPod touch games and applications are nothing short of amazing. And the App Store is where you’ll find them all.

The world’s best developers are taking advantage of groundbreaking technology, including Multi-Touch, the accelerometer, real-time 3D graphics and 3D positional sound, to create games and applications made especially for iPod touch. So whether you’re a gamer or into something else — chatting, social networking, news, sports, finance — there’s bound to be something just for you.

Sleek new design

iPod touch feels even better in your hand thanks to the stunningly thin, contoured enclosure made of polished stainless steel.

Built in speaker

A built-in speaker lets you hear the music, dialogue and action without headphones, perfect for casual listening.

Rock 'n' run with Nike+

iPod touch offers built-in wireless support for Nike + iPod. All you need to do is insert a Nike + iPod sensor into your shoe and start running.
