The fifth generation iPod Touch features a high-resolution, 4-inch Retina display, a 5-pixel camera with an LED flash, Apple's Siri feature, and support for recording 1080-pixel video and panoramic still photos. It is the first iPod Touch available in a variety of colors, including red, pink, blue and yellow.
The fifth generation iPod Touch is slimmer and lighter than previous Touch models. It is a quarter-inch thick and weighs 3.1 ounces. The 4-inch screen uses a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. Like the iPad Mini, iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, the fifth generation Touch is powered by Apple's dual-core A5 processor.
The iPod Touch is an Apple pocket computer with a touchscreen-based user interface. Apple released the fifth generation iPod Touch in October 2012 and officially discontinued the product in July 2015 when it introduced the sixth generation iPod Touch.
When Apple first released the fifth generation Touch in 2012, they only sold it in 32 GB and 64 GB models. In May 2013, Apple introduced a 16 GB model with no rear iSight camera or iPod Touch Loop. The original 16 GB model was only available in one color. In June 2014, Apple introduced a new 16 GB model available in the full range of color options which included all features of the higher-storage models.
