A5 processor

With the same CPU/GPU chip as the iPhone 4S and iPad 2, the new iPod touch 5th generation is ready for demanding games

5-megapixel camera

The new camera has the same resolution as the much-praised iPhone 4 but with some benefits added from the 4S and iPhone 5.

iPod touch

With the same screen as the iPhone 5, the touch is a multi-purpose computer and game console that’s also excellent for music and movies.

Because they’re all based on the same Apple operating system, iOS, the iPod touch, iPhone and iPad can all run the same apps. Hundreds of thousands are available, covering a vast range of purposes, and because they only come from the App Store, which is managed by Apple, you never have to worry about getting a virus or running a dodgy program that messes up your system.

With the same screen as the iPhone 5, the touch is a multi-purpose computer and game console that’s also excellent for music and movies.

The iPhone 4 and 4S and the iPod touch 4th generation have a 3.5in Retina Display with four times as many pixels as their predecessors, though the iPod’s screen isn’t of quite such a high quality. The iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5th generation share exactly the same larger Retina Display. The iPad 3rd generation similarly doubles the iPad 2’s resolution.

Old apps that haven’t been updated for Retina run ‘pixel doubled’ on newer devices, while iPhone apps without an iPad (or ‘H D’) version run either at their intended pixel size, in the middle of the screen, or doubled in size. Apps that haven’t been redesigned for the iPhone 5 Display run at their original size, leaving black bars above and below.

Retina iPhone apps won’t run on the iPad or iPad 2 at full resolution, even though the iPad has more pixels, but will on the iPad 3rd generation. Apps made just for iPad won’t run on other iOS devices.

The 4th gen touch, with 3.5in Retina Display, is good value, though its slower processor may limit a few new games

Configurations

·         iPod touch 5th generation 32GB, $373.5

·         iPod touch 5th generation 64GB, $493.5

·         iPod touch 4th generation 16GB, $253.5

iPod Classic

It doesn’t run iOS but the old-school Hard disk iPod gives you an enormous amount of room for music and video

Click Wheel

No touchscreen here; slide your finger around the dial to pick options

Storage

Like the original iPod (though it’s been updated several times), the classic uses a Hard disk to provide much greater capacity than the flash memory in every other iOS device. That makes it practical to carry plenty of movies and TV shows as well as music – it’ll take up to 200 hours of video, or 40,000 songs

Configurations

iPod classic 160GB

Price:  $298.5

Apple TV

Rent or buy movies from iTunes on your HDTV or wirelessly stream apps, games, videos and photos from iOS or Mac to the big screen via AirPlay, $148.5

iPhone 5

With its stretched Retina Display and metal back, the iPhone 5 has a new feel as well as an enhanced 8-megapixel camera and a faster processor chip

iPhone 5

The resolution stays the same from the 4S, but this is a new camera with better low-light shooting and a scratch proof sapphire crystal lens cover. The FaceTime camera on the front has been upgraded to 720p HD

Siri

Description: Siri on iPhone 5

Siri on iPhone 5

Only the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S and iPad 3rd generation support Siri, Apple’s built-in voice recognition system

iPhone 4S

There’s little the 4S can’t do compared to the 5, so you could pay less by sacrificing the big screen. You still get a Retina Display, an 8-megapixel camera and Siri.

iPhone 4

With a fine but less impressive 5-megapixel camera and no Siri, the iPhone 4 is a cheaper option.

Configurations

·         iPhone 5 16GB, $793.5

·         iPhone 5 32GB, $898.5

·         iPhone 5 64GB, $1048.5

·         iPhone 4S 16GB, $748.5

·         iPhone 4 8GB, $478.5

All iPhones Black White

The prices shown here are to buy an iPhone direct from Apple which is not locked to any network. You can then shop around for pay as you go or pay monthly tariffs. Buying an iPhone on contract will cost less initially, but you must keep the contract for 18 months or two years. An iPhone 4 or 4S or a non-CDMA iPhone 5 sold in the US will work in the UK, but check it has been or can be unlocked from its original network. The iPhone 4 and 4S require a micro-SIM, the iPhone 5 a Nano- SIM.

iPod Nano

Tiniest touchscreen handles music, video, photos and fitness

Description: iPod nano
