5th Gen iPod Touch: Unboxed, in the flesh

Bought the 5th-generation iPod Touch lst Friday night after learning that Beyond the Box was already carrying them. Although it is still in limited stocks, was able to get 32GB black/slate model for around Php16.5k.

I think this is the first time that Apple introduced a lot of colors to the iPod Touch line (used to be just black and white).

One of the first things you will notice when you unbox the iPod Touch 5G is how thin and light it is. At only 6.1mm thin, this is very apparent when you hold the device. So yeah, it’s the sexiest iPod Touch yet.

The display is now bigger at 4.0 inches, just like the iPhone 5. It also features the Retina Display. The back panel is an anodized aluminum where the color is bonded to the metal.

The accessories inside the box includes the new Earpods, the Lightning cable and the hand-strap. There’s a small metal button at the bottom corner in the back that pops out when you press it so you can hook the strap.

Here’s some more sample photos we took while unboxing the iPod Touch.

  1. I wonder if this is a better choice than iPad Mini. Seems like there are not that many aftersales products yet (cases, protectors, etc) for iPod Touch…

  2. where did you bought that?

    • bought--->BUY

      He bought it at Beyond the Box store as stated in the first paragraph.

      “Bought the 5th-generation iPod Touch lst Friday night after learning that Beyond the Box was already carrying them.”

    • BOBO!

      Where did you BUY that dapat

      Pa-english english ka pa, bobo ka naman sa grammar

    • nabili na nya yung item so “bought” yung gamit sa sentence.

    • Reese, mali po yan. Bwal ang double negative sa English grammar. Pg gumamit ka na ng DID sa sentence dapt ung kasunod mo na verb ay hindi na past tense. So tama ung Where did u buy that?

  3. OT: bakit laging nag refresh ang webpage ng yugatech everytime na view ko, wala naman ako ginagawa, tumitigil lang pag click ko ng stop refresh, ako lang ba? napansin ko ito mga one week na, dati naman hindi

  4. Also got mine from Beyond The Box in Robinsons Galleria. 64GB in blue costing P21,999 and had the screen protector applied in Greenhills for 150.

    • May case ka na nabili? May available na ba sa greenhills? Btw, great na meron silang screen protector for 4in screen.

    • sylv3rblade

      Time to the mall! XD

    • they offered a case i said no. it’s so beautiful to cover up.

  5. ganda ng mga pics, daming alikabok, nice for a blog like this.

  6. Can’t wait for the review!

    P.S. Sir Yuga, is it just me or your favicon’s gone?


      Nawala rin po sa’kin nung nag update po sila,

      pero ngayon po OK na.

      Nag clear lang po ako ng cache

  7. Can’t wait for the review!

    P.S. Sir Yuga, is it just me or your favicon’s really gone?

    • You’re not alone. Favicon isn’t visible on my as well.

  8. meron bang 3g version nito at pwede kaya iconvert sya para makapag call and txt? May narinig kasi ako dati na nagawa yun sa previous generations, di lng ako sure totoo nga yun XD

    • GMate yung tawag sa device na yun. Malamang magkaroon din ng compatible sa bagong Touch.

    • GMate? Separate device sya di ba? Parang kasi di sya convenient, nagugustuhan kasi ng kapatid ko yung design ng ipod touch 5g, malamang di nya magugustuhan kung may ikakabit pa hahaha

      Anyway, thanks sa info :D

    • Separate siya but not like the Apple Peel that you should attach to the device. It’s just like a Pocket wifi, it connects via blue tooth

  9. Magkaka ganito rin ako :) tiwala lang.
    Ganda nito pang xmas.

  10. I want this, mahal nga lang. Beyond the box 16,490 bakit kay cmk 13,000 lang

  11. Match-up naman sir abe!
    5th gen vs. 4th gen ipod touch

  12. nagaaccept ba sila ng cash :)

  13. When will this be available sa mga malls and me 8gb pa ba? If so, how much kaya? Was thinking of buying 4th gen sa Dec. pro kung mura na din ung 8gb nito, eto nalang. :)

    • Hi, walang 8gb ang iPod 5th gen. 16gb lang

    • Wala din pong 16gb. 32gb and 64gb na lang po yung available for the 5th gen.

    • Ouch… sayang naman… msyado nang malaki ung 32gb para sa kin, not to mention hndi ko na afford… okay na sana ung 16gb eh. :-(

  14. Hello everyone, Yugatech readers. Except Beyond The Box may alam pa po kayong stores na nagooffer na ng 5th generation iPod Touch? Silver 32GB po. Thanks, Since the 1st week of October, i’ve been following stores like Digital Hub, Electroworld etc. etc. and sinasabi nila na stocks will come out next week and I totally can’t wait much longer, I want it tomorrow :( please Help me find one. Thanks

    • i have 32G, color red and color blue for sale…0922-4632844

    • PowerMac, try it. Got mine (black/slate) in first release nung Oct. 20th. Limited stocks of course. This iPod is the best! So sleek and doesn’t feel cheap. Good buy for a price.

    • Power Mac :( Lagi po nila sinasabi sakin wala pa silang stocks :( Lahat nalang ng Power Mac na napuntahan ko ganun yung sinasabi, just because na siguro 15years old lang ako kala siguro nila I’m just a waste of their times :((( nakakainis na po, sobrang limited ng stocks, Gusto ko po kasi e yung Silver, e lagi namang walang Silver :((

    • No, don’t say that… just leave your number to them like we did with my friend. Of course, no reservation. Itetext ka naman nila bout sa availability, then xmpre you should come early sa store. With my friend, we got the last two ipod black/slate at 5pm na… very limited kasi ang stocks. If you want sa gray market magpurchase, try Widget City or CMK. I hope that helps. You’re going to love the new iPod Touch for sure. :)

    Sir, bale plano ko po bumili ng iTouch. Anu-ano po ba yung difference between 4th gen. and 5th gen. itouch?
    Pero 4th gen(16gb) po talaga yung nasa plano ko, kasi yun yung pinaka-pasok sa budget ko. Pero kung sakali, gusto ko lang po malaman kung ano yung mga pagkakaiba. Salamat :D
