Play that iPod music

With its taller, thinner shape and longer display, the new iPod Touch resembles the iPhone 5. Yet, it shows some unique elements when you take a closer look.

Here you can see the iPod Touch (right) next to the iPhone 5. You won't find a phone dialer, of course, but most of the icons from the iPhone 5 remain.

The iPod Touch comes with a set of Apple's new EarPods in the box. They lack a remote control, though, and the iPod Touch's headset jack is now on the bottom.

The iPod Touch uses Apple's new smaller Lightning connector. On the left is the headset jack and on the right is a speaker. Without phone capabilities, there's no need for the microphone you'd find on the iPhone.

The Touch (top) measures just just 0.24 inch, which is thinner than the iPhone 5's 0.3-inch profile. At 3.1 ounces, it's also marginally lighter than the iPhone 5, which is 3.95 ounces.

On its rear side, the iPod Touch shows other differences from the iPhone 5. At the top left corner are the camera lens and flash and directly below is the point for attaching the wrist strap. The new model replaces the steel backing of the previous iPod Touch with a matte anodized aluminum finish.

The difference between the two versions is even more apparent when you turn them around.

The Touch's Web browser will be familiar to iPhone users.

The iPod Touch also supports the new Apple Maps app. That is, if you want to use it.
