In Case You Missed It: Apple Launches New iPods & Redesigns iTunes [Updates]

ipod 300   In Case You Missed It: Apple Launches New iPods & Redesigns iTunes [Updates]The star of the recent Apple event was undoubtedly the new iPhone 5, with its bigger screen and skinny frame. So just in case you missed it in all the excitement, there are new members joining the iPod family as well, and even old iTunes gets a complete redesign, which will be available in October. So if you’re more into music and less into phone calls, here’s what you can expect from the new additions to the iPod family.

Remember when the iPod Nano was bigger? Well, it’s back: the new iPod Nano has a 2.5-inch screen, as opposed to the 1.5-inch screen on the older model, which is very similar to the screen the Nano used to have back in 2008. This is where the similarities end, though. The new Nano comes with 16GB of storage, and while its screen is larger, it’s actually much thinner and lighter than its older brothers. It includes physical playback buttons as well as a touchscreen and features the new Lightning connector, built-in FM and Bluetooth, and even some fitness features. It comes in 7 different colors, and can be yours for $149.

Looking for something bigger? A new iPod Touch is also available, and it’s almost as exciting as the iPhone 5. The new iPod Touch features the same 4-inch Retina display as the new iPhone, and is much lighter and thinner than previous models. For those who were bored with just black or white, the new iPod Touch will be available in five different colors. It will also ship with iOS 6, including Siri, and will be available in either a 32GB or a 64GB model. The new iPod Touch will be available in October.

Last but not least: iTunes. If good old iTunes feels a bit outdated, you’d be happy to hear that a new and improved version is heading your way. October will see the release of iTunes 11 for Mac and Windows, which will feature a completely new interface, resembling the one we’re used to seeing on mobile devices. In the meantime, you can download iTunes 10.7 which was just released, and adds support for iOS 6 and the new iPod models.

I would also recommend to visit http://www.ieflame.com . Maybe it’s not as big as the ones mentioned in this

post, but it’s updated constantly and has some vector graphics that you will not find anywhere else

It’s funny how Apple fanboys say that Nokia came up with a phone that didn’t copy the iPhone aesthetic like Samsung did, then Apple pulls this crap. I really hope Nokia sues their elitist attitude right out of them for this.
