One More Thing: Two New Ipods

While the iphone 5 was the star turn, Apple also announced significant upgrades to the iPod touch and nano at its 12 September event. For the second year running, there are no changes to the screen less iPod shuffle or hard disk-based iPod classic remain, although a reference to the shuffle in the iTunes 10.7 update suggests it may have been tweaked.

The seventh-generation nano has reverted to its former tall, thin shape, a disappointment to those who were hoping Apple would join third parties in exploiting the square 2010 model’s potential as a smart watch. This allows it to regain support for video on its 16:9 2.5in 240 x 432-pixel touch screen. As before, an FM radio receiver is built in.

With a Nike+ app on the home screen, and an integral pedometer, Apple has evidently decided the nano’s niche is in the gym or on the road. To that end it’s added Bluetooth 4 to connect wirelessly to heart rate monitors and other accessories. The same power-efficient technology can also be used for wireless headphones and for in-car audio. However, the $195.8 device, which has 16GB of storage, still lacks wifi, so content must be synced from a Mac or PC using a Dock cable.

If the nano is all about fitness, entertainment is the name of the game for the iPod touch. Often described as an iPhone without the phone, it now has a 4in Retina display and Lightning connector like the iPhone 5, a 5 megapixel camera improving on that in the iPhone 4, and the A5 processor from the iPhone 4S. This puts it two generations behind the iPhone 5’s A6, with the third-generation iPad using the A5X. But with seven times the graphics processing power of the previous iPod touch, the fifth-generation model is more than ready to build on its status as the world’s most popular gaming device.

The back panel comes in five of the seven iPod nano colours, all with a white front, and a colour-matched wrist strap is supplied, attaching to a pop-out button.

However, the 4th generation model has been reduced to $256.5 with 16GB of RAM, undercutting its earlier price with 8GB and providing an obvious addition to Christmas lists.

Both the nano and the touch come with EarPods, the result, says Apple, of three years redesigning its earphones. Rather than creating a seal inside the ear canal, these rest on the outer ear and direct sound into it. EarPods are also supplied with the iPhone 5 and can be bought separately for $38.
