As I mentioned above, Apple announced all new iPods on Tuesday, and that included changes to the iPod classics, touches and shuffles as well. Some details:
The new iPod touch boasts better specs, but keeps the same capacity sizes of 8GB, 16GB and 32GB. New features below:
- Slimmer design, with curved back
- 2.1 Firmware
- Genius playlist (Apple says: “With just a few taps, the new Genius feature creates a playlist of tracks in your library that go great together.” Not sure how that works, but cool!)
- Nike+iPod support (built-in Nike+ interface; all you need is the sensor for your shoe)
- Built-in speaker, with volume controls
- 36-hour music, 6-hour video battery life
- $229 for 8GB, $299 for 16GB, $399 for 32GB
The iPod classic now comes in only one size: 120GB for $249.99. They still come in both Silver and Black.
The shuffles have stayed the same as well, except for a new color scheme. They now include:
- A brighter color scheme of Blue, Green, Pink and Silver, reminiscent of past versions!
- 1GB for $49.99
- 2GB for $69.99
More to come on the new iPods… all new iPods are listed, and most are ready to ship!
