Along with the new iPhone 5, Apple has announced the new iPod Touch 5g and the iPod Nano 7g. The new iPod touch gets bumped up to a larger 4 inch screen form factor like the iPhone 5’s, a new 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, an upgraded A5 chip and newly designed Apple earbuds which are supposed to improve comfort and sound quality. Also, it now comes in 5 colors as shown above. Price is $299 for 32GB and $399 for 64GB and it will be available in October. You can read more here.

Next up is the new iPod Nano. It has grown in size considerably compared to the previous Nano (which I thought was way too small anyway) and boasts a 2.5-inch screen. Apps have not graduated to the Nano yet, it is still limited to music and video mostly, plus whatever apps Apple includes on it. Price is $149 for 16GB and it will be available in October. You can get more info here.

Both the new iPod Touch and iPod Nano use the new Lightning dock connector, making the old Apple dock connector that’s been in use since 2003 obsolete. If you have old devices with docks that you still want to use there will be adapters available.
