The iPod touch finally gets the big update it deserves as 2015 iPod line launches

iPods might not be as exciting as they used to be, especially following the iPhone revolution that changed the mobile landscape, turning every smartphone into a music player. But Apple isn’t quite done selling them, especially now that it launched its own music streaming service.

In fact, starting today, there are new iPods available to buyers, as Apple just announced its 2015 iPod refresh. More →

How To Rob An ATM iPod Nano

How to steal cash from an ATM using just an iPod nano and a piece of plastic

How to steal cash from an ATM using just an iPod nano and a piece of plastic

There’s a new and depressingly simple way to steal cash from ATMs and rob other people’s bank accounts, Business Insider informs us. Apparently, thieves have started rigging ATMs to grab people’s ATM cards while at the same time hooking up a concealed fifth-generation iPod nano near the machine to record a video of the users entering in their PINs. Once the users walk away because they figure the machines have simply eaten their cards, the thieves walk in, dislodge their card from the machine and then use their PIN to rob them blind. More →

Apple’s new iPod nano looks ‘uncomfortably familiar’

Apple Nokia Design Stolen

There has been plenty of talk recently about various companies — namely Samsung (005930) — copying Apple’s (AAPL) designs, but as BGR has pointed out in the past, some of Apple’s designs are borrowed as well. Revisiting the topic once again, Reddit user future_proof on Wednesday drew attention to the fact that the new iPod nano unveiled during Apple’s press conference looks “uncomfortably familiar.” More →

Apple unveils new iPod nano with home button

Apple New iPod Nano 2012

The torrent of Apple (AAPL) news just won’t stop. As expected, the Cupertino-based company just unveiled a redesigned iPod nano. The iPod nano has ditched its clip-on design for an razor thin 5.4 millimeter elongated design with a 2.5 inch multitouch display and home button. It’s 38% thinner than the previous iPod nano and will come in seven colors. Even with its thin design, Apple still managed to squeeze in an FM radio, new Lightning connector, Bluetooth, pedometer and 30 hours of battery life for music playback — the longest battery life Apple’s ever had in a nano. Video also makes a return on the iPod nano now that it has regained its widescreen. The new iPod nano will be available in October in only one capacity: 16GB for $149.

Pictures of iPod nano with camera re-emerge

Pictures of iPod nano with camera re-emerge

Last year a number of leaks and photos suggested that Apple had a redesigned iPod nano with an integrated camera in the works. The new device wasn’t released last time Apple refreshed its iPod family, but now another round of pictures has surfaced that lends credence to the possibility that such a device may launch in the near future. The images show a camera-equipped iPod nano complete with its signature clip design, and the device appears to be the same size as the current-generation iPod nano. It remains unclear if Apple will ever release an iPod nano with a camera but the source, Apple.pro, has published early details surrounding Apple hardware in the past that ended up panning out. Another report published Wednesday by MIC Gadget suggests that the device pictured is actually a prototype from several months ago that did not pass Apple’s tests. The site says some problems have been ironed out however, and that the new nano could become available in the coming months. Several additional pictures follow after the break. More →

Apple updates iPod nano with multitouch display, starts at $129

During the “Let’s Talk iPhone” keynote on Apple’s campus in Cupertino, California today, Apple updated the iPod nano with a new multitouch display. Building on a number of watchband accessories that were made available for the last-generation nano, Apple has also created 16 different clock faces on the media player. Users also do not need to purchase additional accessories to take advantage of the nano during workouts; it will automatically begin tracking your walk or run. The new nano is available now and Apple is stocking seven different colors. The 16GB model is priced at $129 and the 16GB mode is priced at $149.

Apple’s new iPod nano may feature 1.3-megapixel camera, clipless body

Apple’s new iPod nano may feature 1.3-megapixel camera, clipless body

Apple’s next-generation iPod nano may ditch the clip design and instead feature a 1.3-megapixel camera, according to leaked images posted by Taiwanese blog Apple.pro. The overall design of the unit looks similar to the current iPod nano, although there’s a chrome border around the new camera and the metal exterior has a noticeably deeper green hue, which suggests new colors are on the way. We’re a bit surprised at the lack of a clip on the nano, though, as most people we’ve seen with the music player use it — so perhaps it’s possible the clip can be removed to expose the camera lens. Either way, the form factor definitely matches earlier leaks of the next-generation iPod nano. More →

New Apple iPod nano to contain a camera, keep form factor?

New Apple iPod nano to contain a camera, keep form factor?

That’s what it’s looking like according to a leaked image from Apple.pro, a site that has in the past leaked details and images on Apple products before their announcement and release. From what we can see, the seventh generation iPod nano would keep the same form factor as the existing model, though would add a relatively large camera sensor to the back of the small multi-touch music player. We’re betting that we’ll see the new iPod nano with camera appear at one of Apple’s traditional fall music events later this year. More →

ZShock diamond Lunatik iPod nano watch wrists-on!

We’re big fans of ZShock and its work, so when the company decided it was going to do what it does best on a Lunatik iPod nano watch case, we had to get our hands — and wrists — on one. It takes ZShock around 3-4 weeks to create and carefully hand-set the diamonds into pave settings on the white gold watch case. The craftsmanship on here is amazing, and just what you’d expect from one of the most innovative jewelers around. The all-diamond ZShock Lunatik iPod nano watch retails for around $18,000, though custom orders with different metals and even different diamonds and stones are possible from www.zshock.com. Make sure to check out some photos of the diamond Lunatik iPod nano watch in our hands on gallery!

NPD Group: Apple to sell over 4 million Macs in fourth quarter

NPD Group: Apple to sell over 4 million Macs in fourth quarter

According to new projections issued by market research firm NPD Group, Apple is poised to break its previous quarterly sales record. For the first time, Apple’s Mac unit sales are set to surpass the 4 million mark, with fourth quarter totals expected to fall in the range of 4.1 to 4.3 million. Apple’s new MacBook Air will apparently play a big role in Apple’s record-breaking quarter, and early demand for the sleek laptop makes solid sales a foregone conclusion. NPD’s numbers, if met, will represent remarkable year-over-year growth of approximately 22% to 28%. Apple is also expected to sell between 18.5 million and 19.5 million iPods during the December quarter. More →

Apple amends internal iPod water damage policy

Apple amends internal iPod water damage policy

Apple has made changes to its internal screening process pertaining to iPod liquid damage, a source told BGR. Apple builds a series of Liquid Contact Indicators (LCI) into its iPod line of devices. When these LCIs come in contact with moisture, they become activated. In the event of a warranty claim or other repair, the LCIs indicate to Apple that the device in question may have been affected by a liquid. Employees of Apple Stores and AppleCare Repair Centers then have specific guidelines used in the event liquid damage is suspected. Previously, the presence of an activated LCI within the headphone jack was cause enough for employees to state that an iPod may have been damaged by water or another liquid. Now, employees must first inspect the iPod for other signs of liquid damage before reaching that conclusion. It is currently not known if the new policy applies to iPhone models as well.

Whether or not Apple has concerns internally regarding the reliability of its LCI devices is unclear at this time. Apple may have also discovered LCIs located within the headphone jack are overly sensitive and activate even when they come in contact with permissible amounts of moisture.

Apple iPod nano cases in production, surprise no one

Apple iPod nano cases in production, surprise no one

Well, well, well… That rumored touch screen square iPod nano is looking pretty solid right about now. Thanks to our lovely friends in manufacturing in Asia, 3rd party cases have started showing up online for the new iPod nano device. We’re not talking just one either, more like a whole heap — every color possible, too. In addition to cases, there is also a mockup along with sizing dimensions that has surfaced as well. We have to ask, is an incredibly small touchscreen iPod nano something that interests you, or will you stick to an iPod shuffle? Image of one of the cases after the break!

UPDATE: As one of our readers points out… what if this is just Apple’s new Shuffle? Would be pretty amazing, right? More →

More information on upcoming iPod touch, Nano leaked?

More information on upcoming iPod touch, Nano leaked?

According to an iLounge source, the upcoming fourth generation iPod touch will be changing shapes once again. If true, it is said to be more flat than curved, with a flat surface and curved edges; much like the top of your MacBook Pro. Additionally, the back is rumored to not be modeled after the iPhone 4’s all glass surface; so we’re guessing stainless steel or aluminum. There is that much-awaited rear camera, though what’s not clear at this point is a LED flash next to it or a second microphone for audio capture while shooting video. Lastly, that tiny, tiny Apple-branded touch screen display we saw? Well, according to iLounge, it is indeed a new iPod nano, and won’t have anything to do with an iPod shuffle. September 1st is close enough, friends. More →
