The iPod is still available in white or black, and sports a 2.5-inch display. The 30GB model is priced at US$249, and the 80GB model - which replaced the 60GB version - is $349. Both are available now.

Apple also introduced the all-new iPod nano with a new aluminum body, an incredible 24 hours of battery life and more than twice the music capacity for the same price as the previous generation. The new iPod nano features Apple’s innovative Click Wheel and an even smaller, thinner and lighter design available in silver, pink, green, blue and black.

Like the revamped fifth-generation iPod, it also includes the new earbuds.
The 2GB model is available in silver, and costs US$149. The 4GB model is available in all of the colors except black. It costs $199. A new 8GB model is also available in black for $249. All are available now.

The new iPod shuffle, now the world’s smallest digital music player with Apple’s pioneering shuffle feature that lets music fans serve up a continuous mix of their favorite songs anywhere they go. Nearly half the size of the original, the new iPod shuffle is just half a cubic inch in volume, weighs just half an ounce and features a stunning all-new aluminum design and a built-in clip which makes it the most wearable iPod ever. The new iPod shuffle contains one gigabyte of flash memory which holds up to 240 songs, and is more affordable than ever at just US$79.


The new iPod shuffle will be available in October.
