Customers who preordered their 2010 model iPod touch after they were announced last Wednesday are starting to get shipment notifications today. Meanwhile, a market research firm estimates that more than 45 million iPod touches have been sold to date out of the total 120 million iOS devices in the market.
Lost amidst the flurry of new product announcements last Wednesday is another new feature for the fourth-generation iPod touch: Vibration, similar to what is offered in the iPhone. Meanwhile, Apple’s own product pages contain icons that shouldn’t be on the new media player.
Well, what do you think? Did Apple's Annual Music Event live up to your expectations? The iPod touch refresh did for us, but what about Apple TV? And iTunes 10. What about that? There are some things to like, some things to not like so very much, and ways to fix a few things you liked better in version 9. As always, Mac|Life has it covered.
Join us at at 10:00AM PDT for our live coverage of Apple's Special Event.
We're expecting new iPods, an updated iTunes and maybe, just maybe, a brand new Apple TV.
Apple will be live streaming the event. The live stream will only work on iOS devices with iOS 3.0 or later and Macs with Safari running OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. So if you're running an OS X 10.5 or older, or you're stuck with a Windows machine at work, we got you covered with our live blog.
After the rapid-fire introduction of not one but two iOS updates and refreshes for the iPod shuffle and iPod nano, Apple CEO Steve Jobs moved on to an update of the iPod touch, now more “beautiful” and even thinner than before.
If sources close to Apple are to believed, the iPod touch may be getting a substantial overhaul with the 2010 model expected next week -- and that an earlier leak of a small touchscreen device seen above may actually be the next iPod nano.
Earlier this week we told you about the leaked pictures of the new iPod touch parts, including the LCD and digitizer board. But, if you needed more convincing, SmartPhone Medic has done a side-by-side video comparison between the new iPod touch LCD and digitizer, and the older generation iPod touch components.
According to the video, the newer screen looks identical to that of the iPhone 4, which follows along with the rumors we've been hearing.
Apple will be hosting it's annual music event a week from today at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco. The even begins at 10:00 a.m. Stay tuned to Maclife.com for our liveblog straight from the event.
It's rumor Monday! Or, it's just Monday and the news was a tad slow over the weekend, which is why we've got spy shots of the purported next-generation iPod touch floating on our site. The photos come from M.I.C. gadget, and they show iPod touch parts with front-facing cameras.
