iPod Nano 7th Gen

iPod Nano 7th Gen

Apple will release the new iPod Nano 7th Gen this month, they like to reinvent their products very regularly as we know but what is so special about this new iPod.

The new iPod weighs a mere 31g which will more than likely feel like you don't even have it in your pocket but don't let that draw you away from purchasing one, it has lots of new features and a new bigger 2.5 inch touchscreen with 16:9 aspect ratio better showing those movies that you might have on there.

There are no click wheels on this iPod just a simple home button like on the bigger iPod and the iPhone's  although it has a circle in the middle unlike the square on the iPod and iPhone, and the power button looks nice on the top of the device and on the upper left there is a nice rocker button With this you can adjust volume and, by pressing in the middle, play/pause music or engage in any of the Morse code-like commands for shuffling or skipping tracks. 

On the bottom are the three forms of connectivity, two ports and a tiny window through which the Bluetooth 4.0 antenna talks. On the left is the 3.5mm headphone jack and on the right, the new Lightning connector, As on the iPhone 5 and the new iPod touch.

It has a similar setup to the older Nano with regards to the iOS like interface and has 2 pages of apps, you can rearrange these to your liking . The Nike+ app is still there and has been made even better in this version by having everything built into the device. You no longer need to clip on a receiver or put an accelerometer on your shoe to track your walks or runs, you can even connect Bluetooth heart rate monitors wirelessly. although the lack of the integrated clip will be seen as a slight step backward by those whose running shorts lack pockets.
