Apple is known for having a "signature" design in their products but there is one specific product that defies this "signature" design. This is the iPod Nano.
There are numerous reports stating that Apple's iPod Nano would once again be redesigned. This was specifically mentioned by Macotakara, a Japanese blog that specializes on Apple-related products. According to the blog post, the new iPod Nano will have a similar look with the 4th and 5th generation iPod Nano with a few tweaks.
The blog also mentioned that the new iPod Nano would sport the return of the portrait or oblong shape of the older models. The only difference is that click wheel (from these models) would not be incorporated. There are speculations that the new iPod Nano would be a touchscreen device due to the fact that it will be more or less patterned from the current iPod nano model without the click wheel. Aside from that, the new iPod nano would also be thinner if compared to the current iPod nano model which is the 6th-gen iPod nano. The new iPod Nano would not utilize the backside clip feature which is featured in the current iPod Nano model.
As for its release date, there are speculations that the new iPod Nano would be officially released by Fall which is the usual schedule for releasing a new iPod nano model. The current iPod Nano model which is the 6th-generation iPod Nano model is available in 8GB and 16GB model.
iPod Nano has certainly underwent a lot of changes in terms of design and features. Despite that, its main feature which is to store and play music has always been its main selling point. There are users who are not really happy with the change in design once again and instead, expressed their desire to just create a simple one that would be able to work with other Apple devices.
