| Apple usually rolls out changes to its iPhone line each September, and this year was no exception. On Wednesday, the company held a press event in San Francisco, in which Steve Jobs -- making his first appearance at a public event since coming back from medical leave -- took the wraps off Apple's new iPod nano. The music player now comes with a built-in video camera. |
| Other iPods saw changes as well, though those changes were more minor. The iPod touch now comes in a 64GB capacity, with the 64GB and 32GB models running 50-percent faster than before, according to Apple. And Apple cut the price on its 8GB iPod touch to $199. |
Also, Apple unveiled changes to its iTunes software. iTunes 9 now features Genius Mixes for creating recommended playlists of music and movies, Home Sharing for synchronizing iTunes content on five authorized computers, and a new interface for managing iPhone and iPod touch applications.
Speaking of the iPhone, Apple released a new version of the iPhone OS.
