It comes in at 38% thinner, the thinnest nano ever created. The device features physical controls along the side, a 2.5-inch multi-touch screen and comes in 7 colors. The nano also gets video again, as well as an FM tuner. Fitness and pedometer are built right in, along with built-in Bluetooth. Apple is also bragging it has the longest battery life of any nano.

Next up, iPod touch. "It's not just a great music or game player - it's a great iOS device. We wanted to make it better, with an all new, 5th generation iPod touch."

It's only 6.1mm thick, which is nearly as thin as the nano. It's also only 88 grams, which makes it the lightest iPod touch yet. The body is made from anodized aluminium. It, too, comes with a larger screen, this one the same as the iPhone 5. It is coming with the A5 processor, which makes it faster than its predecessor. the iPod touch is said to get 40 hours of music, good for even the longest of flights.
