Apple unveils sixth generation iPod
- 6 September 2007
The next generation iPod will have a touch-screen and integrated wi-fi, allowing users to connect to the internet for the first time.
Apple unveiled the sixth version of the ubiquitous gadget last night, which will allow video and games to be download direct from the internet.
New versions of the iPod Shuffle and iPod Nano were also launched at the conference hosted by Apple boss Steve Jobs.
The iPod touch will have dedicated icons allowing users to browse the YouTube site and Google and Yahoo search engines.
Starbucks and Apple also reached a deal in which customers can use the wi-fi iTunes store for free while inside the café.
Jobs said of the gadget, which will be in shops at the end of September: “It’s one of the seven wonders of the world – it’s just incredible.”
