iOS6 will work on all phones and tablets back to the 3GS.
"we have something near and dear to our hearts to talk to you about today -- music."
This'll be the new iTunes, then. Finally.
New iTunes available in "late October."
It looks like the new iTunes will eliminate the need for a lot of the mini-player apps like Ecoute and Coversutra
350 million iPods sold in total; "we add millions and millions every quarter."
exciting changes to the iPod lineup, starting with the Nano.
"We really wanted to take the opportunity to reinvent the Nano."
a really large display, easy to use controls, thin and light ... and a lightning connector.
The new, 7th generation iPod Nano. A teeny tiny device in the hand, 40% thinner than its predecessor.
the volume controls take up about half the side of the gadget.
2.5 inch display, the biggest ever in the Nano -- and it's multitouch.
It's great to see musical guests back at Apple events. In the past I've seen U2, Norah Jones, Dave Matthews and many more at these things. This is Cook's first.
I hope the video of the event, which Apple will likely post later, captures just how fantastic this audio is. The band's levels are matched to perfection.
And one more song from the Fighters: "Walk"
@jwhitley That's what we're expecting too.
Rumor had it that we'll see another Apple event in October. I'd say that's extremely likely at this stage.
It's great to see all these journalists nodding along while furiously typing.
Foo Fighters have been around 18 years, and this is the first time they've played an Apple event. What took them so long? ;)
