Apple iPod media events, hardware changes nowhere to be found this year

For the first year ever, Apple held no special media events for any of its iPod line of products. Since its induction in 2001, the iPod has received some form of public promotional treatment every year. It also underwent some hardware changes--sometimes major, sometimes minor--every year, but not in 2013. This could signal an eventual phasing out of the iPod as a standalone music player.

Apple RED contributions applauded by Bono as “leading the crew”

When you've got a company that sells products as successfully as Apple, there's a good chance a group like RED comes knocking at your door at some point or another. For Apple, that time came quite a few years ago - and here in 2013, RED spokesperson Bono has given Apple a round of applause on raising "over $65 million" in the group's efforts to fight AIDS. Bono thanked the company at the 2013 edition of the Clinton Global Initiative this week.

iPod touch, nano, shuffle “Space Gray” means no Autumn reboot

iPod touch, nano, shuffle “Space Gray” means no Autumn reboot

It would appear that a reboot of each of the iPod devices graced with color have been given a shade change this week thanks to the iPhone 5s. The iPod touch, iPod nano, and iPod shuffle have been given "Space Gray" to match the iPhone 5s' newest tone. This suggests that while past years have seen a music-centric event reboot the likes of the iPod touch and/or the iPod nano or shuffle, we may see just the iPad and iPad mini given a new generation of hardware.

Apple goes Bounce with new iPod ad

Apple goes Bounce with new iPod ad

Apple has launched its new ad campaign for the latest iPod line, kicking off with a catchy thirty second commercial called "Bounce" showing the 5th-gen iPod touch and the 7th-gen iPod nano. The clip shows the two new iPods - and their unchanged shuffle sibling - being suitably enthusiastic about music, keeping to Apple's now-traditional theme of a more playful and less educational attitude to commercials for the media player range.

iPhone 5 launch date imminent as 4S included in “recycling” program

iPhone 5 launch date imminent as 4S included in “recycling” program

Apple has launched a program on their own website called Reuse and Recycling in which they're more than willing to take your iPhone 4S for a gift certificate in their store. Of course the main reason a lot of people will be doing this is that once the iPhone 5 (or whatever it'll be called) is on the market, the iPhone 4S might not look so fabulous anymore. To the early adopter "must have it" crowd, that is.

iPod Nano Touch concept gets skinny

iPod Nano Touch concept gets skinny

Designer Enrico Penello is known for his conceptual work in the industrial design world - and not least of all this week for his undeniably interesting Apple iPod Nano Touch design. What we're looking at here is a different direction entirely for the iPod, taking the height of one model and adding the touchscreen of another. Would such a design give Apple designers pause, or would they have a heart attack at the imperfect aspect ratio?

Apple Patents won for iPhone application switching in-call, iPod Shuffle

It appears that the folks over at Patently Apple have found themselves in possession of a lovely cornucopia of newly won patent applications created by Apple over the past however-many years, this including such gems as the second generation iPod Shuffle and the ability to switch between applications during a call on the iPhone. As per usual, these patents don't necessarily point towards anything that'll be released in the near future, and in the case of the iPod Shuffle certainly weren't meant to be kept under wraps for long, but each are interesting to glance upon to know the process. As you'll find here first of all, Steve Jobs name still remains very much engrained in the guts of these transactions.
