Apple iPod nano (2012)

PC Magazine
12 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Apple puts the iPod nano back on track with its latest version, which sports a sweet new design, a larger touch screen, video playback capabilities, and more.
  • Pros: Very thin and light, yet sturdy. Larger, more responsive touch screen than before. Bundled EarPods are much improved. Finally supports wireless stereo Bluetooth streaming. Includes a pedometer and Fitness app. Stellar battery life.
  • Cons: Still no video recording. No in-line playback controls. Not natively compatible with existing accessories, thanks to the new Lightning Connector.

Apple iPod Nano Review (Sixth Generation) Review

Digitaltrends
26 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Grey is the new black, and Apple’s refreshed iPod Nano is… the new iPod Shuffle. OK, maybe that’s oversimplifying a bit, but there’s no denying the overwhelming resemblance of the new Nano to its much cheaper sibling, the Shuffle. A dramatic revamp of the iPod Nano leaves it without video playback, a larger screen and becomes pretty much an iPod Shuffle with a touch screen, and more storage. Has Apple watered down its own Kool-Aid too much this time around?
  • Pros: Almost impossibly tiny, Ultra-intuitive touch interface, FM radio, photo browsing and pedometer, Sleek, solid design, Long battery life
  • Cons: Missing camera, video playback, notes, games, etc., Touch controls limit ‘blind’ operation, Expensive

Apple iPod Nano 2011

CNET
24 July 2010
  • Summary: The sixth generation of the iPod Nano is the smallest yet, but it comes at the expense of valuable features and practical controls.
  • Pros: The iPod Nano costs less than before, is easier to navigate, and includes more Nike Plus fitness tracking capabilities. It's also still the best clip-on music player money can buy.
  • Cons: Many features have disappeared over the years, including video playback, camcorder, microphone, speaker, games, calendar, contacts, notes, and alarm clock. The touch-screen interface is overkill, requiring more attention than the time-tested click wheel design without delivering many practical benefits.

Apple iPod nano (sixth generation, late 2010) review

Macworld UK
7 September 2010
  • Excerpt: No iPod model has received as many makeovers—both minor and dramatic—as the iPod nano. (Perhaps not coincidentally, no other iPod model has sold as well.) The original nano was simply a scaled-down version of the standard iPod—tall and thin with a shiny, steel back and a white-plastic front, but the first revision gave the nano an all-aluminum body. The third version brought a short-and-wide shape, but the nano returned to tall and thin in the fourth go-round .
  • Pros: Multi-Touch screen and iOS-like interface added, clear and easy to read screen, tuning FM radio easier then previous model, ability to rotate interface, full-screen clock.
  • Cons: Nano less usable than it could be, no physical playback controls or compatible inline remote-equipped earbuds, no video recording, no apps, no title bar on screen.

Apple’s second smallest iPod has some nifty new features

Good Gear Guide.au
11 August 2010
  • Summary: Apple has made a (very) minor upgrade to the iPod nano with the addition of some new watch faces in the Clock app, and extra features for the Nike+ fitness app. A cynic would say the new model doesn't offer any advantages for existing iPod owners, but the slightly lower price tag and extra features mean that we continue to think of the iPod nano as an excellent and simple portable music player.
  • Pros: New watch faces are nice, Built-in fitness features work well, It's still a great portable music player
  • Cons: Upgrades from last model are minor at best

Good Gear Guide.au
9 June 2010
  • Summary: Apple's constantly-reinvented iPod nano gets a video-friendly screen and Bluetooth in its latest update. It's a user-friendly device as portable media players go, although it's missing a few features we liked on previous incarnations.
  • Pros: Compact, smart design, Bluetooth 4.0 is useful
  • Cons: Missing features from previous nano, Screen isn't great for video
