Apple’s New iPod Nano Software is Already Available for the Old Model



Today Apple announced a new iPod nano model starting at $130. While the design of the iPod nano has remained identical to the previous model, Apple’s new nano software includes multiple additions and improvements.

2010 iPod nanos can already get Apple’s 1.2 software update that is starting to ship on the new models. The new software adds multiple clock faces, better navigation, and new Nike+ fitness features.

As MacStories notes, the new user interface in this lastest software update is actually optional for 2010 nano customers. Users can revert back to the classic grid interface in the 2010 iPod nano’s settings.

Check Software Update to get the latest update for your iPod nano.

Now that old iPod nano customers can get the latest software, is there really a reason for current users to buy the new model?
