Apple iPod nano 8GB 4th Gen

 

Apple's 4th generation nano is the best yet. Could this be the coolest music player available?

There’s no doubt that the fourth generation iPod nano is the best so far. The design is beautiful, even by Apple's high standards, and the user interface is as intuitive as it always was. Crossfade is superb, and makes listening on shuffle even more...

Apple iPod nano

 

The slimmest iPod ever is a truly entertaining ultraportable - buy some decent 'buds and enjoy

A joy to behold, hold and use; upbeat, punchy performance; surprisingly watchable screen

May not charge in some older iPod docks/systems; the headphones remain woeful

Apple iPod nano 16GB

 

Loads of new features and better sound and video - the new nano is all gain and no pain

All manner of features; luxurious, compact looks; class-leading pictures and sound

Video recording isn't perfect; headphones as poor as ever

Apple iPod nano (4th Gen)

 

The nano returns to similar dimensions as the first and second generation models, with the third-gen fatty looking and feeling more like a mistake. In fact, sitting alongside the original nano, you aren't struck by how different the fourth-gen is, but...

Design, shake to shuffle, screen is excellent

Price, no radio

The iPod has always been about design. The simple understated lines of the nano give it an elegance lacking from many competitors. Apple have focused on making the iPod desirable and it has worked, after all, it has achieved iconic status in the face...

Apple iPod Nano 4G review

 

Apple's latest iPod Nano features some new tricks, plus its been overdosing on Slim-Fast

With a slimmed chassis and a boosted feature list, what’s not to like? Apple’s arm-twisting, that’s what

Apple iPod nano (4th Gen) - First Look

 

Short, fat and stubby is out, long and thin is in is the message from Apple when it comes to its new look iPod nano. But will this be the must have gadget under the Christmas tree? We had a brief play at the company's "Let's Rock" event in London to...

Bigger screen, Genius mode, colour option

No Wi-Fi, change in shape but not in features

iPod nano 8GB (4th Gen) review

 

Review: Apple's new iPod nano now comes in nine different colours and has a new 'shake to shuffle' mode

Genius is brilliant ; Good screen size ; Accelerometer

Requires iTunes ; There's no wi-fi ; No touch screen ; Shake to shuffle feature is limited

The world's best light-weight MP3 player just got better. Shuffle to shake is just a gimmick really, but the larger screen and Genius playlists make it an essential upgrade

Apple iPod Nano review

 

Yes, the iPod Nano still exists. It's one of the last MP3 players standing in Apple's lineup , next to the gym-friendly, small-as-a-button iPod Shuffle and the basically-an-iPhone-with-no-cell-service iPod Touch .

The Apple iPod Nano has a sleek aluminum design, FM radio, Bluetooth and long battery life.

With no Wi-Fi, you're stuck syncing music via USB from a PC or Mac running iTunes. It doesn't work with Apple Music subscriptions, and the low-res screen is tiny.

The iPod Nano is an aging music player that's hurt by its outdated reliance on iTunes and lack of subscription music compatibility.

Apple iPod nano 8GB review

 

Apple's latest iPod Nano has the same 2in 320x240-pixel colour screen as the previous Nano (see Shopper, What's New 238), but it's in portrait rather than landscape orientation, giving more room for long lists of songs.
