Apple has this week released a new update for its latest 6th generation iPod Nano, letting us know it still cares about the smaller products in its range.
The new update version 1.1 brings with it two new features including the abilities to completely turn off the iPod and to control music or radio playback using the Sleep/Wake button. Before the update holding the Sleep/Wake button would put the device in to sleep mode rather than a complete shutdown.
Completely shutting of the iPod Nano will initiate the following: (However if you return power to the Nano in less than 5 minutes the device will remember your playlist)
- Music or other audio that’s playing on the device stops.
- Paused radio clears.
- If a slideshow is playing on the device, it stops.
- If a voice memo is being recorded, it stops and saves.
- The pedometer stops.
- Nike + workout data stops and saves.
The second feature is the ability to use the Sleep?wake button to either skip to the next track or radio station, or pause or play the current track or live radio, all with a double-click. You will need to enable this feature within the Nano settings.
You can view more details about the update from the Apple site.
