The Apple Let’s Talk iPhone event did have some good news, some disappointing ones (especially the new iPhone 4S with no difference in the external features like design etc.) but in the end, it wasn’t just the iPhone and the iOS that were updated and announced but the Apple Music world saw 2 updates. One was the new iPod Nano with better user interface, and the other is the new iPod Touch.
