The upgrade, announced by Apple CEO Steve Jobs at an event in San Francisco, includes new versions of the iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle ranges, improvements to the iPod Touch and iPod Classic, and new version of iTunes, the itp.net website reported.

 According to the website, the new version of the iPod Nano, which Apple says is the world's most popular music player with 100 million sold worldwide, includes a video camera and microphone, to allow users to shoot video.

The screen has also been increased in size from 2 inches to 2.2 inches, while an FM tuner has been built in, although there is still no wireless connectivity, it added.

The new Nano also includes added features including VoiceOver, which tells the listener the name of the track and artist that is playing, and also integration of features from iTunes 9.

Apple's smallest media player, the iPod Shuffle, has a new 2GB capacity version, and now comes in five colours for all versions. A stainless steel special edition 4GB model was also revealed, which will only be available direct from Apple's own online and retail stores, according to itp.net.
