Seventh-generation iPod nano gets first software update

Likely adds iTunes support for now-shipping new Nano

Apple's revamped and seventh-generation iPod nano has only just begun shipping and showing up in stores, but users will likely find a software update is needed before they can sync the new devices with their Macs. Rather than update iTunes, Apple has opted to issue an update for the software that comes on the iPod to make it compatible with recent releases of iTunes, iLounge reports. The software update, referred to as iPod nano (7th generation) version 1.0.1, does not list any specific issues or changes.

Users will find the update offered to them automatically upon plugging the new Nano into iTunes 10.7 on a Mac or Windows computer. It can also be updated manually but choosing the Update button under the Version section of the Summary tab. The new Nano sheds the wristwatch-sized form factor in favor of a return to a vertical orientation with a 2.5-inch display capable of showing synced standard-definition videos, and uses the new Lightning connector as well as comes supplied with the new EarPods earbuds.

The new Nano comes in a range of colors but only one capacity, 16GB. It works with Bluetooth headphones as well, and includes a built-in FM radio -- the only iPod model that includes that functionality. The new Nano is available in gray, gold, blue, purple, green, pink or black anodized aluminum and sells for $149. [via iLounge]
