9to5Mac offered their suggestions related to the entry price point for Apple’s upcoming smaller iPad set to be released October 23rd. The entry price will be reportedly between the base model of the new, fifth-generation iPod touch ($299) and the currently shipping WiFi-only 16GB iPad 2 ($399). So, the base model of the smaller iPad will likely be priced at a minimum of $329 in the United States. A starting price of $329 makes sense. The new iPod touch will continue to be cheaper than Apple’s new tablet, while the smaller iPad’s pricing will also be nicely spaced under and between the new full-sized iPads.

Last month, at the media event, Apple introduced the fifth generation iPod Touch. The updated version has a 4-inch screen, the same as the iPhone 5 and a number of color varieties. Apple immediately began taking pre-orders for the device, but in general it will be available in October.
Apple has just released iOS 6, making it available to users of the latest iPad, iPhone and iPod touch models. To get updates, you need to connect your device to iTunes and click "check for updates" or using the menu: Settings-General-> Software update. However, the update can take several minutes to propagate to all users.
About 200 new features have been added in iOS 6, including Maps from Apple, Facebook integration, improved Siri, Passbook e-wallet program from Apple and more.
iOS 6 is compatible with the third-generation iPad, iPad 2, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and fourth-generation iPod touch. The operating system will be preinstalled on the iPhone 5 to be released on Friday, and the fifth-generation iPod touch models set for the release next month.
Apple seems to be adding the final touches on the revamped App Store ahead of the iOS 6 public release this week. As of today, a new page promotes Apple’s own free apps, offering an easy way for first-time users to “get the most out of” their device.
Apple officially unveiled its new redesigned headphones called “EarPods” at the yesterday’s media event. The company explained that the EarPods are three years in the making and posted a video featuring Jony Ive explaining the process of creating the new earbuds.
Other announcement Apple made yesterday was the release of iOS 6 mobile operating system, which was first announced in June at the company's WWDC keynote event and will be available on September 19th as a free download for the 4S, 4, 3GS, new iPad, iPad 2 and 4th generation iPod Touch. The iPhone 5 will ship with iOS 6.
Apple already detailed the specific iOS 6 features that would be available to certain iOS devices back in June. Siri will be enhanced to provide movie information, sports scores, and the ability to post to Facebook and Twitter. The new Passbook app will hold tickets, passes, and payment cards for participating businesses. Safari will have a full-screen mode for better browsing and iCloud tabs to save your open tabs and offer immediate access to them on your other iOS devices and your computer.
Today at its media event Apple updated the iPod touch lineup to a fifth generation model that includes the same 4" screen as the new iPhone 5. At only 88 grams and 6.1mm thin the new iPod touch is lighter than all previous iPod touch models. The new model incorporates the A5 processor.
