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.

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.
