    Port in the back tunes mid-range, port in the stem does bass.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:35:54 PM
    The design provides better lows as a result.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:35:58 PM
    Airflow comes in at the base of the bud.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:36:08 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:36:12 PM
    Looks like this could be a paid accessory vs. a pack-in.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:36:20 PM
    Crazy-looking from the side.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:36:25 PM
    Ships as a standalone accessory today.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:36:33 PM

    Yes, they come with the new iPods/iPhones (but not the Shuffle)
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:37:04 PM
    No price on it for those who want to buy.

  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:37:39 PM
    32GB Touch for $249...not bad.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:37:46 PM
    NEW iPod Touch 32GB is $299, 64GB is $399.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:37:55 PM
    Nano and Touch are available in October.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:37:59 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:38:12 PM
    (sorry, $249 for the older 32GB Touch. Seems like two models at the same time?)
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:38:14 PM
    One more color, the product RED models.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:38:17 PM

  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:38:36 PM
    Available in retail, and in the company's online store. Apple has contributed more than $50M to that cause with these models, Joswiak says. Tim Cook coming back on.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:39:01 PM
    Cook showing us an ad about the new iPods.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:39:41 PM
    Ad featuring the Touch to the Nano, down to the shuffle. Over, and now Cook's back up.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:39:44 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:39:45 PM
    So, new Nano and Touch did indeed happen. Makes iPhone 5 feel a part of a cohesive lineup, not a stand-alone product.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:40:04 PM
    Cook providing a breakdown of the new stuff: a new iPod lineup, new iTunes
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:40:12 PM
    I wonder if the iPhone will ever get crazy candy colors.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:40:25 PM
    And iPhone 5, running iOS 6.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:40:41 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:41:04 PM
    DIscussing how they work well together.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:41:27 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:41:32 PM
    (the devices)
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:41:38 PM
    "When you look at each of these, they are incredible industry leading innovations by themselves. But what sets them apart, and what puts Apple way out ahead of the competition is how they work so well together. Only Apple could create such amazing software hardware and services and put them together into such a powerful, integrated solution. Apple has never been stronger, and that's because of the dedication of our employees... they are doing the best work of their lives," he says.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:42:00 PM
    Musician about to come on stage.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:42:06 PM
    "Whenever we have a music event, we like to remind ourselves and our customers of why we do what we do, and there's no better way to do that then to have one of our favorite musical artists to perform." So Foo Fighters.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:42:18 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:42:21 PM
    Impromptu concert, it seems.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:42:35 PM
    Concert time. I can't recognize bands.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:42:48 PM
    They just slid out on stage, performing.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 6:43:08 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/12/2012 6:43:12 PM
    And they're revealed behind the stage, quite literally being wheeled out. Lead singer David Grohl says we're hearing "times like these."
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2012 6:43:46 PM
    This feels like a good time to look back. The iPhone 5 met expectations nearly completely, with few if any surprises. iPods had a few wrinkles up their sleeve.
