Apple updates iPod Shuffle

Apple updated its popular iPod shuffle yesterday by reducing its size by half – making it the world’s smallest music player - and the first music player to feature voice synthesis, according to Apple.

The new ‘voiceover’ feature enables the iPod shuffle to speak song titles, artists and playlist names. The third generation iPod shuffle is significantly smaller than an AA battery, holds up to 1,000 songs and all of the controls are located on the earphone cord.

“The amazingly small new iPod shuffle takes a revolutionary approach to how you listen to your music by talking to you, also making it the first iPod shuffle with playlists,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of iPod and iPhone Product Marketing.

The new shuffle comes in silver or black and features a sleek and ultra-wearable design with a built-in stainless steel clip.

The third generation device is now shipping and comes in silver or black for a suggested price of £59 (inc VAT).
