The seventh-generation iPod Nano makes a clean break from the its square-shaped predecessor. It sports a rectangular design (3 inches tall by 1.5 inches wide) and a 2.5-inch multitouch display that shows a grid of six menu icons. The display's 240-by-432-pixel resolution is fine, but viewing angles aren't ideal. Below it is a circular home button.
The Nano comes with Apple's new EarPods that the company introduced on the iPhone 5. And like on the iPhone 5, the headset jack is on the bottom of the device. Unfortunately, the included headphones do not have a remote control.
The slim Nano measures just 0.21 inch (5.4mm) thick. The volume on the right side includes a center button that works as a play/pause and also functions for VoiceOver navigation, similar to the iPod Shuffle.
