The event held today in San Francisco started off with a bang as Apple kicked the show off with the iPhone 5 unveiling. It was expected they would save the best for last, but no, Apple chose to show off the new generation iPod Touch and Nano towards the end of the show. This made sense since they gave a sneak peak at the entirely new iTunes right afterwards.

> Thinner and lighter with same 4″ display as the iPhone 5
> It will have the same 9 pin “lightning” connector as the iPhone 5
