iPod nano update released, adds support for new In-Ear headphones


If you have one of those small, multi-colored nano-chromatic iPod nanos, then you might be in for a surprise the next time you sync it with iTunes. That's because an update is waiting for you; the iPod nano (4th Generation) update 1.0.3 gives your musical friend the following new features/bug fixes:
  • Support for Apple In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic (yeah, the ones we've been waiting for)
  • Support for Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic
  • Fixed instability issues when using Nike + iPod Sport Kit
  • Added a setting to turn off Cover Flow when rotating iPod nano and a Cover Flow menu item under the Music menu
  • When Shuffle setting is set to Songs, pressing play on a song in saved Genius playlist will now follow the Shuffle setting
  • After playing a slideshow with TV out, Cover Flow album art is no longer distorted
  • Waking iPod nano after hibernating no longer distorts photos
  • Other minor bug fixes
If any of these things have been bugging you, you'll be pleased to know that Apple has fixed them. I know I have wanted the ability to disable Cover Flow for a long time. You can download this update by docking your iPod nano (4th Generation) with iTunes, selecting your iPod under devices and choosing "Check for Update."

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
