The news came after the company announced its new iPhone 5, calling it "the most beautiful product we have ever made."

Although the iPhone 5 is the star of the event, it's been long rumored that Apple would be revamping its iPods, as well. The new iPod nano features a 2.5-inch multi-touch display and is 38% thinner than previous models. The volume controls take up about half the side of the gadget.

The new iPod nano will come in seven colors, including blue, yellow, green and red.
