Recently Apple introduced a new iPod nano with a multitouch screen and a new Apple TV with an A4 chipset. However it is not clear whether either or both were running iOS unlike iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. According to report the companies kept mum about iPod and Apple TV OS.
It looks like iPod nano is running iOS. Even it has iOS-like user interface with a subset of iOS-like built-in apps controlled by iOS-like gestures. There’s inertial scrolling with elasticity. Users can even put icons into jiggly mode and rearrange them. Well even when demonstrating that during his keynote, Steve Jobs said, ‘Say I that on the home page, I can just push down, jiggle it, and move it, just like I can with my other iOS devices’.
We the user would love to know for certain but for now our guess is whether Apple sees iOS as their future and any effort they put in to new mobile or media devices is going to be put into iOS, including iPod nano and Apple TV.
