What you need to know
- Apple's iPod nano is long gone but this concept shows how amazing a modern one could be.
- The new concept shows a rounded iPod nano that resembles the AirTags leaks we've seen.
Who remembers the iPod nano? I do, and I owned the very first model. It was cool. But you know what would make it cooler? A screen you can touch and a look that's very much Apple in 2021. This latest concept by Tech Blood proves it, too.
Shared via a YouTube video and a handful of still renders, this new concept imagines what would happen if you created a modern iPod nano. The shape immediately reminds me of the rumored AirTags and the display is, of course, touch-friendly.
And just look at it!
The concept shows an iOS-like interface that is actually its own bespoke operating system. But Podcasts, Music, and even Siri are all present and correct. I think it's fair to say I'd be all over one of these things if Apple let me buy one!
Until then, I'd suggest bagging yourself an iPod touch and slapping it into one of these waterproof cases for iPod touch 7 to make sure it stays in tip-top condition.

Having grown up using PCs and spending far too much money on graphics card and flashy RAM, Oliver switched to the Mac with a G5 iMac and hasn't looked back. Since then he's seen the growth of the smartphone world, backed by iPhone, and new product categories come and go. Current expertise includes iOS, macOS, streaming services, and pretty much anything that has a battery or plugs into a wall.

He's been gaming since the Atari 2600 days and still struggles to comprehend the fact he can play console quality titles on his pocket computer.
Cross something that is dead with something as yet unborn, and that's kind of creepy.
