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 company noted that it has sold more than 350 million iPods: "We add millions and millions every quarter," Apple said.

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