New iSight camera (with new Panorama mode)
New FaceTime HD camera, 720p video

“You may have noticed there’s a little circle on the bottom of the touch. We call it ‘The Loop’. You push the circle and it pops up a loop for a bracelet,” explained Joswiak. ”…The best iPods we’ve ever done.”

The new iPod touch will release in October starting at $299 for 32GB.

“Let’s talk about iTunes. It’s the #1 music store in the world…I’m happy to report that the store is available in 63 countries around the world,” announced Apple Internet Software and Services Senior Vice President Eddy Cue. ”But over the last couple of years there’s been a trend; more than two-thirds of downloads come from iOS.”

New App Store design for iOS devices:

Facebook “Likes” integrated
Preview while browsing
Improved performance, search results
Complete redesign
New iTunes:

“Dramatically simplified”
Click on an album and it expands in place
New “in the store” feature so users can see top songs and albums
Browse library by artist
Artist has the ability to share photos with users in their library
Split screen view to see full library when adding songs to playlists
New mini-player design—allows users to manage playlists and upcoming songs

So…iOS 6 roll outs Sept. 19, but the new iTunes is available in late October.
